The food was good and the specials even better. I wouldn't say the food has authentic taste but it's still good. The boutique style adds to the fun.

A cosmopolitan haven for a Saturday breakfast in convivial surroundings after a long week. The breakfast menu was great and a fantastically fresh cheese omelette and delicious coffee was just the job while catching up on emails. There was even a dog friendly area so I'll be back with our golden retriever next time. The lunch looked good as did... More

Where do I start? After a warm and friendly greeting as you walk through the door to be seated in a bustling restaurant. With excellent choice of drinks we elected for some bread to nibble on whilst we decide on our food. The menu caters to all with great selection of pasta, meat and fish. We opted for scallops with...

I visit this restaurant whenever I am in Harrogate working. The staff and owners are lovely and nothing is too much trouble probably why they are always busy!! Great food offers on wed/thurs nights and authentic italian food freshly cooked!! Great value but remember to book!!

My daughter celebrated her 21st at the Italian Connection. Adele provided a restaurant geared just to my daughter's needs - the wine,service and food was excellent. There was a really good choice of food presented on time, tasty and individual. We organised our own cake and this was no problem. It was just fantastic

We recently had a our daughter's 21st birthday party here for 28 guests. Nothing was too much trouble for the lovely owners and we had a fab evening. The food was delicious and all out on time for all the guests. Make sure you pay a visit and support the independents!

Great atmosphere and host. The husband and wife team go the extra mile to provide quality. Personally I think that their specials board is the best way to order as they seem to be really great plates where other restaurants specials are just alternatives to their main menu.

Can only concur with the last review of this place. Steaks were poor, fillet was just about edible, sirloin like old boots and complete non-starter. Neither cooked as requested. Insufficient staff for a Saturday night. Probably won't bother again.

Read the reviews for this restaurant which appeared to be good and thought we would give it a try. The place seems to be going for shabby chic but actually looks shabby and grubby. When you walk in it looks like an old cupboard that needs tidying and unfortunately they prepare cold food in these surroundings. My husband was horrified... More

We ate here on a Thursday evening and the restaurant was very busy, I think because of the excellent Thursday Special deal on offer (They have special deals on most midweek evenings) Check opening times as they are not open every day. The restaurant is family run and the owner is vert helpful and keen to provide good service. I... More
