If we lived nearer, we'd be here every week. As it is, when we travel from London, we never miss the chance to call in. Never. This week was the perfect opportunity - Valentine's night followed by a lunch for my mother's 90th birthday. The...More

Best Italian food I've had its amazing, friendly staff and the welcome when you walk in is second to none. Certainly would come back next time I'm in Cardiff. Thank you for the great food and your hospitality. Excellent.

I could eat here every week. The dishes might seem simple but the favours are sublime, the welcome and service are second to none.

Superb authentic Italian restaurant. Excellent menu with daily specials. The flavours are great - very good ingredients. Beef carpaccio starter and red snapper on risotto especially worth noting.

This is without doubt my favourite restaurant in Cardiff, in fact- probably in my top 3 favourite restaurants of all time, anywhere on the planet. I live in London, and have done the likes of Nobu, Barrafina, the Ledbury etc.... and also some damn good...More
