Firstly Victor wouldn't thank me for writing a review, he doesn't entertain the idea of all and sundry patronising what is by far the best culinary experience Alderley has to offer. The facade of the premises is dated and displays no sign, it's as inconspicuous as can be, by design. You may not even find this place hidden in plain sight. The door is often locked during opening hours to dissuade the casual opportunist diner, in summer even the tables outside display their permanent reserved signs. However, if you are lucky enough to catch the door unlocked and Victor gives you the nod of approval you're in for a treat. The decor, tables and chairs are fabulously unimpressive. There are no menus, there are no payment card facilities, there are no frills. What there is on offer is the most fantastic, freshly prepared, authentic Italian cuisine you can imagine. Just tell Victor what you want and he will create your dish freshly from scratch. From pizza to lobster you will not be disappointed. This place is an absolute gem, lost in time, its authenticity in stark contrast to the soulless glass and chrome restaurants that surround it. This is how food used to be and I guarantee if you ever eat here you will want to return. Victor, I salute you!

A great find, if a little eccentric. One man prepares and serves the food with a smile. No menu, he just asks you what you want and prepares it completely fresh. We had beautiful minestrone soup, served with toasted ciabatta topped with pesto. Very tasty. Followed by freshly toasted cheese panini. Highly recommended.

Small restaurant to go with family, friends or a couple. The owner is an old man who makes a really good bruschetta, rissotto, pasta and pizza. Orange tiramisu is also amazing!!
