The ambience was classic Italian, it was busy and authentic. The food was amazing especially the garlic bread that we had whilst we perused the menu! Definitely you should book your table as otherwise you probably won’t get in especially on Friday and Saturday nights!

This a great Italian and not a pizza in sight! It can be a bit squashed but this tends to add to the atmosphere. Very efficient service and food really well presented. Very tasty too.

A taste of Italy tucked away in a quiet London cul de sac. Everything was good and am going again later this week.

This place is a little gem. Very nice atmosphere and ambiance. Together with a friendly welcome got things off to a good start. I had the sardines which were gorgeous. And followed by beautifully cooked chicken. Excellent wine list.

This traditional Italian restaurant, reputed as “A village restaurant in the heart of London”, prides itself on its 'family run' feel yet maintains an air of professionalism when it comes to the service and the authenticity of the food. It feels like home – if Italy is where you're from. It offers the kind of meals a mother would be proud of. The decor creates an intimate ambience with antique furniture and pictures making it an ideal business venue at lunch and perfect for a romantic dinner a deux by night. Patrons who can be found here are a host of regulars, celebrities, tourists on the trail to and from the nearby British Museum and theatre luvvies. The regulars are a-plenty, for the place tends to bring you back, just like Rome's Trevi Fontana. Menu highlights include Crab Meat and Prawns Salad, Risotto Salsiccia & Barolo, Pappardelle with duck meat & Sage, Whole Grilled Seabass, a Prime Scottish Beef Filet with Blue Cheese and a the traditional Tiramisu which is a must to try. But don't worry, if your favourite dish is not there, Our senior chef’s are more than happy to accommodate your request! We cater for any occasion and up to 35 people on our private room. T & C Apply.This is the place where you can enjoy a relaxing evening out. In fact, you will relax so much you won't want to leave!
