This restaurant shares a premises ( with Olives cafe who operate during the day) and the couple Alex and Stefi are endeavouring to establish themselves in the restaurant business in St Ives and are working extremely hard in that regard. They are very personable and as a consequence you will feel very welcome at the restaurant. The food is all home cooked as far as we could make out and having visited on 2 occasions during our holiday found much of it to be excellent. Some things you need to know, the restaurant is small and as they home cook all the food the menu is pretty limited albeit very interesting so I would check you are happy with the menu when booking. They also are unable to take cards, cheques or cash are required.
The quality of the food is pretty good and as said I would describe some as excellent and certainly authentically Italian. This restaurant stands up against all the rest in St Ives and should certainly be on your list when looking for somewhere to eat in St Ives. Mention is made in other reviews of the cost and it isn’t cheap. That said you don’t need to have the 4 courses and although they seem to encourage that approach I suggest it isn’t necessary and thus reduces the cost if that’s a concern.
So in conclusion do give this restaurant a try but check that you are happy with the menu.
