This restaurant is a lovely, cosy restaurant that offers great food . The family that own it could not be more friendly and they politely showed us when we arrived to a lovely part of the restaurant where we enjoyed proper Italian food. The room we were in was an Italian based room and couldn't have reminded you more of... More

This restaurant is by far the best Italian in the Lake District. As you walk in, you feel as if you have walked into a little bistro on the Rome promenade. Authentic food and authentic staff there to treat you like royalty... So good we booked to go for the next three nights off the cuff. Highly recommend.
