Well worth the visit and I think reasonably priced for the quality of food, drink and service. If you love Italian then definitely go. Been both for lunch (slightly quieter) and dinner (always full with a great vibe) and it's one of my favourite places in Twickenham. Also great to visit in the Summer as they close Church Street to... More

This place use to be good always would get a good meal, we went Sunday night and was only 3 tables. Unfortunately didn't help as the service was a bit rushed. The food was very disappointing ordered a ribeye steak that was overcooked and very salty and the fat chips were hard in the middle and they served an Apple... More

Having eaten at this restaurant a while ago I was surprised that the menu was both uninspiring and expensive on our recent visit. I think a bottle of Montepulciano at £31 is expensive for this style of restaurant. The service was average With plenty of other restaurants to choose from I don't think we will be visiting again for quite... More

We had great expectations for this place and booked prior. On arrival we weren't down for a booking, we were placed in corner next too a drunk couple being very loud and crude. Service was quick, too quick but not good with lack of water refills. Food was very poor, tasteless and bland and executed with little skill. Lastly very... More

Nice ambience and decor, given a good table and the selection looked appetising. However, the food did not live up to the the promise - it was ok (above average) but I had high expectations and hoped for better.

Twickenham is rich with good restaurants and this is my favourite Italian place. Great meat and seafood dishes and wine selection. My husband prefers Manzinello across the road for pizza but the mains are truly special here at Osteria Pulcinella.

I used to go to Pulcinella every week when I worked in Twickenham. This was my first visit for two years as I am now retired. I went with a former colleague. The food was as good as it used to be; the restaurant is pleasant and the service was good. I had my regular spaghetti carbonara with a green... More

I've been here several times in the past couple of years and always found it to be good. The food is tasty and service good.

Poor, over priced microwaved food. Rude staff, Most disappointing evening, don't waste your money My husband and I bravely sat outside last night for an early dinner. I dont believe there were any customers inside but there may have been a few. There were certainly plenty of waiting staff so we at least expected attentive service Our first waiter was... More
