“Fresh, tasty Italian food”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

Everything was excellent. The seafood pasta ('tagliatelle al pescatore') was exceptional for the £12 price tag, with heaps of fresh mussels, clams and other shellfish.

Service was polite and impressively efficient, on what was a very busy day (the restaurant was fully booked, with people at every table), food for eight people arrived in less than 15 minutes.

Good atmosphere, nicely decorated and authentic food.

“Friendly staff and interesting food well-cooked and well-presented”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

Stayed at a rental apartment nearby and this restaurant was recommended in their "where to eat" notes. Went for a late lunch - 4 adults, 2 small children - and had a really enjoyable meal. Staff were delightful, the food arrived quickly and was tasty and well presented. Liked it so much we went back with more family members and an extra small child the next day and again a few days later!

“Decent food at a fair price”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

A group of 8 of us visited here on a busy Saturday night and everyone had a good evening.

Service was good and we weren't waiting around too long for the food to arrive.

The food was nice but nothing mind blowing. I had minestrone soup for starter and linguine with clams for my main. The pasta sauce was tasty but there wasn't a great amount of clams, therefore slightly disappointing.

I'd visit again as the food is reasonably priced and the restaurant had a good atmosphere.

My boyfriend was over the moon to discover a gluten free Italian restaurant who adapted their pizzas to make them dairy free too, very impressed!,

We strive to accommodate all dietary requirements. All pizza and pasta can be cooked to suit a gluten free diet and we believe we have created the best tasting gluten free pizza base in Scotland. We have gone to the lengths of putting an Italian flag in our gluten free dishes to ensure that your have confidence in the food when it arrives at the table. I am pleased you both enjoyed the experience. Thank you for your custom.

“Wonderful Service”
Reviewed 25 May 2014

A family group visit, spanning three generations and everyone wanting something different. No problems! And when the three year old's pizza was too spicy, without even being asked, a lovely waiter spotted his distress, came and took it away and replaced it with a mild one, which was happily devoured. All combined for a superb visit. Highly recommended
