Two friends and myself visited this restaurant on a Saturday evening. One of us was local the others drove from Bristol. The outside looks so very inviting and interior decor was fresh and bright with tables well spaced out. None of us chose from the specials offered or pasta. I found the dishes quite '70's in style with items such... More

This was our second visit and we were only there for lunch. The service was attentive but relaxed. The food was excellent and absolutely fresh. The price was high but very agreeable given the quality. Top tip. Don’t plan on being there for just an hour.

This place was recommended to us by neighbours as the best Italian restaurant for miles around and I now agree with them. The flexibility of the menu is great as just about anything can be prepared as you wish it, with the proprietor suggesting different dishes and accompanying sauces. It is now my favourite local restaurant and somewhere to take... More

Three friends and I went on a lovely evening for a meal. This was my first visit but my other friends have sung its praises. As expected the food was excellent and so was the experience from start to finish. The grilled lemon sole was fantastic and cooked to perfection and the desserts were very tasty as well as offering... More

All of team, including the owner, were very pleasant and helpful. We had the pasta and risotto dishes for main and then desserts. All of the food was delicious and enjoyed by my... More

Absolutely amazing food. Must book in advance as always busy. Good for a treat or special occasion as very pricey, but worth every penny once you eat it.

As always a warm welcome by the staff. Lovely ambience, excellent food and the desserts are to die for !! All home made by Adrianna. This restaurant is right on Clevedon seafront which is convenient if you fancy a stroll before or after your meal.

Many restaurants come and go but this restaurant remains one of the best restaurants in the Bristol & North Somerset area. The family have been in the restaurant business since the 60's and the have the same main staff and chef, rare dedication these days. This depth and length of experience shows in the food and service. No gimmicks, fads... More
