“A lovely Mother's Day meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2012

Would have been a full marks if hadn't had to send salmon back for more cooking, but everything else was excellent. Drinks on the house were brought as an apology which was very kind but if we'd been offered them we'd have refused as I was driving and my wife had a full large glass of wine in front of her.
Will certainly return to try more of their menu.

“Excellent gem of a find!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2012

We had the most ideal evening. Romantic, quiet yet looked after with amazing food and service.

The food is one of the best restaurants (never mind just Italians) we have had. Brilliant service also made it a really nice evening.

Definitely recommended, but book in advance as this is a little gem of a find near Torquay!

“Great food & service..”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2012

We visited on a quiet Monday evening in February.

We were given a warm welcome on arrival and a choice of seating.
There were a range of specials on offer in addition to the menu and the wine list offered the standard range of Italian options at reasonable prices.
We ordered bruschetta and risotto to start, folllowed by veal and lasagna respectively.

The food was fresh and full of flavour - it was well presented and had a certain rustic, wholesome charm.
Our white wine choice was suitably chilled and complimented the food nicely.

The service was attentive and courteous, with the chef also taking the time to meet with us and confirm that we were happy with our meals.

All in all, a very enjoyable evening and would certainly visit again when we are in Torquay.
