While the restaurant feels quite old fashioned, we were most impressed with the food here - Linguine Vongole was the best I'd ever had, with beautiful fresh clams, and the vegetarian pizza my partner was right up there with the best too, with asparagus topping it off. Tiramisu was to die for. A nice little surprise evening in Hythe -... More

I do not go out to dine very often in the evening but as the restaurant is only open in the evening I decided to try it just once, especially as it was only a few yards from my guest house. There was a very warm welcome and the truly excellent, freshly prepared and cooked Italian food was delicious. Nothing... More

We are on our way home to Essex after a day out in the area today and so happy we booked this restaurant. Was the perfect end to the day. We have been to Italy quite a bit and this meal was so authentic and delicious. It was just as good as many we have had in Italy. They were... More

It started badly when we were shown to our table by the sulky maitre d in a dirty shirt. We were shown to the back of the restaurant next to unsightly cardboard boxes. We both felt like walking out there and then. I wish we had, the food was awful, the wine overpriced and the staff had a don't care... More
