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

"Warm, friendly, simpatico" characterize Osteria Pulcinella in historic Church Street, Twickenham. A visit is a must for those seeking a special dinner for two, or a family celebration. A menu reflecting its Italian/Mediterranean roots ensures quality with taste buds on overtime! An occasion to be savored in the memory. It will bring you back to dine al fresco in the... More

My family and I came here to celebrate my daughter's birthday. There is a really nice feel about the place with it being cosy and welcoming. The food was very good value for the price and as we travel a lot to Italy we found it really authentic. The waiting staff were very attentive and when they knew that it... More

I have been to this place few times with my friend and once quite recently. The food was great, staff were very attentive and service was very fast. I have recommended this place to my friends and colleagues and no one was disappointed.

We love the breakfasts in this cute little Italian so we thought we'd try lunch with friends. It was late December and it was very busy but they still found us a table. The waiter serving us wasn't particularly friendly but the food was delicious, filling and extremely good value. To start we had a bruschetta, a couple of mini-chorizo's... More

When this place is at the top of it's game, it can deliver high quality food and excellent service. I just find it frustratingly inconsistent and when it doesn't come up to scratch it is an expensive experience. Certainly worth a try but I personally prefer the Masaniello opposite.

. Many Italian restaurants seem to be staffed by people from not-Italy. Not so the Osteria Pulcinella, where the Italian accents are matched only by the Italian smiles. Fast service. Good quality meals. Very reasonable prices. What's not to like? And attractive interior to match the quaint exterior. People were pouring in from the nearby Council Offices for their lunch-time...

I have been eating at this restaurant for many years both lunch time and in the evening and it became known as 'my favourite Italian'! We took some friends there just before Christmas as they live in the country and actually requested that we return there. We had a very disappointing evening. I booked the table about four weeks ahead... More

A regular haunt of mine.Friendly local Italian with good food and nice selection of wines.Not fancy,but always good and a warm welcome from the staff,who often dispense free Limoncello at the end of the meal.

Visited this restaurant with my partner for a quiet meal. The restaurant is intimate which is nice, the food was really nice and we thought good value. My only complaint would be the fact we were squashed into a corner sitting at a tiny table where we struggled to.fit both our plates and glasses. Apart from this I would recommend... More
