A delicious meal. Serves great seafood, meat and vegatarian cuisine. The nicest meal we had. It also serves great pollo milanese, which I had. The desserts ( esepecially panna cotta and tiramisu) are brilliant. If you have young children, ask for a child's meal as the portions are sizable!

We could not get a table when we just called in so made a reservation for the following night. It is not too big a place and the service was good. The food was typical Italian, cooked well and nicely presented. Would eat here again when next in town.

Well after reading the recent trip advisor reviews I was a little nervous about going even tho we have been numerous times before. Easy to book a table, great greeting on arrival. Lots to choose from on the menu. Proper sized magners bottle which other restaurants don't do. All of our party had different starters and main courses which were... More

We had this restaurant recommended by the owner of our guesthouse and we weren't disappointed. Delicious food and huge portions. We were the last to leave but didn't feel hurried and they spent time finding us a stopper, so we could take the wine we hadn't drunk, with us. Will visit again when in Whitby.

We arrived on a fairly busy evening. The maitre'd asked if we had booked. With a heavy "no" (thinking we'd be turned away) he gestured to a small table by the stairs. I had a tomato and cheese salad which was perfect and I looked forward to the main course. That's when it started to fall apart slightly. I should... More

Enjoyed a lovely meal with friends recently. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the atmosphere was very good. The food was excellent we really enjoyed all of our three courses. I would not hesitate in recommending this restaurant.

Early dinner with our 3 grandaughters on a Saturday evening at 6.00pm. Been here before, kids really liked it. Again, good patient service from the young guys on duty. Children obviously went for the pizza pasta options,which were standard fare though declared 'delicious '. My wife and I had a starter that I can't remember, but , ignoring our rule... More
