We had seen the reviews and were looking forward to a nice meal. The restaurant was almost full and the people and the service was lovely. The food sadly was really disappointing. Maybe we were unlucky as the reviews are so good but our food was truly bland in appearance and taste. We also thought the lighting was very bright... More

Lovely food, the home made pasta is to die for! The chef/owner was amazing, gave us his personal attention all night and adapted recipes to suit personal tastes - what a star that man is.

we went there with our friends who said this place was nice. They were wrong- It was really amazing!! Doesn't look much but the food, the wine,the staff, the ambiance was incredible. You were able to talk without raising your voice. Enjoy beautiful food prepared by the chef who comes to your table to take your orders and discuss specials.... More

We went out with another couple last night to La Bicicletta as it was half way between our two homes (Leigh-on-sea/North London). I had read the reviews on Tripadvisor and decided it was definitely worth a go! It's a very unassuming place in basic but classic Italian decor. It echoes many of the family run Italian restaurants in much of... More

Lovely meal. A cut above the usual Italian. Good selections. Service was friendly. A bit out of the way but worth the extra mileage.

I have driven past this restaurant hundreds of times and always thought as I did that I must book a table some time. Well I wish I had sooner than I did because this place is a breath of fresh air. The food and level of service are amazing. I would recommend it to all. So don't do as I... More

We have been visiting this family run, Italian restaurant for over twenty years now and have always had a good time. This is not a high street chain restaurant - the chef/ owner really is Italian and it is not uncommon to find Italian's eating in this restaurant - a good sign, in my opinion, that the food is authentic...
