Lovely surprise

Just enjoyed a really tasty authentic Italian meal. The atmosphere is more cafe style than traditional restaurant but that added to the experience. This was our first time in Stirling and walked passed many restaurants before choosing this one. Glad we did.

A friendly restaurant with food that genuinely tastes Italian. The coffee and cakes are lovely on a chilly morning and the food is great, especially if you choose carefully or get the staff to advise you. The pizza is great, like the pizza you get in Italy rather than the American style ones. I found the portions generous and the... More

Went here for our ruby wedding with family. Great starters, my daughter had a massive bowl of mussels more like a main course than a starter. My antipasta meats and seafood was superb. The lasagne was superb and the sea food risotto was brilliant. But the ultimate compliment was when my son stated the spaghetti bol was nearly as good... More

Went for lunch in march 2015. We had the lunch special was seemingly good value but when you look a little closer its far from it! I had lasagne £7.95 plus £2 sur charge and ice cream. My partner had gnocchi and ice cream £7.95 plus £1. The lasagne was tasty but it was about the size of a starter... More

Seems a busy place for meals and ice cream. We just had tea and coffee and a scone and jam. Coffee was strong but enjoyable but we were only given a tiny amount of milk between us! Soap dispenser in the gents was empty but after pointing this out it was quickly replaced. Maybe try lunch another time.

Visited this restaurant with my partner for lunch and we were both impressed with the authentic Italian food and cosy decor. We would return if back in Stirling however we felt the service could have been better. It doesn't take much to smile but the food more than made up for poor service.

Pretty sure this is my favourite place to get lunch in Stirling! We go here all the time. I like their set menu (about £7/8 for 2 courses).

Visited this restaurant for my sons birthday in January 2015. We received a warm greeting on entering , and after confirming my reservation were offered seats in the upstairs dining area. We were soon served by a friendly waiter , and waited only a short time for our starter then main course. We had ordered from the lunchtime two course... More

Great family meal out. Fantastic selection of ice creams. Friendly welcoming staff and really appreciated the limoncello at the end of the meal.
