Our second visit to this hidden gem and even more impressed this time! Such a chilled and relaxed ambience and such warm service. Water bought to table with no prompting. We ordered 2 pastas, a pizza and calamari. I had homemade tortellini and my husband had arrabiata. Outstanding. Melt-in-your mouth pasta for my tortellini and my husband's arrabiata was so rich, thick and packed so much flavour and perfect amount of heat. Calamari was best ever, I had been put off calamari after previous bad experiences in Croatia but this was incredible. Such a light, crispy, salty batter and so fresh. Pizza was piping hot, gorgeous mozzarella and crispy and soft base. Shared a dessert which was also good. All this for £25! Please don't let the location of this place put you off because you will truly be missing out...let's keep small businesses like this trading. Truly wonderful and can't wait to return!

As huge pasta fans, we were not disappointed! We ate as part of a large group. The meat and cheese board was colossal, the calamari beautifully cooked. The lasagna, carbonara and tortellini were all lovely too! Only minor quibble was that we weren't offered pudding and it seemed they wanted to close up before we had a chance to order. That said it was a brilliant evening with great service and we'll be back for sure!

We visited this restaurant today randomly. The location was a little strange. It has a b1 post code so you would think you are in the centre of Birmingham, but actually the restaurant is in ladywood.
It had a Halloween theme which the kids enjoyed.
Service was excellent and the food incredible. Authentic Italian cuisine.
Prices are more than reasonable.
We had pizza all around for mains and they were large and delicious.
The kids had homemade deserts which were so nice, probably the best we have ever had.

I Have been meaning to try this's place for a while now, based on other positive reviews.

As already mentioned, the location is a little strange, but there's plenty of parking on street so we popped in for lunch. Service was friendly and prompt. We had fresh coffee with pizza and calzone. Food was authentic and lovely. Prices are cheap, £15 for a quick lunch.

Will return and recommend.
