This restaurant has for us first class service, good tasting food along with plenty of choices. Time between each meal was perfect. Well worth a visit.

Based on trip advisor reviews, myself and my wife decided to give this restaurant a try whilst on a New Year break to Torquay. Some of the reviews mentioned the decor as outdated, I prefer to say authentic. The menu is plentiful, with something for all tastes. My Wife had Mozzarella and Ham In breadcrumb for a starter which was... More

Friends booked this restaurant when we visited them as they had dined there previously. All we were told was that this was a very small restaurant that did great Italian food. From my experience what an understatement this is. The restaurant was busy and with our party of five, the restaurant was now full. The decor is typical (in my... More

This little restaurant is really a little gem! The food is always excellent, with a great selection on the menu 'just like mama used to make'. Always a warm welcome and great service. Lovely selection of Italian wines hand picked by Lorenzo...including my personal favourite proscecco. Fantastic value for money and a great evening awaits...for family parties or romantic meal...

Just wanted to rate this place as a brilliant place for a get together. The Christmas menu was great and the food all came out hot and tasting absolutely scrummy. Thank you both for a fabulous evening.

We are locals and wanted good food and good wine to complement good company. A local gentleman, Giovanni, who taught Italian cookery for years had recommended it as an authentic restaurant run by an Italian couple. It was a good recommendation. The veal was excellent, Frutti de Mer pizza was tasty and the gluten free pasta with gluten and dairy... More

We read the reviews and booked on the spur of the moment. The restaurant itself is poorly decorated - it really needs a makeover. The starter was nice (goats cheese) but required little cooking skill. Undressed rocket as a garnish- no offer of salad dressing / Parmesan/salt and pepper throughout the meal. My OH has veal which he really enjoyed.... More

Dear Rita, thank you for your feedback, if they are constructive we value also the "average" ones and we are sorry you considered us that. In our opinion the restaurant is not in need of a makeover, we have been searching for retro gadget and décor as this is the style we think is more suitable to our cuisine which... More
