“Fantastic food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2014 via mobile

This was my first visit as an Italian restaurant. I had been before when it was the Volcano Stone. The decor had changed and the bar had been moved. It looks great. The menu had a lot of things on it that we had never tried. The starters we quick coming out and the portion size was generous. The main course was fantastic and again a generous portion size. The quality was really good. I used to rate Diva in Poole the best but now I have a new favorite. Cost of the meal was reasonable. 2 starters 2 main courses a bottle of wine and 2 Irish coffees came to 60 quid. I will be coming back soon.

“Never fails to impress”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2014

Such a lovely restaurant, we don't eat out often but the staff always remember us by name and even remember our fav wine(when we can't!)
The food is fresh and tasty, I can recommend the spaghetti pescatora, loads of seafood and delicious. Really reasonably priced, the wine is also not too expensive.

“An Oasis in Parkstone! Full Marks For this restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 March 2014

If you like Authentic Italian /Sardinian Style Cuisine, this restaurant is not to be missed.
Don't be fooled by it's location, it really is something special.

The service is both excellent and one of those very rare things for the UK-personal!

We have been both as a couple and as a large group, its like returning to that restaurant when you are on holiday-the welcome is warm and friendly when you walk in and you really are made to feel special.

And that's just the start of it ! Authentically cooked food, reasonably priced, with a varied and well structured menu that would give a great variety for Vegetarians, or steak, pasta or fish lovers alike. I am such a fussy fish eater, and my husband is very particular about his steak being medium/rare and amazingly they always get it right every time on both counts.

My favorites are the Gnochetti, and the Seafood Risotto. There isn't anything disappointing that i have had on the menu, and I've tried most of it. A Good tip is to ask for a wine they recommend, you won't be disappointed- and the bottle is never an over expensive one either.
Its so refreshing to go to a restaurant that is so unpretentious and just so good at doing what they do- fabulous food at a fabulous price served by friendly welcoming staff, hurrah!
