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 with my partner for a dinner! After a look at the extensive menu I chose the lamb on the special Board and my partner took a fillet Rossini! Presentation of the dishes was super and the lamb was simply delicious and a huge portion aswell! my partner also was so impressed by the sauce of his rossini and... More

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.

I've been here a couple of times, both with family / friends and as part of a large group (15+ people). The staff are always very polite and attentive. The decor is a little quirky, but all adds to the atmosphere. I've never had a bad meal from here and would definitely recommend.

On an initial visit, i felt the atmosphere to be a bit "chilly", but since then it has become one of my favourite Italian restaurants. I didn't like the tiled floor and wanted soft carpet (typical English comfort), but having been to Italy and Spain etc., i finally got it... it was totally authentic, as was the food! Regarding the... More

Good enough Italian of which Swindon has many. Its middle of the road establishment imo and you are unlikely to be disappointed if not thrilled.
