Four of us arrived to see if we could eat at this restaurant and were asked if we had booked even though there were plenty of empty tables! The food was only average one of us having a seafood pasta but the seafood was definitely lacking! not a lot of flavour in any of our dishes. Staff friendly.

But food lacked flavour really, I had the chicken calzone which was lacking any punch in the flavour dept. My wife had the seafood pasta dish that had hardly any seafood in... More

If one likes Italian food then you could go here. The service always comes with a smile and the staff do their utmost to make one feel welcome. They cater for children, which is a big bonus.

Visited here with my three boys (10, 5 and 4). We all enjoyed our meals and the service was friendly. The setting in Wells was also impressive

Was amused when I rang to make booking that they had to check with manager before they accepted a reservation for table for one! Never come across that anti-solo behaviour before. Thankfully manager said it was okay...... Food okay but tasted like it was prepared off site and heated up. Not a true Italian. Waiter was pleasant but large party... More

Great location in city centre, views of the palace, very busy, but they squeezed us in (just), service a bit slow due to number of customers, but more than acceptable, food choice and quality was great, staff were fantastic, helpful, friendly and welcoming

There is a reasonable selection of good food for children, adults and vegetarians. The service is very good and the food is good quality. It is a family friendly place and moderately priced.

We visited Saturday afternoon for a late lunch. The service was good and staff were attentive. The food on the other hand was very average, really nothing to write home about. We won't be rushing back.
