We stumbled across this restaurant as we don't know Blackpool very well. After searching on the internet for nice restaurants, none seemed to appear, this should have been top of the list! The service was impeccable, the atmosphere was very warm and cosy. My husband and I enjoyed a fantastic 3 course meal here, there was no sign of frozen ping food here, home cooked authentic Italian dishes. The food was out very quickly, the staff were very friendly and the price was great. Definitely worth a visit!

Whilst staying in blackpool for weekend our hotelier recommended this italian restaurant. It was excellent. The ambience was perfect had to wait short while to b seated but well worth the wait. The staff were very helpful and pleasant. The food was very tasty. Bout average prices for good quality italian restaurant would definitely go again. Highly recommend.

We visit here every time we're in Blackpool. It has always been a lovely experience. The staff are friendly and attentive and go out of their way to be helpful. They even managed to find one of our party Irish Whiskey, which was much appreciated. The food is excellent and very good value, the early-bird is our usual sitting. They're very accommodating for families although all diners are made welcome. Go here if you're in Blackpool!

Double birthday celebration. Where to start! We were greeted, shown menus and seated. The waitress was jolly and pleasant enough although extremely touchy feely, not to all, just the male of our couples party closest to her age!!! Our conversation was interrupted several times by plates flying across our faces while chatting. Empty glasses left to accumulate. Pizzas over cooked. A steak dish, unable to cut through even with the steak knife, it was actually smeared with mustard, rather like a hot dog, seriously not good at all.A second dish provided plus a drink to humour the disgruntled eater. Unfortunately, this person then had to eat alone as the party had finished. Free shots were given, except for the coke drinker who wasn't even acknowledged. All in all, if I was invited again, I most certainly would try to talk them out of going.

We decided to try this restaurant for the first time after reading good reviews and seeing that it serves an early bird menu. It was great to see a very busy restaurant at 6:30 in the evening with pleasant staff and good service. We enjoyed our choices and the portions were good for an early bird menu. Because the service was good we even had time for a sweet before going to the theatre. We will return to sample the full menu.
