“Not an Italian Foodie but Could Be Converted”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014

First time , but probably not the last.
Everything from ambience, staff , food and service was top class, we could not fault a thing.
The food was plentiful, very tasty and the whole experience was top drawer.
Will be back and if you like Italian Food this is the place to dine in Blackpool.

“Pigeon weekend In Blackpool”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014

Me and my husband had a lovely meal, there was a long wait before courses, got through two bottles of wine waiting. Food is very nice our bill came to just under £ 100 so its quite pricey which I don't feel reflects on the value in all honesty

“That was very very good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014

Arrived early at about 7pm and the restaurant was already busy. We thought we would have to wait for a while but were shown straight to a table. Even if we hadn't, we would have been quite happy to have a few drinks in the bar area. From the minute we were greeted until the time we left, everyone was very friendly and with a good sense of humour as well. It was a thoroughly enjoyable evening and we are so disappointed that we haven't eaten there more regularly. Very reasonably priced and more than happy to pay for that type of quality. We will be back very soon!
