Ate here on a Monday night during a few days in the lakes and it was great. Very busy but food arrived within 5 minutes. Hot and delicious pasta. Staff were lovely, chatty and very attentive and smiley. Reasonable prices for an expensive area. Would recommend if in the area.

Arrived by chance as it is near to a car park and when we got out of the car there were three restaurants all within 100m. Purely by chance we chose this one and very pleased we were to have done so. I had the aubergine, mozzarella starter, warm and delicious with just the right amount of cheese and tomato,... More

We visted here on a Wednesday night and it was absolutely packed yet the staff could not do enough for you and they were so friendly. The food was fantastic and they didnt rush you between courses which was nice. If I had found this restaurant on the first night I would have eaten here every night.

I've visited this restaurant twice in 4 years when I have travelled to the Lakes for a short break. Highly recommend it. Food is lovely, reasonably priced and the service is spot on. Recommend the Spicey Pizza and home made lasagne. If you are looking to visit on a Friday or Saturday night, ensure you book a few days in... More

We ate in this restaurant two out of five days whilst on holiday in Bowness. This isn't a high end Italian restaurant with fancy plates of over priced food , but a very competent and reasonably priced eatery. We visited Bowness at its busiest , when restaurants get full very quickly every night , we went early bird which meant... More

Very good food and service. We went here as our first choice was strangely closed (on a Wednesday!). Definitely not the best Italian I've ever been to and prices were about average. Certainly worth visiting.

This restaurant has to be tried if you are in the area. We had our meal delivered within 30mins and could not fault the food at all. I love Italian food and if I ever in bowness again I will definitely return here.

Booked a table for two only a few hours before we wanted to go in on a Tuesday night (in the middle of the school holidays) so we were prepared for a wait but we were shown straight to a table. Drinks arrived quickly, as did the starters. Ribs were full of meat and sauce and the minestrone soup was... More
