“Saturday evening group meal”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

Excellent restaurant, we were given a warm welcome. The food was delicious and the service exceptional. We were all introduced to Sardinian food by the enthusiastic and helpful staff.
Highly recommended.

“Fantastic Sardinian Food”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

Finally a real taste of home!! Away from the usual chains or 1970's Italian Restaurants that populate the UK. The food was fantastic, the atmosphere was excellent and we all had a great time. Many thanks to Marco (the owner), Fabio (head waiter) and all of the staff for looking after us. We will definitely return.

“Great atmosphere - good food”
Reviewed 28 May 2014 via mobile

Friday night after work - went to the restaurant for a pre concert meal and was pleasantly surprised at how busy and light the restaurant was. Food was traditional Italian fare. Good for groups of 4 or 6. Attentive staff. Handy location.

“A taste of Sardinia”
Reviewed 25 May 2014

We have eaten here several times over the last couple of months and have never been disappointed. The food is delicious and the staff really friendly and welcoming. The restaurant offers the regular Italian dishes but it is well worth trying the Sardinian specials. After the usual chains it is refreshing to find an independent gem like this. This is now one of our favourite restaurants in our home town.

“BRILLIANT”
Reviewed 23 May 2014

Great welcome; cheerful, friendly and smiling staff. Brilliant food – the best Italian food outside Italy – well, Sardinia, anyway. We went two nights running to see if the first was a one-off. Not at all. Lovely atmosphere.

Only complaint – it seems impossible to speak to anyone to book a table, and it’s obvious that you really do need to book. I am always chary of places that ask you to leave a number and “promise” to ring you back… I tried twice booking from abroad - as I was travelling - and only got the answerphone both times. If they could sort this out – they would be completely
unbeatable.
