We had a lovely waitress, but the food was distinctly average and the ambiance was loud and hot.

Booked a table but it was a quiet (and wet!) Tuesday night so not busy. Nevertheless a pleasant atmosphere and a warm welcome. A large serving of braesaola carpaccio and a tasty stuffed pepper got us off to a good start and the fish for main course was well presented and cooked just right and very tasty. The bottle of Gavi white was very good value.
Overall a pleasant meal and a nice, friendly place with farewell limoncello on the house to see us on our way.

The issue here was we were totally late on getting seated and served which ruined our plans for the evening .

Food was tasty , they compensated with dessert but not really the point

Food was tasty and the service was prompt and friendly. The restaurant is well placed near the centre of Bath. It's a bit pricy but similar to other restaurants in the area.

The food is fair, nothing extraordinary and quite basic tastes as there is far too much cheese in the dish (we took a pizza and melanza parmigiana where it was difficult to find an eggplant) the pizza dough is good.

First impressions are it’s dated and at the time we arrived was full of elderly clientele.......don’t judge a book by its cover.

Amazing food, some of the best Italian food I’ve had in the uk. Fantastic, friendly, attentive and informative staff. Reasonably priced.

A must if you want quality Italian food and service.

This was such a good find!! exactly what we were looking for, a nice, casual restaurant with a wonderful atmosphere. The staff were great and happy, made such a good dining experience. The food was delightful and they cater to dietary requirements which also shows how fresh the food is made. The portion sizes are great. Honestly had such a good dinner - we booked to go back the next evening! Thanks for a great dining experience

Perfect meal out, spoilt for choice on the menu, and the ambiance was wonderful and very much enhanced by the opera singing waiter who was a very talented and also funny man.

Fabulous options even if you have dairy free/ gluten free requirements (I had a choice of about 10 main courses as they do gluten free pasta). They are looking into gluten free bread for the future.

THERE WERE FAR TOO MANY TABLES PACKED INTO THE AREA WHERE WE WERE SEATED WHICH MEANT THAT WE WERE UNABLE TO HOLD A PRIVATE CONVERSATION & WERE FORCED TO LISTEN TO THE CONVERSATION OF THE TWO NEIGHBOURING TABLES.POSSIBLY THE RESTAURANT IS A VICTIM OF ITS OWN SUCCESS ?
THE QUALITY OF THE FOOD WAS GOOD BUT PORTIONS WERE VERY MEASURED-I WOULD GO AS FAR AS SAYING "MEAN"IN PARTICULAR THE SOUP WHICH WAS LITERALLY A FEW SPOONFULS.
MY WIFE CHOSE THE SPICED CHICKEN BREAST AGAIN THE TASTE WAS EXCELLENT BUT THE QUANTITY WAS POOR AND HALF OF THE PORTION WAS CHICKEN WING NOT BREAST.
WE SHALL NOT BE RETURNING AND WE BOTH CONSIDER THE RESTAURANT TO BE EXPENSIVE AND RATHER POOR VALUE FOR MONEY.WE HAVE EATEN MEALS DELIVERING SIMILAR QUALITY IN OTHER CENTRAL BATH RESTAURANTS WHICH WERE MUCH LESS EXPENSIVE,WITH MORE GENEROUS PORTIONS AND WITH A FAR NICER ABMBIENCE.
