We stumbled on this restaurant off the back of a short costal break having taken time off work after a house purchase had fallen through. The service was impeccable throughout and although the restaurant wasn't busy, the atmosphere was boosted by a great musician singing a mixture of classical and contemporary songs in Italian at perfect volume. I opted for... More

We thought we'd try something new this evening. We decided to try this lovely little Italian restaurant in Seaside. We were not disappointed! Great food, served in good time with friendly and quick service. Thanks to Tina & (Young Italian water... sorry we can't remember your name!)

We received a warm welcome from the Italian owner, who was most generous in allowing my wife to sample a variety of wines before choosing even though we made clear that she only wanted to order one glass. The fresh pasta - strozzapreti - was perfect, soft but with a 'bite' as one would hope to find in a traditional... More

Excellent food and service. One of the best Italians I have experienced. We had bruschetta to start and had homemade meatballs and a Calzone for our mains. Excellent quality. Good service, Also had a live singer on the Friday night we visited.

Am I missing something as some people found this restaurant amazing but please,what is amazing? Firstly the ambience was cold. More like an American diner. We thought it italian but they were playing South American music so was getting confused! The waitress was helpful, can't fault that. The pasta tasted average. It was like a bought in heated up meal.... More
