Lovely little restaurant in the middle of town. Authentic feel having spoken to the chef and waiter. Sea bass was fantastic and the lemon cheese cake was strong in flavour and smooth in texture with the mascarpone really standing out.The house red and white, we're of a decent standard, and thankfully the cream was floating on the Irish coffee. Limoncehllo shots came with the bill, so we had to get two more, Fantastic place, great feel, going back at the start of 2016 for a friends birthday.

Having not long moved to the Malmesbury area this place has been on our radar for a little while and it did not disappoint.

Menu was varied with the staff both pleasant and attentive. The atmosphere was great too and whilst it was a Saturday so you would expect this they nevertheless knew how to host us.

Service was good in terms of timings between ordering and food arriving and between courses and the food was tasty and as described.

Overall a really nice evening and we will be going back for sure.

We have eaten here previously and loved the food so much, we returned with some elderly friends for lunch.

The Christmas Menu looked wonderful but our elderly guest's decided to have the food from the main menu.

After we had placed our food order's, we were sat drinking and chatting. The elderly gentleman in our party went to the bathroom but sadly fell over before he got there! He was helped back to his seat by two waiters; bleeding badly from a cut to his eye. It was a nasty injury and the Manager called an ambulance before we had a chance to ask. Wonderful! A member of the staff stood outside in the rain waiting to guide the ambulance to the door. During the whole situation the staff continued to serve the other customers and continued to support us.

The fall was a fluke accident and by no way caused by anything at the restaurant. Just one of those things sadly. We can't praise the staff for their calmness and support enough! They were amazing! The service continued to other customers and not affected by our situation, purley due to the amazing staff!

Obviously, as we left rapidly by ambulance, we didn't get to eat! Our elderly friend was bitterly disappointedehe didn't get to try the fabulous food, so we're planning a return visit soon!

Thank you to all the staff for their kindness and support...a great team!

First time we have been here but really enjoyed the meal. Very tasty food, excellent friendly service & a good atmosphere. The bill for the 4 of us was reasonable, no actually I should say it was very good value considering the quality of the food. The menu has a wide selection so should be something for everyone's taste & there is a good choice of wines. Will we be going back? Definitely.

Very polite service, quick without being rushed. Good menu selection, very reasonably priced. Easy to drop in for an expensive pizza or alternatively go for a special wine with a good wine list.
