“Food plus atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

Once again we visited this real gem of a restaurant, the owner greets with such a friendly manor that you just know you are in for a treat, the food is really good value for money, hot, tasty and with the real essence of Italy , a must if you are in Bowness.

“Lovely!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013

Visited on a Friday night (15.11.13). Had looked at a few restaurants in the area and went for this one - great choice! Lovely quaint little restaurant, friendly helpful staff and good menu choice. Busy but no big waits for food and everything delicious. My husband took the waitresses recommendation and went for seafood spaghetti - he was not disappointed. It was packed full of sea food and delicious. My carbonara was amongst the best I've ever had and a gorgeous liquor coffee rounded the night off perfectly. Just over £50 total - for our bar bill, 2 courses each plus cheese garlic bread, a whisky and a liquor coffee - very good value, particularly for The Lakes. Don't miss out on a visit to this hidden gem.

“Lovely food, a little snug”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

We visited this restaurant with two children, and whilst they were accommodating we had to leave the pushchair outside (which is fine) but not sure if that would mean limited wheelchair accessibility. The service was prompt and the food delicious. We'd definitely return. Value wise we'd have paid less for similar food at home, but the Lakes had tourist prices I think.

“A romantic meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

A couple at our hotel recommended this place and we are so glad they did, we had the sea food starter each which turned out to be massive followed by steak and a bottle of vino and olives came in at £70. The service was great and very helpful, the lass totally changed what we originally wanted and didn't get it wrong, a perfect meal. We will be back! Thank you.
