Went out to Nolio for a birthday dinner, the little restaurant is intimate and has charm. Good atmosphere, our waitress was great and the food was divine! Highly reccomend the Agnello pizza!

This lovely café style Italian restaurant offers good, friendly service, good coffee and decent meal. They changed the decor a bit and rhe fresh potted plants on the table is a lovey addition. Just one thing.... none of kitchen staff were wearing their face masks!...Everyone’s masks were on their chins 😳More

Excellent food. The prawn pasta was amazing The service was slow and a little inattentive Loads of wines not available The owner was there but busy chatting to q lady. If the service matched the food it would be worth the price.

Words cannot begin to describe how much we LOVE this restaurant! One of the best spots in PE. From the waiters and waitresses service, to the friendly kitchen staff, to awesome management and owners, to the absolutely fantastic food, there is nothing we can fault!...If you join them for lunch on Tuesday - Fridays, please try the Chicken pizza and the Hake, you will see what we mean! However if you feel like a treat their lamb pizzas is delicious otherwise if you go on a Tuesday ANY of their pastas are a great choice! 5 stars just isn’t enough!More

Our first impression wasn’t too great unfortunately, first of all my reservation that I made a week before hadn’t been recorded so when we arrived and gave our name, it wasn’t on the list. It was so noisy that we could hardly hear each other...speak and had to shout. It felt like we were at a concert or a night club. I would suggest they play Italian music to make it feel more authentic, the music they were playing was some loud rock n roll which made it even harder to hear each other. The waitress wasn’t very well trained and kept forgetting to take everyone’s order and was very quick to remove our plates and glasses etc, even when we weren’t exactly finished with our meal. On the plus side the food is delicious but not really sure if we will be back anytime soonMore
