“Let's get the waitress smiling!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

Right in the market square in the lovely town of Wokingham and just about perfect on a sunny day. A pure delight for people watching whilst enjoying a coffee or tasting some superb food. The Italian folk who run it are very obliging extremely jovial and make a visit such a pleasant experience. The waitress is very good but so un-italian as she is blonde and scowls at the customers. There is no malice but it would be great to see her smile just once. We return time and time again and hopefully we will be there when she breaks into a smile or even a chortle. It's a good excuse to keep sampling the delicious food.

“Lovely lovely lovely”

Celebrated a friends birthday here. The waiter from London was brilliant and a great laugh. The food is amazing. Not cheap but we'll worth it. Lovely warm evening outside. Definitely recommended.

“Amazing!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2014 via mobile

We went there for a friends birthday. There was around 15 of us so with big tables sometimes it's hard to get it right but despite the fussy eaters and asking for everything without certain ingredients everything was spot on. Food was amazing and a bunch of lovely guys serving. Worth every penny!!

“Last minute decision”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2014

No booking made we turned up the courtyard was full the head waiter said if you can wait for 30 minutes I will have a table for you we sat outside and looked at the menus and in short time our table was ready. The tables are a little close together but it's no big deal. Nice selection of starters on the menu as well as mains the food was well presented and the staff although busy were very helpful. There chosen wines are also very good. Overall it was a present evening and a good meal with a price that was quite reasonable. I will eat there again and would recommend to friends.

“We no listen or care!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2014

Dinner tonight, me the wife, youngest daughter (10) and her friend (10). No room in the restaurant at 7pm not a problem, we sat outside. 3 pizzas and a fillet steak and chips. the steak was for the daughter.The steak served was not a fillet, whilst cooked to order, medium, it was not a fillet. maybe a rib, more like a sirloin at best. when we complained, i was brought a bowl of steaks from the kitchen, not sure how that relates to what we had on a plate. no apologies, nothing removed from bill despite spending £150. ignorant up their own, management. couple beside us commented that he ran some steak houses and agreed with our view this was not fillet. do not waste your money. having said all that our pizzas were good, although the bases could be a little more done. If this guy is the ex partner of Angelo from Rushetta, i now understand the EX! avoid if you want a good steak, we will avoid because it was not what we expect and regularly spend more than this on dinner.
