One of the finest restaurents in town!

Visited here twice in a four day visit to London , both times for lunch , there was an excellent menu choice and similar wine list all for very reasonable prices. If you are in this area , don't look in and think its nice , it is really nice , staff helpful and charming.

This place is always reliable - excellent pasta and prices reasonable. Lovely in the high summer when you can sit outside on Church Street and watch the world go by. Can be noisy so if with elderly people, ask for a quiet table...

This is possibly one of the best Italian restaurants I've been to in the UK after spending 5 months living in Italy. Authentic. Fresh. Delicious.

Have visited twice one and had indifferent food. Yesterday others around seemed to have had delicious items. Second time had banana crepes where the bananas were like rubber - as if they had been microwaved for too long. Very disappointed that the staff did not notice that they were shrivelled up, nor did they check that "all was ok". Might... More
