Fantastic service, attentive without being overpowering. Good portion sizes, we left feeling satisfied rather than stuffed. Well priced as well.

    We booked early Sunday afternoon for a table at 7:30, we arrived and greeted straight away, then shown to our seats our jackets were taking, three members of staff come to check on us at seperate times to see if we were okay. Quick service but very professional, the food we had was fantastic, goats cheese and red onion focaccia for myself and pate for my fiancée, both fantastic beautiful presentation for my focaccia starter, mains I had a pizza and my fiancée had goats cheese and red onion filled pasta, again both fantastic, for desert my fiancée had a chocolate fondant which she said was delicious I had gelato which was delicious the waiting staff were excellent, and due to local powercuts the lights when down 3 times for only a matter seconds in the restaurant though, the waiter kindly removed the deserts from our bill which was appreactied as there was no need to. I'd highly reccomend this place to anyone, it's took a few years for us to go here and I can't understand why, by far the best Italian in Dunfermline, and as a chef myself I normally complain about certain things, but I could not fault anything from this experience 10/10.

    Booked here as we have been a few times before and loved it. This time, 2 of us got lasagne as we have enjoyed it there before. It looked different to usual when we received it...we both found it was cold in the middle, piping hot on the outside. We told the staff and they argued with us about it but agreed to bring new ones out. The new ones came out and were also cold on the middle. So we didn't have any meal. The way the staff handled the situation, by arguing with us and telling us it wasn't cold, was awful and now I won't go back. It's unfortunate as I loved the restaurant before.

    great food, great service and the staff even brought our colleague birthday candle on her dessert without being asked. And the prices are fantastic. Only downside. There was no panacotta on the dessert menu and its the best panacotta I've ever had.

    The food was gorgeous all three courses and the waiter was super friendly and helpful. My only criticism having dined here for the first time was my first impression, table was booked for 8, when we arrived we had to queue at the door part outside to wait in our table. I appreciate this can happen but a seating area or bar to wait would be far better. Perhaps a very busy night but to not have ordered a drink by half 8 for an 8 booking sends the wrong message. It's a shame as everything after that's was great

    Very attentive, knowledgeable staff. Great food.

    Awaiting for serving was too long.

    Staff rather "pushy" with selling their wine, and a long wait for the main meal. The food was nice but I probably wouldn't go back as I didn't feel it was value for money
