The food was incredibly nice, the atmosphere was fun and the staff were very nice. It was a little bit cramped as the restaurant is very small but other than that we could not fault it.

I haven’t ever given 5 stars for a review yet, but this place does not disappoint. The drinks, the food, the ambience- spot on. Absolutely chill vibes and probably the best birthday I’ve spent with my family in a restaurant. Best pistachio cakes ever. They even gave me a birthday slice of cake with a candle!

A lovely small specialist Italian restaurant tucked away in the Northern Quarter. A small menu but big on taste. Tip if you go for the sharing platter it is more than ample as a main course for 2.

What a little gem in NQ! The place is cozy and nice! The staff is lovely and very attentive! These guys love what they do! Perfect for a night out with friends! Cocktails, wines and food are superb! I had an amazing bottle of authentic Sicilian wine, le sabbie dell’etna! My friend had a limoncello bramble and it was very nice too! I recommend to try arancini, cakes and gelato! I’ll definitely come back!

This place was disgusting. We ordered the arrinchini appetizer that was ready in less than 5 minutes. Cleary it’s was microwaved then put in a deep fried for a minute. The cream sauce had a plastic texture and tasted sour and stale. Needless to say we were thankful we ended our dining experience here. Menu is bland and offers no meat ( I’m thinking they have a good hygiene problem in the fridges). Don’t waste your money.

Excellent first visit. Food was excellent but menu is limited. But maybe it changes not sure as first visit. Compact area not a very large place but good atmosphere. Wine excellent, cocktails need much improvement hence the lower score. Would we return... Yes

Service was great, the menu doesn’t have many options, it’s just pasta and arancino. It was ok but I was expecting a bit more.

Must have got them on a bad evening. The restaurant itself was lovely, fab setting. But service was some of worst I have ever experienced. The starters were nice but the mains were cold and completely unseasoned. Honestly was such a shame and I do just think they were having a bad evening :(

Lovely little hidden gem in the Northern Quarter. Tasty food and amazing service. We started with Arancino Spinach which was delicious! We then had Burrata pasta tasted amazing and it was a really decent sized portion too. Unique drinks menu with lots of choice and amazing cocktails. Overall we had a great experience and would recommend!
