This is not somewhere to go for a great night out but, if what you want is a pleasant meal and friendly service, then it is highly recommended.

As two vegetarians, we were part of a group dining here last Saturday in the very attractive upstairs room. The one vegetarian main course, an absolutely delicious stack of aubergine slices covered in polenta, layered with grated courgettes, tomatoes and Bel Paese cheese, was one of the best dishes we have ever had at a non-vegetarian restaurant.

The restaurant was reasonably busy when we arrived and we were quickly welcomed and shown to our table. We have dined here a few times but for us, on this occasion, all the food was not quite up to the usual high standard. That's not to say there were not some highlights such as the classic antipasto which was excellent... More

We were 9 adults + toddler + 2 babies and had a pleasant upstairs room. Antipasti and drinks swiftly supplied while everyone deliberated over the tempting main course choices. Fettuccini, risotto, lasagne, grilled sardines - no-one was disappointed. Excellent desserts too, even the custom made one (chocolate ice cream and Nutella only - with no trimmings!) for our 31 year... More

Sometimes you just want a neighbourhood local Italian.This place ticks the box and is a firm favourite with the students.Pasta was al dente as I like it and the service excellent.Good value.

We were a group of four adults and ate from the a la carte menu (the fixed price, two-course "lunch special" is not available on Sundays. The food was fine, I particularly enjoyed my lasagne al forno. Service was excellent when we arrived (pre-booked) at 1200 noon but slowed as the restaurant filled up around 100pm. Total cost (4 starters,... More

I took my daughter out for a simple dinner. My goodness it wasn't simple. We had the most delicious meal with every single thing being one of the best examples of that thing I have ever had. So I had pasta - sublime, salad to start - sublime. Even the hot chocolate I finished with was delicious. Well done La... More

We came here one Friday night for a late dinner. We were able to get a table and they were still serving food after 9pm (which seems rare on our side of Cambridge). The waiter was very friendly and helpful and it was quite a relaxed atmosphere inside. The portion sizes were quite big. I got a pizza and couldn't... More

Went for a team meal and they arranged a single table for all 14 of us, which provided a very nice setting for the team meal. The quality of the food was as always top notch. The menu does not innovate but excels in the quality of the ingredients. Everything I've had was very very tasty. The service is quite... More
