“Worth Finding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

We really enjoyed our visit to this Italian eatery in Cleveden. The food is lovely and service spot on. We have been three times now and the experience is good. They also do an early evening menu that is great value. Best of ll we can walk to it!!

“10/10 MARKS FOR CUSTOMER SERVICE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Local restaurant but first visit for us under the ownership of Nico Simeone who is also the chef.
The oxtail ravioli is a trailblazer.with intense flavours, perfect al dente ravioli and melt in the mouth oxtail. Main courses are generous, Perfectly cooked pink lamb for my husband and tender hake for me. I did not really need the chunky and piping hot chips which came late as the main was so filling but but there was no charge in advance of a complaint. Four choices for starters and mains but extensive Italian wine list with prices ranging from teens to hundreds. Our Barbera d`Asti was delicious.

“Lovely food and good service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

We have eaten at this restaurant quite a few times now and have always enjoyed the food. The chef is quite innovative at times trying out new combinations. I do like his risottos either as a starter or a main course but haven't had anything to complain about yet and we have always found the service to be friendly and knowledgeable. Certainly one that we return to again and again.

“Compact menu, well cooked, hits above it weight.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

Great skill in the kitchen, nice upmarket feel to the room - but soul-less. Not really what you want when heading out for nice Italian food - perhaps just me, but the whole designer panache, doesn't work.

The service seemed cool to us - but we're not regulars, so perhaps that was the issue there.

The food is very good though - and Nico is well deserving of the accolades. And what's more, it is very fairly priced indeed.

“Titilates your taste buds”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

Despite the quite atmosphere the staff are knowledgeable, food was delicious and our party of four had a great time. Would highly recommend the oxtail ravioli... and every other dish.
