We dined here one evening and in addition to the really lovely food the service was first class, as the ‘brummie’ manager really has his finger on the pulse and watches everything constantly and directs the waiting staff accordingly. A great place to eat good...More

The food is good, the atmosphere is good, the service is good, and the place is just all-over good. On my last trip to SD, we ate there for business, and on other occasions with friends, either way it's a good choice

Only went in for happy hour but really enjoyed the negronis, calamaries and prawns with beans. Will certainly return to try the pizzas, they looked great

The food was good and somewhat reasonable for portions received. The cocktails were a little pricey and didn’t taste that good for price. The service was quick for amount of people there. Took a little bit to check out.

A great Italian place in Little Italy, on India street. They have an outdoor section which I recommend. Beer on tap is reasonable at $6 and the food is delicious. Had the Tortolini w/ Mushroom sauce, umm! Would return!

Not happy with this restaurant at all. Our waiter was plain rude to us. There were five of us dining and one girls meal was served 20mins before the rest. When I asked for an explanation he tried to fob me off then gave out...More
