Delicious food

Visited with my friend who lives locally. Had the most delicious meal. Lemon sole with asparagus. Will certainly be visiting again when I am in Bowness!! Started off downstairs but rather dark so moved to upstairs where it was lighter.

we have eaten here now many times, some of which have been last minute reservations and they always manage to squeeze us in. The staff are fabulous and very attentive and friendly. The food has always been tasty and is very reasonably priced. Family friendly and very welcoming and we will most definitely be visiting again real soon!

Great place to eat with friendly staff. Has a nice atmosphere and the food is excellent. A must for lovers of Italian food but need to book in advance as it is always full.

Me and my partner chose to eat here after viewing a competitively priced menu. This restaurant is a little hidden gem set away down a pretty little tunnel. On arrival we were greeted by a number of helpful waiters and waitresses. We shared chicken livers pan seared in chilli and a beautiful bottle of puglian red, I notice even amarone... More

Poor food, one of the prawns was clearly out of date. The food lacked flavour although the atmosphere was okay.

Visited this lovely restaurant on my recent trip to the lakes as it had good reviews on trip advisor. I was not disappointed. Great service and the meal was really excellent. The place is tucked away but worth searching out, great atmosphere.

The food was really tasty and the atmosphere was really good, a small restaurant a little hidden from the street. I had the Melon to start (lovely and refreshing) the pizza dough was melt in the mouth good. Would highly recommend this restaurant if you visit Bowness
