My partner and I decided to go out relatively late, about 9ish locally in chiswick and I was delighted to think of this little place tucked away from the main road. Always walked passed it but somehow never quite made it there and Italian food not often my first place of choice. But now that has all changed. Now and... More

Average food. Terrible service. Homemade pasta was nice but totally lacking in flavour. We were on the mezzanine. They forgot we were there.

A tiny family-run restaurant in Elliott Road, just off Chiswick High Road. Probably seats no more than 40 people, including a couple of tables under a plastic awning outside. I had an excellent seafood with tagliatelle. I can't remember what my partner had, but it was very good. We both followed with A delicious pistachio cremosa. I love this place,... More

We went to this restaurant for lunch, having looked at it previously for dinner, but there was no room. It is very tiny so probably best to book for the evening. Although small and a little cramped the food was delicious. We both opted for the lunchtime special of one or two courses with a drink which was excellent value.... More

I love this place. We stumbled across it after visiting Chiswick's Chinese lantern festival. We prefer not to choose chains restaurants, so this was ideal. Staff were very friendly and welcoming from start to finish, despite my indecisiveness! The food was fresh, high quality and delicious. We really enjoyed watching the chef cook too. I was extremely impressed with the... More

It's a homely and confortable small italian restaurant. It is not a restaurant franchise. You can see the kitchen & chefs; they are Italians. They cook very well. It is not easy to find original Italian restaurants in UK. Almost of them only have their names Italian. If you know italian cousine, don't miss it. If you don't know that... More

After visiting the Magic Lantern festival at Chiswick House we tried the standard chain restaurants as we walked back to the tube, but no tables for 3 were available ... We then saw a small Italian flag down a side road. It was a very small restaurant, so we did not hold out much hope - 15 minutes the friendly... More

This is an excellent, tiny, authentic pizzeria that feels like too good to share with anyone else. Great value and very tasty food. A great place for a quick bite.

Wanted something other than pub grub on Xmas eve. Family living locally have been wanting to try this restaurant and it certainly didn't disappoint. Lovely authentic atmosphere. Service attentive but not overpowering. The food generous and beautifully cooked. Great seafood. Absolutely recommend for great Italian
