“A real Italian restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

We went there with our daughter and granddaughter. The restaurant is authentic simple Italian. The service and food are impeccable. You have to take your own wine but that is not a problem. We could not fault it.

“It's like being back in Italy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

Had a Lovely Panini and hot chocolate, it's run by an Italian, and it's like stepping into an Cafe in Italy. Will go back to try a Pizza or pasta. Easy to find in Paignton at the end of Hyde Road, where the Italian flag is.

“A little Gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

The Restaurant is a small no frills restaurant, but the food and service was outstanding. Well worth a visit if you like Pizza or Pasta
