Had the worst experience at this restaurant. The food was absolutely abismal - it looks like it's out of a packet and cooked in the microwave. We actually laughed when we were served with our mains. When we queried the meals with the waiter and manager, they laughed and said it was just us as we didn't know Italian food.... More

Meal for 4 of us, all very happy with our meals and the service. We had a pasta dish, steak, and two of the chicken dishes, all really tasty. Separate bowl of veg with steak and chicken dishes which was really nice. We would go back whenever returning to Penrith.

Called in on New Year's Eve without a booking, and although the restaurant was busy they found us a table. Service was friendly and prompt and food was excellent. A genuine Italian restaurant run by Italians. Will definitely be back, especially as the pubs where we usually eat on the edge of the Lake District weren't interested in providing for... More

Welcomed and straight through to a table by the window. Kindly split drink and main course for two sons perfectly and very quick service. Food was well prepared and tasty, sons had tomato pasta and adults had the pizza. Exactly what the family needed after spending the day out in the Lake District. Ended up sharing the pizza with the... More

Stopped over on a shopping break at the new Premier Inn. Browsed online looking for somewhere to eat and to be fair there's lots of options in central Penrith. Good reviews on Trip Advisor are usually a great guide and once again they were. A classic Italian restaurant, busy so make sure you book. Fantastic food, friendly staff and great... More

Our party of 12 were tempted by this years traditional Christmas/Italian menu priced at a very reasonable £22, and none of us were disappointed with either the quality or the quantity of the food provided. Satisfying a large group with varying requirements is never easy, especially in a busy restaurant, but the friendly proprietor assisted by his excellent staff, together... More

My wife, Susan, and I have been frequenting this jewel in the Crown for a number of years now, it is quite simply the best Italian that we go to. Very friendly owners, remember you and remember your favourite wine choices. But the Creme de la Creme is the SeaFood Spaghetti, cooked in Silver foil, I forget what it is... More
