Popped in here for an early dinner with a friend. Friendly staff - we had a pizza each and a bottle of the house white which came to £40. Delicious food and would go again.

With friends visited for the first time and enjoyed a delicious pasta dish with Italian sausage, peas, mint and a creamy sauce. House red wine was light and fresh. Service was very friendly and helpful. Surroundings better than most Italian restaurants in the Bloomsbury area. Will definitely go again.

We have eaten here four times now and have always enjoyed the food and the service is friendly. Totally endorse the earlier comment about the card machine being set up to ask for a tip on top of the service charge. The service charge is unfortunately a feature of Italian restaurants in the UK.One could always refuse the charge because... More

Of the four dinners we had this was the best. We had the oven-baked chicken and the salmon. Both were ample portions and cooked to perfection.

Had a meal here whilst having a break away in London - it was round the corner from our hotel and a lovely little place. Had a delicious meal and wonderful authentic Italian surroundings. Prices fairly average as Italian restaurants go. The staff were friendly and very helpful. Would visit again.

This would have been a three star review if the restaurant had not seen fit to configure their credit card machine to ask for a tip when there is a mandatory 10% service charge added to the bill. This behaviour is beyond the pale and needs to be stamped out, if not dragged through the courts... As far as the... More

We were introduced to this restaurant by friends who are regulars when they visit London each year. From the moment you enter, you get the comfortable feeling of an Italian family owned trattoria. The ambience is friendly and the menu offers something for everyone, at very reasonable prices. My husband ordered a Caesar salad to start, I had the tomato/onions/olive... More

We ate here because it was across the road from where we were staying and looked interesting. It was also easy to book a table on a Saturday night. The main courses were clean, rustic and of good quality but the salad was pretty ordinary. Service was friendly and prompt, but surprisingly quiet for a Saturday night.
