Absolutely first class. The only problem is - due to popularity - getting a table at short notice! They are usually booked more than six months ahead!

You have to book well in advance, but it being our 47th wedding anniversary my wife thought ahead and did so! A lovely lunch: Bresaolo, then she had their signature dish of spaghetti with lobster which was delicious. It's a great location, very nice service, and a happy place for an anniversary. Hoping to go again the next time we... More

We have been to this restaurant three times in the last 4 months. Once for lunch and twice for dinner and have not been disappointed. Being a very popular restaurant means that you have to book well in advance especially for dinner. It's only open from Wednesday to Saturday (now no longer open Sunday lunchtimes apparently) and you will find... More

I have spent the last 35 years eating in top restaurants around the world – and this restaurant is right up there in the top percentile. Polly and Elio and their excellent team create an outstanding experience... The service is 2nd to none, the food is wonderfully fresh and exciting and the wines are delicious and reasonably priced.

We have a place in Italy. So many Italian restaurants in this country are very English! This is the real deal, an Italian chef and his team who are confident in the original Italian product and don't compromise. Excellent fish!

Superb food prepared as you like it, nothing is too much trouble. The downside is that it is so popular, if you want a Friday or Saturday night, you will have to book well in advance, however it is worth it!

We were well looked after here for my birthday lunch. Seamless service and warm staff made for a really comfortable, well paced family meal. Calamari starter is to die for and perfect. For my main I chose their much talked about lobsters spaghetti dish. Just the right amount of kick of chilli for me. Nice chunks of lobsters throughout. Not... More

You have to book in advance this Restaurant is so popular. The location is great in a picturesque village, a fantastic find, fresh food cooked just like an Italian Nonna would have liked. Average prices for above average food and service. Don't go or there won't be a table for me ! PS The Pasta is perfection !
