Welcoming staff and an excellent wine list and that is where the praise ends. Service too fast, rubbery Swordfish for main. No warning a member of staff would get up with a microphone and sing off key at high volume making conversation difficult. Ruined the Christmas girls night out which was cut short as we couldn't wait to get away.

Not sure why some people dont like it. The best pizzas ever! Not fancy, but authentic and delicious. We have been on numerous occasions and always go back for more. Some people are never satisfied - if you havnt been before ignore the moaners and have a lovley meal!

My wife and I are intrigued by the mix of very good and very poor reviews - we've been coming here just once or twice a year for quite a few years - en route to the Ferry to France - and have always felt it is a great way to start the holiday! Yes it can be very busy and the service can suffer as a result, but so far we have always really enjoyed our meals - so will continue to use and recommend it! The prices are a little high but you cannot get such a lovely setting overlooking the marina without paying something for it.

An average Italian. It has everything on the menu that you would expect but we chose here last time we were in port solent over the chain restaurants that are all in the same stretch along the marina.

We have eaten at the other Italians in port solent and found this to be the poorer choice of them all.

I would suggest zizi's or prezzo's which is disappointing as it looks to be the most authentic but the food just isn't as good as in the chain restaurants.

If they are full then chance your arm! It's better than going hungary!

Well were to start the evening was going well starters and drinks were fine were can you go wrong with a bread basket ( two part bakes rolls with packet butter) and garlic bread. we ardered our main courses of a calzone and a pasta dish, this is were it all went wrong, the calzone was bland and boring not a traditional calzone at all very poor, and my girlfriends dish was covered in so much oil it was swimming so much garlic you could smell it from a mile away, then to cap it of we found a short and curly HAIR in the dish and apon calling over the manager we was saying it came out of the mushroom which is utter rubbish ive been cooing for a long time and never found a mushroom with hair like that, so he said theres nothing he can do so i called over our waiter and he was very good about it and offered coffee and desert for free but we still had to pay for the food. so i walked over to the manager all he would do was take the money off for my girlfriend pasta dish but that wasnt good enought for me so i was talking to him for ages and on top of that hes calling me a lier as i was insistant is was a hair and he was saying it wasnt so after a while i said im only paying for the drinks and starters thats it. i will never return to this restaurant and i was advise you not to go unless you like rude managers and poor food. and a word in the ear of the managers if you like your restaurant to stay open then clean the toilets and stop putting pubes in peoples food. please avoid !! !! !!
