“Birthday Bambinos”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

My daughter loved it here so much that she wanted to go back for her birthday meal. From start to finish we were well looked after by attentive and friendly owner Leo and his staff. Both children were made to feel special and they even got the whole restuarant to sing Happy Birthday when their desserts came out! A lovely time, meal and drinks had by all. Its just a shame as both kids birthdays are in March as will have to find another excuse to go and visit this super authentic and awesome Italian. Bellisimo!! :)

“Pizza all`italiana!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

As an Italian I like to enjoy a good pizza and this lovely homey restaurant takes me back to Italy every time I visit it! The pizza is very good and the warm atmosphere gives you the original italian "taste"! Enjoy some olives and warm home made bread, get a nice glass of wine and sit back...and don`t forget to try the "amaro" or "limoncello" to complete your meal in the typical Italian style.

“Fabulous Italian Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

In my opinion, finding quality Italian food is not the easiest of searches; the high streets of this country being laden with chains serving ok, yet unexceptional food. However, if you're looking for quality food with friendly and attentive service, you need look no further.
From booking the table to paying the bill, I received nothing but warm, friendly assistance. Everyone in our group was highly complimentary of the evening: food, service, including speed of delivery, the wine was reasonable and the ambiance is often what you bring. The restaurant was not full, yet had a convivial atmosphere, ideal on a wet Friday evening in January. Try it. I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

“Friendly home style food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013 via mobile

Tasty home style Italian pasta, pizza and meat dishes. Friendly staff but service a little slow and the food lacked punch.
