An amazing Italian restaurant in busy Salamanca Square! Something for everyone in our party, though I regularly return for the lamb cutlets, Italian style... other family members are over the moon with their Pizzas. Service is always courteous and friendly, and helpful, even the music provides a good ambience! And the deserts are legendary!

Arrived as a party of six without a booking late on a Friday. Offered an outside table with no heating, but they managed to find a table inside when we turned to walk away. Apart from this initial stumble, the rest of our dining experience was pleasurable. Our waitress was attentive, pleasant and joined in our light-hearted banter. The food... More

We dined there last night...had not booked but they found us a table. While it was not on the menu they made me a mussel in tomato sauce entree which was beautiful. My main of risotto was also good. Service was very good. I would go again and recommend !

I have been here plenty of times, work diners, birthday dinners. They have the best saffron and prawn risotto, I cannot recommended this dish enough. They also have mains that change through the week, if you come across the tomato pesto pappardelle, you have to try it.

Popped in for lunch, restaurant was quiet with just a couple of other tables. I was given a menu and told about he specials which all sounded good. I had the beef salad special which was delicious. The waitress was very good and knew all the specials well. Food was very tasty. I'd visit again. It's a nice spot to... More

We were hungry and looking for fish and meat dishes. Ordered trevalla, duck and porterhouse steak. Oooops! They blew it with the porterhouse. I don't know what it was, but not porterhouse. Tough as boot leather, full of gristle. The cut was all wrong. Had to send it back. The fish and duck was very nice for the rest of... More

I'll start by saying the food was good. However we arrived at 7pm, and our main course was served at 2115. It took about half an hour for someone to come and take our drinks order.... at this point we ordered drinks, entree and main at the same time because we didn't want to wait all night. The entree arrived... More
