“Great wee café.”
Reviewed 26 September 2012 via mobile

We had lunch here before seeing a film at DCA. Rather spartan decor with rickety Formica tables but quick friendly service, excellent value and very authentic tasty food. I had the arancini and fettucini with artichokes and both were lovely.

“Mangiare!”
Reviewed 25 September 2012

I have wanted to try this place for a while but Hubbie wasn't as keen, so it took a sunny Saturday with nothing to do but jobs around the house to persuade him it would be good to walk over to the Perth Road instead!
In fairness, Hubbie and his Sicilian family take some beating in the pasta stakes and even I can rustle up a decent pasta dish - although it kills him to admit it!
I had the arancini to start with and I have never tasted better, lots of yummy sauce in the centre of the rice ball and Hubbie had a kind of pizza toastie, I forget what it was called but it tasted delicious. Perhaps both could have been a little warmer but I'm nitpicking.
I had penne with a tomato, chorizo and pepper sauce and hubbie had penne with mushrooms and peas in a cream sauce, both specials of the day, both delicious! Hubbie felt the pasta was slightly too al dente.
With a very tasty bottle of red wine and two espresso, the bill was £36!
Now Hubbie wants to go back when lasagne is on the menu! Molto bene!!

“Lovely meal in quiet surroundings with good service.”
Reviewed 2 September 2012 via mobile

We've been here a few times now and think this is an excellent cafe restaurant. There isn't a huge choice but what they have is very good. The cafe also have at least two specials of the day on their menu. A nice place to go and eat.
