The pizzas are the best thing. This used to be our favorite neighborhood place but the food has gone down hill significantly with the last time my husband getting violently ill from the mussels.

Food here is really good and the staff are pleasant and very helpful. Didn't book in advance but that wasn't a problem, was settled within 5 mins of arrival. The restaurant isn't very big but it feels like a proper Italian restaurant run by Italians. The food is good with a great atmosphere. Used to live locally, so been there... More

Food was ok, service was rushed, portions were very small and disappointing for the price. We won't be visiting again. We left hungry and had room for another meal elsewhere!

I just ordered a pizza through an online service from that restaurant. I am now sick and dizzy thanks to spinaches that are obviously not fresh. I couldn't eat more than three bites anyway because the smell is definitely telling me that these spinaches have been lying a long time far from their roots... It might be due to a... More

Very surprised by some of the negative reviews on here. I'm a regular customer and have had nothing but great service and delicious food. There is also a selection of nice wines in the sub 20 quid range which is rare around here. Start with a Negroni and try the specials!

I took 2 friends for dinner last Thursday at 10 pm. Being late we ordered 2 "Sirloin Beef Tagliata" medium cooked, highly recommended by the waiter, and a Cheese Ravioli. After 30 minutes, the food finally arrived. The Ravioli looked and tasted ok, the 2 Beef Tagliata looked nothing like a Sirloin as described on the menu, but had a... More

5 people on a Saturday night - unfortunately we were seated in the rear room which made it very difficult to get anyone's attention and we had kitchen porters walking through to go out the back door (which let a freezing cold draught in when it wasn't closed properly). The food here is really good and the staff are really... More

Took my girlfriend here for her birthday, we both loved it. Unpretentious relaxed atmosphere but friendly knowledgeable service and really good food.

My only real complaint is Don't book this place online, you will be bombarded with spam from Quandoo -- even if you don't join. We wanted a semi-formal family meal and this was just right, good food and a good atmosphere, a nice buzz but you could talk OK even if you are old and deaf like me. The service... More

We happened upon this restaurant early Saturday evening. We hadn't booked but it was early. Anyway, the welcome was fulsome. All were smiles and positivity. The food was very good (Paccheri and Risotto) and the bin end Montepulciano was excellent. All at reasonable prices. We will come again.
