Decided to have lunch here big mistake food overpriced waited almost an hour for it to arrive and when it did was disgusting. fish batter undercooked salad dry and frankly looked like it had been thrown together by a toddler pasta that was a far cry from the standard u would expect from a genuine Italian family run restaurant.

My wife and I went for a bite early afternoon and for dinner later the same day. Both times the staff were very polite, helpful and the food was excellent. We had great time and we feel lucky we found this place as it was one of the plus points to visit Sterling.

Popped in with my 5 year old daughter for a quick tea when late night shopping. Ordered at 6.20, no food until 7.10!! Surely a kids cheese pasta and a spaghetti carbonara shouldn't take this long? My daughter's cheese pasta was inedible, the sauce tasted terrible like the cream had split and curdled. It was taken off the bill when... More

Great quality Italian and very good value. Quality, authentic food, not the overpriced soggy pasta and tomatoes that you get in some Italians. The buffet (on Thursday and Friday lunchtime) is unbeatable value. Roasted vegetables, frittata, soup, olives, loads of different pasta dishes, chicken, fish, pizza and pudding all for about £7 a head (sorry, can't remember the exact amount!).... More

Visited not too long ago through a recommendation of a friend. Was a good experience. Nice staff and cute decor. I had the bruschetta for a starter which was nice, and the spaghetti bolognese. It's a nice place to go for an afternoon lunch especially on nice sunny days where you can sit out on the patio!

We had once eaten a few doors up with tragic results, but this Restaurant is a real delight. Lovely bruschetta followed by Gnocchi with a great mushroom sauce for me and Deep fried Mozzarella followed by an amazing Pasta with Salmon for my Wife. The Salmon dish was particularly well judged as the amount of Salmon balanced perfectly with the... More

I used to stop by here every once in a while when I went to uni in the area and recently stopped back in for the first time in two years. Not only did the staff recognize me but the food was just as good as I remembered! Perfect central location, right by the Murray Place bus stop and directly... More
