My husband and I have been there on three occasions recently as we arrived late on the island and could not get into Pino's. Each time we have tried a different pizza and have been more than happy with our new choices. Sure the pizza base is a bit thin, but that is a traditional way of serving pizzas in Italy. But the variety of toppings, if you are willing to try something a little different, are really interesting and yummy. Each time we have been there we have not had to wait to be seated. The service was prompt, very little time waiting to eat and their house red (bottle) is reasonably priced. Given their weekly specials we will be back and try some of the other dishes. Very different to Pino's but both are worth a visit.

We ate here before going to the Penguin Parade. Pleased to find there were great deals on pasta and pizza on Tuesdays. Food and service both great.

Thank Eliz70

We arrived late - approx. 9pm after we had been to the penguin parade. We were greeted welcomingly and advised there might be a delay with meals due to a function upstairs. It was worth the short wait (30 mins) - we ordered pizza and gnocchi pasta - both were excellent. I definitely recommend this restaurant and would go back again.

We dined with friends recently at the Fat Seagull in Cowes and were pleasantly surprised at the variety of food on the menu, Thai/Curries, Pasta, Pizzas and Steaks etc. Although I didn't think my Thai meal was as good as the Thai restaurant around the corner it was tasty. Our friends had Risotto and a variety of Pizzas which they thoroughly enjoyed. The restaurant is licensed but wine prices are not over the top. The staff is friendly, knowledgable and provides good service.
