I ate at this restaurant on a Saturday evening with my boyfriend. We had a table booked fortunately as the restaurant was packed. That said, the staff were very helpful and attentive. The food was beautiful and possibly the best Italian I have had in Sunderland. I would defnitely recommend it and look forward to returning.

Good job it wasn't a romantic meal for 2! Order taken. Garlic bread and cheese arrived seconds later ?? Burned to a crisp. Hard.... More

There was a great atmosphere, we had some nice house white wine, looking around most people had pizza/pasta, which all looked lovely, but we opted for chicken dishes, both of... More

The service was very good and the food... More
