“Poor service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2012

We booked on the 7th of June to celebrate our wedding anniversary having dined there previously and thoroughly enjoyed the experience and the food? On this occasion however the service was very poor. Despite booking no table was ready. A table was cleaned and offered. We were left to seat ourself and hang our wet coats on the back of the chair. We received no attention. We were not offered menus nor our drinks order taken. Eventually my wife got up and obtained two menus. When some one eventually came across we asked for a bottle of champainge. Unfortunately the restaurant didn't have any! We decided to leave and celebrated our anniversary at an other Italian restaurant St Moritz where we enjoyed a very good dining experience.

“Italiano Fantastico!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2012

This is in the High Buxton area and we don't often eat Italian as sometimes value for money is questionable, but this was a great find. The prices were extremely reasonable and food delightful. It was the service and friendliness of the staff that was a real selling point and the chef and all of the staff deserve your custom. Ordered the heaviest bottle of wine in the world and it was superb and cheap at less than £14 per bottle and that was mid range price! If you go to Buxton eat here.

“Time to put the record straight. This place is fine and good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2012

Ate here with my partner on Easter Sun evening.Bit nervous having seen odd review but all was fine. Staff girlies very friendly and attentive. Food good and on par with some more expensive places and Ive eaten in loads of Italians, here and in Italy. I had chicken toscana and my partner had a pork fillet with mushrooms. Chicken nice and soft and
served with reasonable medley of veg
Fine for English Italian restaurant.
To top it all you can take your own Barolo or whatever wine you chose for £2.50 corkage so that is also great cos wine prices in Italians are always OTT for some reason.
Based on our experience, decent food at fair price and would recommend.
