We love this independent, family-run, spacious Italian restaurant. Six of us enjoyed an excellent lunch here last week; assorted starters with steaks, chicken, pasta and pizza - all different dishes and all excellent. Fresh, well-flavoured, good presentation and generous helpings. (Which explains why no desserts!) The staff are perfection: very friendly & helpful, while the background music is low-key Italian...

Menu is fairly standard pizza / pasta with a few other bits, mostly reasonably priced. We all ordered pizzas which came fairly quickly and were cooked... More

We eat here regularly during the summer sailing months, especially on a Sunday night once we have arrived back and have moored up. It has a lovely spot overlooking Port Solent marina, and you can have a fabulous, reasonably priced pasta or pizza dish, as you watch the sun set.

Venues like Port Solent are normally the preserve of the chains and it is a refreshing change to find a restaurant that actually feels that it has its own character. It has the feeling of a family run business and you get friendly engaging customer service rather than someone that has been taught to follow a script and is constantly... More

Having received some bad news I needed to cheer up my wife so we went to this restaurant where I was sure we would have a nice meal. It was a lovely sunny day so we sat outdoors on the boardwalk.

We went for lunch and the food was very authentic, also the staff were very attentive. They seem to cater for families as well, it is a lovely place to visit the only trouble was the weather wasn't very good, but a ho.
