Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Had dinner last night , the location is perfect right in the centre of Richmond, the interior is cozy and the staff friendly and polite, but alas the food was disappointing, All 4 mains were served tepid on cold plates which is a basic mistake...which could easily remedied. The whole attitude of the manager/owner was to get us fed and out so he could have another sitting. We all agreed that we wouldn’t be visiting again sadly .More

Cosy restaurant although our table was on a slant so everything felt lopsided. The service was attentive, and the wine we chose was nice. However, the food felt underwhelming and my partners prawns were cold. The burrata was basically just a ball of cheese on...a plate with a thin layer of romesco, and it wasn’t that creamy inside. Both pasta dishes were really average and overall we felt the meal did not represent the price tag.More

So nice to be able to book a table without having to make a reservation on a credit card - which seems to be the norm for many restaurants now. Had a wonderful dinner, all 5 dinner dishes were excellent - flavoursome and fresh. Such...a hidden gem. You must go. The only downfall - there are steep stairs so it's not accessible for everyone.More

Excellent pasta dishes, which are reasonably priced, and attentive service in a small and very friendly restaurant. I would recommend the restaurant, which is close to Richmond Theatre, without hesitation.

Absolutely fantastic food, would recommend booking as the place was quite small so not sure how lucky we'd have been on a Saturday night if we hadn't! I had a great vegan pasta, which I've found to be a rare find in other Italian restaurants...and my partner had a lovely Ragu. The menu was unique but appealing and we both found it easy to find something we liked.More

Lovely, high quality, unpretentious local Italian / Sardinian restaurant and deli with excellent and unusual food, a spacious, bright dining room and lots of tempting things for sale in the deli. Excellent, friendly service.

We booked a table which was also confirmed but the restaurant had no space for us when we arrived and they claimed they couldn’t find our reservation. They turned us away. Given the circumstances which were entirely their fault they remarkably abrupt and unapologetic. Not...a good experience. Be careful when booking with these people!More

Simple, but very tasty and very special. The pasta dishes that we tried were amazing. The vegan pasta was truly special, something that cannot be easily said. The desserts were amazing, the best cannoli we have tasted in London. On the negative side is that...the place is kind of small and you can find yourself dining in very close proxomity with others.More

Such a gem of Italy (Sardegna) in Richmond. Simple but made with care food and attentive service. Fantastic pasta dishes. Lovely starters and mains to die for.

I loved everything about this place. More intimate and homely than the pics suggested. Super-helpful and warm service. Flavourful dishes that were well presented. I'll be heading back there as soon as I get another chance.

This is a genuine family restaurant, run by Italians. The menu is small, but offers a lovely selection of dishes that are a bit different from the normal fare. We were well looked after by all the staff and had a thoroughly nice meal at...normal Richmond pricing.More

Lovely little Italian restaurant. The food is unusual and very tasty. We chose the burrata and meatball starters, both were delicious. Our mains were stuffed squid and lamb ragu - beautiful ! A nice bottle of Chianti and a shared canelli for desert made for...a perfect evening of relaxed dining.More
