We visited this restaurant and their sister one in Prince Street and were delighted with both! The food was NOT your typical Italian, but more inventive & creative. Many of the starters were made to share so we could all get a taste of everything. The wine list was good, and although on the first night we visited they didn't have my husband's favourite Sardinian one they recommended an alternative which was just as good. The welcome was good and friendly, the service really attentive and personal and the quality of the food superb. Visit this place and experience it for yourself but make sure you have booked first as it is very small and popular.

This cosy little restaurant in Soho has the potential of being the neighbourhood gem that other reviewers seem to find it. The premises are nice (although a bit cramped), the athmosphere is good and the music is suitable to set the scene. I did however feel a bit like an alien. As much as this is a neighbourhood restaurant, I got the feeling it was a restaurant for friends of the staff. The service was ok, but it was provided by someone that was just doing their job, not by someone who wanted me to return another day. As for the food, the grilled meatballs were really good, whilst the seafood pasta was just an average pasta dish.

My wife and I wandered in late to this cute spot on a very snowy and chilly night last week...Lively crowd in spite of the weather..so glad to see pasta and sardines on the menu.....drank some wine...warmed up a bit and upon ordering was informed there were no sardines....now i think maybe the waiter might have said something beforehand...but who orders sardines???..so once i got over my sardine tantrum we had the nicest meal...and the server...Davide.... made a wonderfui comeback..the pastas were great.....and dessert was delicious...and we stayed and had after dinner drinks and coffees until just about midnight..wound up being a really memorable experience....not at all formal or stuffy...but friendly and tasty.....and the snow looked beautiful.....we'll definitely be back
