We ate here on our second night of a two day stay in Newcastle. Couldn't fault it at all. Lovely food, generous portions in a friendly and welcoming environment for an excellent price. Highly recommended.

We were recommended to come here from a local hotel. The food was really nice and the children were made to feel welcome. I really enjoyed the meal overall, however I nearly didn't go in as one of the waitresses was standing smoking in the doorway of the restaurant. If I had known she worked in the restaurant before, I... More

Came for a meal on a Friday lunchtime with 7 friends. There was a mix up with our booking but this was rectified quickly and we were shown to our table. Staff (assuming it was the manager) couldn't apologise enough for the mix up and even gave us a free bottle of wine for our trouble. Food was lovely -... More

Very disappointed with service. We have eaten at this restaurant many times but recent visit was very disappointing. We had starters which were very nice, however after waiting 45 minutes we cancelled our main course and asked for the bill. The staff apologised and said the food was ready but the chef had not led them know !!!!

The big plus was that the staff were really very friendly and couldn't have been more helpful. The atmosphere and decor very pleasant and relaxed. The food was reasonable enough although not startling. The pizzas were really tasty, one of us had the risotto and did not enjoy it atall; the puddings were not very nice. It wasn't cheap either....

We were looking for something near to Indigo Hotel and after wandering about we ended up here, just opposite the hotel. Service was very good and food was lovely. Gamberonis Al Aglio superb!

Dropped by here on a rainy evening. Apart from the waitress never having heard of San Pellegrino water (until another diner showed her the bottle), everything was perfectly fine and tasty. I woul recommend this place to anyone wanting genuine Italian food.
