This is no way near the best at anything.? Food .? This is not Italian or a region off Italy.this is a mixed mash off sad skills or no skills .the menu is nothing and when you get into it .starters. croquet fish cake .Sad.80% potato.15%fish.crumbs and seasoning. How it was presented. No flair..the pate .ground beef ,chopped chicken livers no real seasoning lacking flavour. Baby chicken mains wow over cooked ,dry .duck breast fat under sealed .then not rested after cooking. So became tough. Sauce for duck.sad but frozen fruit wine and seasoning it ain't hard. Desserts well shame they don't keep it simple and with skill and passion you could have fun.

Really sorry to disagree with you but we must say something...... We never said we are the best at everything but we can definitely say we are 100% italians and dedicated to our job in a very passionate way, always trying to please our customers.... Unfortunately It's not always possible like in your case but rest assured that our cuisine is very authentic, our ingredients are fresh and of high quality.... Shame you could not express your disappointment on that evening and let us know then......we do love what we do and we do have fun doing it.... Pleasing our customers is our main objective, shame it didn't work for you.
Kind regards!
Arrivederci!

This is by far the best Italian in Canterbury, well worth a visit. Great menu and very well presented food supported by excellent service. It’s tucked away but don’t let that put you off. We will now be regulars!
