An Italian restaurant worth going to

You never have to go far to find an Italian restaurant, particularly an uninspired chain outlet, but you do often have to go a little further to find a GOOD Italian restaurant. Pulcinella has its own quirky character and is run by Italians who are clearly passionate about the food they serve... read more

We had a great meal, very tasty with good wine. The service was attentive without being overbearing. Lots of choices for each course, my tuna was probably the best I'd ever eaten, as was my pear dessert.

Another delicious meal at osteria in Twickenham. I had the tuna Niçoise salad, which was amazing. Tuna cooked to perfection. My husband had a chicken pasta special, which was also lovely. Really recommend this lovely place for a reliable Italian meal.

Regular visitor here for lunch - always great food and service. The tuna salad is marvellous as are all the pasta dishes. Great value. Would appreciate more choices on the wine menu, though ...

I visited recently with friends for lunch and have to say that the food was delicious and well presented. The service was excellent and food came out very quick. I would highly recommend this Italian restaurant to anyone else.

this was the second time we went for a dinner to this restaurant. The menu has changed slightly. I've ordered rabbit for main course. Was rather dry... Also, way too many staff, hence orders get mixed up a lot. Shame.

Just rocked up looking for a table for 6 for a nice relaxing family evening meal, and this was the perfect venue. Food and wine was excellent quality, very tasty; and service was faultless - good value for money also. Would definitely recommend for either groups or couples and would definitely re-visit if in the area again.

We normally eat over the road at Masaniello if we want to eat some Italian food. We do eat here on occasion as we did mid week. The special of the day, king prawn linguine was very nicely cooked, with very fresh prawns. The other half had a pesto chicken panini with fries, again very nice indeed, average oven chips.... More
