This is a very good Italian restaurant situated in a place where people can see it when they walk along the seafront roads. I have rung up for a last minute table on several occasions and haven't been refused yet. They have several excellent waiting staff and the chefs are excellent too. Go along and try it yourself.

Lovely place to go, food amazing but not always good for the intimate diner. Seating on our visit was a little cramped, not much space between tables.

Lovely food with very friendly staff. A really great restaurant that is a firm favourite with my children who are aged 13 and 10. When open the place does tend to get very busy so I would recommend booking a table.

I must admit I wasn't too sure what to expect of this restaurant. We'd seen it earlier in the day and as many restaurants in Ilfracombe were closed, it felt as though there wasn't a lot else to choose from. However we had a fantastic meal which was very tasty and satisfying. The house red was very drinkable and the staff were attentive. It is a very large restaurant - a big space to fill - but groups of people sat all around, some clearly regulars, and all in all had a nice ambience.

A pleasant surprise and worth a visit.
