Small and cozy with really good food

The restaurant was quiet so lost a little in atmosphere but... the staff were great, friendly, helpful and happy. The food was top class. They were happy to adapt the menu to suit us. Pizza was superb, plenty of cheese, lovely crust. Pasta was also perfectly cooked. All in all a great experience... read more

I have reviewed this gem of an Italian restaurant once previously, but felt it appropriate to return to Tripadvisor, as I have read some of the not so positive reviews and feel that a balanced overview would be helpful to would-be diners. My wife and I, since October last have made this restaurant a weekly trip, such is the consistent... More

We ordered for collection, tried the pizza with garlic bread and was not disappointed, both flavoursome. The only downside was the queue to pay when I collected but I took that to be a sign that I was in for a treat with the food!

Excellent evening meal. All t three courses were excellent and it really helps the head chef/owner is Italian and cooking real Italian food. Definately going again

Have driven past many a time but never been in before this week. A small and compact eatery on two levels which also has a takeaway service. We were totally amazed at the food!,my husbands fillet steak was one of the largest we have ever been served and it was cooked exactly as he requested. The soup was home made,... More

Lovely Italian restaurant in Chorley. Food is great. Pretty good value for money. Unlike other Italian restaurants, especially the ones I know in London, or should I say, used to know in London. Since we have moved from London to the North West, I must say, here in my new home town, I just love this little place. The food... More

Excellent! Home made Italian food. The pizzas are to die for.. very thin base, but delicious... try the "La Rocca" with Parma Ham and parmesan shavings. We are working are way through the menu.. our other favourite is the chicken livers - fegatini.. again delicious and a very large portion! Friendly, family service. You will not be disappointed! We love... More
