We ate here last night. Really lovely. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Food was very tasty. Not to expensive either. The restaurant was very busy. All tables full yet we didn't have to wait to long for food. Would definitely recommend..

Fairly centrally located and only a short walk from the north pier, this restaurant has been decorated to give the impression of eating outdoors and it works well. Offering quite an extensive menu, the food is very good and well presented, and reasonably priced too, as generally are the drinks.

Food could not be faulted.. It was delicious! and the prices were very reasonable too. The service was brilliant, they were very welcoming and could not have done more to help. Would definitely come here again.

Fell upon this restaurant by chance and gave it a go, went back a couple of days later during a Northern Soul weekend in Blackpool. Can honestly say this is some of the best Italian food I have ever tasted, my missus agrees, and she is of Italian extraction! The food here was top quality, it had a real home-cooked... More
