Visited this gorgeous little place twice in 3 days! (My wife left her glasses 👓 there, so we had to return😀. ) It was recommended to us 2 or 3 years ago, by a couple in a pub, but it’s almost always booked out, so...More

Stumbled upon this restaurant by accident after being unable to get a table at chain restaurants. A gem. I had pasta, my partner had pizza. Both exemplary. Couldn't fault it at all. Free wine with the Earlybird Special was very nice (I usually only drink...More

Nice food and atmosphere in the restaurant. The only gripe I would have is that the starter took too long to come out and the waiter didn’t bring our change back when we paid. I will put it down to forgetfulness and not sneaky trying...More

We went for late-ish dinner on Friday 22 June 2018. Every atom of this place is 100% genuine Sardinian, from the Italian football on the huge (silent) TV screen, to the shabby primary colour decor to the no-nonsense tables and chairs, to the lovely staff,...More

A strange little restaurant... When my partner and I first entered we were greeted warmly, but to our dismay were seated on horrible (I assume) plastic garden chairs at our table, which was situated right between the "bar" and toilets, and had a view right...More

For a main and drink at £9.50 you can’t complain, so I won’t. But I’ll kindly point out the pasta dish was ok but nothing wow and the same for my lady’s margarita pizza. The Restaurant has a great vibe with Italian sound track provided...More
