We visited Bowness for a weekend and ate here on the first night. Food was brilliant and atmosphere was authentic. We both had fillet steaks which were cooked to perfection and the sauces were delicious. Would definitely return! Thanks

A family meal pre- theatre which we all enjoyed. Service exceptionally friendly and attentive and a good selection of meals. Expensive for an Italian but I guess that comes with the location and reputation. Many thanks.
