Five stars for great value Italian home-cooking. No wonder it is often difficult to get a reservation at this busy little place. We were a family group of seven and the table service was excellent.

Visited and had three delicious courses of Italian food. 2 x 3 courses with a 2 wines and beers came in at about £65. They have a very tempting specials menu, which looked great. The Tiramisu alone is worth visiting for! The waiting staff were attentive, but the chefs were a bit off-putting at the beginning of the evening; before... More

Lovely evening spent at this restaurant. Great food, all home cooked, lovely staff although they did spend a lot of time answering the phone! Wine list a little limited but the house trebbiano was very nice. The affogato was the only downside - I prefer mine with hot espresso not cold. Overall very very nice!

Friends suggested this place that I had walked past many times so we came for lunch. It is normally essential to make a booking because it is very small. It seems to be genuine Italian and quite unpretentious, but the food is really good. I chose a pizza from the daily specials board and was not disappointed. The topping was... More

Have been visiting this small restaurant twice a year for many years whilst visiting Cardiff for concerts. Still the best place to eat for pizzas and pasta right in the city centre. We always book 2 months in advance not to be disappointed.

We visited this restaurant on a trip to see our grandchildren. We had visited once before and knew from other friends that it remained a popular place to eat. The unpretentious exterior and interior belie the food quality. Between us we had a mixture of pizzas and pastas and the meal was fantastic and not expensive. I do not know... More

Don't really need to say much more. Great food and wine - the highlight of our 2 days in the city. Just wish we lived closer.
