Good Italian food

Decent Italian food, generally very good, though avoid rugby nights as its too busy. Moderately expensive. Best to stick to traditional Italian fare as that is the best good. Decent wine list

I love Italian food and unfortunately quality of the meal was far away from my expectations. I have ordered pasta with a sauce, usually in other Italian restaurants get a nice smooth, sauce with a good consistency. This time I had kind of a gloopy sauce, which did not taste homemade. We had a nice time, service was pleasant and... More

Came in with a group of friends at not particularly busy lunchtime. Waiters looked put out to see us. Most food was nice/ok but bit pricey for what it was. The mushroom pasta was unbelievably salty and inedible. Inattentive service.

Found it quite pricy for what we had. Not your average Italian. No spag bol or lasagne on the menu. And not a great choice. Lot of fish dishes. Crab. Octopus etc. But what we had (Ravioli) was very nice.

As always Osteria Pulcinella did not disappoint, this is one of my favorite restaurants in Twickenham. Best fresh pasta I've tasted outside Italy, my husband had the Strozzapreti - wholewheat pasta with spicy chicken, and I had the Crab ravioli. Both delicious and the service was perfect.

We chose to eat Italian as one of our party was vegetarian and even in the meat-fest of Russia there was always something meat free in an Italian restaurant. Not so here. Our poor friend ended up with a plate of roasted sweet potatoes and a green salad. My crab ravioli was rubbery and tepid. It is clearly popular so... More

Went to this restuarant for lunch and it was absolutely brilliant. The staff are very friendly, the food is delicious and the prices are reasonable. We had the steak and caramelised onion panini served with salad and fries and it was very tasty at a bargain £6.95. Will go back again!
