This is a wonderful gem in Baldock; a quaint restaurant serving wonderful Italian food by restauranteurs that really care about your experience. I have had the opportunity to have many a great meal here but have not written a review until now. After casually flicking...More

We went with friends and had a great time. Food was excellent, felt like real Italian home cooking all prepared from scratch. Menu was extensive, check out the the chalk board. Wines are great too, all Italian from what I could see and reasonably priced....More

It was my birthday and my husband couldn't have chosen a better restaurant if he had tried. The service was second to none. Head of house Davina, made everything ideal. The food, prepared by Davina's husband, was superb and the atmosphere was second to none....More

Came back here for a second time and loved it! Food was delicious and cooked to perfection. Even the sides of vegetables were great when normally restaurants don't put too much effort into them. The steak was a really good cut of meat; I'd say...More

Family meal for 8 where we could talk and eat in an atmosphere which was very comfortable. The food was all served hot. The vegetables were all freshly cooked and tasty. Will definitely return. For that true Italian experience I would highly reccomend this restaurant

We have been a number of times over the years for special occasions and have enjoyed every meal. There isn't a vast choice for vegetarian diners, perhaps 3-4 starters or main courses but all of them are delicious. Homemade fish soup, lots of unusual fish...More
