“Average Eatery”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

We had been recommended this restaurant on the edge of Keswick.

It was the last day of the August Bank Holiday, and it wasn't busy We were greeted and seated promptly.

The menu looked good, including a couple of dishes one doesn't normally see in most Italians. The baked pasta Vincisgrassi is one of the Marche region's signature dishes, and we have only ever had it once before. It was excellent.

Unfortunately, the rest of the dishes were just about average, and the starter of king prawns (Gamberetti) looked unappetising, and proved tasteless.

The staff could not have been more helpful, and the owner/manager went out of his way to offer suggestions and combinations.

I'd give it another try though - might just have been an odd off day which happens tous all.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

we love Italian food and this feel short. Pizza was bland, lasagne pre cooked and everything over priced.
Give a wide berth
