Turned up with no reservation and was given a lovely table for two in the window, it had been a long day and we really appreciated their kind and swift attention. The mushroom risotto was a pure delight, and my husbands chilli pasta was cooked to perfection. Giovanni owner/manager was on great form and a perfect host. Can't wait to call again.

Went back here on this visit to Ilfracombe after having such a good meal here when we were down in March.

Cannot fault it, the meal was fantastic, we had 3 courses, everyone was great.

Friendly staff and decent prices too, make sure you go, you won't be disappointed.....

Very friendly place. Typical Italian dishes. Pizzas are not their best dish. Very accommodating staff.

This small Italian restaurant was delicious - I didn't think it'd be much different to most italian's I have previously visited but this was a nice change!

My lasagne came out bubbling and was very smooth and creamy, my Partner throroughly enjoyed his Pizza fantasia too!

The service & amotsphere wasn't the best but it was a Sunday evening whilst the World Cup final was on, so we put it down to just that!

I would definitely go here again and recommend others to try it!

We called in without booking, on Thursday 26th June, we were given a nice table for two. The service was friendly and professional and the restaurant had a really good vibe about it.
We had the olives and fresh breads, which were very nice and the Mushroom risotto and chicken with a wild mushroom sauce for mains, both very enjoyable. The menu and wine list were reasonably priced, we will visit the next time we are in Ilfracombe.
