Chose this restaurant based on the reviews on here. Happy to confirm their reputation is well deserved. We had the 3 course express menu for £12-95. All the food was very good & portion sizes were generous. My wife & I had the suckling pig for our main, it was cooked to perfection & well presented. Friendly & attentive staff.... More

The friendly helpful staff made us welcome and were attentive. It was recommended by the landlady in our hotel as being one of the best locally and she wasn't wrong. The meals were well presented and delicious - the wine was good too! We booked the day before so were able to get a table and I suggest if you... More

Good position on the Promenade but slightly away from the hustle and bustle of the many other restaurants. Family run (a bonus) and run extremely well. Very friendly staff, nothing too much trouble and very welcoming. The best Italian restaurant in Southport. I have no hesitation in recommending a visit here.

Probably there are no many Italian food lovers in Merseyside who are not already well aware of this outstanding Trattoria in Southport. Perhaps, the term "Trattoria" may be an understatement as you are certainly served top auality restaurant dishes. However, the atmosphere remains warm and informal as you would expect to find in a well run Italian Trattoria. Once again,... More

I was very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. Everyone in the party enjoyed their meals. The portions were very generous. The shellfish was fresh not frozen, the pasta was perfectly al dente and all the food was well presented. A very small gripe - the mussels could have been hotter and finger bowls should have been provided.... More

Been here a few times and never been disappointed, the food's always fresh and really tasty (especially the Calamari) . Recently recommended to an Italian colleague, so hopefully he feels the same way!!

We went to this restaurant purely because of the reviews I had read on Tripadvisor. It was a very pleasant experience, the food was good (but not exceptional in my opinion) and the service was very good also. They were quite obliging in that I asked for a variation to a dish (I asked for chicken to be added to... More

We went on a Sunday evening out of season, and it was completely full, with a long wait because we hadn't reserved a table. We decided to reserve a table for the following evening, which was also nearly full. So the first piece of advice is always book a table in advance as this place is clearly a lot more... More
