I've been here once and was seated downstairs. I was a bit put out as I was waiting for someone else and was the only person in the room - but worry not, it soon filled up!

Good hearty, traditional Italian food. The calzone was delish and the parfait was one of the best desserts I've had in ages. Recommended!

Pizza was ok, but service lets this restaurant down. Waiters are disrespectful, even aggressive with customers. The bill comes split between "meal" and "beverages", so you do not really know if you are being charged correctly. the only element we could check was the service charge, which was higher than the customary 12.5%.
There are better value restaurants in the area, where you will not feel as if you are annoying the personnel.

This place was recommended by a British-Italian chap and we had great expectations. He billed it as the 'best Italian restaurant in the Hampstead area'.

I've been to this restaurant with two sets of people, and on both occasions the food was average. On the second occasion we turned up 15 minutes early and were 'greeted' by a rather rude waitress (no, we couldn't possibly order now and then return in 15 minutes). The pizza is passable but one gets the feeling that the team aren't trying too hard. My friend's pasta dish was also so-so.

La Smorfia in West Hampstead is much better: friendly, consistent and delicious. We won't come back to Sarracino, despite it being on our doorstep.

We have been living in the UK for 6 months and were dying to eat real Italian pizza. Sarracino met all our expectations! Had a very good wood fire oven - cooked pizza an excellent bottle of white wine . The menu, although we didn't try any other dish reflect the genuine recepies you find in Italy.
Also the waitress and the Manager were also very polite and professional.
Will be back again to taste everythIng else :)

We read the reviews and decided to try this place to get pizza delivered. They arrived quickly but when we opened the boxes we were sad to see the poor quality of the toppings, including canned mushrooms, very poor quality ham and one very dry leaf of basil ( when the menu says the pizza has basil on it I expect a bit more, one leaf doesn't count as a topping, that's decoration!) For pizzas costing nearly 9 quid, the least I would expect is for the ingredients to be fresh. Needless to say we will not go back.
