Have been twice in the past month, and lots of time before and never disappointed. I love how they are the only place in Inverness who can cook pasta without destroying it. I hardly never order pasta when eating out but have done here on the past 3 occasions and had a different dish each time which was cooked very... More

Very quaint little restaurant for a relaxing dinner. Menu was fantastic with plenty choice. We had calamari and meatballs to start which were very tasty. Husband had the pork loin in red wine with vegetables which was very tender and sauce was excellent, my pasta dish with Italian sausage was a bit on the bland side, sauce was a bit... More

This is our go to restaurant in inverness, we try to go at least once a month. The staff are brilliant and could not possibly be any better. We compare restaurants in italy to this place as it is that good! Avoid the chain restaurants and give this place a shot and remember to pre book!

Great place for an informal meal. The restaurant is just off the Main Street and is easy to find. The restaurant is quite small and the decor and ambience are very nice. The service was excellent and the food very good.

Visited here on a Monday night at the end of November and we were lucky to get a table as we hadnt booked and they were busy, and we had been concerned that it would be really quiet and lacking in atmosphere. Its a Buzzing little place with a fantastic friendly and laid back atmosphere. Staff are great and we... More

The size of venue is ideal for what it delivers; intimate atmosphere with good quality food. Pizza's were fantastic and service was apt. I would imagine it would require booking at peak seasons and weekends due to it being a smaller establishment. Pick this over any of the chain pizza restaurants in town.
