I'd seen this place for ages as it's near a bus stop I use, and thought: "Oh, there's ANOTHER Italian Restaurant." All the same, something about it made it seem worth exploring. As soon as we had set foot in there, for my mum's birthday meal, the very kind and welcoming staff made us feel like it was the right thing to do, and one bite of my appetiser - the traditional bruschetta - was enough to make me sure that whoever was in the kitchen was and is extremely talented. I've now been three times, and took my girlfriend there which was perfect. Best dish is the spaghetti al cartoccio, with their homemade pasta instead of spaghetti. It's pasta and seafood wrapped up in foil and cooked in a white wine sauce - a real Neapolitan dish that I recognise from holidays to the Amalfi Coast, but had never seen in London before. You have to try it, and their other dishes too. I also recommend their "girasole" - a homemade ravioli filled with smoked salmon, though this was a daily special, so won't necessarily be there for your first visit. The owner's wife also bakes delicious cakes for dessert.
