This is a fantastic tiny restaurant with a great atmosphere and excellent service. We had booked for a special meal and were not disappointed. The food was excellent, the wine good and very good prices too. It is just a shame it is not nearer home for us. It is quite difficult to find if you are from out of... More

I went to this restaurant last night with a group of friends. What a little gem! The food was lovely and the mussels in tomato and chorizo starter was delicious! Nothing was too much trouble and the waitress made us all feel very welcome and relaxed. We will definitely be returning!

my wife and I took our 6 year old daughter here as she insists on eating Italian food every time we go out and it was great fun. The owner is really attentive and accommodating , the restaurant feels like someone's front room at christmas and the food was excellent value. She had no gavi on the menu so went... More

Having read the reviews for this restaurant I thought this would be a good place to take the wife for her birthday, knowing that we love to try independents rather than the chain restaurants in Norwich. We were met with a warm welcome which only comes when people are genuine, what great hospitality, we chose the Scallops and King Prawns... More

Was welcomed by the restaurant owner who instantly made us feel welcome & settled. We ordered drinks, I was given a taste of wine I wasn't sure of & was delish!!
