The restaurant is in the centre of Stirling easy to access by transport. It has a cosy feel and decorated in an Italian style. We had fine welcome, and placed easily. The drinks and menus were dealt with. We had a Calamari and garlic mushrooms to start with both were served quickly both were nice and hot and equally tasty. The mains were scallops with tagliatelle (five generous full sized scallops). The other dish was again a tagliatelle, papalina, again a generous portion. The service was quick and the people were cheerful. Therefore i would come back to this restaurant again and recommend it to others.

I enjoyed my meal as did my family, quick efficient service, open kitchen where you can see everything being prepared freshly. Very flavoursome food!

This was my second visit, the first being many many years ago. Prices are average for this type of restaurant.

The menu is classic Italian with some real oldie deserts such as banana split and knickerbocker glory in amongst Italian favourites such as Tiramisu.

Although Italian food is timeless, the presentation was very much of the 70s/80s and was a little disappointing, scallops served in shells and the like, don’t get me wrong the food was good, but the presentation let it down, the crockery was chipped and the cutlery was all mis-matched with parmesan served out an old soup bowl.

I would definitely recommend this restaurant as the quality is good, I would however encourage them to invest in some decent crockery and cutlery as this is not what I expect from a restaurant and to present their food in a more modern way, also as an Italian restaurant I would hope for more Italian deserts there are lots to choose from, not ancient and boring old banana splits etc.

I will definitely visit again in a couple of years and hope that the 21st century has arrived!

The warmth of the Welcome and the attention (without being fussy) is what makes every visit so special. Terrific food is a given, pizza and pasta all outstanding . Nothing flashy, just good quality ingredients lovingly cooked.

Lots of options to choose from the menu. We had canellonni, lasagne and scaloppina, all delicious and well served. The restaurant is well decorated, very comfortable and cosy.
