Lovely cheerful service, and the food was delightful. It was our second time there and there will be a third. Proper Italian food with amazing sauces!

Rich flavours can be found in pasta delicacies like homemade fresh egg tagliatelle with veal meatballs, porcini and chestnut mushrooms, cream, chilli and parmesan, while the pan-fried lamb fillets are served in a walnut and pistachio crust. There are also lighter bites that are perfect to share, including salmon carpaccio served with micro herbs and quail eggs.

    Really good experience all round. We were seated upstairs and it was lovely and bright. Food was very good, everything fresh, tasty, well cooked and nicely presented. Good portion sizes too, we all had 3 courses and were stuffed afterwards. Staff were friendly and the service was good. I wouldn't recommend here if you are in a rush for lunch, but I believe it's the kind of place and meal that is best if you take some time to enjoy. In addition, we were there for my wife's birthday and the staff bought her dessert with a candle and sang Happy Birthday to her (albeit slightly out of tune : -) ) which was a really nice touch. Booking was easy via Bookatable and was able to use my Tastecard also.

    A warm and personal greeting, followed by attentive but not overbearing service.Food quake here is very high. My guest had Carpaccio of Octopus and I had Mixed lightly battered and fried seafood to start. Both agree it was fresh and tasty. We both chose the pan fried cod for main, a chunky fresh filet on a bed of pea mash topped with crispy carrots. Delicious.

    We were on a roll so we went for dessert to, guest had an old favourite which had net been seen for years, a rum baba while I enjoyed three scoops of Italian ice cream - great selection of flavours btw.

    Red wine - Primitivo - dark and tasy. To round off we decided to try a Grappa only to be amazed that there was a Grappa menu! Fantastic!

    Excellent atmosphere and service. The food was equisite, truly authentic Italian cuisine. Flavorful, delicious and the olives were the best I've ever had. If you're in London, make a point to dine here and they will not disappoint!!

    Great food, friendly staff, and a genuine atmosphere. Not a chain or "just another Italian"

    Food and service was very good, sat upstairs and as it was hot it was very warm there. Air conditioning not working too well. The food was fantastic. It was fresh and served at a moderate pace, which was good. One drawback was the starter where my guest ordered calamari without the anchovies and king prawns, I ordered the same starter however mine did not come with the anchovies and king prawn either so a light miscommunication.
