First time in the Twickenham area on a business trip and I found this little gem! Great service, great food, great atmosphere. Didn't disappoint!

Warm friendly restaurant , highly recommend the gnocchi , which as vegetarian was as near to exotic as it gets in a restaurant , the bread was heavenly served with oil and olives , waiters and waitresses all very efficient and friendly , hope to visit again

My parents were visiting so we booked a table Saturday night after hours of walking around London so it was much anticipated. The setting was lovely and the restaurant has a lovely ambience. We ordered the second cheapest red wine and it was yummy. Re food we had the chicken penne which was fairly plain and could have done with... More

This is where we go regularly. Birthdays, anniversaries, friends, just a couple of us, whatever - just about all occasions really. I've been there twice in the last two weeks, once with a friend and then with the family. It's a well run place with friendly staff and reliable food. There are staples which underpin the changes in the menu... More

I quite like this place and especially enjoy when they have rabbit on the menu, but my wife other couples we dine with find the menu a bit limited and specific for their taste. The wine list is not stunning, but reasonable choices are available, more so in the reds than the whites.

A restaurant that always seems to be busy. That's got be a good sign. No surprises on the main but it has a good range of italian staples - something for everyone - and it always seems to come out quickly and consistently. Buzzy, busy, lively and informal. But at the same time slightly intimate. All in all nicely balanced.... More

Went for dinner last night with my partner - was busy for a Monday night and noisy because of it. Menu was expensive (£12 for a bowl of pasta), and food was fairly average - my partner's penne was tasty but my rigatoni was underwhelming with rubbery bits of shaved pecorino. House wine wasn't very good either. Service was ok... More

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
