I ate here for the first time last night after living in Swansea for 40 plus years and I wonder why on earth I waited so long! 4 of us had a great meal in a lovely atmosphere with friendly and helpful staff. I will certainly be back and judging by comments made by other tables that is a common... More

Have dined here several times now and what a superb little place. The food is freshly cooked to order and is delicious and service is second to none. With a warm friendly atmosphere and very accommodating chef this place is a must try.

In previous reviews people have complained about the absence of pizza. I however sought this as an positive as if pizza was on the menu i may not indulged in such tasty pasta (probably the best i have ever had). The prices were reasonable and the service was superb. I enjoyed the atmosphere of the place it was very homely,... More

Great food, fantastic service, really great value, couldn't recommend highly enough. We didn't book in advance, and weren't sure whether they have a table, but we were made very welcome

Me and my wife went there for a meal, the service was absolutely brilliant. We were seated quickly and friendly by a lovely lady waiter who was so polite. The range of food was so good it was hard to decide.The waiter throughout the whole night was really friendly. I would definitely return as it so nice and reasonably priced.... More

Pleasant food and staff. Tables maybe a bit small so felt cramped at times when 4 of us were served our meals. Also the table behind was too close so their conversation made it difficult for me to hear my friends. Good selection of vegetables served with our chicken dish though not very Italian. Not perhaps the most amazing food,... More

Had my birthday meal here and it was a great success. Food was very good and so was the service. It is a cosy restaurant which is well presented. Would thoroughly recommend it.

Small family run restaurant which, from the prawn cocktail to the tiramisu was a hark back to the 1970's, I expected to have Abba singing in the background. Busy - so they must be doing something right - and cramped, the two staff were constantly flitting back and forth, too busy to catch their eye with a request. That said... More
