Description: An authentic Italian restaurant housed in an historic building just a short walk from the high street in Canterbury. All the dishes are prepared from scratch each day using the best Italian and locally sourced ingredients and lots and lots of passione!! Come and enjoy our freshly made bread and pasta, our traditional Neapolitan pizza, fresh meat and seafood dishes, not forgetting our mouthwatering home-made desserts. Whatever the occasion, you can be sure of great service in a relaxed atmosphere where you are free to savour the flavours and aromas of the Italian kitchen. We look forward to sharing them with you...

Think it was very pricey £6 for two prawns, two slices of Parma ham, a little bit of rocket lettuce and a few shavings of cheese.

There is a oil taste/viscosity on the pasta you only get in Southern Italian places like this. We had sea food options and the 'fish dish' was not cheap but portions were generous, The bread was authentic, the bellini was half the price of Michael Caines poorer version and the overall experience beat Michael Caines hands down. The pizza was good too. Mind you, despite other comments the Tiramisu was average to poor despite the large portion. The service was Italian too. I would happily eat here frequently and work my way through the menu. How do the chains survive in a town with two good Italians?

The food was great, and the waiters friendly and helpful. They coped well with a loud, noisy group of ladies and stayed open for as long as we wanted to be there (till about 11.30)

The service was timely, friendly and professional. The food was very good quality and delicious. The place was packed so clearly popular and there was a very busy and friendly atmosphere. Would definitely go back.
