My wife and I love small, family run Italian restaurants and have eaten in many places in Manchester, Birmingham, Newport, Cardiff and London and I stress that these are not at "chain" restaurants. We are so lucky to have one such restaurant in our hometown of Blackwood, South Wales The place itself is rustic and authentic in atmosphere, with a... More

Loretta is the hostess with mostest for sure. So smiley and friendly, though how she manages with some folk is a mystery to me. Eight of us had lovely meals at what we thought a very reasonable price. The service was swift, the food was yummy. We all said we would like to return for a repeat performance. A lovely... More

Why isn't anything done about giving the place,a lick of paint and a new catpet? Waited 30 mins to order and another hour for the food that was mediocre.

Enjoyed an evening meal here with friends for a 30th birthday, as we had pre ordered starters were out within 10 mins of us sitting down. I ordered the tagliatelle spezzatino, which was delicious. Although a friend found a hair in his pasta so was cooked a fresh one. One also hadn't received her meal by the time people had... More

My wife and i had been here once before and loved it so we decided to return as a family. We had booked eight but only 7 turned up. It was a birthday meal for our 2 sons. The staff can't do enough. The drinks are reasonably priced and a good selection. The food is excellent and great value for... More

We went out for a meal after a returning from holiday about 8 years ago now We had a warm welcome and the food was really nice. The deco in the restaurant was something from the 60's and could do with a lick of paint and the music was very boring and depressing. This really didn't cause any annoyance just... More
