Good, authentic, unpretentious family food in a very warm and welcoming setting. I had spaghetti all vongole and enjoyed it a lot,even though I usually go for very meaty dishes. The service is unique, the lady managing the place is quite a character, super outgoing and friendly, making sure... read more

We visited for the first time with my parents, who were visiting from Scotland, and had a fantastic meal. The food, the service and the atmosphere were all great. They do a fantastic 2 or 3 course deal during the week which we will definitely be taking advantage of. Looking forward to our next visit!

I was surprised to see some negativity on here as everytime we have eaten here the food has always been good and the waiting staff very friendly. This was the first visit for about a year but we were still remembered and for other guests in our house party it was a lot longer than that. Admittedly the birthday celebrations... More

Been here on a number of occasions & always love the food, wine & friendly atmosphere. The service is generally very good & the menu quite varied as you would expect from any good restaurant. Its not too far from the centre of Surbiton & mid week there is always a very well priced set menu that can surely compete... More

I booked this restaurant on the basis of somewhere local and the reviews on trip advisor. We weren't disappointed! There was a extensive menu to choose from. We had the bruschetta, squid and sardines for starters. The veal Milanese, prawns, tagliatelle carbonara and the rolled beef. All good! We opted not to have dessert here. The atmosphere is fantastic, with... More

We've been to this restaurant many times over the years and it never fails to impress from the warmth of the reception to the quality and standard of the food. This must be one of the friendliest restaurants around. We'll keep going back and sending friends. Go and be delighted!

First of all, the food. It's very good indeed - simple and tasty. A wide choice, and excellent value for money. Secondly, the welcome. Very friendly and cheerful, as you would hope from a family-run place. Good service. Thirdly, the atmosphere. Lively, with birthday songs for guests, and wandering musicians at weekends. So not probably the place for a quiet... More

Family run and always busy. Great atmosphere, good menu with excellent pizza and pasta. Service is warm and friendly. The walls are adorned with suitably cheesey Italian memorabilia and if you're lucky you'll see the owner sing happy birthday! I often walk past early in the day and see them cleaning the front of the restaurant or working inside. It's... More
