Love it

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.

Its taken me years to come across this place but since we did we have been here twice! Always been disappointed by Italian restaurants in Stirling, those I have been to have on the whole been disappointing, and not a touch on the places we used to visit in Edinburgh when we lived there. But we decided to give La... More

A lovely Italian restaurant with a fantastic menu and situated in the heart of Stirling city centre. Staff were very friendly and the food was quickly served, yet fresh and hot! Reasonably priced and most certainly the best Italian restaurant in the area. Keep up the good work guys! I'll be back soon!

Have been on numerous occasions and the pizza's are always great. The staff are always friendly, some times they can be a bit slow to bring the bill but apart from that I've no complaints. To me the prices seen reasonable, the quality of the food is good. Worth a visit

There`s nothing fancy about this restaurant and the food is not exceptional, but you do get an authentic Italian meal at a reasonable price, particularly with a lunchtime special. The buffet on Thursdays and Fridays is fantastic value and there`s a good choice to suit most palates. Service is friendly but can be slow. I have to agree with the... More

We visited this restaurant twice while we were staying in Stirling for the Glasgow Games. Really good, authentic Italian food, charming staff who seemed genuinely interested in talking to their customers and great value for money. They were also very welcoming to our our 8 year old boy who loved the Irn Bru ice cream. What's not to like?

We visited this restaurant on a recommendation and had a good italian meal in scotland. The service and waiter (an italian student) was excellent, the food good, the home wine good and reasonable, but so disappointed to be charged an extra 50p for paying with a credit or even debit card. What a waste, an unhappy client who was willing... More
