Went early Saturday night, sat outside and had the bruschetta, seafood platter and grilled bugs between 3 people. The food was excellent and service was great.

Fabulous food, friendly and efficient staff. Hubby had a steak which he said was perfectly cooked. I am vegetraian and there is lots on the menu to cater for non-carnivores. If we lived in Mebourned we would visit often. The review asks about noise levels - it was noisy but in a fun, Italian, enjoyable way.

The food is always amazing when we come here. My family has been going to this restaurant for almost 30 years. The staff are always so pleasant and helpful. I couldn't think of a better place for that authentic Italian experience.

We chose typical Italian dishes, gnocchi and lasagne; good helpings and great quality food. Staff very good. Open area dining a bit too cold even with gas heater.
