I dined here about a month ago by myself on a Saturday night. Sometimes when you are dining alone you end up being ignored or put in a table in the corner or near the toilets! I was given a lovely table in the heart...More

We were looking for somewhere to eat on a wet evening. We spotted this restaurant and identified it as a traditional Italian with proper table cloths, well dressed staff and an intimate atmosphere. The food was lovely and the staff were friendly. Recommended.

A good dinner after a concert. Excellent liver + dessert with nice wines. It's good to have a small, good quality, Italian eatery in the City and convenient for offices and transport. I'll be visiting again I'm sure.

Intimate and charming, the food is just amazing and the staff is kind. An authentic and unique small Italian place in Barbican, London. And at fair prices.

The food and wine were delicious. We had the set menu for £29.50 and started with a glass of prosecco - I'm not a fan of prosecco but this was delicate and sparkly and light. The starters were perfect and our main courses a delight...More

Owing to its proximity to Smithfield Market – the site
of an ancient meat market which remains in operation
today – Clerkenwell boasts a plethora of globally
renowned restaurants, fabulous local eateries, and
some of London's favorite pubs. This isn't merely a
focal point for all things foodie though. Spend enough
time wondering through the area's maze of streets and
you might become accustomed to the litany of slinky
