“Will Give It A Miss”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2014

Hadn't been here for years so decided to call in and see if it was as good as it used to be, unfortunately for us, it wasn't. The food was mediocre as was the service, the waiters just didn't seem interested. My daughter has since visited and it was the same when she was there. She was overcharged and when she pointed it out, the waiter wasn't pleased, what's that all about, he should have been apologising! It's a case of been there, done that and won't be doing it again.

“Lunchtime very special.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2014 via mobile

Hadn't been here for ages but called in with a friend for lunch and had a very tasty risotto. It was a much bigger portion than I expected so I only had one course but will definitely be back. Compares very well to the more recent eateries in Morpeth.

“Good Italian food however not perfect”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2014 via mobile

We came here after a day in Newcastle. There wasn't any tables free so we sat in the bar area while we waited. The decor was very nice, it's been done out since we last visited.

We had potato skins to start which were amazing, the chilli and garlic sauces were extremely tasty and the skins were proper skins not small baked potatoes.

For our mains I had a pollo pizza with chillis and onions which was nice however the crust was abit burnt.

We didn't have any deserts or coffees and as we visited on happy hour the meal was fairly cheap.

Apart from the burnt crusts of the pizza the other negative points were that certain customers (possibly frequent diners) were offered free bread and after dinner liquor which we weren't. I feel that they should offer that to everyone.

“Marvellous surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2014

Four of us stopped at Morpeth for lunch on the way to Newcastle to start a cruise. What a great surprise this restaurant is. We had a marvellous meal -even though we all had something different everyone enjoyed their meal. Full marks for the Riggatoni it was brilliant. The staff were great, interested in what they were doing and knowledgable about the food. A special mention for Franco who was a revalation.
