Recently visited for some dinner with my mum and was surprised by how busy it was on a Wednesday night, food choices were good with an extensive menu and the wine was reasonably priced for some decent wine to accompany the food.

We started with a Caprese salad which was ok and a Focaccia that was very nice and a large portion. We then both had pasta, my mum the Seafood with the Tomato sauce (even though she asked for the white wine but was nice enough that happy to have this) and i had the Paesana with Sausage, Spinach and peppers which was good as well.

The service was good and attentive enough, atmosphere was decent with a busy cafe feel to it and I would think next time i am back in the area i would be happy to go back.

The prices were reasonable, portions were of a decent size and is a good option when compared with the other Italians similar to this in Hamilton.

the layout of surroundings was very nice and staff friendly but was disappointed in the food, when our order was taken we had to wait 30 mins for our starter and then for our main course a further 20 after that, to many staff and not knowing what they were doing, wine was expensive and beer at £4.60 a pint day light robbery.

Thank you for your review, we are sorry you had such a wait for your starters and main course. We are unaware of the time you came to the restaurant, but have we do have enough staff to cover for full capacity as our tables have been full most lunches and evenings at certain times. We are sorry if you found our staff not knowing what they were doing, but we have invested a lot of time into training and from other reviews, this has paid off. Our wine is competitive compared to other surrounding restaurants in Hamilton. The draught beer is Birra Moretti which is a premium Italian Lager but we also sell cheaper bottled alternatives too so there is something for everyone. We do hope this helps and apologise again for your delay.

I have been here twice now, once on a Sunday late afternoon and once on a Thursday evening.
The food was lovely, calamari to start and on both occasions I had the steak pasta which was amazing!! Waiters are very attentive and friendly!
The only thing is its really quite noisy, I think because its quite an open space with high ceilings and no soft furnishing such as curtains, so the noise really carries. Its wasn't as if people were shouting or anything like that, but as soon as we walked in on the Sunday we thought it was really noisy so we ate quick and left.
When I went back on the Thursday night, it wasn't as busy and so there wasn't the same issue, thank goodness.
I would go back but not at a weekend or special occasion such as Mothers Day when you know its going to be busy. Quiet Monday Tuesday or Wednesday night would be better.
