My wife (a Italian restaurant connoisseur!!) thought her lasagne was up there with the best she has ever had!! There was plenty of choice on the menu, the accommodation was comfortable and the staff were all very friendly - a superb evening all round.

Staff lovely and friendly. Even though we had two young children only 5&2 years old. Very Italian in the way they are with kids. Served by a lovely lady Donnatella probably spelt wrong sorry. Food was beautifully prepared and tasted fantastic. Prices were very reasonable.

Oh.my.gosh. If you are ever looking for somewhere to eat in Ilfracombe, or indeed within travelling distance I wholeheartedly recommend this wonderful Italian restaurant. As a family of four, including a very fussy 11 year old daughter, we rarely concur on the quality of the...More
