Fantastic service and I couldn't fault the food. A little hidden gem within Seaton delaval. It also has the best pizza in the local area.

Second visit and a wise choice of eatery by The Gaffer. Arrived at 7:30pm and it was almost full - good atmosphere but a table or two vacant. Nice greeting from the staff and seated promptly. And so to the food - Tomato G/B for Herself and Avocado Leonardo for moi. Both were spot-on, mine especially with a not-too-overpowering blue cheese sauce. The mains were pizzas, Tonno with extra garlic was my companion's selection, Di Feta for me. Again, quite excellent. Add in a bottle of perfectly acceptable house white, a Moretti bottle, double espresso and Sambuca and a bill of a touch below £50 was first class value for money.

We went on the spur of the moment and I'm sorry to say I wish I hadn't bothered , my starter was tasteless , it was taziki with bread which was also tasteless and my pizza base was so thin you could have probably seen through it held up to the light , the topping was all just mozzarella , the best thing was the wine which was zinfandel rose but was pricey at £20 quid a bottle , inhavevto say I don't know what has happened to this place but it's definately gone down hill , I will not be going again.

For a local Italian in a small place like deleval/seghill it’s ok. No frills.
Potato skins come with no side salad and the choice between two dips (would it break the bank to provide two dips?)
Veggie pizza was quite nice- the base was tasty(thin crust) and the presentation was nice enough. However it was described as ‘roast vegetables’ yet had celery on. Different.
