“Modern but homely Italian”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2014

Good home cooked Italian food, with great meat and fish dishes. The chef came out to talk to us about the menu and explain the specials which was a really nice personal touch. The other wait staff were friendly and efficient without being obtrusive. The portions are generally large so be warned! But doggy bags are available.

“Fantastic.”

Felt like a genuine family-run Italian restaurant. Excellent service and very friendly and great food. Loved it and would be regulars if we lived in Swindon!

“Didnt meet expectations”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014

Booked a Sunday lunch for my sons 19th birthday after hearing & reading great reviews but Im afraid it really fell short of any expectations I had.
Im all for the smart casual aproach but the proprietor was although friendly & helpful was to say the least scruffy!
Two of the group ordered the special Cheese Crepes & they looked delicious & both people enjoyed thoroughy, Pate special looked good & Im sure had I received the starter I ordered my would have been too.
Our main courses arrived & yes there was plently but a whole plate of meat was really not my idea of good dining.
My son was the only one to opt for dessert & ordered Poached Pear & did look good BUT he was asked if he wanted it hot or cold & not really sure why they gave him a choice as it was cold when he asked for it hot!
Very dissappointing visit & definitely not somewhere I will be spending my next spare £150

“Great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014 via mobile

The service here is excellent. Enjoyed a glass of wine at the bar whilst looking at the menu. The selection of specials were very impressive. Had an amazing sea bass with white wine and garlic sauce. Really enjoyed all of the food here.
