Went here for a meal was very nice, not what I was expecting but still nice for a wee bite to eat and to have a laugh with friends. Staff were friendly and the food was good 😊

I ordered an aubergine starter and it was so unpleasant it was not edible, had an after taste of sick and I'm not sure how that's even possible. Chicken Milanese was dry and no flavour at all. Considering this meant to be an authentic Italian restaurant the food seemed... More

This is a gem, food is delivered over several floors and the place is usually packed out, no surprise as the food is fabulous with staff eager to please. The menu is great even for a GF man. My only surprise is that I don't go more often.

Excellent value, great food and excellent house wine at £3.50 for a large house red wine. If you want something better you will have to leave Aberdeen.
