“A lovely dining experience not to be overlooked”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2011

Party of 9 (local) adults visiting this relatively new Italian Restaurant for the first time. Situated in the heart of Scarborough close to all major hotels and ideal for tourist dining. We took advantage of the special Wednesday evening menu of 3 courses and a soft drink for the inclusive price of £12.95. Plenty of choice for each course and the vegetarians were also pleased at the choice. A lovely seating area and bar to the rear to peruse the menu. Try the ricotta and spinach pancakes (the lightest I have tasted).yummy!
Each course was met with oooooooh! at the presentation, absolutely delightful.
Staff were very efficient yet unobtrusive. Service was good and we were not rushed. Lovely dining atmosphere for the romantics and parties without noisy children and loud background music. All the party agreed that this was the first but definitely not the last visit.

“Excellent value for money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2010

The food, service and prices were first class. I believe Claudio cooks all the food himself, but unfortunately we never saw him. One tiny criticism, the ambience would be greatly enhanced if the waiting staff were Italian also. This would improve the authenticity. We would definitely recommend this restaurant.
