“Excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

We have just eaten a delicious meal at this restaurant, beautiful veal and steak and the best tiramisu I have ever eaten, what a shame we were the only customers, they deserve to be full every night!

“Very nice Italian”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

Had a very nice meal here recently, the Gnocchi and the Filetto di Manzo ai Porcini were particularly good. The layout of the place is a bit odd, and there wasn't a lot of atmosphere in the restaurant but the service was fine.

“fillippo's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

Brilliant food, excellent staff, wine list really good too.
No pizzas here, good quality Italian food at a decent price, I have eaten at most Italians in the area and found this one to be very very good. Had a 3 course alacarte evening meal, my partners steak was the best steak she had ever been served, high praise indeed, better than Gaucho's London Bridge which is saying something, and a fraction of the price. I had seafood platter (can't recall exact name) it was cooked perfectly, ask for dipping sauce/condiments of choice -it comes with neither as standard. The puddings are all proper home made and amazing, best Tiramisu I've ever had.
Top little restaurant, give it a go.

“great Italian food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

Simply the best Italian food. Always had the 3 course lunchtime menu for £10.50 it is superb Italian food cooked by Italian's we love it. The service is great and beats the pseudo Italian chains hands down. Bellismo.

“What a pleasant surprise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

Hadn't read about this on TA and hadn't even noticed this restaurant before - although it has been up and running for 8 months now, but was told by friends that it was worth a visit. At first sight it is not at all what I expected and to be honest had I not received a good review of it beforehand it is very unlikely that I would have tried it. The outside appearance is very old fashioned and it almost appears as if it is half takeaway/half restaurant. Despite being empty on a Tuesday evening we gave it a try.
What a pleasant surprise. Service was excellent and friendly. led by Lorenzo, and the food was better than any other Italian Restaurant I have been to in the town. Calamari starter and bruschetta both excellent. Chicken in mushroom sauce and Veal mains also both excellent. Throw in a couple of free limoncellos and a bottle of wine and the evening was exceptionally good value for an excellent meal.
Don't let the name or the appearance put you off - this is a very good place to eat in TW.
