We where unsure if they could fit us in as it seems you need to book the good restaurants in Windermere but we where lucky and got a seat. The food and service where very nice

Stopped by today off spec we got a table outside which nice and was served quickly by friendly staff. We ordered a pizza with a side of chips a bottle of cider and a soft drink. The drinks and food came very quickly and was very tasty at a reasonable price of £26. The owner was seeing over his staff... More

Good Italian with nice service, excellent garlic bread, lasagne and pizza. If you need a good pizza it's an excellent choice. Worth a visit.

Turned up for an evening meal without booking and even though they were really busy they squeezed us in straight away. Atmosphere was great and the staff were very attentive. We had a basket of bread with oil and balsamic, mozzarella garlic bread and 2 pasta dishes. All very nice and reasonably priced. Would visit again if in the area

We booked to go here on the first night of our midweek stay in Windermere. The restaurant was only half full for the whole time we were there, yet we felt that from the moment we walked in, the staff were keen for us eat up and get out as soon as possible. We ordered a (not cheap) bottle of... More

Visited this weekend at the end of a very busy week for a quiet tea. The food was good, I had the carbonara, which was lovely and there was a lot of it, I couldn't finish (I gave it a good go!) My husband had the sirloin steak which he enjoyed, though he did say that the chips were a... More

With a lengthy wait and rude staff this back alley establishment was substandard to say the least. In addition I was almost certain that the vast majority of the staff's Italian accents were not infact legitimate accents. But in fact faked accents to attract foolhardy punters. All in all a very sinister place.

Spur of the moment decision after leaving it too late to book another place we had in mind. Very busy place and could probably do with one or two more staff who didn't stop rushing around. Service didn't suffer though, we were attended to quickly and didn't wait long between courses. We both had pizza, nicely cooked and tasty.
