Overpriced, service and food lacking.

On initial entry this seems like a reasonably characterful authentic Italian resturant. However our group was shepherded to sit infront of the kitchen with a wait of 15min before even being offered a drink menu. That was all simply frustrating but no biggie in the grand scheme of things. What... read more

We had our Christmas party here yesterday and I have to say, probably the nicest Italian restaurants we've ever been to. The service was great! The food came on time and the staff were lovely and ever so helpful! The food was delicious, especially the pumpkin gnocchi I would recommend this anyone! Thanks for making our evening great!

We booked our Christmas event here and had dinner with 15 people on a big table downstairs. The food was really tasty in particular the pumpkin truffle gnocchi. Service was great and really friendly staff. Would definitely recommend anyone to have dinner at this restaurant. Well done!

Our friends had reserved a table for 4, and had the e-mail to prove it. But there was an awkward moment when it was discovered there was none reserved and the initial response as to offer us a table at the sister restaurant in Wapping! However when it became clear this wasn't going to work miraculously a table was found... More

The staff were brilliant and kept our table for us despite a late arrival inflicted on us by the taxi. The menu is quite limited but offers high quality Italian food at very reasonable prices.They explained all the different pasta types in great detail and I... More

Imaginative menu of starters and pastas. Very limited range of mains (2) and no side dishes. But that is part of the charm. It's a family restaurant, with Sardinian origins. Simple, good quality. All of the specials are changed daily and many of the dishes use Sardinian ingredients that you don't find in many places. The wine list has a... More

I was hugely disappointed by this restaurant- the staff were rude, the menu was very limited, the food was completely overpriced and tasted average.

This little place is a gem! The staff is Italian and the food is authentic. They bring over a display of the types of pasta offered each night (note: do not refer to pasta as "noodles") and a chalk board with a rotating menu. For dessert, I recommend the pear and chocolate cake with mascarpone ice cream.
