Visited here several years ago. Still extremely busy and would advise to book. Food good restaurant only downfall is that it's small but it's quaint too. Definitely worth booking and trying it lovely Italian restaurant in the centre of Cardiff.

We'd had to cancel the two previous bookings we'd had for various reasons so we're desperate to find out if the reports of this place were true... they are, it is fabulous!

Really glad we booked this restaurant in advance as it was a rugby match day and the restaurant was very busy. Friendly welcome and a very cosy little place, with good and friendly service. The food was lovely, including tasty freshly made pizza and delicious pasta. Would thoroughly recommend, we'll be back.
