“Not disappointed!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013 via mobile

We took friends here at the weekend and we had a fantastic evening! The menu is extensive and very reasonably priced! The specials were impressive...the duck & pancetta salad - delightful! The real show stopper was the fillet steak! I have dined in many top restaurants and can honestly say, this steak was as good if not better! The price was certainly much more agreeable! This was all washed down with a bottle of the finest red wine (family owned of course!) can't wait to return here!!!

“Authentic, tasty, cheap and friendly!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

I'm addicted to this restaurant! I went in for afternoon pizza as I was walking by, and have been back for the pasta, the veal, the salmon, and just to try all the starters simultaneously. It is really reasonable for the high quality you get. Price range is great from 2.50 up to 13.50 (starters to Specials), with generous portions.

Staff are all very friendly, welcoming and happy to help pick wine or food. There is wine from the owner's family, as well as the family Limoncello. The restaurant is always busy (a great sign!) and the wine is affordable and very tasty. The gelato is verrry tasty, and they are always changing the flavours (so maybe it is made inhouse?)

Brilliant place to go for a big gathering or an intimate date.

“Tremendous trattoria”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

Everything they said is true: this is THE traditional, tremendous trattoria one is always looking for. The food was superb - really first class cooking, and the service would have done credit to the finest restaurant's in London - in fact better because it was really friendly and completely unstuffy. It all looks so unpretentious - just a great family-run trattoria of the best sort - with wonderful family wine!

“Great food, great service, great atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

The menu is not just pizza and pasta, which makes for a nice change! We had a range of starters, including a plate of antipasto - cold meats, mozzarella, roasted peppers, olives - gorgeous. All the dishes were generous, aside from one - the funghi ripieni - but all were tasty and well presented. The ice-cream wins the day though - proper Italian gelato. So rich in flavour and creamy... we had hazelnut, pistachio and vanilla with chocolate chips (I can't remember the Italian name). Beats shop-bought ice-cream every time.

The service was great, very nice Italian staff, very friendly, cheerful and relaxed. It all makes for a lovely atmosphere and there was no rushing us at all - really nice.
