Brilliant meal and fab service. My mum is celiac and the team at this restaurant offered her the same range of pasta and pizza dishes with gluten free alternatives. We both enjoyed our meal and would go back.

Stunning lunch. We dived in here for a quick lunch before leaving Stirling and the food here was so surprisingly fresh. My focaccia was mouth wateringly good! Iced coffees were HUGE and refreshing. Also great chatty staff and authentic Italian cooks and foods.

Food very good, staff friendly and helpful and very competitive single malt prices. The staff could not do enough for us and made us feel welcome and valued. This is a great wee restaurant.

Great restaurant, able to cater well for small and large groups without any fuss. Service was very friendly and efficient with an obvious family commitment to offering the best Italian food I’ve tasted outside of Italy.
