Colleagues Night Out

Normally we would go to the River House for our work nights out but after it changing hands , we decided to try somewhere different. This was actually a leaving night for a long term member of staff.

Went to the restaurant with my wife and young son for a lunch buffet. Everything I had was simply great in terms of taste and what they had on offer. However, what my son and I still talk about even seven months later is the pizza. Wherever and whenever we buy pizza we always compare to La Ciociaras. Simply the... More

Lovely wee place for lunch which I have had on several occasions. I've been in for dinner once and that was also great. Not expensive and run by a really nice family. Recommended!

Definitely worth of money. We had four special offers for two (19 quids - 1 starter 1 pizza 1 pasta). The quality of food are much better than we had one in Rome.(it was only two weeks ago, so very comparable) Will visit again for sure.

This is a real treasure in Stirling , great authentic Italian Cuisine and very reasonably priced.(some italians are overpriced for what you get but not here). Great Pizzas, Pastas and some of the tastiest Cozze i have ever tried.Even our Grand kids at 3 and 14 months love it here.

We decided to go for the lunch buffet. Buffets are often not that good, but this restaurant is the exception. We dined on mushroom soup (although bread could have done with being covered it was rock hard). The cool antipasti was totally delicious - could happily just have eaten these. A nice selection of mains and they brought out fresh... More

Couldn't disagree more with the scrambled egg comment, I had the carbonara and it was hot and tasty and would definitely order it again, my friend had the pasta Mario and this was also great and full of loads of fresh vegetables!
