Wow, what a find! A tiny restaurant and ice cream parlour, don't blink or you'll miss It! Excellent service and superb food, individually prepared and beautifully presented. I can recommend the crab cakes on rocket starter, followed by a mouthwatering linguine with fresh scallops. My companions enjoyed tri-colour avocado or delicate garlic prawns, with main courses of either home made... More

We really wanted to visit the restaurant. When we arrived at 6 p.m. the restaurant was still closed (we have booked the table), so we decided to go to the Quay and have a walk and come back in ten minutes. When we came back it was still closed, while it was cold outside, so we decided to choose other... More

Lots of choice to eat out in Poole - I think I saw at least 3 Italians. We were very impressed with both the food and service here. Would definitely recommend.

Booked in advance, food was awesome as was the service. Small seating area adds to the ambience of this lovely little restaurant.

A small and charming restaurant. The waiter was very knowledgeable and recommended dishes and was able to fully explain them. The portions were a good size and my steak was cooked to perfection. I will definitely be eating here again!

Dropped in at this cosy little Italian restaurant in Poole and was so glad we did. Lovely food and very good service. Nice ambience, nicely decorated in Italian style, and pleasant Italian music in the background. Will definitely go back here when we're next in Poole.

My wife and i went here after reading the good reviews and i very glad that we did. The food was amazing and the staff are very friendly. My wife had the Ravioli on the special menu and I had the Tagliatelle Diva which was very nice. Nice red wine too.

Absolutely delicious! Truly authentic Italian, from the low key facade to the incredible veal I am now debating to go back again tonight for the second night in a row of our two night trip!! They are more than happy to turn the pasta dishes into primi piatti, to make it a truly authentic Italian dinner. I had the tortelloni... More

The restaurant looked very normal from the outside and we just popped in for a quick meal, but once inside it was a very nice place with a good atmosphere. The food was excellent, really well made Italian food, with great care clearly gone into each meal. It also has a good gelato bar. I would seriously recommend.

Thank Olivia L
