We have visited this tiny Italian restaurant a few times now. Always busy but if they can the delightful staff will do their best to fit you in, so not much space between tables, but its all part of the warm and comfortable atmosphere. Everyone...More

We stumbled over this quaint little Italian restaurant and decided to eat here. The restaurant is small, maybe 12 tables, but outside dining was available. We got a table straight away, there was four of us in total. Got the feeling it was a family...More

Such a nice place! Me and my friend visited here for dinner in the summer. Waiters were so friendly and chatty. Not one of those typical chain restaurants. Great food!

This was an impromptu visit and we were not disappointed! Staff were fantastic and very friendly. The spaghetti bolognese was delicious and the food seemed very authentic. Would 100% recommend.

Owing to its proximity to Smithfield Market – the site
of an ancient meat market which remains in operation
today – Clerkenwell boasts a plethora of globally
renowned restaurants, fabulous local eateries, and
some of London's favorite pubs. This isn't merely a
focal point for all things foodie though. Spend enough
time wondering through the area's maze of streets and
you might become accustomed to the litany of slinky
