Called in on spec for lunch. Ordered bread and olives and followed this with two pasta dishes. Staff were attentive throughout our meal. Pasta was excellent. Great value. We were transported back to Italy. This is a little gem.

Went to this restaurant after a rugby match at Twickenham and it was a nice hot evening so could sit outside in the street which was good. The service was good along with the food and ice cream for pudding was great and a very nice meal with good service and at a nice cost will come back again

Just a random Saturday, no Rugby, and the restaurant busy but not full. Ordered bread - needed to ask again. Asked for butter - had to go to counter to ask again. Starter fine but took ages for main course. Asked for bill - twice - nothing. Got up to leave and waited for a minute to see if they... More

Having been to Pulcinella on several occasions over the years, I felt that I had to contribute to the remarks already made, having just written a review of another restaurant not too far away. The food here is consistently delicious and of high quality. The location is quite intimate, though it can be somewhat claustrophobic when crowded, largely because of... More

I am very local to Church Street and always love an excuse to eat at the Pulcinela. Last week I was with two old friends for a rare dinner together as one lives in California and was here for a rare visit She is vegetarian so she was over the moon with the range of food on offer for her.... More

Great food, great service and great price. What more can I say?! Whether it's evening meal or lunch, it's easy and comfortable. My son especially loves the seafood pasta.

I have been going to the Osteria for years and it continues to be fantastic! The food is fantastic! I can NOT understand some of the negative reviews as we have been going for years and it has always been very very very good!!

What fantastic food and lovely people! Excellent value for money too. The beef carpaccio starter was really good, as was the lightly fried seafood. The lamb main course was beautifully cooked with the meat being succulent and tender. The trout was also really good and was presented in a really impressive way. The wine list draws heavily, but not exclusively,... More

I have been to this restaurant twice and both times it has been disappointing. It is always busy and has good reviews which made me think the first time we were just unlucky but no such chance! The food is bland and over priced...nice house wine, one nice starter and good service but that was it. I wouldn't risk this... More

I used to go to Pulcinella once a week until I stopped working in Twickenham four years ago. This was my first visit since then. It has not changed and is still very good. We were greeted warmly and served quickly. We had two different pastas, Penne Arrabbica and Spaghetti Carbonara with one green salad between two...which was quite enough.... More
