Well, the place might have had some glorious days at some point but this is over. The large dinning room needs a good refurbishment. This looks more like a caf dining room than like a nice Cowes restaurant. The extra room where we were offered a table is as welcoming as a dentist waiting room, a disgrace for a restaurant.What...

Went here for tea tonight. Was OK - sort of what you expect from an Italian restaurant.... was busy so can only mean good things. Food was OK, came out quickly, could do with more meat in the dishes, not much chicken or mushroom in my spaghetti � would probably pass on another visit now I've been once. worth a... More

Went here on the 23/09/2016 with a party of eight, disappointed with the service and the food was average. When the puddings came we complained the creme brûlée was disgusting, no apology but they did take it off the bill along with a very poor tiramisu.

Eight of us ate here last night. The staff were very pleasant. I had pizza for my main. Dry and hardly any topping. My friends meal came after most of us had finished eating so she ate on her own really. I ordered Tirimasu which was smothered in amaretto and the texture was like a lump of over whipped cream....

Sailed over to Cowes from Portsmouth and after a bad crossing hoped for a lovely Italian meal. The prices were high, which I don't mind paying if the food is good. The price of the starters were very steep. There were 6 in our party, we all had mains, 2 bottles of wine and 3 desserts and it was well... More

We visited the restaurant for a family meal out one evening. Given all the great reviews and recommendations I have to say that it was a little bog standard and basic. Disappointing really... Staff were friendly enough but food was nothing to write home about, and expensive for what it was. Pasta was too thick and pizza scrimped on the... More

Dined here on a recent visit to Cowes. We both had Pizza, which has nice but base was slightly dry. Staff were friendly and service was ok. Decor is slightly dated and restaurant did have a retro feel to it.

We popped in here for a quick lunch knowing nothing about the restaurant and were pleasantly surprised!! The service was amazing and they even cooked me something not on the menu when I asked!! Who could ask for more! A great lunch or relaxed dinner venue!

Thank helenkirsten
