Me and my boyfriend ate here last week expecting just a bog standard Italian, but as soon as I got my starter I realised it definitely wasn't. The presentation was beautiful and the taste didn't disappoint either. The Staff were very friendly, making the experience more personable than other restaurants. THEN I traveled to my home near London and realised... More

We went here with 4 generations for a family Sunday lunch. The food was good and well presented, and the children enjoyed making their own pizzas with the Chef. The service was good and the staff friendly and helpful. Recommended if you are looking for somewhere to eat in Matlock.

We started with the Bruschetta Originale - beautifully presented, different, delicious - followed by the mushrooms stuffed with cheese, breaded and baked - I've forgotten the menu name, but this was fabulous! Three good sized mushrooms with almost a blue-cheese tasting cheese stuffing. We then split a Tropicana pizza (ham, mushrooms, pineapple, topped with a handful of fresh rocket). Crust... More

Arriving at 8pm, with getting out drinks and waiting for our order to be taken we didn't receive our food until 9:20pm which by that time we could have eaten anything. I ordered the chicken, which I had before and enjoyed, but this time the portion was disappointing and it was a bit cold (but I didn't want to wait... More

We arrived more in hope than expectation having not reserved in advance - but we were accommodated immediately in a friendly manner. The food was very good and the service matched it and, although we didn't relish listening to the Accordionist he was actually very good and made for a good atmosphere.

While staying in the surrounding area for our first anniversary, we wanted to have a lovely romantic meal out and were lucky enough to have this place recommended to us. Welcoming and warm, once they found out that it was our anniversary, despite being massively busy, the fabulous staff just couldn't do enough for us...the girls were friendly and efficient... More

Outstanding resturant that I'd recommend to anyone. The presentation of the food was as good as the taste. The service was fast and friendly. I visited with my fiancée and we even got a sparkler with our dessert when we told them that we had got engaged earlier that day!
