I have been many times to L’Italiana and never been disappointed. Whether it is for a quick daytime pizza or, as this last time, a meet with friends in the evening for dinner, the food is always excellent. The service is really pleasant, nothing pushy...More

It's quite a small restaurant, but they do have 2 areas. I'm sure if you book in advance they could block off an area. They are lovely people and the food is top class.
