Proper Italian food

This is quite an unexpected find. Not quite the place for a romantic dinner but the pizza was full of fresh produce (and loads of meat) with a crunchy base being one of the best I had eaten. The fresh salmon was also very good washed down with house red wine that I could try before ordering... read more

This restaurant is just down the road from where we stay, and I don't know why it took us so long to try it out. Bye bye Papa Johns. Only the best thin crust fresh, authentic Italian pizza from Piccolo Olivo for me :) The pasta portions are quite large, so good value for your money as well. It's especially... More

Nice service with excellent food, my friend and I ordered a pizza, spaghetti Vongole (when available!), fried prawns and mixed salad. The portion was big enough for 2 big boys, especially the spaghetti with 61 clams. The pizza is the best I ever tried. Highly recommend for tourists.

Great pizza and terrific service. We were staying nearby and were so happy to find this place. Like the best of a small roman trattoria.

What a hidden gem! Staying overnight before catching the Eurostar so needed a simple tasty supper. Fresh pizza, very tasty. Waitress was very friendly & helpful. Good value for money. Sat outside in the evening sun and the unusual ambience of Caledonian Road...

We went to this restaurant after reading tripadvisor and, after having been waiting for 45 minutes for our starters(if there's a table of 9 they already tell you there's going to be delays...) and then another 20 min for our pizzas( and a table that arrived later being served first than us) I had to hear how the chef was...

Best pizza I've had in the UK closely followed by the Vongole and very friendly service with a small but very well priced wine list.

Given the high ranking, I thought I must try this place. I was there last night and was pleasantly delighted by the quality of their food. In a party of 3 we got a Parmigiana di Melanzane to share as entry, and it was delicious. The same is true for Spaghetti alle vongole (clams), which are prepared just as it... More
