We turned up on a Thursday night without a reservation and got seated straight away. The restaurant wasn't busy. We didn't order starters, instead we ordered pizza and pasta dishes with a couple of sides. The wait for our mains was longer than we'd have...More

We hadn't booked, but they accommodated us on a Saturday night. We had the penne delle casa and Quatro Stagioni pizza. Pizza was good. The penne was stated as having gorgonzola in the sauce, very much doubt it though. Not much chicken or peppers either....More

Rustic interior, but don’t let that put you off. Not the usual plethora of menu choices. All food is freshly prepared, so don’t expect it to appear in an instant. My wife had crab linguine, I had Sicilian chicken. Quality/taste as good as we’ve had...More

Lovely food in Topsham. I had the butterfly chicken. Came with a tasty sauce. A bit of a wait for it to arrive. For starters I had calamari. After reading recommendations. And it did not disappoint. Best calamari I have had in England.

The food was lovely and the staff were friendly and helpful but could have been a little more attentive, especially at the start. Service improved as we went on through the evening.

Visited on a Saturday night, hadn't booked but very kindly despite being really busy found a table for us. Food was really good, inexpensive & quite large portion. Friendly, energetic staff up & down those stairs all night. Will return on next visit to Devon.
