This is a lovely Italian restaurant with a small conservatory area and two larger areas inside for eating. There is music playing from the 60's and 70's which suited all of us nicely. When you sit down each person gets a pack of Grissini (bread sticks) not your usual plain ones but these ones have herbs in too so were... More

We've eaten here a few times now & this time again didn't disappoint - my wife's steak was cooked to perfection with lots of freshly cooked vegetables & my pasta was spot on bursting with flavour. The Resturant has its own charm and the staff very attentive even though it was very busy. It may cost a little more than... More

Popped in with two friends for an evening meal - would normally have gone to the excellent 1812 restaurant in the Royal Exeter Hotel over the road but unfortunately they were fully booked. Service was pretty dire - as soon as we sat down they were trying to take the order. Two of us thought we'd push the boat out... More

The staff were friendly but the restaurant was a bit 80's but could be nice if they decorated a bit to brighten it up (around the Windows needed some attention as well and the chairs needed replacing). It was quite expensive for what you get. The beer tasted watered down and the pizzas were just pizzas - no garnish and... More

Took my ten year old to Bournemouth for two nights, we decided we wanted pizza, and headed to this local restaurant, near to the Pier, we were not disappointed. We were seated in the part at the front by the windows, which was quite nice. We ordered drinks and looked at the menu, quite a good selection. We ordered a... More

We ate here early in the evening. The staff were polite and prompt which was great. Most of them spoke English but one couldn't and had to get someone else to answer our questions about the food. When the food came out we were surprised at how small the portions were for the cost. It tasted good but there wasn't... More
