we've been here twice recently as we have a holiday home in the area and its a lovely italian restaurant. Quite cosy inside but very popular, both times we have visited around 5.30pm on a weekday as we have a young child, but by 7pm the place was fully booked up.
Prices are reasonable, with plenty of specials and the manager & staff are very friendly. The food is very good & definitely worth a visit (but book)

We just stayed in Windermere for one night, to break up a long journey down from Scotland. We hadn't booked anywhere and quite per chance discovered this restaurant, so we were very lucky to get a table straight away! The atmosphere was great, waiters and the owner were helpful, friendly and jolly. For the quality of food it is very fairly priced. One of the best meals me and my partner have had out in a long time! Was a lovely evening.

We stumbled upon this lovely restaurant in bowness and we were so pleased we had! It was delightful from beginning to end! It was a cold spring night and we were welcomed into this warm restaurant with yummy food and lovely wine, I can't really fault it!
The restaurant itself was like a typical Italian place with non fussy decor,the garlic prawns were gorgeous and the seafood pasta was perfect.we ordered a Barolo wine which was superb.
The atmosphere was great,fun and buzzy and the waiters were full of personality.
What a great evening definitely worth a visit!
