Visited yesterday lunch time, we had whole place for ourselves, which I usually do not like, this somehow is a bad hint for me. Anyways, food was good, not the best Italian I ever had, but ok. The reason they lost points is the staff. I think our server happen to be the manager or owner, something like that. He just made a show of himself, how cool and good he is, walking forth and back while making not necessary remarks, counting minutes until end of the shift loudly. I work in the food industry and this was just scary, shouting out loud our order, complaining how he has low nicotine level right now. But hello, I am your customer, I do not care if you had your smoke break yet. And other part was, we booked day before stating that we use Tastecard (50% of food bill), however, at the end of the lunch we only got 20% discount. This is totally unacceptable, but we just did not want to argue with that guy and make a scene. Not coming back, there are more restaurants around.

I actually like the food here. But how can cook a thick chicken breast in ten minutes, fill it and put on the breadcrumbs in ten minutes? And say you serve fresh food? This restaurant was filled with people two years ago, my last visit in London. We walked past it at around eight last Friday and Saturday and there was an almost empty restaurant there...

A family owned Italian restaurant with great food. I had the lasagna and others had a specialty pizza. Nice ambience. Many locals. They make you feel part of the family.

I've been to this restaurant a few times over the years and it has always been very good, but this time it was simply excellent. There were 7 of us and the service was just superb from the minute we were welcomed into the restaurant to the minute we left. Great starters, great main courses, excellent wine, wonderful deserts all served with a smile. We were so impressed we asked the chef to come out so we could thank him and ask him to have a drink with us. We aim to be back again as soon as possible.
