Just got back from another great weekend in Whitby. Booked a meal for Saturday 23rd Feb and as usual did not dissapoint. The restaurant was packed just about every table was booked, that says a lot. The food and service were excellent. The prices were pretty reasonable too. Will definately be booking again.

The restaurant itself was pleasing to look at from the outside, as such we found ourselves readily drawn in, however our experience was marred by poor service and terrible food. We became somewhat hesitant as we perused the menu, which actually offered very little in terms of authentic Italian cuisine, but felt inclined to stay as we didn't know if we would easily secure a table anywhere else.

We became suspicious when, having asked for a few amendments to be made to two pizza's (only asking for green peppers to be absent in both cases), we were told to expect a delay because those changes had to be made, which appeared indicative of a need for them to alter pizza's that had been made in advance. Both pizza's were later returned upon discovering that the base hadn't been properly cooked, and again once they were found to be horrible to eat.

The staff managed our complaint decently, removing the items from our bill, however our friends decided not to select alternatives, having seen the quality of food delivered to the remaining members of our party.

Terrible service from grumpy manager to illiterate waitress. Took over an hour to deliver wrong food. Quality of meals varied from ok through poor to absent. Won't be back.

We found this relatively new restaurant both clean and spacious, It was beautifully decorated and the staff were very professional and friendly. The food was tasty and competitively priced.Our meal consisted of Three starters, six mains and six desserts. When you factor in the three bottles of Rose wine and six soft drinks, the total of £155.00 was a very fair price. I have no doubt that we will be visiting again.

AVOID THIS ONE!!. Had the misfortune of eating here recently and it was truly one of the worst dining experiences ever. Pizzas tasted bland and I believe were frozen. Staff managed to get our order wrong, putting wrong toppings on pizzas. Ended up with things I dont like. No apology or offer of discount. The place was overmanned with several staff Simply stood around looking at us eat whilst laughing and joking to themselves. Made for quite an uncomfortable eating experience. I dont want to overhear the staff talking about staying out getting drunk till 4am. I also found the restaurant to be very cold and there was no atmosphere, due to the fact there was only one other couple in. I let the older Italian sounding gentleman know what I thought of the food and he was not interested at all. Never again. Unprofessional. Bad food and terrible atmosphere. AVOID!!!!
