If you are looking a for truly authentic, welcoming and deliciously Italian dining experience, no other restaurant in Manchester comes close. When an owner has this much passion about what they do it resonates in the dishes, experience and ambience. And you can't beat this team for friendly and knowledgeable service. Thank you for another wonderful evening. Those sardines, though...... More

We had the gnocchi, goats cheese and sea bream - which were all fantastic. The service was excellent and there's a really nice atmosphere in the place. The wine list is excellent too. Everything is high quality and the prices are reasonable. I would definitely recommend it.

Returned to this gem after a few months and wish we hadn't left it so long. The fish is always a treat, on this occasion seafood linguine and sirloin steak (expertly cooked). Cracking starters too. Lovely atmosphere and staff. Independent places like this are the essence of what Didsbury should be about in my opinion.

Service appalling. Didn't get my main course until 10:15 despite booking my table for 8:30 and it wasn't worth waiting for. I could have made it better myself. Small portion of the special sea bass. Steak over done and they tried to disguise it by smothering with a very average sauce. If you have a small menu and wine list... More

Okay good, but nothing more than that. You won't go wrong, but don't expect anything memorable. Could do with a decorate as well.

First time here but been to many of the other restaurants nearby. Small menu and wine list which is normally fine however they had run out of both our first and second choice red wines and our first choice white wine! When there are only three reds and two whites on the main list this is barely competent. This was... More

8pm on a Saturday night. Specials were basically all 'finished'. Sea bass and bream were both on the chalk board but sold out. One of us ordered the special mussels starter only to be told 10 mins later that there weren't any mussels. Very limited wine list, which is ok but.... Ordered a bottle of Valpolicella, sold out. Ordered a... More

We had a fantastic meal here. The food, drink and staff were fantastic. The steak was so good my partner ordered it twice! We will definitely be back soon. The seafood is really special. Thanks for a lovely date night! 🤗

Superb food, served by pleasant staff. Lovely menu & specials. There were 4 of us, we were all delighted with our choices and look forward to returning. Very good value for money considering the high standard. A really nice place to spend an evening. Comfy, welcoming, delicious.

Came here on Saturday with my friend & her husband and it was fabulous. We weren't rushed in any way, so it felt like a real Italian dining experience. The bread & olives as an appetiser are fabulous as they don't fill you up too much. I had a special of seafood linguine which was delicious, but highly recommend the... More
