Small but nice Italian restaurant. Rather expensive, but the food is freshly cooked. Tables a bit cramped together, Good friendly service.

We visited a few nights ago and when we arrived, we were hurried into the restaurant after we were told they would be closing soon (at 20:30!) which was a bit odd. For mains, I had the beef and chilli pizza, which was the worst excuse for Italian food I've come across. Also, it seriously calls into question their claim... More

What a delight - first visit though walked past it before. Superb food well presented. Enough choice to suit taste or budget. Good atmosphere, friendly staff. Great choice of wines. Will definitely visit when we return to Bowness

We were advised to book, which we did, however, it wasn't necessary as it was never completely full while we were there (around 7-8:30pm). However, this was a Thursday, so perhaps it gets busier at weekends. When we arrived a couple of tables had young children, who were very loud. However, both of these groups left by around 7:30pm, so... More

My wife and I so relished our first evening when we specifically went for an Italian meal that we immediately reserved a table for two days later. This was to enable us choose from the superb English menu. We thoroughly enjoyed each of the three courses including a barbary duck "mains". Lovely welcoming staff who added greatly to the occasion.... More
