Great food

Great food but service was a bit lacking sadly! Food 5 out of 5! Service 2 out of 5! Fish mixed grill was massive enough for 2!

Amazing! Can't rave about this place enough. Food was incredible, service was great, staff were really friendly but not pushy at all, very helpful and pleasant. We went back a second time in the week were in riva, and the same treatment once again! We were remembered and made to feel very welcome. The atmosphere is lovely, beautiful fairy light... More

Love, love, loved this very authentic italian resturant. The host was extremely welcoming and the free glass of prosecco on arrival went down a treat! Visited for lunch. Great food and drink here. Try the chicken and courgette curry dish with salad. Also the view of the nearby Chuch is great. Amazing!!!

Although this wasn't our only reason for visiting, the free glass of prosecco was a nice gesture! We all had the special...

Food was ok however, the waiters were very rude! They were... More
