In a week, we had to go here twice. Great bruschettes, fine pasta and pizza, and friendly! Yum and double-yum.

Authentic, homely, delicious-tasting food...if I had an Italian mama I am sure this is the kind of food she used to make. Wonderful service...and they deliver too...an unexpected slice of Italy in Hastings...a total gem.

My family visited for a simple coffee mid afternoon. A large space with memorabilia on the walls, photos of Italians, bits & pieces of crockery etc, & mis-matched chairs & tables, all offering a feel of hot barmy days if Italy. I don’t live here...More
