But too good to deprive them of it. The staff are friendly, food is delightful and served quickly, and the restaurant feels very authentic. The menu is small but caters for all tastes- five pasta dishes but all sounding delicious. And it's reasonably priced. We can't wait to return!!

A Saturday lunch, booked for noon (don't try and just turn up), table at the back, whatever you have it's great. Sam & Luigi run a great place. Lasagna to die for, limoncello mousse for pudding. I wish it was closer to Bradford but worth a 40 mile round trip a few times a year! Keep up the excellent work.

Having had a fantastic meal which was clearly fresh, tasty and very authentic! It was sadly ruined through two falsehoods. (1) A complete lie about all the card machines being down in Ilkley forcing a trip to the bank for cash payment (second time this excuse was given after a lunch time coffee a couple weeks earlier) (2) The bill...

Went today 1:45 Friday 24/3/17. 3 people £33. Cash only, no debit or credit cards due to excessive bank charges . Don't blame them. 3 red wines, 3 main meals, 3 coffees. Everything very tasty, as usual. Polite and attentive staff. Genuine Italian food and owner. No sweet course due to watching our waistlines. We had to pre-book, it gets... More

Lovely staff, lovely table by the window, lovely lasagne and frangipane tart. And very good value. Came for lunch with family for the first time and really enjoyed it. Not fancy, just cosy atmosphere with authentic Italian cooking. Would definitely go back without a doubt. Great!

I visited with 4 friends for the first time last night. The service was quick and the food tasty. Our waiter was very friendly and helpful. Nice atmosphere. The x84 bus stops right outside the door if you don't wish to drive. Only minor criticism is that the menu was on the board in Italian so our waiter had to... More
