Find this good family-run Italian restaurant in a characterful building dating from the 15th century, and partly constructed of old beams salvaged from shipwrecks of the time.
Their lengthy menu blends dishes from the Italian regions with local & French influences. Starters such as 'Carpaccio of Beef with Olive Oil, Parmean & Rucola Salad'; 'Six Guernsey Oysters with Shallot & Red Wine Vinaigrette'; 'Aubergine Parmagiana' (with tomatoes, buffalo mozzarella, basil & garlic) and 'Champignons Rochelle' (open mushrooms with local crab, garlic butter & Parmesan) set the style.
To be followed by the likes of 'Pan-Fried Scallops with Balsamic Syrup, Crisp Bacon & Buttered Spinach'; 'Goujons of Sole with Tartare Sauce'; 'Rack of Best End of English Lamb with Red Wine & Port Jus' and 'Saltimbocca alla Romana' (veal escalopes with Parma ham, sage & white wine) among the listed mains.
Local lobster - served in different ways - is a speciality.
Italian-style desserts include the ever-popular Tiramisu and the like.
Friendly & helpful service.
