We visited the restaurant, without a reservation on 20th April. Staff were so helpful and friendly. We had a little wait for a table, but the wait was worth it. The menu is varied and catered for all tastes, excellent value for money, for such high quality amazing food. The atmosphere was lovely and chilled.

The restaurant is very lively, with great decor (and very good value happy hour), and friendly staff. However, the pizza was very average (tasted like something from a takeaway chain rather than a good quality Italian restaurant).

It is 2.5 years since we last came here and it hasn't changed much. The happy hour 5.30 to 7pm is brilliant and meant our family of 5 could eat and drink for £60. Bargain.

We ate here on our last night in Kendal. Good food, great atmosphere and lovely staff who were particularly friendly to our daughter who loved the attention (and food!).

The title says is all really. My boyfriend ordered the chilli beef, which was tough and had no flavour. We both ordered pasta dishes for our main courses. The onions in our dishes weren't cooked and both sauces were very watery.

We had to wait for a table but we were shown to the bar and the barman was very friendly. The table only took 5 minutes and we were seated. The food was lovely, and really good value. Service was a little slow, but the restaurant had a good atmosphere.

We had pre-arranged a meal for aprox. 26 people and were directed to two tables with barely enough room to get in or out when the rest of the place was empty. The starters were barely warm enough when they did arrive and we had to pass everybody's meals down to each other. The mains were at best acceptable at... More

Four of us aate here and the menu selection was good. Food was well prepared. Service was poor and we had to ask to order. Attitude of some of the staff left a bit to be desired. Will look to go elsewhere in future.
