My partner and I regularly meet here for lunch. Service is great and although the food is freshly prepared there isn't a long wait. We usually have one of their lovely pasta dishes, though they also do a great range of paninis and other dishes. We've eaten here for years now and the food is always lovely, really tasty. Great...

A few friends and I planned a Christmas night out on the 23rd and I decided to book in here as I'd heard good things. The staff were lovely, very helpful and the food was fantastic. We all had a lovely meal and it was such a good price. Love that you bring your own alcohol after 6:30! A hidden... More

Family visit for lunch. Delicious starters. Sauté Nochi are delicious. Mains... We had smoked salmon carbonara from the specials. A chicken and goats cheese pasta dish and.... 2 off menu small portions for our children. We were all too full for pudding but illy coffee ended the meal perfectly. One of our favourite restaurants in Lincoln.

I dined here a good few times 3 or 4 years ago,and found the place very welcoming, and the food excellent. Sadly, and with regret I write this negative review now. I realise that inaccurate and hyperbolic reviews are not fair, and can damage a business, so I don't write that kind. So, dropped in to the bodega Italia tonight... More

I came across this place, whilst attending a course, I popped in for a cappuccino, & the owners are lovely, very polite, very well attired, the smells of Italian dishes streaming through, plenty of choices on the menu board & plenty of seating area, the cappuccino however was delicious, so on a break I popped in for another, needless to...

Got there on time at 6:30 and glad we'd booked as it was busy, only sets 16 but that's one reason it's so nice. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the food was excellent and good value for money. I had the Parma ham Ciabatta and Judith had the Garlic mushrooms as starters followed by the classic meatballs... More

Forget all your National Branded Italians this small Restaurant/Deli (and small it is)is the best in town. We have visited quite a few times and have never been disappointed. With only 16 covers it is quite intimate. There is a set menu and also a specials board. We had the prawns in tomato and wine and the prawn arriabata (... More
