Paid a lunchtime/early afternoon visit to this new little restaurant in St.Marychurch. A welcoming atmosphere and pleasant surroundings. Staff were quick to greet us and take us to a table. There appeared to be two waiting staff at the tables and both served us during our meal. Both were very pleasant and friendly.

I ordered the Spaghetti Carbonara and my Wife ordered Roasted Vegetable Frittata. Order was provided in good time, not to long but not too quickly. Both meals looked very appetising. I must say that the Carbonara could well be the best I have tasted. Most enjoyable. My Wife was very pleased with her meal, apparently it was "full of flavour".

An enjoyable experience and we will certainly visit again. Perhaps next time we will go along on a Friday or Saturday evening.

A stone's throw from the beautiful Babbacombe Downs, this new opening is such a welcome newcomer to Torquay's eating out scene. Seven of us visited on a Friday night for a birthday celebration, and a fabulous night was had by all. The menu is refreshingly short, a nod to the chef's commitment to using the best of fresh ingredients, yet comprehensive enough to offer something for all tastes - I had two particularly fussy eaters joining me, who had no problems choosing. The chef delivers great Italian regional food, reflecting his great love of the country. Arancini were sublime, as was the generous seafood salad. Mains packed a punch with flavoursome sauces and a great selection of perfectly cooked vegetables. Those with room for dessert were not disappointed. The well priced wine list could benefit from a few more Italian wines, but an easily resolved small criticism. The service was outstanding - thoughful, attentive, and very professional. If the opening gambit is anything to go by, this lovely find should go very far.
