“Fantastic restaurant in all respects.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

Have just had our second visit to this restaurant. The staff are fantastically helpful and hastened our food as we were going to a show. The food was absolutely fantastic. The best Italian restaurant I have ever eaten at. Will make a point of eating here every time we visit Blackpool. Cannot praise the standard of food enough.

“Not bad......”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012 via mobile

Good waiting staff and friendly atmosphere.
Good with children, we went with a 21 month old.
The kids pizza was much nicer than the adults one, my sons was lovely, mine was a little burnt, a little over priced.
My girlfriends pasta was really delicious but the portion was so small it was like a starter, she left hungry, which was a shame, she just wanted a bit more but she didn't feel able to complain or ask for more.
Garlic bread to start was really good.
Service was good and staff seemed friendly.
Would go again, but would probably try somewhere else next time as wasn't overly impressed.
It just needed to be a little bit better for our repeat business.
