My boyfriend booked a table here for our anniversary purely from the reviews on this site. We were met at the door by the head waiter/owner (i think?) who asked if we could come back as the table was not ready. I could see behind him that there were plenty of tables free but he explained there was a large table due in for a birthday and we would have to come back later for ours. Both my boyfreind and i have worked in restaurants before and do sympathise as often tables will take longer than you have allocated for them. However - since we were there and the table of 25 were not i really feel they should have seated us, then freed up further tables as they came available for the larger table. They have a real problem as it's only a small place which leads to great atmosphere but something akin to complete chaos in the table allocation system. There's no bar/waiting area so if your table's not ready they have to ask you to come back later - we witnessed other couples who were also sent away in a similar fashion.
So - we duly returned 15 mins later, when our table was still not free. After waiting a further 20 mins or so in a cloakroom area at the back of the restaurant, with another couple and a family of 4 in the end, we were finally seated.
Once we were seated our experience was much better. The atmosphere is lovely - much helped by an excellent but not intrusive saxophonist. The food was good - not the best italian food i've ever had but a good standard yes. It was a special night so we would have paid more for outstanding food. Staff were suitably attentive and happy to pour your water, recharge candles etc - nice touches.
All in all we had an enjoyable meal and made a point of not letting the wait ruin our night. However, due to the disappointment at not getting a table in reasonable time even after having booked i'm not sure i would recommend this to a freind - unless they were very patient and not in any kind of rush at all!

Mick and Cath Leeds:- In Blackpool for a couple of days looked up restaurants on the internet, Tiramisu was recommended. From the moment we walked in to the moment we left the service was excellent and the food complemented the service. Very reasonable wine and food pricing.Menu varied, tasty and some new combinations, an all round good night out. Will definately go again when we're in the area

Arrived late in the evening on a Friday night and was welcomed in. Even though it was at the end of their service we were not treated any differently. The service was great and the food was wonderfull. Even though we only had a couple of pizzas, they were freshly made and lovely fresh ingredientsn - what a lovely change to some places. We both had hugs and kisses on leaving and this was our first trip to Blackpool let alone the restaurant. Go and try for yourself - you will not be disappointed.
