“lovely”
Reviewed December 6, 2013

I ordered a carbonara which was absolutely lovely the egg sauce was amazing and i wish i could make it like that myself. The pizza was okay but nothing amazing still it was well cooked with a little bit TOO much cheese.

The desert was nice the apple crumble was alright but the coffee pudding with ice cream was heavenly though.

“Top draw food, cracking atmosphere”
Reviewed December 5, 2013

Ate here a couple of weeks ago. Really reaaly good food matched by the service and atmosphere. The owner was really friendly, giving advice on wine and even telling us the receipe for the dish we had which was great. Even treated us to a glass of the wine he was having with his own meal ! Will be back

“Authentic Italian - fantastic food”
Reviewed December 4, 2013

Fantastic food served up in a great atmosphere by caring and attentive owner and staff - a real gem. The menu choice is excellent, backed up by a specials board and caters for all tastes, I cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough

“Fantastic place to eat”
Reviewed December 3, 2013 via mobile

The owners and the staff make you so welcome. The food is good and it's a great place for an evening out with friends. Whether you just have a pizza or a full meal with wine you are just as welcome and the service is good. Our favourite place when we are in the Lake District. Prices are sensible. Sitting downstairs is preferable with the ambience created by the buzz about the place although the service is just as good upstairs. In all, excellent family run restaurant. Thank you.

“Lovely Place”
Reviewed December 3, 2013

Decided to go here on a Saturday evening. We hadn't booked, but the manager got us a table but said we had to be done by 8:30. Fair enough. That gave us 2 hours which was fine.
Service was efficient and friendly, the place has a lot of atmosphere (it was packed), it was clean although maybe a touch cramped. Perhaps 'cosy' would be a better description.
Anyway, we had garlic bread with cheese to start. I was expecting a couple of doorstep slices but am delighted to say we got lovely thin bread, the size of a pizza and it was delicious.
Mains were seafood linguini (really seafood-y), spaghetti carbonara (delicious) and chicken and mushroom tagliatelle (also fantastic).
Good varied choice of dishes on the menu plus a specials board.
I give it 4 stars because we didn't have dessert, but if they are as good as everything else, it will most certainly be a 5.
Overall highly recommended.
