This place is well-priced considering its location in Great Portland Street. I assume it's a family business as the same Italian staff have worked there for years. My garlic and chilli spaghetti dish was well cooked if slightly on the small size. I've always found...More

This was close to our hotel. My food was okay, but was done well - butternut squash ravioli (I forget the filling) but it was a bit runny. True, the quality of cooking is there and nearer Italian food than most. My mom had the...More

Early evening so quiet enough it took asking three different members of staff before getting a drink. As the restaurant filled and our food had not arrived we were then informed 'lost in the kitchen'. The food is served in very large portions but the...More

Quite how this restaurant is still in business, I don't know. It's Italian food for tourists, not for the discerning who know what real Italian food should taste like.More

This restaurant delivers what you would want from a good Italian restaurant. A wide selection of typical Italian food, cooked perfectly, delicious flavour and generous portions. The restaurant is large and is always busy, but I think it's possible to get a table without booking,...More

This sophisticated and sociable slice of Central
London is a shopper’s paradise, offering the latest
fashions, gadgets, and souvenirs. Fitzrovia is
conveniently located between the major retail
thoroughfares of Regent Street to the west and
Tottenham Court Road to the east, with a handful of
well connected Tube stations dotted around the area
for easy transport. This neighbourhood is a favorite

I am trying top see your menu for appetisers & deserts. We ate there Sep 2nd and it was fabulous but when I tell people what I ordered I can only remember the Lasgna, I know I was so full I took the desert with me. Any way I can get a copy of the menu? I know my friend and I spit the appetiser and it had cheese & olives? I had a drink and she had a diet pepsi.
