Very enjoyable meal

We had dinner there last night and thought it was very good. The food was delicious and I thought the tiramisu was the best I have ever had in a restaurant. We liked the owner who was friendly and welcoming. He gave us interesting information without being intrusive. My only slight criticism was... read more

So often a carbonara is full of cream, but this one was proper, unctuous and delicious rich eggy sauce. YUM! The owner is Italian and has a real heart and passion for his food. We went on our first day here, and am planning a return trip asap! :)

A different style of Italian restaurant. Family run by Romans. There are dishes that others don't have. Loved it

Have been in for a last minute decision dinner and had lovely dinner. The place is small and the food was simple but the service was very friendly. The menu could be more adventurous but safe enough to please the major crowd. Will go back.

We attended as a couple for a celebratory meal. When we arrived we were welcomed by a lovely friendly host, who we believed was the owner. The restaurant was full with happy and content looking customers. Luckily we had reserved a table as it was packed. The table was in a nice spot within the restaurant and had comfortable seats....

A little Italian restaurant in Ruislip Manor specialising in home cooking - not your average Anglicised Italian menu but good food and real Italian cooking so do not expect steak and chips! In fact chips do not feature anywhere which is a nice surprise. It is in fact a family run restaurant without the frills of what is perceived to... More

We had an evening meal and it was absolutely beautiful great service and not over bearing at all. Great family run business will definitely be visiting again.

We ordered off the Valentine’s Day Menu. Just 2 things, the sauce the Chicken came in had no flavour, very bland, & the Spaghetti Bolognese meatball dish was way far too salty, both of which can easily be sorted. That’s it, the appetisers and desserts were good, value also good, but the icing on the cake was the way we... More

Ate at La Tana 2 weeks ago had heard some bad reviews, but thought we would give it a try, as it is a local restaurant. Unfortunately their reviews were valid, no atmosphere, very straight owner, lacking personality, not what i expect from an italian restaurant owner.menu not great. white wine by the glass was awful. food was not good,£10.50...
