We ate here after a recommendation from St Aubyns Guest House. The food was absolutely delicious, service great and good value also. You do need to book as fills up quite quickly! I do not usually have dessert but I had a cheesecake which was scrumptious. The only comment I really have is that the tables are quite close together but overall, a real find!

Very busy it was full, so was therefore loud with people chatting competing with the music. Food was hit & miss in as much as some of what is served straight from a supermarket packet & slapped on a plate which was disappointing, however the pizza seemed fresh and the pasta although was obviously out if a packet it was a huge portion. The staff are lovely and service was good albeit a little slow because of the place being crammed full. Go again ? Yes but be selective on what eating and not get something out if a packet.

We visited this Italian restaurant a number of times last year (during our holiday in Burnham on sea) and we've visited a number of times during this years holiday.

It is, in our opinion the best restaurant to visit (assuming you like Italian) in Burnham on Sea and for us, possibly the best Italian restaurant we have ever had the pleasure of eating in. From the wine list to the menu to the decor and service this really is a nice restaurant to visit. They have a website that you can look at prior to booking a table, from memory, open every day from 5pm.
