A friend and I walked down the chine from Westbourne. We sat in the sun in the window and a lovely man came and took our order. I chose Bianchetti Fritti with Insalata Di Pomodoro and my friend had a Smoked Salmon Panini. All were delicious and the service was excellent. It's in a beautiful location and I'd love to... More

Found this Italian restaurant by chance. When we entered we received a very friendly greeting. We were shown a table and from then on the service, the attention we had was superb. The order was taken and brought to our table not long after. The flavours in our choices were excellent. This is a great and friendly restaurant in a... More

We went as a family of four on a Saturday evening. Glad we booked as rather busy. Service was very good indeed. Lovely setting and decor. Tables were nicely spaced. Food was excellent. Between us we had varied dishes - pizza, pasta, salad and mussels. All were very tasty with good sized portions. Will definitely be returning.

Restaurant's interior looks modern, but it keeps traditional elements like colours, or decorations, like peppers in jars. Service was very nice and helpfull. Our waiter was Joseph, professional, elegant gentleman. I had a pizza Vesuvio. It was really tasty, but I'm not sure about rucola topping, it was too much bitter, and spicy. Dough was bit too soft. For the... More

Been here many times and we can't resist the cannelloni, which is actually a vegetarian dish, but delicious. One day we'll try another dish. Lovely selection of cakes as well. Living in Westbourne we enjoy dining on their patio area in the warmer months but inside is very pleasant as well. Very professional and friendly staff and excellent lager.

Visited with family for lunch. Asked the waiter for allergen guide/menu and he didn't know what I meant but just totally dismissed me until he finally said he would get someone over to the table. Someone came over (after a long wait) with no allergen guide and didn't really know the menu. Played it safe and went for plain spaghetti... More
