Plus points = Friendly staff, decor clean and fresh, central location. Minus = starter was wrong, main courses average to dull, young staff though willing lacked leadership and experience. Disappointed as could have been excellent with a little tweaking ?

We had homemade meatballs with tagliatelle which were delicious and the size of tennis balls! a pepperoni pizza, rigatoni Diablo and garlic focaccia. Everyone enjoyed their meal. The food quality was excellent, the service was good with helpful and attentive staff. The smells as you go in were great and there is a traditional wood fired oven where they cook... More

Went into the Hope and anchor (which I put a review on for) but turns out to be this place extended. The food that we had was really nice, the price was a little on the high side but still was delicious. You can see a lot of effort goes into making the pizzas, focaccia bread and even the hand...

The outside of this Italian restaurant is a bit sad and dated looking so we were not expecting much but we were pleasantly surprised when we got inside. The place was busy and looks like it has recently been re furbished. A friendly welcome and good service was what we experienced and although a good choice of pizza and pasta... More

Enjoyed a family meal here the other night whilst staying locally. Experience spoiled for first 15 mins by incredibly loud and inconsiderate family group with kids running amok but once they left thank god things were fine. And I say this as a parent of 2 well behaved kids myself. Our kids had a couple of hand made pizzas which... More

Back in Alnmouth this week we booked in for the early bird menu with a friend. The food did not disappoint and a good variety to choose from.We have been here 4 times now and never been disappointed, well worth a visit probably a good idea to book in advance.

Even on booking the phone call as not professional. On arrival the staff tried to usher us into the bar for a drink when we had booked our meal in advance and had to point out an available table. Service: an hour before first course arrived. Over priced food although meal nice...Seabass for almost £20 and pasta for £18...don't mind... More
