One of our favourite Italian eateries in the town, never disappointed to date although they do charge you 50p for using a DEBIT or credit card , so I pay cash! Food is delicious although to be fair we usually have pizza, salad and wine but ALL the food that comes over the servery looks delicious and is always piping... More

We were greeted by a charming Italian waitress who was exceptionally helpful. She organised a variation on the menu for my husband and asked the chef about the provenance of the pasta for me. The menu had choices I was unfamiliar with which is always nice. It was fun to watch the pizza dough being tossed in the kitchen. We... More

Popped in for lunch. 3 course for £10.95. 2 starters were stuffed mushrooms and crostini with tomato and mozzarella and both were very good. Mains were an American baguette and penne arribiata, the baguette was nice and the penne was excellent. Had ice cream and caramel shortcake to finish. Overall a great lunch and very reasonable, will be back as... More

We went for our anniversary meal and took our 2 year old son. We visited early (5pm) and there was plenty of space. We both chose a pasta dish and bruschetta while our little boy shared ours and had some chips. It was absolutely delicious! Would definitely recommend. Can't wait to go again when we can share a bottle of... More

Visited here to celebrate our sons engagement and once again we were not disappointed. I had the stuffed mushrooms wonderful, my daughter and future daughter in law both had mussels as starters which could have been a main course there were so many. The mains were various pastas which were all superb and the sea bass fillets were cooked to... More

Would recommend this lovely Italian restaurant to anyone. Two course lunch very reasonably priced with ample choice. Food was authentic and the service attentive but not intrusive.

When visiting Stirling recently I was unsure where to eat and found this restaurant, in a fairly good, central location. I had lasagne which was O.K., nothing too special. I also ordered some bread and found it be very thick, was not particularly appealing! Not a huge lover of bread anyway but this was particularly solid. Whilst not having a... More

Without exception everything we ate was freshly cooked and tasty. Staff were very attentive and friendly. Very reasonably priced. Would definately recommend and... More
