Have been to this restaurant before but did not realise there was a change of owners, friendly greeting from front of house and new Polish waiter, disappointing starter of Focaccia bread topped with mozzarella I think it was a pancake mix cooked in a pan!...More

Last night we had a fantastic birthday dinner for my Father-in-Law's 81st birthday. Oliver and his team really looked after us really well. The food and drinks were excellent. There is a comprehensive menu and specials board. For a Wednesday evening the restaurant was busy,...More

We had a wonderful meal tonight. They created a Penne a la Norma at our request (not on menu) and all other choices were excellent. Service was superb, prices are extremely reasonable. There are very few really authentic Italian restaurants anywhere in the UK. This...More

There are a lot of Italian restaurants in Exeter, but this is the only one whose food made me feel like I was back in Italy. All the food we had was delicious, some traditional Italian favourites, but also some new and lovely flavours.
