I eat here fairly regulary and always enjoy the food, its a friendly little place with good service and no pretentions.

“Good Family Run Italian Resturant”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

My first visit to this restaurant. Little outside central area but the food was good, and portions are little on the large side. Helpful staff and chef. Great little local restaurant, would I go there again, perhaps.

“Very average italian”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

I hadn't been to this restaurant for a couple of years and was invited by a group of friends to celebrate their birthdays. Friendly and helpful staff greeted us. Not a lot of room to sit down whilst waiting for our party but we were soon seated at our table. You can now take your own wine and they don't charge corkage. We all had the £10.90 starter/sweet and a main pasta or pizza. The portions are not large. But I enjoyed the spinach and blue cheese fritters. My calzone was rather flat and quite doughy. Not a lot of atmosphere in quite a cold room. And not sure if I would go back as it was very average.

“It must have been an off night”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

All the reviews are good and i was recommended to go by someone who i expected to know. So why was my food so average? Are the present reviews more to do with cost and portion size? It wasn't bad but it was no better and possibly a bit worse than any other Italian restaurant in Sheffield. In the light of the other very positive reviews i'll try it again but if you want a pleasant, well prized, well cooked Italian meal in Sheffield go to La Terrazza on Sharrow Vale Road.
