The food was excellent, there was a wide choice of dishes on the menu and also flexible, e.g. they were happy to add or leave out ingredients and serve side dishes as starters. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and highly efficient, we didn't have to wait long for anything although it was fairly busy on New Year's Eve. Glad to have found this place and will definitely be back.
We had a lovely evening. Unfortunately the restaurant was quiet when we were in, which is a real shame as it is a wee gem of a place. The food was very good. The chef treated us to an amazing Italian sweet dough treat and the waiter brought us limoncello liqueurs to finish off our meal. Great staff, great service and lovely food. We will be back.
Food was amazing and good value for money. Great dessert menu. Service was good and nice atmosphere in the restaurant. Would recommend especially for pre theatre.
Great Italian food and the ice cream is quite excellent. Very friendly and efficient service and the overall ambience of restaurant provides the environment for enjoyable social dining. Good Location in central Stirling - handy for rail station and taxi ranks.
This is One of our favourites, the food is always excellent, and it’s reasonably priced. The service could be improved, it’s usually only busy enough to have one waitress but sometimes means you have to really try to grab their attention for example for top up drinks, or the bill etc. Would definitely recommended.
nice food, good service, very friendly people, typical of all Italian places ive visited. have been to this one on numerous occaisons and would certainly use them again. thoroughly recommend them to anyone.
Very friendly staff, excellent service and food at reasonable prices. Lighting is a bit bright and we were sat at a table next to a very noisy bunch but that obviously is not the restaurants fault.
A charming authentic Italian restaurant. Lovely staff and excellent food modestly priced. Highly recommend. Will definitely return to sample more! Very well situated in the centre of the city.
I booked for a lunchtime business meeting and we were all happy with both the quality of the food and the service. I plan to eat here again next time I am in Stirling.
Great food and staff, been a few years since I was there and was not disappointed, high point was the lasagne for me fantastic, and the ice cream which is to die for, not sure about the decoration / style looks dated.
