Scallops and chorizo was nice although the chorizo was a tad on the small size to get the full taste with the scallops. Chicken main course was good & well presented but a bit dry. I'd go back if I could tell from the website when it's opening hours are !

If you walk along the main street in Kirkby Lonsdale you may miss this wonderful Italian restaurant, whose lovely courtyard is hidden just off the road. DON'T! Make sure that you pay them a visit. You will not be disappointed. A lovely setting, whether you want a romantic meal or a light lunch or even just to sit outside with a nice glass of Pinot. Not only is the food to die for but the attentiveness of the staff is second to none. After we made ourselves comfortable, the owner John, came and had a natter with us (as he seemed to be doing with everyone who came through the doors). Nothing seemed like too much trouble for him and when we left, it was like we were saying goodbye to an old friend!
I will be returning here as soon as I can. And so should you.

We booked in for the Early Bird menu at a great price of £27.95 for 2 courses for 2 people with a bottle of house wine. The staff were very welcoming and friendly, and the service excellent. The food was delicious and well presented. I chose a pasta dish and asked if the sauce could be changed from cream to tomato. This request was accommodated without any fuss, and the dish was delightful. My husband had a pizza - delicious crispy thin base. The restaurant itself is lovely - contemporary but cosy decor and the background music is at just the right level. It wasn't a suitable evening to sit outside but would be wonderful on a sunny warm evening. We could not fault it in terms of price, food, service and ambience. Our first visit will definitely not be our last .

Travelled down to the lakes from Newcastle with mates for a short stay. Popped into the restaurant by chance to see if they served breakfast and after that we went back everyday ! Staff were very friendly and the food was excellent. Big shout out to the owner who couldn't be more helpful and accommodating to a group of hungover and hungry Geordies. BIG TONY LOVES IT.

On holiday from Newcastle and popped Into this restaurant just by chance. Me and three of our group from 7 are Italian restaurant managers and we were very impressed with the overall product this little restaurant had to offer. Staff were fantastic and was great to see the owner working along side them. Food was fantastic with a great selection on the menu. We are only staying for 3 nights in this town and will definitely be returning! 5 stars!
