What an amazing night we had. The food is so good here and the staff treat you so friendly, has a real family vibe going on. We loved it! The creme brulee was to die for…highly recommend it!

Myself and my friend had a meal here last night for my birthday celebrations, and could not fault it at all. The staff were amazing, they were very attentive and polite, and the food could not have been better. We ordered a variety of dishes and they were the best versions of each I’ve ever tried. Would recommend highly and will return.

Great location, nice atmosphere and attentive service. Authentic Italian food.

Great service and great food. My favourite Italian restaurant in Manchester. We had Dan as our waiter, he was so kind and recommended dishes according to our taste. Always come back here!
