“Highly Enjoyable Italian Ambiance & Food”

In an old town high street within yards of the site where there were all manner of gruesome goings-on in the late eighteenth century following the unsuccessful insurrection by the Duke of Monmouth, we found an impressive Italian restaurant. In terms of the number of tables and and the quality of the food available in what at first appearance seems to be a town down on its luck, this was an impressive establishment. 

With the normal range of food on offer that might be expected in such a place, from traditional starters through antipasti and expected main courses including different pizzas, we enjoyed a bruschetta pomodoro and tomato and mozzarella salad as starters followed by dishes of spaghetti carbonara and a large prawn and broccoli linguini. With additional bread, a wine and soft drink and a wonderful macchiato doppia of Drury coffee we were pleased to pay £40 excluding gratuities. 

Easy to find , polite and attentive staff and good food, we were glad we didn't miss this on our visit to Shepton Mallet. Well recommended. 

END.

Called in on a Wednesday evening. It was very busy which was great. Shepton was in desperate need of another decent restaurant so am pleased it is working for them. Good choice of menu, friendly attentive staff but not over the top. All food was really hot and served with a nice side dish of veg and potatoes.

I was excited about going here because of the excellent reviews, but felt a bit disappointed. First impressions: clean, spacious, modern and friendly staff. But not a traditional warm italian atmosphere, but that is ok modern is fine BUT the food and presentation was average. Which is a shame. I'd go back with friends for a quick pizza. Can't go wrong with pizza......quick service too...

I recently attended a double birthday celebration here with seven family members. The food and service was great .Our waiter couldn't do enough for us and was very attentive but not obtrusive. We had a varied selection of food between us and it all arrived piping hot . I had provided a cake and that was served promptly at the end of our meal by the waiter who also helped us sing happy birthday!! Altogether a very good evening.

We were recommended this restaurant by the owners of Longbridge House the B&B we stayed at in Shepton Mallet. We were not disappointed. The food was so tasty, amazing and very big portions. We also enjoyed the Lemonchellos a lot as our after dinner treat. The waitresses were really friendly and not intrusive and gave us a good service. We would totally recommend this restaurant. Thanks for a great night!
