“Don't bother tipping...”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2013

... because it doesn't go to the waiting staff! Apart from that, lovely food with lovely service! The food is slightly over priced but all cooked with authentic Italian ingredients. The waiting time can be rather long (over 30 mins for a starter!). Situated in a lovely town with much better restaurants!

“Wonderfully authentic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2013

Wonderfully authentic Italian experience. Great service, there's no menu, the waiter talks you through each individual dish, and the food is really good. The small size gives the restaurant a friendly and vibrant atmosphere. Highly recommended, will certainly be back.

“Very good food at a very good price.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

Have visited here for lunch a couple of times. Quirky and authentic Italian restaurant/cafe. Friendly service and a simple menu selection supplemented with a specials board.

The price is very good. Less than £6 for a main course, complementary olives/grilled bread. I've paid twice as much for lesser quality elsewhere.
