Quite simply the best food we’ve had since arriving in the Lakes. We were attracted by the lunchtime special £8.50 for soup of the day and any main (pizza/pasta) on the menu. It would be fair to say it exceeded our expectations the tomato and basil soup was served with bread and genuinely excellent. Followed by carnivore pizza which again was excellent with really high quality ingredients Italian meats, spicy sausage, fresh chilli etc. I would have been thrilled with this quality of food doran evening out never mind lunch. Staff were very pleasant and the restaurant though small was immaculate. I strongly recommend you give it a try.

We had a lovely meal here. Although it was very busy, the staff were attentive and the service was excellent. We felt it was a little pricey but would return again for a special occasion.

We had two excellent meals here, the food was very good and the service excellent.

We first visited with family with young children for the early bird deal (saves you a couple of pound per meal), all the dishes were at a high standard and they were helpful in bring out a child's early to keep her quite. A couple of us had desert which was very nice and we all enjoyed our meals. A couple of downside points on this visit was we waited about 45 minutes for our pasta mains to arrive, which seemed a long time when 5 dishes were the same, one carbonara, one sea bass dish (which only got 1 fillet for around £15).

We revisited a couple of nights later and again had great meals and the service very good, for the price you really can't beat it in Ambleside and we would return. I had read some of the reviews before hand and was put off, good job my family hadn't and we visited.
