We thing of this place as our Northfields food Mecca. If you do not call before 6pm, you will struggle to get a table at this much sought after dinner place. The owners and servers are both wonderfully attentive and provide nightly specials based on seasonal produce. For a taste of Italy in a great cosy setting (and without the big name pricing) Come to this place!

The menu is classic italian with some twists. There were a few daily specials which we went for, very tasty and fresh. The main courses are mainly pasta, first courses are salads and the usual bruschettas, anti pasti etc, but all of a very high authentic quality. We had to wait a while for the mains, but thats the nature of the small informal restaurant where the chef cooks to order, so I'd rather wait than have something not so Fresh. A la carte menu is not expensive but not cheap either, just right. Will be going back to try the set menu which looks like great value.

The restaurant itself is in a room behind the Italian deli, informal small and casual, not really a place to dress up to go to, but a Great place for a date or a good meal with friends.

Great meal. Good range of starters, lots of unusual (and delicious) pasta dishes, well the two we had were delicious, the octopus salad was fantastic too! Service faultless and house wine reasonably priced and good.

Three of us ate here one evening. We tried a variety of dishes and enjoyed all of them. One of our party lives in Italy and is not easily impressed - but he was this time! There was a set menu of two courses for £10.95 which we considered a really good deal, especially given the quality of the food. (Not sure if they offer this every evening - we went on a Thursday). The total cost was pricey because we did not check the cost of the wine we had chosen...and we drank two bottles because it was so good! Good service even though it was full - make a reservation towards the end of the week.
