This is a very nice restaurant in the village of Castleton. The restaurant is nicely decorated in a modern style, spaciously laid out yet cosy too. The staff are friendly and attentive. The food is mainly Italian themed (pasta, pizza etc.) and is very good too. We had a pleasant relaxing evening here. Check the opening days / hours over... More

Ate here on two consecutive nights at the end of October. Lovely decor, cosy and comfortable. Food excellent and the menu is extensive including pasta dishes and pizza. Great selection of starters plus breads/nibbles. The wine list is very competitively priced. Service was good.

Went on a Friday evening after booking, a very nice ribeye steak with very nice crisp chips and fluffy in the middle. Wine list good and reasonably priced . Service was attentive without being in your face although could have been better at the end. Would go again and would recommend.

Had a lovely meal here last night. Dropped on it by chance and was well worth it! We weren't booked in but the staff were very accommodating and very friendly. A beautiful Italian restuarant, well worth a visit.

Had dinner here with some friends on their recommendation, but was rather underwhelmed by the experience. The menu was unimaginative, and some of the dishes were unavailable that evening despite our booking being early evening. My husband's pizza was too doughy and lacked adequate topping so was rather tasteless. My steak was cooked well but simply served with a few... More

1530 was perfect - lovely ambience, great service and a great meal. The menu choices are imaginative and varied and the meals are great value. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and we felt very well looked after. All in all a really great dining experience and will definitely be back soon. Many thanks.

Visited on last night of a week in Castleton. Excellent food and wine, service friendly and prompt but not over-attentive. Good range of well-prepared and tasty Italian dishes - my garlic mushroom and spinach bruschetta starter and king prawn linguine main were particularly good, as was my partner's seafood pizza (called the Squashed Crab because it's on a squash base...
