I have been here numerous times and for good reason. The meals I order are always gorgeous and are seasoned to perfection. The staff are lovely and you genuinely feel as if you are in Italy. I have ordered dishes from pasta to pizza and everything has been incredible. However, my only gripe about this restaurant is that the prices... More

So much care goes into making each visit special, the staff are swift silent and attentive. You don't feel pestered and enjoy the evening start to finish. Try something new, you'll be surprised what the Italian menu has to offer (it's not just pizza and carbonara)

39 WI members came here for our Xmas meal. The service was fantastic and the food was superb. The added bonus of two guitarists entertaining us with fun, sing-along music was over and above our expectations. I've never seen our members so animated! We even managed some dancing! I didn't hear a single complaint and everyone enjoyed themselves.

Lovely location overlooking the marina. Now decorated for Xmas. Had great pizzas, very attentive staff. Also had tiramisu, very good but personally would have preferred it laced in alcoholic!! Couldn't taste any

We love this independent, family-run, spacious Italian restaurant. Six of us enjoyed an excellent lunch here last week; assorted starters with steaks, chicken, pasta and pizza - all different dishes and all excellent. Fresh, well-flavoured, good presentation and generous helpings. (Which explains why no desserts!) The staff are perfection: very friendly & helpful, while the background music is low-key Italian...

Picked this place as it wasn't part of a chain. The restaurant overlooks Port Solent Marina with some outdoor tables for warmer times. There was a Warm welcome on arrival and Service was prompt. Menu is fairly standard pizza / pasta with a few other bits, mostly reasonably priced. We all ordered pizzas which came fairly quickly and were cooked... More

We eat here regularly during the summer sailing months, especially on a Sunday night once we have arrived back and have moored up. It has a lovely spot overlooking Port Solent marina, and you can have a fabulous, reasonably priced pasta or pizza dish, as you watch the sun set.
