The place looks nice and there were plenty of room . The food is not great but alright and not expensive for London standards. Service was OK.

This is the forth time (travelling from Scotland) that I have been to this restaurant. And it's still the best Italian I have ever been to to (and non-Italian!). We got two complimentary Lemoncellos. Great service, food and prices. Hope to be back again next year.

If you're Vegan in Camden you HAVE to get the vegan pizza here! Complete with amazing vegan cheese!! Excellent base and just the right amount of toppings. Great location.. Perfect for sitting out front on a sunny day. Friendly staff also.
