Our service was impressive and involved Chef Ivan himself who left his kitchen to discuss our options and preferences. We sampled an astonishing range of Italian and Sardinian mezze platters which were fresh, colourful and delicious. I particularly enjoyed the wild boar pie/pasty, stew and pizza. The restaurant was comfortable and atmospheric and the wine selection delightful. If I absolutely... More

This is one of the best Italian restaurants on the Island, just up the road in the Old Quarter of town. Great service and really delicious food. Ivan is such a good host and an even better chef, well recommended.

Not much to rave about in terms of the location or decor .. but if good pizzas with an unpretentious, reasonably priced wine list are what you're looking for you won't go far wrong. A two person operation on the night we went.. owner/ chef working hard and coping well with our large group, and an attentive and friendly waitress.... More

A lovely menu featuring pizzas and pasta, all with a wide range of fresh ingredients. Plenty of choice for vegetarians, not just the traditional margarita. An unusual salad featuring courgette added to the flavours......but actually, it was hard to finish everything....sadly ( and unusually for me ) no room for dessert! I ll certainly be going back!!!

A last minute decision to call in with a colleague on a Saturday night, glad we did. Welcomed and seated straight away in this stylish restaurant, there was instantly a nice atmosphere. The order was taken by the owner who is clearly passionate about his menu, I had the game stew, lovely flavours, fantastic. My colleague had the Calzone pizza,... More

This is a lovely rustic feel restaurant tucked away in Mill Street. You can have full or half size pizza's cooked fresh with a lovely crispy thin base. On the table when you arrive are slices of crusty bread with a choice of dips. Really gets your taste buds ready !

This truly is a wonderful haven with fine Italian food & service from Sardinian chef/proprietor & his happy team. Guernsey is now in throes of the annual tennerfest menu for next 5 weeks or so where restaurants are encouraged to be menu inventive & charge reasonable prices. This is £12.50 for two courses & £15.00 for three. I chose the... More

Loved it here - the atmosphere was so relaxing & the food was also delicious! It's so nice to see an Italian restaurant put a 'vegan pizza' on their menu that is loaded with simple tasty seasoned vegetables! 🍴 The staff also seemed very aware of what items were vegan/which were not which was I appreciate very much! 💜

We went for the Tennerfest menu but ended up trying the main menu. I had one of the nicest fish soups I've ever had, followed by a rich game stew that was really tasty. The others all had other choices and thoroughly enjoyed theirs as well. A lovely Sicilian red wine to wash it down was very reasonable. My Zabaglione... More

The wine list is dominated by wine from the region and represents exceedingly good value for money.This is a restaurant to savour, as are the flavours that come from the food.
