I chose this restaurant as I had been here before and really enjoyed the food... I have to say on this occasion however I did not. The starter which I got was calamari. It just didn't taste anything like it. All I could taste was the grease in the batter which straight away put me off. I also got olives... More

The interior of this restaurant makes it worth a visit just to marvel at the Victorian tiles. The added bonus is good service, tasty food and great prices.

Totally gob smacked at how beautiful the interior of this restaurant is! Used to be an insurance office! Service was very good, not at all obtrusive. Food was excellent, duck breast with pancetta and grapes in a red wine jus served on a bed of shredded cabbage. Certainly hit the spot after a long drive from Aberdeen. Situated a five... More

I stopped here for a quick bite to eat with a friend on a night out in Newcastle. The food was good, we both had a pizza, and service attentive and quick, which is what we were looking for. Pricing was very reasonable. The interior is very ornate. I would certainly come back next time I am in Newcastle and... More

We just popped in for a bite to eat. The mushroom brushetta was gorgeous but I was disappointed with my Tagliatelle Ariabiatta. The pasta was over cooked and the sauce could've done with a bit more seasoning. The restaurant is in an Absolutely Stunning Building. It's just a shame the meal didn't live up to the amazing location.

Very pleasant and attentive staff, who encouraged me to speak in Italian. Very extensive menu and very reasonably priced. There are a lot of good Italians in Newcastle, but secondo me this is the best.
