Every time we come here we are always greeted in a positive and friendly manner. The food is always piping hot and delicious in flavour. There's never a long wait, even during busy times and it feels more like we have been invited into a warm family home instead of a restaurant.

The personable and upbeat service really adds to the relaxed and rustic atmosphere. The prices are more than reasonable and the portion sizes are consistently generous. The calzones resemble an elephants head!

We try to come here at least once a month as it's always our go to for authentic Italian food

We visited here when friends were staying with us. Excellent service, tasty meals and a lovely selection of things to try. There was a lovely atmosphere, and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals. The waiter was very good, making my friends son who doesn't like many drinks, feel part of the occasion. And the desert was great too.

Pizza Calzone is AMAZING. It was like we were completely transported to a quaint town in Italy and sincerely experienced TOP NOTCH customer service from bringing to end.

We walked in at about 10:15pm on a Sunday night because our car broke down. And what could have been a dreadful night turned into a truly delightful evening where we forgot about our troubles. At no point did we tell them about the car, we just apologized for coming in late (they close at 11), and they insisted it was their pleasure to serve us. Every staff member was so attentive, constantly checking in, ensuring everything was to our liking, and doing small things to enhance our experience. For example the chef came out to cut our pizza, calzones, babbling away in Italian with a smile, they brought chili oil out once we started eating, indicating they thought we might enjoy more spice (my in-laws are Indian) and the list goes on. At no point did we ever feel rushed. We were already convinced this was probably one of the best customer service experiences we ever had in England, and then they didn’t even charge us for our desert and coffees which we enjoyed past their closing time at their insistence!! Again, they had no idea what a rough start of the evening we were having, it just seemed like they do what they can for all their customers. We would absolutely make the trip back to Banburry just to come here again (about an hour drive from where our family lives that we visit in the UK). One more thing, at the end of the night the owners of the Indian restaurant from across the street came in just to check-in and say goodnight after they closed, which seemed like a nightly ritual. This whole scene illustrated just what a wonderfully genuine family-owned business this was. They appear to be well loved in the community and treat everyone like family. Definitely going to make the trip back and recommend this place to anyone who wants a quick escape to Italy when they’re anywhere near this town.
