Breakfast for eight! Descended on the restaurant without warning. No problems with a short wait for our food. Food arrived piping hot and delicious. I had scrambled egg on toast which was spot on and only two pounds. Others had a full English with everything. Four pounds fifty for a really decent breakfast. Cannot fault the place; yes it could...

Half term in Exeter this week meant the usual central Exeter restaurants all had lunch time queues, a quick walk down to Barnfield Road had no such waits and my lunch guests were impressed with the 1, 2 or 3 choice lunch dishes. My son was impressed with the portion sizes of his pizza, pasta salad trio. Everything is good... More

Possibly the worst lunch I ever had to pay for. Not very clean and over priced. I won't be recommending this place to any one.

most authentic Italian food we have ever eaten outside Italy. Go back time and again and it never fails to deliver in taste, value and choice. Very helpful friendly staff who can answer all questions regarding the menu, wine is okay, beers coffees and soft drinks all good.

Ordered the lasagna and whole garlic bread. The lasagna was read-meal-esque and lacked flavour and substance but the garlic bread was probably the best I've had! It also reminded me too much of my old school canteen when I walked in. Only been the once so my judgement is only based on that visit and that meal.

Love this place! Very friendly staff, service with a smile and makes you feel valued. Always good range of vegetarian options, today we were offered 2 types of pasta and 1 risotto on one plate! Absolutely delicious food, very good value, nice relaxed atmosphere.

These are my last few days here in Exeter, so today I decided to try this restaurant near High Street. It's like a self-service where you can choose lot of typical italian dishes such as salads, pasta and pizza. I had only an half pizza and pasta with meat, aubergines and tomatos. Pizza is very much far from italian standards... More

Myself and my partner have been visiting this lovely place run by a fantastic, welcoming family for years. We popped in for lunch on Valentine's Day and as usual were not disappointed. The choice of Italian dishes on offer is broad, exceptionally fresh and always filling. Nothing is too much trouble for the owner/managers and even on the bleakest Winter... More

What a lovely evening! We booked a family table for 6.30pm after reading fantastic reviews. We were not disappointed ! Sadly we were the only diners but this did not ruin the atmosphere! We could not have been made to feel more welcome than we were! The service was the best, warm & friendly, nothing was too much trouble. We... More
