We entertained an out of town relative here last night, and had a wonderful eating experience. Cannot fault the food, the ambience or the very attentive staff! We left as very happy campers, and will return.

We celebrated a family birthday here and throughly enjoyed the cosy and quaint Italian decor. The food was super yummy & the portions were very decent. Definitely a must try for lovers of Italian food.

We stumbled on this little nook after going to yoga opposite. Absolutely delicious food and a great atmosphere. I'd go here every night if I could!

Very tasty pasta, but rich and creamy, meals are very generous portions and the service is good. Slightly expensive for what you receive.

Went for wife's birthday. First in for an early dinner. An hour later (on a monday) the place started filling up - pretty good for a monday in hospitality. More tables were booked for later as well. Excellent service - I mentioned the birthday as they served the first course as an offhand remark. After the plates were cleared, in... More

Have been to this place a few times now and it's always great quality Italian fare. There are a few Italian places in Paddington but this one we always come back to because it's just the way Italian food should be.

So "S" swapped and even she admitted it was just too hot for her to enjoy. Now "S" is visiting from London and... More
