“Great Family Birthday”
Reviewed June 2, 2014

We (close family) often use this restaurant as its close to home. Welcoming staff, good food and always very accommodating. However they surpassed their high standards when my wife organised a surprise meal there for my 65th birthday. They looked after my wider family, younger members at 18 months right upto 80 years making sure the youngsters didn't get bored and providing a good range of dishes to suit all tastes and dietary requirements. Everyone enjoyed making their choices and eating the tasty food. The atmosphere created by Jimmy and his attentive colleagues is always friendly and welcoming. Ideal restaurant for those family celebrations and other happy diners will join in with the singing of "Happy birthday".

“A local favourite”
Reviewed May 26, 2014

A local favourite; lovely food, friendly service.

The Italian food here is very tasty, authentic and completely reliable. A good range of drinks are also available.

At lunchtime the hustly, bustly, local atmosphere is charming and inclusive. In the evening it would be fantastic if someone could ask them to turn the TV off, as it spoils the atmosphere that would otherwise be convivial and lively.

Book if you want to go in busy hours, but if you haven't booked, turn up anyway as they will always try to squeeze you in if they can.

A favourite local - and would be even more fab if they turned that TV off in the evening (but I said that already!)

“Italian Gem found in Fishponds, Bristol”
Reviewed May 25, 2014

Rainy evening on way back to London from Cardiff, needed some sustinance ~9pm. Happened across this little gem.

Really friendly atmosphere and staff. All customers seemed very happy.

Starters were yummy, my partner loved his main course. Really tasty, simple and flavoursome.
Didn't have time for desserts, as needed to head back, the coffee let it down slightly. It was OK, just not fab.
The ladies was clean, but could have more done with them.

Price was £37 for x2 starters, x2 main, x4 soft drinks, x2 coffees, really good value for money.

I rate it excellent overall for the entire experience, warmth and welcome.
Would definately return.

“Last supper!”
Reviewed May 16, 2014

We took our son here on the eve of his wedding. He was meeting friends locally so we had to go fairly nearby. This destination really is a no brainer.
I have been here plenty of times with family and friends. Every time we get a fabulous greeting from the owner - he always shakes my hand. Nothing is too much trouble - my daughter has a very young baby - he always makes sure that every age group is catered for.
The food is freshly made, very reasonably priced. Don't expect fast food here - this is a place where food is to be enjoyed in the company of friends / family with the patron ensuring all is spot on.
This is one of my favourite places - highly recommended.
