By far the best Italian in Oxford. Have been numerous times and never left disappointed! Have had several things including pizza and pasta and they are always seriously good! Not the sort of place if you want somewhere fancy but it's not trying to be! Would recommend the penne del a casa!

Although the atmosphere is charming, the food left a lot to be desired. The fish plate to share as a starter seemed to be cooked from frozen- I wouldn't have normally expected battered deep fried scampi from an italian restaurant and it wasn't presented particularly pleasantly. The mains were much better- my girlfriend loves an amatriciana pasta and really enjoyed hers- nice big portions too. I had a chicken and asparagus pasta and it lacked seasoning and flavour but still a nice portion size.

The wine was served nice and cold and the service was friendly enough. We came early and saw the restaurant fill up so it is obviously very popular and we didn't try the pizzas but there were plenty going out for delivery but I don't think we will give this restaurant another try based on the quality of the starter- if I wanted scampi from frozen I'd go to a fish and chips shop or iceland.

This restaurant feels like a local Italian restaurant. Good food, house red wine is amazing, great service and very reasonably priced. 2 pizzas and a bottle of wine for £30. One of my favourites on Cowley Road.

Busy authentic Italian restaurant, quite small with fast service. Visited early evening and people were soon queing out of the door for a table which speaks volumes

We come here minimum once a month. Their pizza is the best in Oxford, house wine is lovely you can get in a carafe. We usually eat olives and brushetta too. The service is also good, I love the music and an atmosphere too. It is a very small, cosy restaurant with lot of character. Recommend for anyone , anytime.
