I reguarly stop of here for a cappuccino -they are the best in the west end- but the other day I had lunch. It was lovely. The thing that really makes this tiny place special is the staff. They are all so welcoming and will make you want to return!!

I love North Star with its great atmosphere, amazing food & very friendly service. It is small & cosy which adds to the sense of being something special. Owners Ester & Maurizio cannot do enough to help & are always pleased to see us...even help with our rather active 2 year old! As a result of their friendly manner there... More

I Love this small friendly cafe/bistro. The staff are so friendly and welcoming and the food is always excellent - all freshly made. It has a buzz about the place, relaxed & very welcoming atmosphere and if you want to practice your Italian, then look no further.

The soup is always great & the cakes always hit the spot with they're awesome coffee. You will... More

What a find! Coming from an Italian family myself we are always an Italian restaurants worst nightmare, as it's always difficult to find authentic Italian cuisine unless you're actually in the country it's self. I stumbled across this restaurant while visiting a friend in the West End. I had the Pappardelle with wild mushrooms and blue cheese...it was amazing! I... More

All the reviews here are spot on! My partner and I have started driving out of our way specially to have breakfast here, and every time we're warmly greeted and served wonderful food for great prices. The atmosphere is really friendly and when I thought it couldn't get better, I tried their cake! Oh, the cake. 10/10! :D - Nutella... More
