We had read the reviews for this restaurant and were looking forward to our visit. We weren't disappointed. The steak from chef's recommendations and the white chocolate cake were particular highlights and the atmosphere and service we received was superb. We really enjoyed our evening and will definitely return. Thank you very much.

All 5 of us enjoyed our food here on Good Friday. The calamari were excellent - small, soft, perfectly cooked. The linguine with scallops and asparagus were also delicious. The service was friendly and the prices were reasonable.

We called in early on Saturday evening without a booking. We were greeted at the door by a lovely man who gave us a table straight away. The table had to be vacated later as it was reserved from 8 p.m. The restaurant is small, cosy and spotlessly clean. They have an extensive menu and the food is reasonably priced.... More

Visiting Poole for the weekend and thought we would use TripAdvisor to locate a restaurant in the area, this Italian came up ! We tried to call to book in advance however it rang off the hook. We took a chance and was lucky to grab the last table for four, and boy it was really worth taking the chance.... More

What a transformation from long time Gelato parlour to fantastic bistro Italiano! Visited with friends from London and treated my parents to a night out and all were thoroughly impressed. The service was fantastic, the Barolo outstanding and a complimentary bottle of limoncello to finish our evening was very much appreciated! Go here, everything we ordered was outstanding in its...

We went to this lovely restaurant on Valentine's day for a special meal and it sure was! We went for the full works which is unusual for us. My fish allergy was not a problem. For our main course we both had a steak. I am one of those people that like my steak well done and often that means... More
