“Reasonable price and quality”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

Was very surprised how nice and reasonably priced restaurant was, after visiting the RADA theatre. Food was very tasty, service friendly and efficient.

“Mondello was closed”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

Usually go to Mondello but it was closed. This was therefore second choice. Pleasant staff could not make up for the tasteless seafood starter which was in fact the day's special. My fettuccine salmone was much better however. My colleague thought the seafood starter was ok, so maybe it's me. But I felt for what we had it was expensive and lacked overall flavour. And the Italian people submitting reviews seem to bear this out!

There are much better restaurants in the vicinity. The fact we were they only people there from 7.45 till 9.45 seems to support this!

“Mixed reviews for this Italian Gem”
Reviewed September 21, 2013 via mobile

Ive seen the reviews, always amazed how differently we see things ..The food here is basic but good , John the owner is abrupt but that is part of his charm .We always receive a warm welcome and have not had the experiences of the other writers. Prices are fair , in the summer sit outside with a glass of barola and watch the world go by .

“rude owner”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

I loved the authentic friendly laid back vibe of this restaurant, so asked to reserve an outside table for a bit later. The owner agreed, but when we got there the table had not been reserved and the owner just shrugged and said no problem as there was seating inside. Apparently it is not policy to save particular tables, but then he should have been upfront about this when we made the reservation.
Food was fine - reasonably priced and tasty, but my starter had still not arrived when everyone else had finished theirs and plates were being cleared away. So I cancelled it rather than make everyone else wait for their main course.
The owner was very eccentric and brusque. he seemed to be shouting at his staff sometimes and I found this off-putting and won't be visiting again.

“Great little Italian”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

I reserved a table in the little outdoor area on a sunny weekday lunchtime. The service was quick and friendly (and the owner hilarious!) and the food was delicious; the pasta was perfectly cooked and very tasty. Would definitely recommend!
