“Lovely on a summers eve”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

I had some time to kill waiting for a train and chanced upon this restaurant. It has a small seated terrace out front which captured the evening sun and had shade. I was welcomed and ordered a spaghetti carbonara and espresso. The Carbonara was very good, not overcooked or too rich. It had some lovely smokey lardons and a nice bite. The espresso was ok. I whiled away a very pleasant time and the staff were very friendly and helpful. I will remember this place and hopefully return for a more substantial meal one day. Very nice, do visit.

“Lovely food and great service”
Reviewed 10 May 2014

Our first time here whilst mooching around Leamington today, and after a quick perusal of the TA app on my phone, we decided to try here and we're glad we did!
We went in and were quickly shown to a table and offered drinks and menus. We uumm and ahhhh'd about what menu to go for, the main menu or the special 'pre-cinema' one which offers a selection of courses for £9.50. We choose the special one, with the wife having for starters an anti-pasta of meats,bread and olives and myself having the garlic bread with mozzarella. Both dishes, although simple, were very well presented and tasted good. For the mains my wife had the chicken in peppercorn sauce with chips and I had the calamari with chips. Again, both dishes tasted great, and I was especially impressed with how big the chicken was on her plate! Also of mention are the chips, they tasted good ! Only tiny niggle is that the chicken probably could have done with a side salad, even a small one, just to finish it off.

The service was fantastic, with the waiter being attentive but not overly so, and also friendly without being familiar. This is something that other places I've been to recently could learn from, a smile and a friendly approach go a long way in making the customer happy!

We went for a lunchtime meal, but having now had chance to the menu it certainly won't be long before we're back for an evening one !

“Lovely Italian find in the heart of Leamington!”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

As already recommended by other reviewers, this is a great choice for a meal out. The service is very attentive and efficient, the food is beautifully cooked and the portions are of decent size, even the seafood dishes. This is a great destination for sea foodies.
Excellent value for money, too, we felt. We had 2 starters, two seafood mains and a dessert to share, with a bottle of lovely Sauvignon Blanc at £68. I will be returning for more- highly recommended!
