This is not a "chain" Italian feel. So one almost expects more from it in its situation in Spitalfields. The food was tasty, the menu is reasonable without being adventurous. Service was spot on, helpful in describing dishes, attentive and really friendly. The value for...More

The menu is really tempting with a decent range of dishes. What was served up was above average without setting the place alight to be honest. That said the value is fair and the service is excellent which makes for a very decent overall experience....More

For a glimpse of Georgian and Victorian London at its
most pristine, or a peek into what's apt to be the
next big global trend, the hipster zone of
Spitalfields can provide hours of amazement. Around
the clock, this is a haven for early morning bargain
hunters sizing up its street markets, foodie foragers
throughout the day, or late night revelers hitting
some of London's most popular bars and clubs.
