Me and my wife have walked past this restaurant for as long as a can remember, we decided to give it a go last night for the first time. The table was booked for 8 for 4 of us, seated no problems and greeted with a polite and warming atmosphere. Food and drinks ordered, food and drinks arrived with no... More

We went for our anniversary meal and took our 2 year old son. We visited early (5pm) and there was plenty of space. We both chose a pasta dish and bruschetta while our little boy shared ours and had some chips. It was absolutely delicious! Would definitely recommend. Can't wait to go again when we can share a bottle of... More

Visited here to celebrate our sons engagement and once again we were not disappointed. I had the stuffed mushrooms wonderful, my daughter and future daughter in law both had mussels as starters which could have been a main course there were so many. The mains were various pastas which were all superb and the sea bass fillets were cooked to... More

Would recommend this lovely Italian restaurant to anyone. Two course lunch very reasonably priced with ample choice. Food was authentic and the service attentive but not intrusive.

When visiting Stirling recently I was unsure where to eat and found this restaurant, in a fairly good, central location. I had lasagne which was O.K., nothing too special. I also ordered some bread and found it be very thick, was not particularly appealing! Not a huge lover of bread anyway but this was particularly solid. Whilst not having a... More

Without exception everything we ate was freshly cooked and tasty. Staff were very attentive and friendly. Very reasonably priced. Would definately recommend and... More

I visited on a Saturday lunchtime, as I wanted a fairly quick, but decent sized lunch, and they did not look not overly busy. The set lunch menu had a good selection. The mushroom starter was very nice, with plenty of garlic. Pasta main dish was very good, and the selection of ice creams was quite wide. A good quality... More

We have visited here on a few occasions. It is always clean and fresh. Usually customers are greeted by warm and friendly staff. We have enjoyed freshly made Italian dishes and, of-course, the best ice cream that we have come across in Stirlingshire. It is an interesting restaurant with a cafe style setting downstairs and a more traditional Italian style,... More

We arrived without a reservation and were shown to a table by a less than welcoming member of staff. Our order was taken with less than enthusiasm, making us feel awkward and uncomfortable. There was no attempt to offer suggestions, just an abrupt attitude. We ordered a pizza, gnocchi and penne cesarina - perhaps our lack of starters explained the... More
