Understandable why this place gets pretty busy. Good food and drink, served efficiently and not too pricey. A great place to pop into whenever you don't fancy cooking.

These guys make the best pizza and pasta, with that authentic Italian touch to it. My husband and I dropped in for a quick lunch post seeing the Rochester castle. Right from the great service to getting the food quickly to maintaining top notch quality,...More

I frequently eat here both with my husband my sons and girlfriends. I am Italian and I can honestly say that the food is great and portions are generous. All staff are very friendly and welcoming. By far the best Italian in Rochester

It seems that Rochester closes at 4pm on a Sunday. Stumbled starving into this restaurant. Lovely meal for four, good service and nice food. Good choice of pasta dishes and good pizza.

Did not enjoy at all . Overrated food . Waiting staff never smiled . Portions are tiny and was expensive. There’s other Italian restaurants in Rochester that are far better . This is the bottom of the list
