Eaten here multiple occasions, weeknights/lunch and weekends. Summer/winter- it's a good night out- though we wouldn't got there for an 'ordinary meal' from a price perspective. Versatile place for lots of different occasions, Carpaccio (starter) and Crespelle (main) are standouts- but it's all pretty good. I like the Moretti on tap too. With piano/singer and a decent bottle of red sitting in the bar area, hard to better for a good meal in Teddington. Garden is nothing special but still nicer than anywhere within walking distance. Priced well beyond the upper reaches of everything else on the high street but quality of ingredients and service are worth it I think.

Ate in the lovely garden on a lovely day: very pleasant location. Warm welcome but pleasant staff became a bit hassled as it got busy and keen that you don't overstay at the table - a tad oppressive. Food, including kids' menu, good - very fresh Mozzarella, excellent Orzo with summer truffle - and far from overpriced. Chips delivered much later than rest of order - they had forgotten them. Not perfect but recommended.

Shambles is a delightful family run Italian restaurant in Teddington High Street. The food is very good, the atmosphere is friendly and the beautiful garden at the back of the restaurant is a charming surprise

We were booked into this restaurant by family, who live locally, as they had heard good reviews about it. The food was excellent, the staff were very friendly and the atmosphere was very relaxed. They have a very talented pianist who's repertoire seemed unlimited and kept us entertained without overpowering our conversation. This is an ideal place for a celebration meal for a special occasion, a little pricey for every day but ideal for a treat. I have no doubt that next time we're in Teddington we will enjoy another meal here. I can definitely recommend it.

We spent a very enjoyable Christening Party in the garden yesterday. The food was excellent, as usual, and the staff were so friendly.

Thank you for making the day so special. Looking forward to our next visit.
