Had coffee and ended up staying for lunch! Lovely, friendly staff and delicious fresh cooked authentic italian food. Reasonably priced. Ideally suited for theatre or gallery/museum visit. A great find and we will definitely be back soon!

Having popped in for a coffee a few days ago and clocking the great looking menu, I decided to go back for dinner and wasn't disappointed. The owner is very friendly and suitably passionate about the Sicilian cuisine. I was very pleasantly surprised to be given a vegetarian menu as long as the 'normal' menu with some fantastic options, just like in southern Italy where a lot of the food is vegetarian. The food was absolutely delicious and I can't wait to go back. I would highly recommend this place to anyone who wants authentic Italian food served by authentic, friendly Italian staff!

I met a former colleague here for a light lunch. What a lovely surprise to find such an individual little diner in this part of Southampton. The staff were welcoming, the atmosphere was relaxed and upbeat, the service excellent and the food delicious.

If you are looking for authentic food and like a venue with loads of personality do give it a try.

Went there a couple of times for coffee. Very nice coffee, nice fresh pastries. Also, they have apricot juice, which I have not been able to find since I moved to the UK, amazing! Very polite staff.
