“By far the best restaurant in Wigan. We have been about 20 times and never once had a bad plate of food. The pasta dishes are fantastic and so are the steaks. We have been as a couple, for family birthdays and for a christening with a party of 30 and the service has always been great.”
Best in Wigan
“An authentic, small, cosy Italian restaurant. Fantastic food, very helpful staff and good service. Portions are larger compared to typical Italian restaurants so be aware (not that I’m complaining!) A good selection of Italian wine at reasonable prices too! Closer to a car park makes it very convenient as well.!”
A hidden gem!
“Fantastic service, atmosphere, cuisine and bar quality I have ever experienced, have travelled the globe this come very highly as a recommendation. Do not miss this !!”
