The food was delicious and the chef was only too happy to adapt the menu to suit personal preferences. Delicious wine and excellent coffee as well. The waiter was an absolute delight. Just wish we lived nearer...

Food is delicious, wines are really great too! The staff are really helpful, it's a lovely family business. Perfect place for a chilled dinner with company.

If in Falmouth please take time to eat at this lovely Italian restaurant.
Family owned and run the food and welcome was excellent. We had the pleasure of eating here on more than one occasion during our stay.
There are limited seats available as it is a small restaurant. All the food is home cooked and extremely testy.
What a pleasure it was to dine here.

This little gem is a true taste of Italy in Cornwall. It is family-owned and the Italian chef is exceptional. The staff (family) are friendly, efficient and knowledgeable, and the welcome is always warm. Specials often include fish (I highly recommend the seared tuna steak and the swordfish) while both the pasta and pizza dishes are sumptuous. The homemade ice cream is the piece de resistance - to leave without trying it would be a sin...

Visited on 30th August with hubby, daughter and daughter's boyfriend to mark last night of hols. Starters: Arancini with Cornish Brie - delicious; baby calamari lightly coated in polenta and deep fried- nicest I've ever had; bruschetta loaded with mushrooms and other yummy things- gorgeous. Mains: homemade penne with chunks of fresh tuna and cherry tomatoes (extra garlic and fresh chilli added on request) amazing. Never had home made penne before and it was so good. Courgette and sundried tomato risotto declared perfect by hubby (who is most particular about risotto); the boyfriend had the homemade penne but with meatballs - loads of them but bite sized not golf balls; daughter had pizza- also delicious. Bottle of Red recommended by most attentive waiter. Finished up with tiramisu, lemon tart and a grappa.
Family business, relaxed and welcoming. Totally recommend but do reserve because it's popular.
