Reviewed August 30, 2012

We ate here as a group to celebrate my father's birthday. Service was friendly and fun - food was great and the prices seemed good too. Everyone enjoyed their meals, and we stayed a little late chatting - never were we pressured to leave (although we eventually did) well worth a look!!

“Canapes, Antipasti, Lobster Ravioli and Tiramisu! Great”
Reviewed June 11, 2012

Having just got back from Lake Como in Italy my partner and I were eager for some traditionally styled Italian food and having walked past this busy bistro once before we booked in and couldn't have been happier. We both had three courses plus complimentary canapes and a half bottle of red for only £59 between us, £65 with tip!

Great service, fresh foods, great atmosphere, great location, all as you would expect from a proper Italian. Many thanks

“Disappointing”
Reviewed June 11, 2012

Lovely little Italian restaurant tucked away down a side street in Ilkley. First
impressions are great, welcoming Italian owners, authentically decorated with original Italian products & produce. Good selection of Italian wines too. Other than that the food disappoints time after time. Portions are tiny, main meals are extremely salty, pasta sauces are nothing but passata heated up with very little care for the discerning Italian palate. The prices are very steep for the quantity of food ie tiny rosemary & oil pork chop for £12. We keep coming back to try other dishes as the ambiance is great but won't be returning after 5 attempts. If you are happy with a panini or lunchtime salad, it might be better.
