“Delicious food, great staff, wonderful atmosphere!”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

We've been going to this little restaurant for the last five years, usually to celebrate and to have a really really good meal in an unpretentious but gorgeous surroundings. The food is consistently good to great, a good varied menu and the desserts are to die for! We had their pistachio creme brulee which was divine and their tiramisu was delish! It always feel so romantic and elegant in there, maybe a touch old fashioned compared to all the chain restaurants and pubs trying to be gastro around, but its original and classy. The crab pasta is my favourite and their wine list is fab! Had a Sicilian white wine which blew us away - perfect price wise and for a mixed grape bottle, it was superb!
They do a discounted lunch menu so if you want to wet your appetite, go and try it and then go back for a romantic meal.

“Best Italian outside of Italy”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

This beautiful restaurant is well worth going to, great food lovely service, bargain dishes cooked as you desire, some parking available but just a min away from a multi storey car park. I go at least once a month and if you have something special to celebrate then this is the place to go to. well done Michael ( owner)

“underated Italian gem”
Reviewed December 17, 2012

I've been to this restaurant 6 times in the last 7 years and never been disappointed. Service is always professional and the food excellent. On my last trip had a perfect pasta just like in Italy, t bone steak and then a festive pannatone accompanied by excellent Barolo. This restaurant is definitely the best Italian in Maidenhead if not the best restaurant in the town centre. The two course lunch deal is really fantastic value with interesting choices. So not sure why the restaurant is not busier. I' ll be going back.
