I think this has to be my favourite little Italian. It’s so much nicer than any of the big chains; the food is great, the staff are so friendly and it’s really good value for money (£5-6 for a massive bowl of pasta). I always leave very happy!

The thing I like most is that they are really accommodating and will make anything you fancy (something I definitely take advantage of) and they never bat an eyelid when I ask for the parmesan to be left on the table so I can help myself throughout the meal.
They also do take away (as far as I know, collection only) which means that if you fancy staying in for the night you can have a delicious authentic pizza in the house rather than paying lots more for a greasy takeaway.

The only downside is that it’s about a minute from my house so I get tempted by the yummy food quite often, but hey when it’s only a fiver, it’s hardly breaking the bank!

I have worked in Kentish town for years and saw a sign for pasta and a drink for six pounds, considering cost of food around this area I thought I would try it. I had the Penne Rossella which had lovely chilli's in it and was really tasty. The portion was nice and the flavours were lovely. Was nice to get some proper Italian food for Lunch and I will be back a lot more often. I saw some other dishes for the evening and may go again for an evening meal.

Will definetly reccomend

I like the fact that it is local and authentic restaurant as opposed to the chains which are taking over London that don't really care or provide a value added service. Welcoming decor which my girlfriend found romantic. Can see it being good with friends too..esp for the price

The food is fantastic and very reasonably priced.

All the staff are very attentive and friendly, and can easily accommodate any special requests.

It has a very calm and homely atmosphere which you do not find in near by chain restaurants.

It's is a must for any food lover.

Great quality food, really accommodating to everyone's needs and tastes. Excellent value for money! Gelato is to die for! A real hidden gem! The owner and staff could not be friendlier and make you feel part of the family as soon as you sit down. A must visit for take away or eat in.
