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...

“Superb!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2014

We took my mum here on the 11th January for her 60th birthday dinner and it was superb.
The waiters whisked my mums birthday cake out into the kitchen before she had a chance to see it and the service remained brilliant throughout - the waiters didn't even mind my step-dad trying some Italian swear words on them!
The food was delicious and despite being busy, was served quickly without us feeling rushed.
We will definitely be coming back here again!
Oh and my mum loved that they brought her cake out to her and they all sang happy birthday!

“Best Italian in Canterbury”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2014

Had two football club dinners here and twice just with my wife and everytime the food was great. As in most non-chain Italian restaurants, the Italian staff were so welcoming, friendly and helpful. The specials are excellent, though not cheap. If you want Italian food this is so much better than the standard chains, both the food and the ambience.
