Great service and very good food
((((( 13 October 2017 by Anne from Reading
We have eaten here many times and are always given a warm welcome. Marco, and his team were very attentive and the food as usual was delicious. It's lovely to be able to eat imaginative and delicious food that is different from all the "chains" . Well done to Tony for his recent awards for the restaurant.

Arguably one of the best Italian/Sardinian restaurants in Reading.
The pasta is freshly made each day and pasta dishes are top class.
The menu is lovely, tastes are great and the wine list top notch with many bottles reasonably priced.
There is always a friendly welcome which continues with the professional service throughout the evening.

The food was delicious , and we had a really nice welcome by the maitre'd. The only downside was when it came to deserts we were recommended to noynorder the desserts hat took longer as the kitchen was busy, so we didn't. Despite this, my order of profiteroles (the only thing left on the menu that I could eat) ended up taking about half an hour, and they served this hehe rest of the desserts without waiting for mine, so I had to eat mine about 15 minutes after everyone else. I even after sled whether I could cancel it but they insisted it was on its way. We did get an apology but they laughed it off and given how long we had to wait I would have expected more acknowledgement. I would recommend it for the food as it tasted great, but don't make plans for afterwards!

Excellent food and service as always. I would like a bit more choice for vegetarians/vegans. That’s not to say my pasta was not lovely. But a little bit more choice would be good.

Food was amazing, from starters to desserts, and drinks.
I would recommend to have the "tagliata" as main, and try the specials recommended by the staff. Wine was excellent. Staff is really friendly and helpful. Definitely will go there again.

In over 20 years of visiting this restaurant the food, service and friendly atmosphere have never changed. It is simply the best long may it continue and I would urge anyone to sample for themselves and enjoy
