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.

Went here with my two young boys and had a lovely meal. Was a tad more pricey then we are used to, but we are from the North East so we expect to pay a little more here. We were made very welcome. Would return again if we were in the area

We ate here on Saturday 27th September. We received an incredibly warm welcome, the service was attentive throughout the meal, the food was very tasty, and the restaurant had a lovely, intimate feel to it - it is certainly a little hidden treasure in Farnborough that is well worth a visit.
