Had dinner here with the family whilst visiting Cambridge for a few days. Good food with a focus on ‘traditional dishes’. Pizzas were really good. Overall it was great value for money. The restaurant was full even on a Tuesday evening, which is always a...good sign.More

Tasty pizzas, served very hot. Friendly service & nice surroundings. Imaginative wine list - delighted to find an organic Zibibbo for under £20! Very reasonably priced for centre of Cambridge. Highly recommend and will return next time we pass through Cambridge.

We shared a antipasti Classico, enjoyed a 1/2 portion pasta course and had delicious mains. The staff gave us all the time in the world to enjoy food and wine. Finishing with vin Santo and espresso…great meal! Excellent service! Best of times!

Came here as a couple for a date night. We were welcomed warmly despite not booking in advance. The downstairs was full but there is more space upstairs and it was quieter, which we quite liked. My husband also loved the background music which complimented...the setting well! The staff were very lovely and smiling, and service was prompt yet we didn’t feel rushed. We both had pizzas that arrived in good time and were cooked perfectly! Generous toppings and no burnt bits. We got some olives too and they were huge! Overall we had a wonderful evening and would definitely come here again.More

This is a genuine family run, and owned, Italian restaurant in Cambridge. The staff are friendly and efficient, without being servile or complacent. ( They have had a business here, for many years now! ) The food is superb and given the quality, well priced....It is excellently placed, not far from the River, so if you plan a punt trip, you should definitely include this in your itinerary. It's also not far from the 'must see' trilogy of colleges, St Johns, Trinity and Kings.More

Good Italian restaurant, with a reasonably wide choice of dishes situated in a very busy street but very close to the river cam and the punting bases. Food was well cooked and served reasonably fast but it was a quiet Monday night. Service was pleasant...but I think the place is quite small so they seek a quick turnover. I would go again if in the neighbourhoodMore

We booked for our two families of 2 adults and 2 children. We sat upstairs, where it was roomy and quieter, while still very much feeling a part of the restaurant. Sometimes you can feel out of the way when seated upstairs? The service was...excellent and we were quickly served our drinks. The menu was great, a mixture of pizza, pasta and other mains eg pork. I have rarely seen potato on a pizza in England (which I love from a pizzeria in Barcelona) and they had it here! I had it added to my veggie pizza and it was delicious! We all loved our meals. The price was very reasonable too. We would definitely recommend this wonderful restaurant and, when our son starts Uni here this year, we will certainly be back! Thank you.More
