A group of us met here before going elsewhere to dine. The atmosphere and service was simply great. We have now booked to return for a pixie and a beer or two, can't wait!

Visited there for a work evening meal, there were ten of us and from all accounts everyone had a nice meal, the service was friendly, food was lovely and the place was busy with a traditional italian feel but with a modern twist on the food. Highly recommended and well worth a visit. I fortunately was not paying, but I... More

The menu was good and the range of options was very tempting although I was trying to be good. Had the Scallops then the cod not normally a fish person but it was good, tasty, well presented not overly filling either. Authentic

We went for my brother in laws birthday, prior to arriving his fiancé had called about bringing a cake in. They advised her that she could but would incur a fee of £2 each to eat your own cake, or they could bring it out we all sing happy birthday and it goes in the box. First impressions it looked...

Thank you for your comments. Withing our industry you wil find restaurants that allow outside food bought in, and some that dont. As a rule, we do not as it breaches our individual health and safety rules, however, on this occation we allowed it with a £1.50 charge. Again, this is quite normal, for reasons i feel are very obvious.... More

Visited for our sons 29th birthday. The food was ok but over priced. As there was 9 of us a service charge was added to the bill £22.50 we did not get the extra service I would have expected. The candle was not lit on the table the wine was not poured and topped up for you, the jug of... More

Thank you for you comments. A service charge is very standard throughout restaurants for parties over 6. I have been made aware that this charge was NOT made to you on the evening in question, as your party complained from the outset, making it rather difficult for us to serve you in the manner we are know for. All that... More

Credit where it is due - this is as good as the dining gets in Enderby. It is on the edge of being pretentious, it's got horribly low parking levels and it's a little expensive. But the food is gooooood and really that's all that matters. Some seriously indulgent options are available alongside some reasonably healthy choices and certainly something... More

I organised a leaving party for our colleague at work. The restaurant came highly recommended from a number of people at work. Making my bookings was straight forward with no complications. On the day of the meal I got a courtesy call to confirm everything was still the same, if we would like to pre order our meals. When arriving... More

Three of us went without booking and were welcomed and given a table. The service was excellent and the wine by the glass much better than many restaurants. Lovely food - particularly the rack of lamb and the sorbet. Can see into the kitchens and there were four chefs hard at work - so food freshly cooked. Would definitely go... More

Had a great lunch here while having a business meeting. We shared a meat and cheese platter and a fish platter between 5 of us. Food was good but the service was excellent, very friendly and efficient. They also have an area where they teach children to make their own pizza which was a nice idea.

Thank Darren L
