“Real Italian food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

Family run restaurant - wholesome Italian food - nothing fancy. Delicious food and plenty of it - don't go if you're not hungry - and good value for money. Relaxed atmosphere. Would highly recommend.

One of the few places still open when I start my night shifts. Great coffee and very friendly. Always very welcoming even more so to their locals.

“THE best chocolate cake in Cambridge”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

We have been coming here as a family since I was tiny.
Brilliantly priced, tasty Italian food. The chocolate cake in particular is absolutely amazing, as is the apple crumble.
Lovely atmosphere, very relaxed, and the roof garden is lovely in the summer.
As for the staff, they are so warm and welcoming and truely brilliant people who are always happy to talk. They are true friends, and always go the extra mile to make your visit enjoyable.

“Great coffee, warm atmosphere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

I was looking for something else which was closed and while waiting for it to open, I decided to have a coffee and there I stumbled upon this lovely italian place with the lovely lady who was very nice and friendly and she made a very nice coffee and definitely made the place very lively! I can recommend it to anyone.
