We visited this restaurant twice within a week. The staff are so nice, polite and extremely helpful. And the food is fabulous. Piping hot, full of flavour and just perfect. If I lived in Ilfracombe this would definitely be my regular place to eat.

This restaurant is a true gem, if you're looking for authentic Italian food. Cooked by Italians, served by Italians. The service was excellent as was the quality of the food, If it had been open on Monday night we would have eaten there again

Definitely have to book ahead and the reception is organised and Covid compliant. Plenty of parking nearby that was free after 6pm. Very friendly staff and there is a good range of food on the menu. Enjoyed our meals and would revisit.
