This is one of the best restaurants we have tried in Stirling. We discovered it when buying ice cream (delicious) at the cafe downstairs and decided to come back for dinner. The Menu is simple with good selection of pasta, pizza, meat & fish dishes. Wine menu is not extensive but well priced and our wine was very nice. Friendly... More

We lunched here when shopping in Stirling for kiddies' shoes with our two Scottish grandchildren & their mother. The (tasty) food was I have to say pretty standard fare, but the ice cream is really top notch - and well worth a return visit.

While we enjoyed all of the Scottish food, the menus were pretty limited to the same basic items. We found this place and stopped in for lunch, a veal dish and a pizza, both great. We popped by on our way home one night and grabbed a pizza to go, again really great flavor. On our final visit we had... More

We selected this restaurant because of its good reviews. In all we were not disappointed. The service is very friendly and quite intimate. The vino was good and well priced. My wife had Caprese for starterwhich was presented as cherry tomatoes and mozzarella balls on on a skewer with aniseed tasting English basil. That was the only disappointment as we... More

We found this little gem as we walked past. There is a little pub / cafe downstairs and a more formal restaurant upstairs. We received a warm welcome especially considering it was a Sat evening and we had no reservation. The food was delicious, cooked well and fresh. It was full of flavour and a decent size. We would highly... More

Each year my family and I travel from Singapore to spend two weeks in Scotland. We always end up going to this delightful restaurant. Throughout the year when we order pizza at different restaurants we always compare to this one and each time we always come up with the same answer: the best pizza ever is from La Ciociara in...

We had lunch here, sitting outside in the sun. The 2 course menu for £8.95 was excellent - both taste and value - and the staff were friendly and attentive

First visit and would definitely return. Hot food was hot, cold food was cold, just as it should be but isn't always the case. We tried a selection of starters and main courses and were very happy with everything. Husband has the house wine which he said was lovely, it was obviously drinkable, he got through a carafe which was... More
