Great little place to eat!

This little Italian restaurant is a gem! Visually its your typical 'rustic' looking Italian with 'distressed' paint and all the usual Italian decor knick-knacks. The food, however, is the star. Thankfully there's not a pizza in sight, but instead a much more original menu than in your average town... read more

Paid a visit for lunch, family of four, and we got full rustic Italian decor and fine food. Service is friendly and efficient, food very good. Excellent bruschetta, great lasagne, and the pastas served were excellent too. Side salad proper Italian. Highly recommended, we'll be back.

First ever visit. Fabulous menu, great choice. We all choose different starters, main and puds and all were very satisfied with the quality and quantity of food. Rustic surroundings and good staff. Didn't feel rushed even though a busy Saturday (and rugby) night. Even received a complementary Lemoncello at the end of our meal. Certainly visit again and recommend.

Second visit, a little disappointed. I got the salmon starter it had no taste and did not enjoy it. Tasted as if it had been sat in a fridge all day and drained of taste. My husband had carpaccio of beef and enjoyed it. Both had risotto for main, husband had seafood risotto and enjoyed it, I had asparagus and... More

Being a local we used to come here often as the food was absolutely brillianr. However after a few disappoinrinf experiences in the last 6 months we have stopped going. The staff is still very friendly, but the menu has changed or is being prepared differently according to my taste buds (a new chef maybe?). Also on Rugby days only... More

It is one of the best value for money restaurants and my favourite Italian. The price is very low especially during the week for lunches (you can get a starter a main and a drink for about £12) So I would grade this restaurant ££ not ££££ that is really strange. The quality of the food is also fantastic and... More
