Certainly not your everyday Italian restaurant but an unforgettable dining experience, thanks to Maria's delightful eccentricity and Luciano's marvellous cooking. My Pizza Campioni was spot on and the Panna Cotta delicious. Contented noises were coming from the other side of the table, too. Great to see the scaffolding down at last.

Second time we have been to this restaurant and have enjoyed both visits the staff are always helpful and the I think new young waitress was charming and M arise as always slightly eccentric but always helpful and pleasant. We came this time as we had two young children with us so dined early. The restaurant is very child friendly as are the staff.

However just one thing for the owners to think about is having a baby changing facility there are plenty of options available. So I hope that when we go back they would of added this essential function for such a child friendly restaurant. One last thing the newly renovated facade is beautifully done and complements and adds to a great restaurant experience. So well done to all the staff. It goes without saying that the food quality is excellent. The mussels with a tomato sauce is a perfect balance of tastes with a subtle flavour that compliments the fresh seafood

Thanks for a lovely evening

At long last the scaffolding has come down from this lovely building and one can see how well the money has been spent. A group of five us ate there on Wednesday evening. Now the scaffolding is down the inside looks very good in all the extra light. The food was perfect with the highlight being the baked pork spare rib, it was so good I had to let everyone else have a taste. The other starters were also good. We had various main courses, all of them were fresh and arrived in a perfectly satisfactory time for freshly prepared food. The deserts were just right, tasty but not too big to eat after a large meal. We had a pre-starter of olives and garlic bread, followed by three courses with three bottles of wine and the total bill was a very reasonable £140. This is a super place, truly the best Italian restaurant in Ramsgate, probably Thanet and possibly the whole of East Kent. If you are Ramsgate don't miss it.

Let's get the bonkers bit out of the way.... the shrine to Princess Diana memorabilia on the wall, LOTS of plastic flowers/greenery, the waitress' personal style (very rarely comment on that sort of thing, but really... has to be seen to be believed)

Lovely... I had the Insalata Maria, which had some of the nicest buffalo mozzarella I have been served in this country, then a perfect spag bol. Really perfect. I was too full for pudding. Hubby had smoked salmon to start, there was LOTS of it, and then an excellent pizza.

Why not 5 stars... the tiramisu at the end was not as good as the rest of the food, particularly because it was garnished with whipped cream from a can. Meh.

A fantastic evening with the wife & kids! Have eaten here before and the restaurant never fails to impress! We were very well looked after as always with great home made Italian food. I recommend this place to anyone who enjoys homemade pasta without the frills at very reasonable prices.
