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.

When we arrived, we were greeted by a very kind staff and we were seated at the table. Immediately, a very friendly waiter took our drinks order, instructing us to choose some very good cocktails for our taste. For the entree he recommended burrata salad and garlic bread which were excellent, and then we ordered a pizza with burrata and pasta with truffles which were also excellent. Throughout the meal, we had the pleasure of having Orestis as our waiter who, in addition to his professionalism, is a very friendly guy who can help you find a type of food that suits your taste if you are more difficult, but also with whom you can laugh and have some very kind conversations. At the end of the meal, after being surprised by the good food, the very kind staff and the warm atmosphere, we received 2 shots of limoncello from the restaurant, a special gesture that we thought was very nice. I wholeheartedly recommend this restaurant with extraordinary food and staff that you rarely find anymore. Special thanks to Orestis who made our evening more special!

Food was tasty and well presented. We had calamari and bruschetta starters and pasta mains that were well seasoned and a very good flavour. Service was exceptional - attentive and smiley! Will come back.

This restaurant is fabulous. The food is delicious. My friend and I did not book but Irem was so kind and found us a table. We sat outside but there are heaters and she gave us blankets. It was so cozy and a lovely experience. Irem really looked after us, she’s worth her weight in gold! All the staff were friendly and checked in on us. Highly recommended and I will be back!

We were looking for an authentic Italian meal while in London. Faros (Holborn) was nearby so we took a chance. Our server, Qrestis, knew the menu and was able to answer all our questions. He was polite and very attentive. The food was delicious and Qrestis made our dining experience memorable. We will return.

This restaurant was a great find. It's nicely tucked away from the hectic pace of both Farringdon and Holborn, but still within comfortable walking distance. The place looked tiny when we walked in, but we were oblivious to the fact there was an entire basement floor which was absolutely rammed by the time we were leaving. The food is simple Italian fayre, but brilliantly done. I had the Minestrone soup for starter, my friends had a good bruschetta. They had wonderful steaks (Filetto Di Manzo Ai Porcini) for mains whilst I went for the Papardelle Beef Ragu which was amazing, and so filling! We finished it off with a great amaretto and coffee too. Special shout out to all of the staff, but in particular Karthik, who was extremely helpful and friendly. Highly recommended!

Brilliant service, kind staff, food and ambience; a hidden gem! The Manager dealt with my allergies in a way that didn't feel patronising or like I was a problem, so thank you. I was still able to enjoy authentic Italian food despite allergies.
