When we arrived the restaurant was busy so we were pointed to the bar for a drink, not 10 mins later we were seated. The staff were all friendly and helpful from the moment we arrived until we paid the bill. Most important to myself and my wife is the quality of the food, it was excellent. Both meals were... More

Just brilliant. The food is great quality and plenty of it. Go at lucky time for the lunchtime deals. You cannot cook this cheap at home. The Resturant is dark towards the back end so it is nicer to sit in the window. Staff are friendly and helpful as always.

Stumbled on this treasure! Called on the off chance and although they had no tables for approx an hour we were invited to wait in the adjoining 'Sphere' cocktail and tapas bar. Cocktail was a lovely aperitif, when we did go through to the restaurant although it was very busy the staff were perfect! Very friendly and efficient and we... More

We visited on a Friday night and hadn't booked a table. The staff were quick to find us a table and the service was quick and friendly and they were obviously very busy as there was quite a few large groups. The food was lovely and tasty.

Visited Kendal for a short break in spring and the weather was dreadful, decided to go and find somewhere nice for dinner and it was worth going out in the rain for. Lovely clean smart restaurant with friendly staff and great food.

We were staying in Kendal as a group of 13 and needed an alternative to our hotel restaurant which we ate in the first night. On a walk around Kendal we found this restaurant and we count our lucky stars! We had a long table in the middle of the restaurant and the outstanding service and food cannot be faulted!... More

They do great pizzas and pasts, as you'd expect. Top tip is to go for Happy Hour. It's great if you've got kids who like obvious dishes which are part of the deal - probably not so useful if you want to eat less frequently ordered dishes which are not part of the deal. There's a good atmosphere and the... More

Was part of a large party of 13 that booked in for a meal on a busy Saturday night. The restaurant was very busy, and lots of background noise. However service was excellent and staff very attentive. Although an Italian restaurant it had a very varied menu and something for everybody. Food was served quickly and was absolutely lovely. All... More
