Our independent, family-run restaurant has been bringing fresh, tasty,
Italian-inspired food to Southsea since 1999.

If you have any food allergies and intolerances, please speak to our staff before you order and a full breakdown of each dishes’ allergen ingredients can be provided on request.

While every effort is made to minimise risk, our tiny kitchen handles all ingredients, so we can’t guarantee the absence of allergens in our menu items.
