Restaurant was so good that we had to go back for a second night. Food was excellent and staff very attentive! If in the City of Wells I would recommend eating here - you will not regret it!

Very nice restaurant, staff are friendly and professional, a little slow at times but the food makes up for it, one of our favourite places. The reason for not giving five stars, it is a bit pricy.

We dropped in on a Sept Wednesday evening without a reservation. We were immediately warmly welcomed and shown to a nice round table. The place had a warm, buzzy feeling and the smells, sorry, aromas, got us looking at the menu. We quickly got our drinks, including Moretti beer (so much nicer than Peroni) and decent glasses of wine. We ordered olives and a basket of bread rather than normal starters, and they were ideal till we got our mains. We all had versions of pasta, and my Spaghetti dal mare was really excellent. Very filling, and sadly left no space for puds. For 4 drinks, the olives/breads and 4 mains came to £80. We will be back, so leave space for us please,

A magical setting, on the cathedral green. We chose to sit outside on the picnic bench style tables. We had really superb meals (we went back because it was so good) both the pasta and pizza very good. They really understand the needs of a coeliac!

Staying at The Swan across the road made this a first choice for eating out. Not disappointed. We all had something different and all enjoyed what we had. My prawn and crab linguini was excellent. No room for puddings but expect they are just as good.
