“Four stars”
Reviewed October 31, 2013

This was my first visit to Il Mascalzone - business lunch.

The service was friendly and helpful and the food arrived promptly. It was tasty, but my pasta was undercooked, not quite 'al dente', which is where they lost a star.

I would definitely eat there again.

“Grest startes and large portions”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

Very reasonably priced, great choice of food, starters are really good in fact the starters are so good that I rarely have fully appreciated the mains because portion sizes are healthy.

This place is always busy at weekends and the staff are really friendly. Definitely top 3 Italian's in the vicinity.

“Love this restaurant just could do a little better to hold on to their customers...”
Reviewed July 28, 2013 via mobile

Overall this is a good restaurant, the food is really good and not over priced however I did give them a 4 for value and that is because they charge you £10 to bring a cake that you bought yourself out... its ridiculous, if I was them I would be embarrassed to tell the customer thay especially as there was quite a few people spending money in there... anyways took cake and did it at home... I gave service a 4 as that could also be a bit better.

Reviewed May 11, 2013 via mobile

I had been to this pizza and pasta joint and I must say I was not impressed the service was rubbish and the food I have no words to say.
And the service they provide for birthday parties priceless please enquire before booking table they DO NOT book a tables and bring your own cafe they charge £10 just so u can use there fridge!!!


So over all
Poor not ever going again

“Excellent meal, large portions”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

Located in the centre of Edgware, this place seems highly popular and was very crowded early on a Saturday evening. Nonetheless, we only waited 10 minutes or so before being seated by the friendly staff.

The resataurant has an extensive menu of pastas, pizza and many other kinds of Italian food. I enjoyed an excellent gnocchi. Look out also for the tremendous home made ice cream as displayed in the revolving drum in the centre of the restaurant.

Be warned, it can get quite noisy so probably not the place for a first date etc. Highly recommended though, the food is excellent.
