    Pleasant restaurant with friendly staff, quite full due probably to switch on of the Christmas lights in Knutsford. Table was available as per our booking, drinks order taken promptly and delivered. The food order was taken, starters were fine, mains were not correct, I ordered chunky chips with my chicken, fries came instead, my wife ordered roast potatoes with here steak, the potatoes were not very warm. This was pointed out to our server who gave us complimentary brandy snaps and two drinks with sincere apologies.

    Lovely evening with great food and a pleasant vibe. Slight delay in the production of the main course cost them a star, which is probably a little harsh on my part.

    Great Italian food and very good service (attentive and reactive without being too pushy). Food arrived as preordered and they have even accommodated the menu for special dietary needs. Lovely setting as well. Overall great place to good for a meal or date.

    From start to finish the service was excellent with all members of the very smiley & friendly team patiently taking on board specific requests to flex the menu for particular dietary needs. Wide variety of food on offer to suit pretty much all palates & the overall ambience of the restaurant was very good. We did notice, however, that the (very lively) music appeared to get louder as the evening progressed, causing all diners to increase their 'volume' to compensate, resulting in it becoming quite difficult to hear conversations on our own table at times. Having said that, we did have a great evening & would definitely dine there again.

    been travelling from south west wales to knutsford for years and have always visited this italian. usually the staff are extremely welcoming and friendly and the food is to die for booked this meal 2 months prior for a special occasion. there was nothing special about it. we were only there an hour and yet we were rushed out of our table… the waiter was extremely rude (to be fair the young waitresses with drinks etc were absolutely lovely) this has ruined what was once a lovely tradition. won’t be coming back again. put a dampener on our special weekend away

    "I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in your own home. I definitely will return to try more dishes. The only negative was at some points it was very noisy so if you’re going for a quiet meal then this may be a problem.

    I enjoyed my starter. Choose the wrong main. Enjoyed my dessert. The waitress came coming over to see if we were enjoying our meal too often & we were rushed. Our plates were been removed before my husband had finished eating .
