The food was amazing and brilliant value ,wasn't sure what to have so the lovely waiter advised a pizza & pasta dish with side plates so we could share ! The pinot blush was on point and the best I've ever had ... Can't wait for next time we've filled our loyalty card and looking forward to a bottle of white on the house

Went here for the first time the other night, despite having lived in Poole all my life! I drive past it most nights on my way home from work, so decided to give it a go for a change. So pleased I did as the food was gorgeous (and reasonably priced) and the staff were charming! Will certainly be return and would recommend to others. Only thing I would suggest is to dim down the main lighting a bit more during the evening to create a bit more ambiance. There there were candles on the tables, and softer wall lights - however I felt the main spotlights were too bright which prevented the candles from creating a warm & more intimate atmosphere.

An old-style typical Italian family restaurant. Very welcoming, friendly staff and a warm, comfortable ambiance. A very varied menu including a selection of alternative dishes to the usual pizza and pasta (both of which are very good) and vegetarian options. The service was excellent, food delicious and we would highly recommend this restaurant.

Super little gem of a restaurant in Branksome, we eat here quite a lot and have never had a poor meal yet, you get a stamp on a loyalty card each visit and then a free bottle of wine when you have three stamps and the fillet steaks are awesome.

We had a table of four and we all said how good all the courses were from the excellent salmon starter I had to the perfectly cooked steak I also had, we all said we would be returning to sample the delicassies again.

Quick, friendly and attentive service, food was extremely good (well prepared and tasty) and we were left to enjoy our evening without being rushed or made to feel uncomfortable. Overall a lovely evening which will ensure we book again.
