I have lost count of the number of times we have eaten here over the last five years! We try others but always come back. It's like going to visit friends for dinner. Always welcoming. Fantastic atmosphere. Warm n cosy in the winter, light and airy and open to the garden in the summer. Relaxed. Extensive menu. Lovely, lovely staff and quality of food good. Largely Italian clientele probably because touristy type foreigners prefer your typically small trattoria restaurant in a village or town. Battibecco is not that! As in most Italian restaurants the price varies significantly depending on whether you just have a pizza or pasta or go for the more expensive meat or fish main course. Dont go here if you have noisy, badly behaved children who can't sit still - the Italian children all know how to behave in restaurants ! Or if you are used to typically English type Italian food. This is a place for those who love Italy and want to be part of real Italian life, and are prepared to make the effort.
