Probably the best restaurant in Maidstone. Very nice food and they don't overfill the restaurant. We're repeat customers and always recommend.

Traditional Southern Italian Restaurant offering authentic Italian food, with specifically sourced Italian ingredients.Pasta, pizza, seafood, meat (including veal and our famous meatballs), desserts and coffee all available to eat in or take away.
