Excellent food, and good value too. Traditional Italian menu, though pastas and risottos have interesting twists to their sauces. Mixed antipasti starters (vegetarian option if you want) are copious and full of flavour. Good value wine list, attentive and friendly staff. Only criticism is the noise levels can be high, as it is a fairly small room with lots of hard surfaces! Will always eat there when in Portsouth area.

Although this place was quite lovely, I can't help bu feel it was more the company I was keeping than the place in which I was eating. On first look the decor is a little basic and the furniture was that of a greasy spoon so I was seriously hoping the food would be AMAZING...

To start I ordered prawns which came in the shell but completely over cooked to the point of being bone dry.

My pasta was delicious and a generous portion but absolutely DROWNING in sauce to the point where it was just far too much. The pasta should carry the sauce, not swim in it.

The staff were pleasant enough but lacked a little in priority and favoured the larger groups of diners than my partner and I.

It was just a bit too touch and go. I don't think I will be returning.
