This was an unexpected treat and a very enjoyable evening, except for the weather. The meal was very well presented and the fish cannelloni was excellent. We also had a pudding and there was a long list of home made Italian delicacies available. The service was very attentive and we met the chef at the end. We will be back!

A special occasion meal and there were 14 of us on a busy saturday night. Weeny hiccup about a missing pint but soon remedied. Catering for such a large group on a busy night is no mean feat, however all food arrived promptly and was delicious and piping hot. Not the cheapest place to eat and can be noisy when... More

I went here with family on a busy Friday evening. The welcome was extremely friendly and the service throughout was good. I had scallops which were nice, my sister had them also however found them a little gritty. I had white fish cannelloni which was absolutely delicious. One of the party had a meat cannelloni which she didn't enjoy. The... More

Went with family and we had a variety of dishes. The sardines were nothing special and lacked seasoning, the scallops were gritty. The mains - monkfish and fish lasagne were enjoyed. I had the misfortune of having meat cannelloni - i swear it was just like a cheap microwave meal, hideous. The desserts were just about average. The location is... More

Our dinner last Friday was as good as it gets and as usual out favourite Italian restaurant scores 10/10. Apperatives in the lobby then starters of Scallops in Pernod & Cozze Napoli, Steak and Veal (Saltimbocca) for mains, Panne Cotta and Crespella (crepe stuffed with ice cream and raspberries) for desert and a half carafe of house Merlot. All delightfully... More

Turned up in the rain without having booked. Very friendly welcome, took our coats, sat us down comfortably with drinks and showed us the enticing lunch menu. The food was excellent, the service was perfect without unnecessary interruptions and left just the right time between courses for us to chat with the Bristol student granddaughter we were treating. The experience... More

Myself and my partner found this gem on a day out in Clevedon. The staff were attentive, and the food was beautiful. It was lovely to meet the chef and tell him how impressed we were after the meal. Will definitely return!
