This super little restaurant is just a short walk from Inverness Rail Station, up a slope on St Stephen's Street. The decor of the restaurant is rather eclectic - a mix of red gingham tablecloths, tiffany style wall lamps, art deco mirror, industrial tubular overhead lamps and black and white shots of 50's movie stars. Somehow, it works. It is... More

Happened upon this place when we couldn't find a sushi restaurant but was well worth it. Staff was attentive and friendly but the food was the real star. Best Italian food I've had in all of my travels, hands down. Do not pass this little gem by, highly recommended!

We had a lovely family meal here. My lasagna was very nice, although the very small one piece of garlic bread could have been more. The deserts were very nice, as was the house wine and the service was good also.

We had a reasonable evening meal here on the last day of our Scottish trip. There was no pasta as a starter on the menu so I asked for this. The waiter didn't seem keen on letting me have this, but when I asked again he agreed. The pasta and meatball starter was nice but could have been hotter. The... More

We had planned having lunch here with my girl for months. We didn't get disappointed. Great food and service from the Spanish speaking "Italian" staff. Great job guys!

Visited on a Friday..... Similar to the previous visit, everything was excellent and well cooked. Carpaccio to start followed by a Calzone (best in town) and then the Tiramisu to finish. The young lady who served us was very good and attentive If I had to raise a question - why is the Tiramisu the same price as the Tiramisu... More
