We arrived and was immediately seated in the conservatory which has a fantastic view of the seafront, our drinks order arrived quickly and the waiter explained what the specials were and took the order, once seated in the restaurant the food arrived quickly, it was extremely well presented and tasted amazing, our table had a mixture of Steak and Pasta, nobody was disappointed in any of our three courses, I would highly recommend their version of Tiramisu. It was lovely that Bruno (chef) came out to say hello and meet everyone, the staff were all friendly and knowledgable and we will definitely be going back.

This is how top restaurants should be. The service was exemplary with the owner and staff perfect hosts. The food was all excellent - tasty and beautifully presented. I cannot commend this restaurant highly enough and am looking forward to visiting again in the future.

Went well several time s on different occasions and this is where I invited people for a treat : I was enchanted each time .Elegant premisses, Father and son rule the show with great warmth as well as great sense of top service but the quality of the food on offer is equal to none
Fresh fishes locally sourced are certainly the top of their best dishes, and we were even proposed to have the sea bass bones removed
Italian veal dishes like saltimbocca à la romana are just marvelous ; The cooking is perfect just right even spaghetti à la vongole as a starter are as good as in Napoli . Desserts are a dream
Yes it is expensive but worth every pound: when you buy a Rolls Royce you do not complain about the price, you get what you pay for
If you want spaghetti or pizzas go to Pizza Express, it is good for the price, if you want fish and chips go to a pub but if you want a fantastic meal in a marvelous setting go to Il Giardino .if you go at night with the lighted lights on the promenade you can trick yourself that you are in Punta Rosa in San Felice Circeo, it is not only a meal it is a trip in Italy

Fantastic Italian restaurant with exceptional views over the Bristol channel. Then service is very Italian with the menu being brought to you on a blackboard and each dish is explained to you. Not cheap but worth it, with an excellent wine list.

for good food in fine surroundings, go to Il Giardino. A family run business that we have been frequenting for years because of the hospitality of Francisco and his family. If you go in the summer, you can walk off the exquisite food with a stroll along the prommenade.
