An authentic Italian restaurant housed in an historic building just a short walk from the high street in Canterbury. All the dishes are prepared from scratch each day using the best Italian and locally sourced ingredients and lots and lots of passione!! Come and enjoy our freshly made bread and pasta, our traditional Neapolitan pizza, fresh meat and seafood dishes, not forgetting our mouthwatering home-made desserts. Whatever the occasion, you can be sure of great service in a relaxed atmosphere where you are free to savour the flavours and aromas of the Italian kitchen. We look forward to sharing them with you...

Small improvement would be seasoning for seafood pasta as quite bland.
I visited this restaurant with my parents and partner having read some of the brilliant reviews on Tripadvisor.
We were welcomed as we came through the door by a lady I assume was the owner managing front of house.
The welcome she gave was very...More

Thank you for your comments about the food. Our service charge is optional and this is stated both on the menu and on the bill. Regarding the service, we feel it is unnecessary to be so personal about one individual and would rather you would...More
