What a surprise to find such a nice Italian restaurant in the middle of Emsworth.
We arrived as a group of eight and hadn't pre booked. The restaurant was quite busy but they managed to move some tables around for us to fit us in as if it was no problem at all.
There was a great choice of food and the specials board had some excellent options. The waiter recommended different wines and what dishes he thought were nice. When the food arrived, I was completely shocked by the size of the portions.. The starters were easily main course size. So getting through a starter and a main was quite a struggle, although the food was delicious and we all did our best to eat as much as we could.
I ordered a main course of venison from the specials board. I was surprised when the venison arrived at the table with a slice of pate on the top of it and then a few minutes later, a puff pastry slice was placed on top by the waiter... It was a bit of an odd combination but still tasted nice.
The service was friendly although at times a little over the top. And the waiter admitted to not being Italian when he thanked us in French for our order..
Although we arrived quite late and were a large group, at no point were we rushed and the restaurant stayed open later to give us time to finish.
A great evening in a lovely restaurant... I'd definitely recommend it.
