5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 February 2013

Family run since 1986. Very willing to take last minute booking, on arrival friendly helpful staff both food and wine first class – could not fault – cannot wait to return.

“Great Evening of authentic italian food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 February 2013

Another superb evening so relaxing and such lovely food cooked to order. This is one of my favourite haunts. Warm welcome, excellent choice of menu and they can look after dietry problems. No one is made to feel awkward and food is discussed at the table with the chef or his wife, so no confusion occurrs.

Great food, the duck has to be the best in torbay. The steak in green pepper sauce is a revelation.The Veal sublime. Combined with a friendly welcome its the place to go.

“Always a lovely Welcome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 January 2013

Wendy an Michela always offer you a very warm Welcome and beautifully cooked food. If you want food in a hurry, forget it this is not a fast food restaurant because everything is cooked to order and it is well worth the wait. You can enjoy Wendy's paintings, even purchase one or a copy of one of the books she has written whilst you wait. Try any of the Chicken and steak dishes the duck is great too - the Licquer Coffee especially the Sambuca one is beautiful. You will not be disappointed whether you are in a party or visiting as a couple, this is home from home for us.

“First visit...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2012

Have driven past this resturant for years... never ventured in. Heard some good reports so decided to try for myself. Glad I booked in advance as it was full, clearly many regular customers. Nicely presented menu, huge range of choice. All 4 of us chose different starters and different main courses, so we sampled everything from prawns, salmon, duck, chicken and steak. Overall the food was good... so why not excellent..
Barely sat down before we had to decide what to drink, no chance to look at winelist before it was suggested we try the house wine... which actually was very good. Presentation of food on the plates a little dated, The chef did come from the kitchen and check all was good with our meals, which was a nice touch. Overall the experience was a good one and yes we would revisit.
