“Delicious food!”
Reviewed 9 March 2014 via mobile

Recently went here with work friends and the food was beautiful and the service was brilliant especially being such a large table! I only felt one thing let this place down and it was the smell of the toilets.. It come as a shock to me as this place is beautiful.. I will return again though!!

“Fantastic restaurant”
Reviewed 7 March 2014

Dined there on the evening of Tuesday March 4th. This is the only restaurant in Wind apart from La Bras that is a non chain.
Food, atmosphere and service were excellent. I adore Italian food and this was exceptional and very good value.
Calamari out of this world, very tender and well presented, Seafood linguine simply sublime and the Creme Brulee out of this world as was the lovely Italian waitress!
We arrived at 6pm and by 7pm there were about 20 diners there, and this was on a cold, damp March midweek evening.

“What a little gem”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

This is a real hidden gem in a busy road in Swansea and well worth a visit.

We visited around 3pm on a Saturday afternoon and tried out their set meal, washed down with a bottle of wine and couldn't fault it.

The restaurant had a nice friendly, sort of oldfashioned style and atmosphere to it. Been to Momma Mias a few times and find it too commercialised and modern with no atmosphere (food good though), but this place is more authentic Italian.

Highly recommended.

Don't be put off that it is in a busy street full of pubs.

Very pleasant restaurant although a little cold. Good menu fair prices for lunch. If you are a big eater then you'll need extras. Friendly staff who were very attentive and polite. Will visit again

“A pleasure ”
Reviewed 22 February 2014 via mobile

Came for dinner Thu 20th Feb when Napoli FC were in town. Good food (bruschetta, prawns in shell, linguini ebriaca) friendly service. Good portions and value. Food was not overly salty (so great for us). Would come again next time in town.
