Picked this restaurant for its 5 star reviews. We found very little atmosphere and very limited menu with no beers available. The Food was nice but we've had better and with no Pizza available,for us it is below average.

Visited Shrewsbury for a few days for the first time and booked an evening meal here for my wife and I. The food was quite possibly the best Italian food we have ever tasted.

dropped in and managed to get an early table. What a find, nice atmosphere, interesting menu and wonderful staff. Definitely a place to eat when visiting the town. We shared a starter of 4 differently topped crostini and then selected a pasta dishes an both were beautifully prepared, we finished with a lovely homemade tiramisu

Saturday night, couples evening. Service was prompt but not rushed in any way. Food was just delicious! Group particularly enjoyed beetroot and goats cheese salad, fillet beef and lamb. Cooked to perfection. Bravo! See you again soon.

Booked here for a Sunday evening with a friend, and had a superb meal. The best Italian food I've had in the UK. I'd definitely recommend this restaurant!

The food was amazing - perhaps the best we've ever enjoyed in Shropshire. Innovative and very well executed menu. The owners were friendly and personable and the service was great. Couldn't recommend more highly.
