I ate here a couple of evenings this week, and experienced consistently good or excellent food. It's a lovely restaurant with a "local" feel to it, even though it is pretty much in central London; the decor is ever so slightly rustic, but not over the top, and lighting is fine for a cosy evening, but also ok if you're dining alone (like me) and want to do the crossword! On my second visit the welcome was warm - nice to feel that a returning diner is recognised.
Food overall was very good; on my first evening I tried the calamari as a starter, which were lovely and tender, with a light coating, although the accompanying chilli sauce was a little sweet for my taste. A main course of vegetarian pizza was very good too...a few nice burnt edges, perfectly cooked in the middle, with lots of tasty vegetables. On the second evening, a starter of stuffed crepes were beautifully executed, and a main of home-made pasta was very tasty. Everything has the feel of having been freshly prepared (I'm sure it is) by someone who cares about what is put on the plate, and takes pride in providing high quality food.
Overall, taking into account very good service, not a hint of up-selling, very good food and reasonable value considering the location (£20-30 for two courses with mineral water, for one), I think this restaurant deserves five stars for this review, and I recommend it to anyone in the area and looking for excellent Italian food.
