Took my wife for her 30th with our 2 kids and my mam and stepmum. We all loved it, Staff and food were superb. Brought out a birthday cake which we dropped off before we turned up and was no hassle. Thank you for everything.

35 of us went there on Friday for a work do. We pre ordered but the service was great and the drinks kept coming. There was no hassle at the end for splitting the bill. I had the penne al pollo or something like that and it was beautiful. Just the right size too, I often eat out and there... More

Seven of us plus baby went for a Sunday afternoon meal. We were made to feel welcome and well looked after. Great window table with plenty of room. The menu range is typical of a good Italian and they have a great happy hour range of meals (12-6pm). We had a mixture of the offer and normal menu and they... More

We were only in town for a couple of hours whilst our train 'turned round' and needed a quick stop for a meal - 2 adults and 2 children. Very handy to the station good menu, well prepared food, and very accommodating. A very late lunch on a Sunday.

Definitely the best Italian food in Carlisle! We go regularly because the happy hour is too good to pass up on! £6 and its served all day 12-6! Service is excellent and it's definitely worth a visit, only downside is it's always busy (not a bad sign!) but it can be a bit noisy because it's a smaller restaurant, but... More

The restaurant was extremely busy and noisy with a large party of people. However this did not detract from the lovely food, great service and good, very welcoming atmosphere. Nice location opposite the City Gate, I would definitely eat there again.
