Reviewed 10 November 2017

We first visited this restaurant in September for lunch, as we were coming back for a conference in November we said we would return and we did, booked in advance this time, always advised in my view.

We had two courses each and could not go for the desert full to the gunnels..

I had the Tiger Prawns as a starter and the CO had Scallops, outstanding so succulent.

Main courses for me was a filet steak medium rare in a blue cheese sauce and The CO had white fish and again perfect. The Veggies we also perfect al dente and Italian style roast potatoes. ( Loved them )

One very minor criticism was on the wine, no Australian Shiraz or NZ sauvignon Blanc . I had asked them on the last visit to consider this for people like us:))
However we had a South African one and that was tasty, the CO is flexible.

I did say on the last visit and review that is is a Boomerang place for us, best recommendation we can give out and it still is.

Sadly it will be much longer before we return next time, however return we will.

This is a good Italian restaurant. We were looking for a restaurant on a Thursday night in the old town and mid evening but all seemed quiet if not deserted. However the Old Custom House had a number of other clients so it seemed ok. We were a party of 4 having the £25,00 set meal each which was fine and it included a glass of wine. When I suggested that for our party of four, throwing in a bottle (6 glasses) rather than the four which were included might not be unreasonable we got nowhere - and we spent £100.00. But the food was really good and with the full meal it was much much more than adequate.

Ate here on Saturday night with a group of friends. Good food, good service, nice environment. I was a little wary of the spiral staircase as my mobility is not brilliant but it was manageable and handy for the toilets which are on the first floor. A lovely evening. Would eat here again.

Owner very welcoming and staff too. Group of 10 and everyone was delighted with their meal, ranging from fresh fish to pasta and chicken. Wine inexpensive but of reasonable quality. Highly recommended.

Booked this restaurant for our first wedding anniversary meal, and we loved it.
It’s not a very big restaurant and was unsure if it’d be any good.
The service we got as soon as we entered was great, offered a drink and sit down until we ordered food and then was shown to our table.
We got a starter and a main with coffee afterwards and although I’m use to paying £30-£40 for food for two the bill of £75 inclusive of service charge was well worth the evening would definitely eat here again
