Had a superb Christmas meal with colleagues a couple of weeks ago. Authentic and tasty and great service. Much better quality of service and food than you'd expect from the size of the place. Would definitely recommend and will come again

Been told to go to this place by so many people. I came to the restaurant on the 3rd Dec, greeted by a happy and smiley waiter who seated us to our table. Loads of choice of food and alcohol! I had a meat feast pizza, which you could tell was 100% home made and fresh with so much taste!... More

I was not impressed with the 'cafe' look when I first walked in but it ended up being quite romantic due to the ambience. The food was absolutely amazing and there was plenty of it. Highly recommended

Went for my first time tonight with a friend and we were not disappointed. I had heard there was a great Italian restaurant in swadlincote that did fab food and it's true. It is a hidden little gem. Great food, reasonably priced and friendly service would strongly recommend and def be going back.
