Second visit to this fantastic restaurant. Staff are always cheerful and helpful. The food is out of this world-. The home made deserts are to die for. Again the ice cream my husband had was perfect and my panna cotta was the best in the world. Will definitely be going back again soon. Well done everyone and a big thank you.

I had visited the restaurant before - its the closest one to us. Previous experiences were mixed. However it professes to be authentic Italian and the owner is, I believe Italian.
Tested the Pizza's! Excellent, the best we have tasted outside of Italy - so that is a compliment.
They also make their own bread which they sell - very good. You can go just for a drink too, but once you smell the food.....!

Traveled around the world and this is by far the best I have eaten in. Have been going to Norfolk for 42 years and first time at this restaurant Rafi so happy in his work can hear him singing in the kitchen. His wife and staff were fantastic never been so happy to be eating in such a friendly atmosphere. Food was excellent, Home made ice cream and the best pannacota I have ever tasted and was even given the recipe. Wow great.

The most welcoming , relaxed family restaurant with very high standards of service and exquisite freshly cooked food. Gail is the perfect host and Rafe consistently cooks amazing dish after dish in the kitchen. If you love Italy and particularly southern Italy you will love the food served here. The pigeon salad is divine and the Crab linguine is so intense in flavour and yet so fresh in its preparation. Perfect!
Always our favourite place to eat...... Whether it be with our children as Gail and Rafe embrace family dining and our kids just love to eat here , with family or friends for a celebration or just the two of us!
