Consistently one of the best restaurants in London. The chef Marzio is a lovely man who is very chatty and always makes you feel very welcome. The hardest part is choosing what to eat as there are so many delicious propositions from both the menu and the ever changing specials. Also a great place to take children

This place used to be my local Italian, and I couldn't say enough great things about it. Brilliant service, authentic and flavoursome Italian food and such a nice atmosphere. My mum said she had her "best ever" pasta here. It's usually busy so worth booking in advance and for good reason, you can't go wrong!

This has become me and my parents favourite restaurant in London! An Italian friend too me years ago and it was a good sign that it's full of Italians. I've never been disappointed - I've tried so many of the dishes and they've all been exceptional. My favourites are the burrata and prosciutto starter, the pumpkin ravioli, the pear and... More

It is a small restaurant on the high street but always fully booked. The food is genuine and fresh. The staff is friendly and welcoming and you can see also the chef often going through the tables chatting with the customers. The menu offers different choices of pasta, meat and fish. I have tried the monkfish, but the octopus and... More

Enjoyable weekday set lunch, I had the grilled goats cheese on a plentiful pile of green beans, simply scrummy, followed by pan fried cod on a bed of puy lentils marvellous. My husband had the dried cured fennel and herb infused ham followed by the Italian sausage rigatoni which he said had a great combination of flavours. Pudding we opted... More

We went with a group of friends on a Saturday night. The place was busy which is a good sign and the service was ok. Not top notch though as they were slow taking the drinks orders. The food arrived fast enough though and the timings between the courses was perfect. We didn't feel rushed as you do in some... More

Fresh Italian food served in a relaxed and cozy atmosphere. Lots of daily special and an amazing-for-value set lunch available Monday to Friday! Great wine-list covering from the classic Barolo to the rarer Pecorino wine from Marches.
