Really didn't expect it at all. It's tucked away down a side street - thought we'd try it because of the reviews on here - and weren't disappointed. We wandered in on a Saturday night and the place was full, but they fitted us in...More

Great little place somewhat off the beaten track but very worthwhile. Amazing food and large selection of wines and spirits all served by very professional but friendly staff. Go, you won't regret it

This is a nice little family run place and I'm sure they'd sort the gluten free thing out for you. I love it there.
is it a reasonable walking distance from Premier Inn Derby South?

Hi, no it's not. Premier Inn South is out of the centre, book a taxi and it should only take about 5/10 mins depending on traffic and be about £6/7'ish.

Italian trattoria, serving homemade fresh food 5 days a week. Family run, local institution, opened by Alfonso Mallardo, and now run by his two sons. In the evenings, we serve a mixture of Italian classics, and some more adventurous specials. Pop in for lunch for a quick bowl of pasta or platters of antipasti.
