Just off of the Holloway Road and down the street from Arsenal's stadium, is a relatively undiscovered Italian restaurant serving incredible food at a crazy low price. Cooked fresh, right in front of you, they're perfect for breakfast, lunch, dinner and any other excuse you can think of to nip in for a bite to eat. The owner, head chef... More

OMG. Why do more people not know about this place? A real neighbourhood gem with delicious food, cosy atmosphere and home-style cooling. I feel like Mama Nona must be out the back preparing dishes with secret recipes handed down to her from generations before. And you know what else? It's cheap! Freshly prepared with delicious ingredients. I've been here 3... More

I went into this place with low expectations and found some of the best food I've ever had in my life. It's just one old Italian guy who takes your order then goes roll you some pizza dough and make you the most incredible pizza you'll ever have. The pasta is amazing too. The salads not so much but that's... More

The place is small and basic, but don't let the look let turn you away. It really worth coming in. The selection is certainly not wide, but it is real home made, freshly and beautifully. The staff is actually Italian, so you get real authentic food. Highly recommended!

We were on the way to The Emirates and after looking at Trip Advisor booked a table. It is small and a little basic, the choice limited but that does not matter as the food is excellent, freshly made and tasty. Beware that (it was a match day) there is no alcohol, but we were told there is a Tesco... More

We were heading to Emirates stadium and happen to see this little Italian cafe. We ordered rissotto and meatball spaghetti. The presentation is nice and food is yummy!!! Will definitely come back again.

Five of us went for dinner after a match at the Emirates. The patron and family are very nice and friendly, the food was good authentic italian/sicilian. We had spaghetti meatballs, bolognese, ravioli, penne with chicken, all good, and some delicious deserts too. It wasn't licensed on the day we went (they apply for a licence on some days) but...
