Location and contact

BOOKING IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED. We are closed from 1st-14th August, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, Easter Sunday & from 1st-14th January. Situated just a few steps away from the Roman Baths, our attractive and atmospheric restaurant is located in a charming candle lit historical cellar of natural Bath stone with vaulted ceilings throughout, and resembles the cavernous cellars of an Italian grotto.The main characteristic of our cuisine is its simplicity. We rely on the quality of our ingredients rather than on elaborate preparation.We also like to offer traditional Italian dishes with a contemporary twist because we strongly believe in those 'Sapori' (flavours).With our finest ingredients coming

We have always had great service and the food is delicious. Hard to get a booking for obvious reasons so do book ahead.

Excellent top quality restaurant. If you like big plate cafes it's not for you. impressive food. I have a big appetite so wasn't quite full. That's pretty much standard in most expensive restaurants though. All pasta dishes are excellent. Bruschetta starters are excellent. Fish dishes...More

Looks nothing special from the street but really is a stunning place once you go down the steps and into the cellar. Good food, not bad price worth a visit.

Dear Rosemary, I would recommend you to phone them to confirm the validity as they might have restricted date when the voucher could be applied. It is also recommended to book a table in advance!
