Ok, so if you want silver service 'waiting on', starched white napkins, extensive menu and pretentious gumf then this may not suit your desires.

If you like a small, relaxed and very friendly place, which in actual fact is a bit like going into someones dining room, with an aga at one end and a wood burner at the other, with really tasty food ..... then you may like it.



We loved it, and would go back. Scrumptous pizzas, the very thin type which were undoubtedly the best pizzas north of Palermo, were as far removed from the 'cheeses on toast' pizzas you get in so many of the take away places. And hec! the aubergine pasta was better than you get in Pisa. As for the Tiramisu. It WAS the real thing. NO! It was better than that!!

Don't go if you are in a rush, it's not slow, but it is relaxed. Just be prepaerd to talk with who ever you go with!!

It was all delicious, friendly and peaceful. And you get cloth napkins, just not white starched! I'd go again. BTW its BYO

We visited on the 26th November, we were the only ones in there and it was lovely. Log burning fire and marble tables. The food is freshly cooked and has lots of flavour, the restaurant doesn't take cards so be prepared to have cash on you. There was only 1 person working when we went but she seemed lovely. They don't serve alcohol but you are more than welcome to take your own along. Only downfall was that you are charged £1 for glass of water.

We had dinner here as we tend to prefer quirky places over big restaurants, and the other reviews made us curious. Well, you can either love or hate this place, and we loved it. A very limited choice of very good Italian food, prepared freshly on order. The service (or rather lack of it) and Bohemian state of the tiny dining room is certainly not for people that need flattering waiters and posh ambience, but if you are willing to accept the place as it is you certainly won't regret it. Bring your own alcoholic drinks and bread-rolls, lean back and enjoy a unique experience.

This is a bit like going round to a friends house who is a really good cook. The pizza is the closest thing to a real Italian pizza I have had in ages. My pasta al fungi was great too. Quirky place - book before 4 or you won't get one of the 3 or so tables for Saturday evening. Great lunch venue if you are in that part of Derbyshire.
