We visited for a quiet Tuesday night meal. A nice touch was the free appetiser. We started with the garlic mushrooms and the gamberoni. We both had pasta as a main course. The pasta Mamma Mia and Siciliana were very good. There was also a free digestif. We will certainly be going back again.

Just returned from a having a lovely meal here. We went with our 7yo daughter at the last minute, as it was late and we saw it as we were driving past. Great food and great service, couldn't fault it, would definitely return when we are up this way again.

Have been a number of times now, always with friends. Staff are always friendly and the menu what you would expect but with some nice specials and good value. Recommended.

Went out with friends on Saturday, we started at the Italian kitchen further along the road that we were so disappointed with, we ended up booking here last minute - we were not disappointed. Service, food, cost and ambience were all 100% A small place but definitely a great restaurant. Will make this our first choice in the future.

We have been eating here on a regular basis for a while now. We have taken friends as well as just going as a couple. It is positioned above the Jolly sailor pub so beware there are stairs to climb. There are seats as you enter along with a bar and a room at the back as well. Paula has... More

Been quite a few times now and tried a variety of meals are all very good. Nice service with good touches such as complimentary bruchetta and aperitif. Recommend the rib-eye steak which often appears on the specials menu.

Went last Thursday with my partner and been utterly impressed from the specials we had from the black board which reminded us of the great food we had in our many trips to Italy. The service was also remarkable, the staff very attentive and friendly making us feel at home in a relaxed atmosphere. Absolutely spot on, highly recommended.

My husband booked a table for 8pm 23 December 2016 for my 65th birthday. He made the booking well in advance to be sure of a table. We arrived just on 8 o'clock on a cold very blustery evening so we're looking forward to getting our coats off, sitting at our table and ordering our meal in comfort. We booked... More
