we spent 4 days in the area for new year and ate at the Italia (& its sister restaurant) 3 nights out of 4. We fell in love the first night with the warm welcome, the attentive staff and the yummy food.

Spent a couple of days in this beautiful town between Christmas & New Year and found ourselves eating in this lovely restaurant on both evenings. Our first visit saw us eating early to escape the winter's cold wind, this turned out to be a blessing as we benefited from an early bird offer of 50% off. Main courses of Crab... More

We visited on a wet Sunday evening in November and the restaurant was very quiet but so was the rest of the village. We were given excellent service that was more than just prompt. Two of us shared the smoked salmon and prawn starter and I'm glad we did - two cornets came and was easily enough for two. We... More

Ate here twice for dinner during the last week of October, service was good, food was lovely (I can recommend the surf and turf and fillet steak with black pudding) and the price was very reasonable.

I visited with my wife for an evening meal. The service was polite and prompt. We both enjoyed our food. Unfortunately, the restaurant usually has real ale available but they had ran out.

We have had mixed experiences of the service when dining here but return due to the quality of the food. Our most recent visit offered both great service and food! Booking is recommended as the restaurant gets very busy. Tables are also offered in the adjoining bar however try to get in the restaurant if you can for the authentic... More

We ate here on the 31st October and it was our second visit. Fitting for a coastal village it prides itself on fresh fish. I had mussels in spicy tomato sauce for a starter and it was one of the best tomato based sauces I've ever had with mussels or with anything for that matter. The bread was a little... More
