Visit the restaurant with some friends. The food was good but not for the quality expected for Italian and for the price to pay. No baby changing facilities though.

The restaurant was too cramped with too many tables. Service was very slow and in the end we had to ask someone to come and take the order. The food was very overpriced for what tasted like pasta with a jar of unseasoned tomato paste...More

Went for a quick meal for two on a weekday evening. Good value for money, good service with a reasonable choice of food. Pleasant surroundings. Booked but probably no need.

Proper Italian pizza, proper Italian wine, good service and a lovely small terrace at the front. If you choose the time right in the summer, you can see a good sunset. My favourite restaurant in Jesmond.
