Ate here 7th March 2014. Lovely atmosphere. Very warm welcome. Very tasty food, actually tasted Italian, lasagna, papardelle, tortellini. The prices for London standards very reasonable.The proprietors son took the time to chat with us and ask if our food was OK. Highly recommended for simple home style food.

Our meal was excellent from beginning to end. I like to patronize the small places and this time it worked well. I don't understand the critisms. It wasn't perfect, of course, but very very good. Service was. Prompt and friendly. I recommend.

Came across this family run establishment on a trip to London last week and glad that we did. Ecclectic Italian decor with very snug seating so encourages you to talk to fellow diners, something somewhat consigned to the past. Food was good value for money, not top class but totally edible. Interesting to see many local diners in there. House... More

We ate here one evening on our short break to London and I must say we both really enjoyed it. We were welcomed into the restaurant by the friendliest Italian gent who was so welcoming and found us a seat quickly. The decor inside is cute. We ordered drinks and food and were not disappointed, bf had steak with pepper... More

This place is great for a cheap fun meal out. The staff are friendly and funny and I always have a lovely time in there. The food isn't the best italian I've had but the place has a great charm which keeps us coming back.

An authentic Italian Restaurant with nice pasta dishes (there isn't any pizza) and limited menu. Although I suggest for a romantic dinner.

It draws you in. Cosy, quaint, family-owned Italian - you think. From the Toscane décor and the smile and handshake of the Italian grandfather who greets you; we entered full of hope. However, that hope switfly died, as we were served cardboard crunch garlic-flavored bread. Things worsened as we started eating our spaghetti and canelloni. The spaghetti swam in a... More

Been here several times now. Great little Italian restaurant. Very homely, family run Italian restaurant. Food is excellent as is the atmosphere, if you like a 'family type restaurant'. Value is good too. Seats are a little tight but it is well worth it. Not a 'posh' restaurant just great food, friendly service and good value. Well worth a visit... More
