“Amazing food”
Reviewed 22 October 2013

We would like to thank staff for providing us with such a wonderful night out. I think they were ready to close as it was late on Sunday night,but they sat us down and were both very friendly. The food was amazing and the whole experience took us back to Italy.

“POOR EXCUSE FOR AN ITALIAN”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

After looking at this restaurant on Trip Advisor and it appearing 19th best restaurant in Shanklin we decided to pop in for dinner. We were greeted by a friendly waitress and decided on starters of garlic bread and squid, this consisted of three breadcrumbed rings of squid with mayo and salad (£5.50) this was quite nice if a little sparse for the price, however the mains were a different story all together, chicken in brandy and cream was not chicken breast as expected but a drumstick and thigh which was stringy and tough and the sauce had no flavour, a chicken, bacon and mushroom pasta in a marsala sauce was also ordered which was tasteless and very mediocre to say the least, but to be fair the waitress did explain that the sauce was not thickened in any way.The bill came to over £40, our verdict....if you like good Italian food give this a miss, even Dick Turpin wore a mask when he robbed people!!

“Excellent service and great food”
Reviewed 4 October 2013

We had a lovely meal here, the waitress was chatty and helpful.The decor is a little tired and dated, but this did not spoil the enjoyment of the meal. Unfortunately it was the end of the season, so we were the only customers there at 7.30pm, the chef left at 7.45pm!

We enjoyed the meals we chose from the extensive menu. Service was good and the waitress friendly and attentive. We will go back when we next visit the island.
