None of us had ever visited this restaurant, despite living locally but had heard good reports. We were not disappointed.

Really excellent food and great service too - we had muscles for starter and squid too then main course fish and chicken with vegetables and sauté potatoes. Truly wonderful tasty food and Pinot Grigio to wash it down. Thoroughly recommended and can't wait to go again

I am a vegetarian and my favourite Italian dish is carbonara which usually comes with meat at La Scala but every time I have been they have been more than happy to make me a separate dish... More

My husband and I were recommended this lovely Italian Restaurant by the Landlady at our Guest house, Easton Court, she said her and her husband have never been disappointed with the food or service here, and we can quite understand why ! We were offered complimentary delicious home baked ciabatta bread and butter to nibble on whilst making our choices.... More
