We had a very enjoyable meal in this restaurant. My husband had the beef bourguignon which he said was delicious. I had the sea bass in a prawn and vermouth sauce also delicious. The service was faultless; the maitre d' was polite and attentive and our Spanish waiter was excellent.

As an aside, they have an amazing sound system and we very much enjoyed the 'soft' jazz which was being played. In fact we delayed leaving and had extra drinks so we could continue to listen to the music and soak up the atmosphere. Will definitely return.

Dropped in on the off chance as we had left two daughters at a concert in the BIC. First impressions were very good, but for the chap leaning on the door frame having a fag outside the front entrance!
As we were in no hurry, we selected three courses and were very pleased with them all, tasty, good sized portions and well presented. The sharing platter starter was particularly good, and although I was driving, I was told that the wine was first rate, although We felt it was a bit top end on the price. Atmosphere is excellent. Service by one waiter was first class, I suspect the other guy was just a bit preoccupied!! Overall really enjoyed and will return, as the atmosphere and food selection won me over.

My girlfriend and I had the salmon and asparagus to start, cooked perfect and full of flavour..for our main we had sea bass and broad bean risotto which was excellent and I had Frutti di mare which was the best I have ever had..for desert we had limoncello baked cheesecake and tiramisu. We have been to lots of restaurants and this is the best Italian so far food was faultless, staff very friendly and polite and the atmosphere was vibrant! A must if you are in Bournmouth and want a treat

Have enjoyed several meals here. One of which was my 30th birthday. Came back for an early dinner with my fiancé & 6 month old. Lovely, friendly staff who were great with my baby. Very impressed with the food & the generous portions. My fiancé was pleasantly surprised by how much chicken he had in his main course. Service was brilliant on both occasions. My partner is that annoying person who likes to change items on his order & they were very accommodating with his requests.
