“top Italian shhhhh !!!”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

I am reluctant to write a review for this restaurant as when people discover how good it is then it might not be so easy to get a table next time i go there
The food is superb, how the chef knocks up those delicious pizzas pasta etc etc in such a small space is beyond me...the salad is the best i have ever eaten and i am not a great salad fan... the garlic bread is divine and oozing with oil and garlic scrumtious..... the staff are very friendly and nothing is too much trouble 10/10 for all the above
The ONLY downside is the loo is down a rather steep set of stairs so this would NOT be suitable to anyone who has trouble with stairs

“Best italian EVER”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

While the location is unusual and hidden, the food is the opposite. Beautiful food and large portions. I've lost count of the amount of times I've eaten at this restaurant. The staff are lovely and friendly. The only bad thing I could say about this place is the menu is very difficult to choose from as there are so many wonderful things on it. Fantastic hidden little Italy in the middle of southampton.

“Authentic Italian Cuisine”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

This is by far my favourite restaurant in Southampton and I have recommended it to so many people I have lost count! The atmosphere is amazing, the food is incredible and amazing value (I will never try anything other than Carbonara because I can't imagine how it could possibly be nicer!) and the staff are friendly and helpful but not over-bearing. Whether you're on a girls/guys night out, with the family or on a date I would definitely recommend this place.

“Little hidden gem”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

Understated, perfect little Italian restaurant. A quaint little menu with plenty of choice with a specials board that makes choosing a meal very difficult.

Our starters were fabulous and very tasty. My tuna main was cooked to perfection and extremely tasty.

We would definitely visit again and again and again.
