Really enjoyable 3 course meal before the game. Have to book many weeks in advance to secure a table, especially for big groups but that is standard in Twickenham anyway. This visit was particularly good. At £50 a head it's not cheap but the atmosphere is good and for a very busy day the staff cope very well. As a... More

Went after the rugby at twickenham, fitted us in without a booking despite being busy. Food is good although probably could have done with some veg with the meal and had to wait a little for one main course. Although got a complimentary drink. Considering the day we went overall good and staff were excellent.

Four of us ate here with my wife and I ordering a chicken pasta dish. One with a creamy sauce and one with the menu mushroom sauce but they couldn't tell the difference when they brought them to our table. Our friends meals had came 5 minutes before so we asked them to start before us. My wifes pasta dish... More

Came here for lunch. Great fresh Italian food. Very tasty. Can sit out in the summer. Well worth a visit.

Used to have lunch here when I worked in Twickenham, but haven't eaten in the evening for years. Decided to try it after an early cinema showing in Richmond, and SO pleased we did. Food was top notch (particularly the rump of lamb), service was friendly and timely, wine was lovely ... and it didn't break the bank! Definitely worth... More

The food, the service, the wine, everything is great about this restaurant. The staff are so personable and the food is incredibly fresh. The restaurant has a really old Italian feel and is well decorated. I recommend visiting in the summer and taking advantage of the alfresco dining. The risotto is my personal favourite. It's so fresh and filling. Definitely... More

We stopped in here on a Saturday lunchtime with no expectations. The staff were nice a friendly. We both ordered paninis, one steak, the other vegetarian. Great food and great value for money.

Great little restaurant with friendly staff and a quality menu. The food was delicious. I can highly recommend the nutella gnocchi for desert. It is insanely good!

You can't beat their cappuccino or the wonderful friendly staff, but also they have a menu that gets the restaurant busy at lunchtime when we enjoy the roasted vegetables in a ciabatta. See you soon.

We went here when the weather was lovely and could sit out on the street which was really lovely (the road is pedestrianised in the summer) however the restaurant was really busy which meant we were waiting a while and the food wasn't amazing- my crab pasta wasn't great at all but my boyfriends lamb Ravi was really good.
