I visited here today I just happened to spot it and remembered it being pretty decent on TripAdvisor. Having been to Italy a few times I can say it really reminded me of being back there, the staff were friendly and the food was high quality for a very reasonable price. I had 2 fillets of seabass with black pasta in lemongrass the skin was crisp the fish was moist no bones, the pasta was tasty and not greasy it was al dente and I enjoyed every bit of it. The desserts were similarly authentic and delicious. If you want a cheap pizza from a crappy chain Italians then don't bother going. If you want something more authentic, great food and exceptional prices then give it a try. It is up a little alley off Grey street easy to just wander past. I'm looking forward to going back next time I'm in Newcastle.
