It was a busy night but still no excuse for very patchy service. The starters arrived at the same time as the main course - we suggested they took the starters back. The main dishes were good, nothing special but your usual reliable Italian pasta dishes.

If you enjoy pasta dishes especially with seafood then you will love this restaurant. Also don't be afraid to try their traditional fish and chips, simply wonderful. My wife found the pizzas excellent. The crab soup and the grilled sardines are highly recommended as starters. Always busy it pays to book or eat very early.

Thought I'd try the pizza with potatoes, and it was absolutely wonderful. More subtle than it sounds, just a few slices of new potato scattered among the other toppings. I assume they have a wood fired oven, because the base was perfect, and it was served pretty quickly (especially considering how busy they were). I like pizzas, and I've had... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our meals but felt unfortunately neglected by the waiting on staff who seemed too busy chatting to friends/family/each other to pay us much attention. We waited a ridiculous amount of time trying to catch their eye to pay our bill. The chefs were great though and very accommodating.

Visited here on a Friday night, managed to get a cancelled table at late notice but i'd recommend booking. We were shown our table on arrival and the service from the 2 waitresses was 1st class all night. We sat up near the kitchen and pizza oven and it was fantastic to watch the head chef and pizza chef at... More

Quite a varied menu and nice looking fish specials. I had linguine marinara which was lovely and chef was able to make without garlic and chilli which don't agree with me. Lots of fresh herbs on it. Partner had veg risotto which was good. House wine very good. Staff friendly and efficient. Would definitely go back

This was a great find on the way back home from Alnwick. Four of us had pizza all of which were delicious having been cooked in a wood fired pizza oven. My husband had the special fish and chips which he said was delicious too! Would definitely recommend if you're passing by Alnmouth.
