We walked in without a reservation early Saturday night and managed to get a table, it was very busy. What a nice, almost old school atmosphere, great staff and the food and wine were both excellent. Make sure you book well in advance though....

This restaurant was recommended to me as a possible alternative to the Jamie Oliver's Italian restaurant in Birmingham. As Gold Card Members we have been going to Jamie's Italian for the 18 months, but I doubt that I will ever go there again after visiting this restaurant. Simply put this restaurant is in a different league, the food, the ambience... More

Second time and still good Italian food and helpful staff. This time music wasn't so loud, so 5 from 5. :-)

This is a charming restaurant with good quality food, good service, good wine list and a lovely atmosphere, definitely my favourite restaurant in the Jewellery Quarter and well worth a visit - a nice venue in the summer to sit outside with a Pinot Grigio and watch the world go by.

This was our first visit to this restaurant and it certainly won't be our last - we were recommend to go here after doing a bit of business in the jewellery quarter and we were not disappointed. Although we hadn't booked we were shown to a very nice table close to the window and presented with the very extensive menu... More

Fancied Italian; 'some meaty pasta' was my exact quote!! Chicken livers in masala andncreammtomstart set me up nicely! Rigatoni - with peppers and spicy sausage- Arrabiata was fab-u-lous dahling!! My husband has pan fried Seabass with spaghettti alioli was simply beautiful. Friendly staff, lovely atmosphere. A great restaurant all round.

Thank Paul H
