Typical italian - lovely!

We visited whilst on holiday in the area found the food to be delicious and the service great. The price we paid for our meal was maybe a little bit more than we would pay at our local italian restaurant but we couldn't fault the food.

A gem hidden away. Arrived late evening and hotel restaurant closed. Came across this place and had a most lovely meal. Service was as delightful as the food

Had a meal with 3 work colleagues and found the staff and food to be first class, Pizzas, Chicken dish and Lasagne were all excellent and at a reasonable price. I would definitely visit them again

This place is fantastic! From the door you might be tempted to not go in. Do! The restaurant is in a cellar, with seating for about 25 people. The menu is extensive ... it took me 25 minutes to choose! I took my family, all agreed that their meals were very good indeed. I can attest to the Pizza Bomba... More

Fantastic food , better than much of the food I had in Rome last year. Great service and a wonderful atmosphere. Beef carpaccio starter was delightful and huge portion. Pizza cooked to perfection and beautifully fresh ingredients

Visited on a Monday night and there were no problems getting a table. Friendly welcome and our wine was served while we decided what to eat. The whitebait and avocado salad were tasty, but had we seen the size of the pizzas we might not have bothered. The pizzas were excellent, and as we had been walking all day we... More

We had a little bit of a problem finding the place using the GPS. We didn't realize it was down the little alley, and then downstairs. But we did find it, and are glad we did. My son and I both had the lasagna and my husband had the penne al prosciutto. The prosciutto wasn't very noticeable. One thing that... More

we went there for a Valentine's Day meal in the evening - they were one fo the very few restaurants who DON'T put their prices up or put on anything special or show-y. The food was excellent and all cooked on the premises.

Beautiful Italian food, cooked with care, served with attention to detail in delightful setting. We went for lunch but it would be fantastic for a romantic evening meal (just take care of the stairs)
