We tried this restaurant out tonight and were very disappointed. At £15 plus service for a bowl of pasta you're not expecting a small portion, especially in place that seems ordinary. The food tasted fine but the portions were tiny. In addition, when offered mineral water we asked for 1 bottle of each, when the bill arrived we had to... More

The food we had was very good but not sure I would keep coming back to restaurant as there was a limited choice of starters and main in course and all were pasta of some form or other.... all very nice but nothing other than pasta. If the restaurant was to expand its menu I would give it 5 stars... More

Possibly the nicest lunch I've had this year - the tagliatelle di castagne con ragu di selvaggina was superb and the service was perfect.

Found this tucked away down a little alleyway and so glad we did. Welcoming friendly atmosphere and delicious but unpretentious food, very reasonable priced.

I've been traveling to London quite a bit and this little gem somehow has escaped me. The meal I just had was excellent, and very affordably priced for London. The setting is bright, but comfortable, and quiet enough to have a conversation. The staff is friendly and make you feel at home. What more could you ask for? OK, food... More

I went to this restaurant two years ago, and came back with all my girlfriends. Had the best time with the best food ever. The owner treated us as his family. The food was excellent, autentic and so fare from the "italian" place you find all over the world. Looking for Italy?visit this place!!!!

This Italian bistro is nestled at the rear alley of Fleet Street. We visited there in a group of 5 and tried most of their dishes. They serve honest hearty authentic Italian food. In particular, the seafood salad is fresh and delicious. For main course, the pasta dish with roasted almond and tomato has been excellent and is a cut... More

Had a late lunch with a greeting that made us feel at home, and it only got better. The food was very good with the daily special being excellent. Will go back

This lovely, welcoming Italian restaurant would be hard to find by accident - we were taken there for lunch by a relative who works nearby - but the meal that ensued far exceeded my expectations. The menu, and the dishes we chose from it, were 'authentic' in their Italian character - soup, pasta and lamb cutlets were selected, and each... More
