Very welcoming restaurant - lovely staff and great food with a pleasant ambience. Down a bit of a backstreet but all in all a very nice location. Enough room between the tables to allow good conversation.

A really wonderful evening to celebrate a 70th birthday. Amazing food and service and such friendly staff. We felt like part of a big Italian family. Very popular restaurant and an absolute Cambridge gem.

What a lovely place, nice spot next to the river, excellent attentive staff and a varied menu, swordfish is a must if it's on the menu. Will definitely revisit in the future.

From the minute you arrive you are made to feel welcome and at home. The staff are friendly and attentive. Food is authentic Italian and of a fantastic quality. I can't recommend this restaurant highly enough. Lovely location overlooking the river Cam.
