Has the authentic feel.. for an Italian in Swindon! Service was pleasant and the food was great. A tad pricey and a bit stringent with the potatoes and vegetable but overall I would recommend

My Husband and I had a lovely meal here , the starter of whitebait was fresh , plentiful and very tasty , followed by a freshly made pizza and to finish the best tiramisu in town for sure! Great fast service I would highly recommend to all. Thank you Carlo and Sara.

Considering it was a pre booked Christmas meal the service upstairs was slow and poor. The dish of vegetables accompanying the meal was still frozen!

This is our favourite Italian restaurant to go to in Swindon. Always great food and a fantastic friendly service! We feel that there is a traditional family feel to the restaurant. Unfortunately we don't live in Swindon anymore and are unable to come as much as we would like!

Italian restaurants in the UK can be a hit-and-miss affair, and with so much chain rubbish which the Brits prefer, these places are disappearing; an Italian should be run by Italians with the food made to order and with a decent Italian wine list and a lot of fun- this covers it all- clubworldzilla is easy to please- you just...

Went here on a busy Saturday night, and it was pretty full. Staff were welcoming, and friendly throughout. Food was freshly cooked and very tasty; had lasagna which was lovely. The house white wine by the carafe is also very nice. Good value, and a fresh European feel. Would definitely return and recommend.

So, the website says they are open until 11.30pm but when we went there at 10.50pm on a Saturday night they tell us they are closed!!!!! Very disappointed as this is my hubby's favourite restaurant, guess we have to find a new favourite restaurant 😏

All I can say... Everything is great. Lasagna was fabulous. Staff is very friendly and atmosphere 100%. No regrets at all. If you are in Swindon, don't think, this is your place. I'll missed this place. I hope they open a branch in London.
