So good its difficult to get in, managed to get a table and went back the next night to celebrate our 50th Wedding Anniversary. Food is amazing, home cooked and delicious, service so friendly. Wished we lived near enough to go every week. The prices are so reasonable.

Left it fairly last minute to reserve a table for Good Friday and was lucky (and pleased) to get in. Easily parked nearby. Had a lovely meal, we both went for the 'special' Salmon pasta dish and it was excellent. Followed up by homemade Tiramusu ... highly recommended! This is definitely one of the gems of Ilfracombe.

Very nice friendly staff, great house red. The menu had a very good choice, plumbed for the seafood risotto and the canaloni both were very flavoursome and true to tradition. We had a very enjoyable evening and found it to be good value too. Yes would go here again

Out with three children and two adults. We had pizzas, pasta and veal. Also salads and garlic bread. Great house wine. The children were really impressed and loved their meals. Wonderful service and attention. I am GF with lots of other i tolerances and they were able to cater for me. A must go to place. Book to avoid disappointment.

My favourite Italian anywhere The service is always excellent as is the food. Highly recommend the Fungi Monte Bianco starter and the Tiramisu dessert. The Valpolacheli wine is superb too
