Visited SI on Monday lunch time, to find it very busy, waited to be seated, given standard menus, with no mention of lunch time deals from surly staff, when we inquired after them half the choices were not available also noted the price had increased from our last recent visit (perhaps due to the influx of summer visitors) we settled for the bolognaise and carbonara , these had to be the smallest meals ever to have been served - also quite tasteless , couple that with 2 cokes at £3 each and we left feeling totally ripped off !!!!!SIMPLY ITALIAN -SIMPLY A RIP OFF !!!

Food was ok but nothing more than you'd find in any average High Street Italian restaurant but, more expensive! Busy but only because there was nowhere else much to go. The staff were busy and appeared disinterested. The best thing was a reasonable ice cream! Wouldn't bother going back.

Beautifully situated in sovereign harbour, Simply Italian is certainly a wonderful dining experience. The service is great, in keeping with the atmosphere, the waiter spoke italian and provided everything you'd expect. The food is good, however it doesn't seem to keep up with the other factors of the resturant. Overall a great place I'd certainly visit again.

Decor: rustic charm with modern elegance blended skilfully. Service: superb ~ just the right balance between leaving you to enjoy your food and coming forward to help. Food: I had the special ~ "Salmon in a fish stew" easily in my top 10 best fish dishes and arguably THE BEST! This was our first visit but it will most certainly not be our last.
