We had a perfectly satisfactory Italian lunch but it was a bit more expensive than we would have expected.

The service, ambience and food were as you would hope but nothing special and, for the price, I would have wanted better.

This is a well run restaurant and being family run makes all the difference - both in the food and the welcome you receive. You will walk past the second-rate chain establishments and reach your destination - a real restaurant! We chose the pear and gorgonzola salad and then the saltimbocca - both excellent.
We ate here a few years ago and remembered it was good then. It still is!

This is a lovely restaurant, run by a family and far far better from big chain "Italians" like Ask or Bella Italia. No comparison. This restaurant is just over Magdelen bridge out of town, but seems to be quieter as many tourists must struggle to go the extra 50 yards. Excellent menu which reminded me of happy times in Italy. The food did not disappoint and was really good, and I think good value as well. Deserts were too tempting to decline - you will thank yourself for leaving a little space for one. All in all, a lovely restaurant with helpful friendly staff - just a few yards from the hustle and bustle of Cambridge tourist attractions. Recommended.
