Good Italian food and great service

I had dinner here one night while in St Helier. There was a warm greeting on arrival and I was offered a choice of the free tables. A menu was brought quickly and my drink order taken. Food was served in a timely manner and was of very good quality, piping hot and very enjoyable. During the meal I... read more

Having viewed the initial reviews on TA, I thought I must have eaten at a different Restaurant. However having delved deeper, I see we were not the only customers who had a truly bad eating experience. The food here is totally rubbish, and the staff have a ‘get them in and get them out attitude’. I have never seen grey... More

My god, couldn't be worse. £116 for two and rubbish. Moules to start, many of them so under cooked they were runny. Steak was terrible. Got clear message the staff wanted to leave early, rude, talking loudly by us, hurrying us out. Truly awful.

After being seated, we waited about 15 minutes for waitress to come over and get our drink order. Normally, this wouldn't be so bad, however, it was a Wednesday night and not busy at all. Our food only took about 20 minutes or so, which was very tasty. After we got our food service get even worst. We were about... More

We dined here on a Sunday as it was the busiest restaurant on the street, however we may have been better going to another place to eat. The decor is getting tired, the service was impersonal. We were asked if we wanted some bread while we ordered which at the time we thought was a nice touch, however it turned... More

Fantastic menu. All my favourites from yester-year!! Breaded deep-fried mushrooms with garlic mayo dip and Steak Diane (mushroom, brandy & cream sauce). Very reasonably priced, lovely happy staff and great atmosphere.

We had the vegetarian cannelloni and fusilli I cannot explain how disappointed I was, very bland tasteless food. One of the male staff was very rude he rushed us into ordering just because we were going to the opera house, but we had loads of time, couldn't quite believe how much rude he was. The lady waitress was lovely and... More

If you know Jersey, then you know it can be tricky to find somewhere to dine out on a Sunday evening in St Helier, especially in the winter. We went last weekend and had a really good meal. Staff were friendly and attentive, and everyone had decent food. There was a lively atmosphere, which is something that isn't always easy... More
