Stumbled upon this humble Italian restaurant before a theatre show. They have a set menu available for £15.95 which includes a starter & main as well as dome bread & olives and a shot of limoncello or amaretto. We enjoyed an easy drinking Trebbiano. We...More

This review is a long time coming. I could call this one of my locals. Great pizza and pasta, reasonably priced. It’s an old school place with your typical checked tablecloths . Love it! Little olives and bread given as an aperitif - standard but...More

Cute little Italian, with friendly service. Sit outside if you can, nice to be al fresco without a bus passing every 20 seconds. We had an affordable 2course set menu - happy with what we got. Whitebait was fresh, lasagne was a good portion (though...More

Having read the mixed reviews I did not expect much. A friend recommended this small Italian trattoria for lunch. This is in a row of small eateries close to Farringdon Station. All are busy on a weekday lunchtime. We enjoyed our meal here and will...More

of an ancient meat market which remains in operation
today – Clerkenwell boasts a plethora of globally
