Called in without a reservation early on a Saturday evening. Not busy at all though by the time we left, a few more tables had turned up. The usual Italian menu with nothing unusual. My wife had salmon and I had a pizza. To say they advertise as "Lincoln's authentic Italian Restaurant" the pizza wasn't anything special at all. Service... More

First time visit but we will be back. Four of us had lunch from main menu. All very happy with starters, mains and desserts. Very pleasant staff, good menu and wine choice. Clean, comfortable warm atmosphere.

We were planning to call for a meal at Pizza Express around 6.45pm on a Saturday night but it was packed with a 45 minute wait so on impulse we came here. I have to say it wasn't that busy but we got a table window and the young lady serving us was prompt and efficient and the meals arrived... More

Meal for 2 with 2 drinks £60, not in the least worth it. Should known better than an empty restaurant on a Friday night.

Saturday Lunchtime. Food took 45 minutes to arrive. Our table was near the kitchen and next to the bar - very noisy, sounded like a bottle bank, .chef' screaming at staff . . . . Chicken and mashes potato dish was sent back. Chicken severely burnt, mash the consistency of soup. Chef needs to get his head down, and concentrate... More

It was a quiet evening during the week, with one large table who were on desserts, but the service was still woefully slow and not very enthusiastic. The pizza (when it eventually came) was lukewarm and not very well cooked...not very authentic either as it had mounds of cheese on the top. The ice cream was frozen solid and seemed... More

Visited this restaurant for lunch on Friday after we saw a guy holding a placard advertising it, we would not have known this place existed despite visiting Lincoln quite regularly. Food was excellent staff very attentive and will be visiting again.Wine is a little on the expensive side but with various deals on food available it still offers excellent value... More

Lunch here yesterday on a day out in Lincoln . The food was much better than we expected , neither of us eat meat so we tend to default to Italian or Indian restaurants and keep our fingers crossed! We need not have worried here , we both had different pasta dishes with Italian bread and a house salad .... More

Nice reception, offered seating, drinks and food order prompt response. Food arrived in good time on warm plates with pleasant service. Good selection of sweets. Disappointed at the non availability of specialty teas. Good experience in nice location with costs at very reasonable prices. Would definitely visit again.

As we couldn't decide what to eat, we ordered a selection of starters. The food was fantastic which considering my husband was trained by an Italian chef is a high accolade. Said our waiter was very attentive and when the restaurant has finished the lunch time rush, he spent a little time having a chat which was lovely and not... More
