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...

“Great local restaurant with a family feel !”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

Great meal on a recent business trip following a recommendation from a colleague - certainly brightened up my Tuesday Evening - Good selection of Seafood - went for the Scallops to start followed by a really tasty Rib Eye on the mains - washed down with a well selected bottle of wine. Owners are a charitable bunch too - aparently they are doing a Charity drive down to Rome. Well worth a visit !

“A taste of Italy”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

Lasagne with a tomato sauce so rich and vibrant - my husband had a half lobster which was a bit of a struggle! The coffee ice cream is delicious and we were given a free lemon liqueur afterwards. It feels like a proper Italian trattoria, full of bustle and life. A bit off the centre of town, but well worth searching out

“How did it take me a decade to find?”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

Not sure how this place took me a decade on Canterbury to find. It looked a bit grotty from outside and I never went in, but much nicer inside and the food was excellent, highly recommended.

“A great find away from the busy High Street.”
Reviewed August 19, 2013 via mobile

We came across this place walking from a car park into town so opted to have dinner there. This is a family enterprise built up over many years and they make you feel at home. The food was very good and authentic italian but the desserts let them down, my friend makes much better tiramsou! That is a minor point, I fully recommend this resto.
