Italian night

We visited this ristorante because we wanted an Italian Meal and it was just across the road from our hotel. The food was excellent although the menu was a little limited. The service was very good and wouild consider eating here again on future visits

I went here with the Missus for dinner on a weekday evening and was very pleasantly surpised. It all felt quite authentically Italian while not feeling dated. The food was very good, it was fresh and tasty; hit the spot nicely. The staff were friendly and the bill reasonable. What more can you ask for?

Friendly, swift service. Food menu choice at reasonable prices. Lovely fresh ingredients. Don't think a service charge should be added for a single diner though.

We found this little italian by accident on a trip to london. It was staffed by friendly welcoming helpful people. The decor was pleasant and made you easily forget that outside was a busy main road. I had Carbonarra which was very good it was well presented and served in a reasonable amount of time. The portion size was good... More

Nice place with good service. However, the food was at best very average from appetizer from starter to desert. Tomato sauce tastes distinctly canned and "tiger prawns" were tiny shrimp. While it was crowded during my visit, for the price, there has to be a better alternative.

We asked our concierge to recommend an Italian restaurant close by. He told us to go to Old Amalfi (maybe his brother). Whilst I am not knocking the quality of the food: good fresh stuff and my fillet steak was very good this place lacks any finesse at all. Seervice is fine but the presentation is very poor, add to...

Ate here last Saturday, whilst staying at the Mercure across the road - we were going to a show so wanted an early dinner. Only one other couple in the restaurant - but we did have to wait some time for our food, and for our order to be taken, not too much of a problem but we did not... More
