Quite simply, the food here was spectacular! We enjoyed every last bite. The portions were more than enough, and super tasty. Cooked to perfection. We struggled to finish our meals, but we did purely because it was that good we couldn't stop eating! I had a large house red with dinner, which as a red wine lover, I was pleasantly... More

We came across this Italian restaurant by chance, as we were looking for a place to eat fast and easy, having a limited amount of time available. I must say that the service was quite fast, and we managed to finish out meal in 45 minutes, according to our needs. However, the food was absolutely average: an overcooked Risotto and... More

Was looking for somewhere to eat around Bethnal Green, we decided on this place and was not disappointed! Friendly staff and amazing Italian food! I'm a vegetarian so there wasn't a massive choice and I had a spinach and ricotta tortelloni and it was really delicious! They give large portions for a good price too! Which is a bonus considering... More

Good service, great Italian food which is well-presented, full of flavour, and comes in very generous portions. The prices offer good value and the inside is nicely decorated, with a traditional feel and a nice raised seating area. We particularly enjoy the pizzas (the calzone is enormous!) and have visited several times - and will likely visit again!

I stopped here for dinner whilst staying locally for business. I arrived early and was the onl customer initially, but the waiting staff were very attentive. The Gamberoni starter was amazing! A fairly large venue, but the next customers chose to sit right next to me and were quite loud. Generous portion sizes. I enjoyed my meal.

I've tried many of the more well known recommended pizza places but the pizzas here by far are the best. The base is really well made and the toppings are tasty and generous. All at a good price!

Thank Martyn S
