Lovely food and great unobtrusive service. Our servers checked on us enough to make sure we were happy but not so much they interrupted conversation. The house red is delicious and the garlic bread selection is a must have! This is definitely one of my favourite places to eat in Carlisle and the location is spot on.

The service was friendly and efficient and the food excellent as always. My favourite place in Carlisle to go to eat Italian food. Would recommend booking as it is always busy especially at weekends.

Everytime i go here its lovely food. Only thing i would say is please let people sit down and look at the drinks menu before asking them what they want to drink.
