On a recent visit to Scarborough my wife and I came across this restaurant. The menu was relatively short however it stated that every item was freshly cooked. It was an early Thursday evening and the restaurant was not busy but it had nice vibes and we decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed. It lived up... More

On a short break to Scarborough with our grandsons age 9 and 6yrs we found this restaurant by chance when looking for somewhere to eat. The menu was extensive and we were made aware of children's portions. Our grandsons are hearty eaters so we chose from the main menu. They both chose Linguini alla carbonara. I chose the Pollo con...

Visited ad hoc without booking. Had been previously and there are refurbs going on currently. However this doesn't really impact on the ambiance. Service was good and reasonable prices. I had the 'Fillet steak 4oz wrapped in parma ham served with red onion marmalade and rocket' which was cooked to perfection, medium. This was really nice. It was accompanied by... More

I have written numerous reviews for this place so now only feel compelled to write one when there is something different to say. Yet again I am amazed at the continually changing menu that reflects what is both seasonal and local. For starter I enjoyed prawns in a Catalan sauce of paprika, wine, garlic and chilli. Plump prawns cooked properly.... More

The menu is much rationalized since our last visit and the staff are completely different, whereas before it was authentic Italian it now appears to have changed hands. The staff are not as knowledgeable and the dishes we had were bland with little taste. The lady who served us appeared not to know the difference between linguine and penne pasta... More

Went as a group of eleven on golf tour. We had been recommended by a local. Our first impressions were not great. After ordering beers, some served in Pepsi glasses, we were told credit cards were not accepted and advised where the nearest cashpoint was. The temporary wine list had I think 3 reds and 3 whites. Nonetheless we stuck... More
