Warm atmosphere on arrival.

Here on my own whilst in London on business. They were still happy to accommodate me and allow me to use my taste card which first got me through the door.
The food was fantastic, I had a cured beef starter and a wild boar ravioli for my main. Both were well cooked and seasoned. My desert was a fruit cheesecake which was exactly the right flavour to cleanse the palate.

Service was a little slow, however this was due to it being pretty busy and not the waitress, she was great and kept smiling! Almost every table taken and there was only the one waitress. I would have probably had an extra peroni or too if they were more available!

A great experience and next time I stay nearby I will definitely visit again and bring colleagues.

I've eaten at Italina many times and have always been impressed. I have not eaten Italian food as good as this anywhere else in London, and the atmosphere is unique to the city. If you like restaurants with distant waiting staff and the impression that more has been spent on the interior design than the food, do not come here. It's a small and simple venue, but the atmosphere is still great, largely due to the welcoming waiting staff and nearby kitchen. Really worth a try, wherever you are in London. And if you live nearby and haven't been, you're missing out on a local gem.
