Thoughtfully Cooked, Well Presented

We dropped in without a reservation, but were accommodated althought the restaurant was very busy. Food was beautifully cooked and presented. I had the liver which was very tasty. Do try it. The wine was reasonably priced. Will be going back again.

I have always thought the service was excellent but have had 2 disappointing lunches in a row. I think the chefs have taken their eye off the ball. Went for lunch with my husband and ordered a well done burger. It was red pretty much throughout and very un appetizing . It was returned but by this time my husband... More

It was my birthday and my family and I always like to go to an Italian restaurant. None of us had been here before and we decided to give it a go! In our group the age ranged from 20 to 74!! The atmosphere was lovely and the staff, especially our waiter (shame I don't remember his name, we were... More

My partner and I visited the Osteria Pulcinella restaurant with our 4 young children whilst on a short visit to Twickenham. It was recommended by a friend, and a last minute booking on a Saturday night. The staff were just wonderful, they made us feel very welcome and fussed over our children and gave them gift packs to keep them... More

Simple amazing! I'm finding it hard to think of anything critical to say about this restaurant. The candle lit decor gives you an intimate and romantic dining experience. The food quality is up there with some of London's Michelin-starred restaurants. Every meal we ordered was simply amazing. The staff were very polite and attentive. The cost is slightly higher than... More

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.
