Excellent food, service and cleanliness! If you want a real Italian meal outside Italy, this is the place for you! Pasta is 'al dente' and the pizza is delicious. What a pleasant surprise and all served in friendly surroundings. I would certainly recommend this little Italian restaurant, even to Italians!

The Restaurant was very nice. Good food and service for small price. We had lasagne and tortelloni and a glas of wine. Only point to criticise is that the tables are very small.

We were looking forward to trying this restaurant, as there aren't any other Italian restaurants in the area, and it's one of our favourite cuisines. On the plus side, the staff were friendly and the pasta main courses very good indeed (although our daughter's spaghetti carbonara was a little too peppery for an 8-year-old). On the down side, they were... More

Italian food cooked by Nepalese chef in Scotland may seem somewhat bizarre but the result is great Italian favourites at a very reasonable price. The menu offers delicious (and very large) pizzas to tasty pastas, fish and meat courses and moreish sweets. Service was quick and friendly, and the bill surprisingly reasonable given the quality of the food. A great... More

Walking along the town at night, we decided to try the restaurant. It was very quiet with only one other couple dining there - that should've been the first warning sign. On first appearance inside, the decor was very dated and confusing. It claimed to be an Italian restaurant but it was overpowered with a Nepal flag and posters depicting... More

We are really sorry that you felt unwelcome and unpleasant in our restaurant. We are a Nepali family running an Italian Restaurant. To pass on this message to our customers and to keep our roots to our country we have tried to create both Italian- Nepalese fusion decor in the restaurant. As this is our first year we are planning... More

This reaffirmed my faith in Italian restaurants. Often I find they serve food you could easily cook at home but this restaurant really did produce the most delicious pasta dishes that could not be replicated - other than on Masterchef! Strongly recommend a visit. Top food and great value.

Looking in the window it doesn't look like much, but Dad wanted lasagna for his birthday, so in we went. It was fantastic! Service was great, and so was the price. Food was much better than I had imagined it would be! Don't judge it by its looks, you won't be disappointed!
