Due to lack of good places yo eat on Thanet I am drawn back to places I should never return. The last visit was a dried up, over cooked mixed grill....sorry...but I won't be back. Running out of good, trustable restaurants here. Which is highly frustrating when you're a foodie. All on all bad quality food and over priced. ☹

Had such a lovely family meal. Such good service from all staff especially the young girl with short ginger cropped hair. Didn't know her name but her customer service skills were amazing. Remembered 5 peoples orders even with modifications. Food came really quickly, and was delicious. I didn't personally have a desert but had to try my mums ice cream... More

Visited with friends and really enjoyed the experience. The restaurant is located high above the harbour and has a good feel. Food was fairly pricey but enjoyable and the service was efficient and friendly. Drinks are also expensive but were of good quality. Certainly a place to recommend.

I have been in this place with my girlfriend a couple of days ago, and if I have to be honest this place is really nice. Place overlooking the sea and the rustic character but at the same time elegant, bringing back those who are the typical Italian characters. The staff is composed of competent persons of the trade, who,... More

We had a lovely meal here this week while staying locally. The service was very good and the food was very good too. Our 2 year old son didn't like what we'd ordered for him and they changed it immediately and never charged us for it. There is an Italian ice cream selection and some Italian pastries which were sampled... More

As ever friendly staff great food served without a long wait. Children friendly. Now the weather is warmer they let people eat outside with lovely views of the harbour and the English channel. They have a week day lunchtime special from 12 until 2.30 which is great value. As ever with Italian restaurants children are always made very welcome.

Been here a couple of times. Very nice food and all cooked fresh. The staff are really nice and helpful. A true Italian restaurant in Ramsgate that's excellent for food and drink. Always come here for special occasions. Book in advance as they get busy.
