Old fashioned traditional cuisine

A fabulous find in a small town which could be hindered by its location and only attract local trade. The food is beautiful, well cooked, seasoned and freshly prepared. We felt like we were transported to a small Italian mountain village and eating with 'Mama's family'. Exceptionally good value... read more

A fabulous find in a small town which could be hindered by its location and only attract local trade. The food is beautiful, well cooked, seasoned and freshly prepared. We felt like we were transported to a small Italian mountain village and eating with 'Mama's family'. Exceptionally good value and service was beyond expectations. Pizzas are to due for!

We were recommended this restaurant by two different people. We were not disappointed. It's a bit like going back in time somewhat. No one should be put off by the old-fashioned looking red checked table cloths. The welcome was friendly and the staff (Michelle on her first day!) excellent. The food was super. We had starters of avacado salad and... More

Small and warm place. The food was great, the service even better. We have ordered five different pizas and all of them were good. Another thing was to watch the locals coming in for lunch or to pick up something home. I think it's a recomendation on it's own.

I eat at the dolce with friends and for celebrations, the warmth of the welcome and quality of the food doesn't change. Last year, for a friends wife's 'big' birthday and took over the entire restaurant not only was everything hot and delicious, the staff were all extremely helpful and went out of their way to make my friends evening...

i will start by saying that the food was absolutely delicious, I had the pasta dolce Italia and my husband a pepperoni pizza. Both dishes were delicious and the portion size was generous ! The service was lovely and friendly and the atmosphere was great. I would highly recommend that if anyone wants to go for a lovely meal out... More

A charming Bistro with a well thought out, home made menu with changing board specialities and a good selection of desserts. Excellent value and quality. Good wine selection but hard to beat the house red. Good service and charming host. Not the poshest restaurant in Farnborough but definitely my favourite.

Reasonably authentic but basic Italian restaurant decor. Not necessarily the place for a romantic evening and has an adequate, if not limited, menu. Alas, as with many places it is obviously struggling as it seems to use cheap ingredients, for instance if they had swapped the tomatoes for ripe, good quality ones the the Bruschetta would have been very good....

Enjoyed a visit with reviews spot on - lacks ambiance with too many lights but house red wine is excellent. Host charming and mains good quality, freshly cooked. Bought in desserts a bit disappointing. A good value Italian and would return, though not for a special night out.

Went here on a Friday night after reading the reviews on trip advisor, the place was busy but not packed, which was nice. the décor was standard stuff with red checked table cloths, but with the lights on full, it gave the appearance of a café rather than a restaurant. The menu was also standard fare, but was disappointed that... More
