"What a wonderful BBQ!"

I went to San Tomaso with friends and had a mix of starters (culatello, crema di fagioli alla Maltese, piadina) followed by a most wonderful mix of grilled meat and vegetables! To finish with a lovely desert (catalana). Thumb up!

As an Italian, born and raised in Milan, I have to say this place makes an excellent risotto. Cooking this dish takes mastery as the grain must stay intact during cooking but soft enough. The other crucial part is the balancing of tastes and they are able to accomplish it marvelously. Their risotto is special. If you are looking for... More

You can get a better Italian meal than this in any London suburb. The food was poorly made and tasteless. The Arrabbiata sauce was bland and had no bite. We paid for the 27 Euro meal with two twenties and initially only got 3 Euros change. We had to ask for the 10 Euros owed, which they did return.

I had lunch with my Italian colleagues at this tavern. It is just off Piazza Cordiuso in the heart of the city. At the tavern, they mainly serve freshly made salads and soups. You order at the counter. Salads are prepared when ordered. Sometimes, you are asked if you want a specific ingredient. There is a choice of dressings such... More

Went there with friends. Bumped into it. The atmosphere is most friendly, would say a family atmosphere. Table setting is simple but clean and has its appeal. The surprise is the food. Simple but to say the least excellent. Most reasonable prices. Do not miss.

I have come to this place a few times for work, as my office is in the area, and I have never liked what it has to offer. The menu is limited, with rather poor food quality. Usually I take a Schnitzel, and every time I realize that the quality of the meat is average at best. Desserts are also... More
