    Excellent restaurant. Two friends and I always choose it when we meet up in London. Very close to Waterloo station, so easy for us to get back our far flung homes! Really friendly staff. Always a handshake and a smile when we arrive. Superb pasta and sauces, beautifully cooked.

    Wonderful place. Some friends and I have eaten here several times. The pasta is offered in shapes rarely seen in other Italian restaurants and is cooked to perfection. The sauces are an absolute delight. Pizzas are beautifully put together with a thin base and excellent toppings. The only negative point is it's really difficult to get a drink when you're seated. The person who shows you to your table won't take drinks orders and the table staff seem to take ages to get to you.

    Nice food, not the usual over-long menu of bog-standard Italian dishes, but a smaller selection of freshly cooked dishes full of flavour & individual. Also a nice selection of cocktails & wines to order. Service was good & friendly. Our only complaint was that the plates should have been warmed up, as our mains got cold very quickly.

    Great location for County Hall, as we were going to the theatre. We both had fish dishes, salmon and seabass both lovely, and desert didn't disappoint either, I had the chocolate fondant.

    Visited before seeing Witness for the Prosecution at County Hall and entrance is literally across the road. Was very busy but no wait for reservation. Pre theatre menu very reasonable at £15 for one course and a small glass of wine or beer. Reasonable menu selection and food very good - both had tasty pasta dishes

    Was served well, attentive and polite. There was some difficulty with the pizza oven, making the time for pizzas longer than usual; however this did not detract from the evening and was still a overall good meal.

    Excellent Italian restaurant! The menu is varied -- ranging from pizzas through pastas and full mains. Everything we tried from the pizza to the pastas was fantastic. Great service and a "neighborhood restaurant" vibe. We have been there three times on visits to London.
