Enjoyed Sunday family dinner here. Food was very fresh and tastefull and the service super kind. Also the prices are very reasonable; 35 pounds each for 2-3 courses and wine. Would come back!

Lovely small Italian restaurant, at the Crescent/Circus end of Bath. Really good food, great service and nice friendly atmosphere. Was recommended by our Airbnb host and definitely worth tracking down. Probably worth booking if you don't want to miss out,
