I have been here often but never thought to offer a review. So, I have had lunch here twice recently as follows: Four cheese Pizza - excellent and you can really taste the different cheeses unlike most places.. Chicken Milanese - really well cooked chicken and just the right amount of spaghetti in a good tomato sauce It seems very... More

Visited this great restaurant for a family birthday celebration. Our waitress was very attentive and helped described one of the dishes I was unsure of. We were all very pleased with our chosen dishes. Starters included delicious mussels, calamari, and meat balls. Our mains were a mixture of fish, chicken, and pasta. All were fantastic, and presented beautifully. If you... More

I was in Southampton visiting a friend who was here on work, we had our heart set on some nice seafood and this place did not fail to deliver. The seafood was primarily on the specials and they had an excellent 2 or 3 course meal offer for £16.95 or £19.95 respectively. We shared a mussels starter which was superb,... More

This busy Italian restaurant offered a slick professional service and decor alongside a cheerful busy ambiance. The food was well priced and the portions were perfect. The menu is simple but varied. The restaurant is marginally over crowded and on busy nights the staff sometimes struggle. Worth a visit.

Booked in on a busy night. staff were attentive and the quality of food was superb. Hard to fault a restaurant that can deliver when the place is heaving, and this place delivered.

We ate here the night before our cruise, we chose this restaurant based on previous reviews on trip advisor and a friends recommendation, we were not disappointed! We both chose one of the house specials a mixed fish combination, it was great value for money, expertly cooked and tasted fantastic.

very busy and buzzing atmosphere when we arrived mid evening. Seated immediately near main door, not ideal but it was the only table available. I had a starter of brusietta with goats cheese which was good and tasty. My main, herb stuffed sea bream with sautéed potatoes and a beetroot salad was absolutely stunning. The fish was perfect, whilst firm... More
