I love the fact the majority of the menu can be done as gluten free however was a bit disappointed at the fact everything was more expensive if you wanted it to be gluten free... the food was amazing nonetheless and portion sizes were huge but just let down by the price difference for gluten free food.

Whenever I am in London I always make sure I have one night spare to visit Lino and his family at Il Cotto. The pizzas are terrific - but I nearly always settle for the Puttanesca with some added chilli. easy access via underground - less than 100 metres from Pimlico station - Always Friendly attentive service

My husband, parents-in law and I had just arrived in London and after our hotel check-in nearby we were in search of supper when we saw this place. It looked packed with people and that is usually a good sign. We had to wait for approx. 10 minutes for a table and they took some time to get the food... More

My wife and I took two of our adult children and my daughter's boyfriend here because it was listed as one of the 10 best vegetarian restaurants near Waterloo Station. It is a handy 10 minute walk from the station bang opposite Lambeth North tube station. It isn't a vegetarian restaurant as such but it has a good number of... More

I hate to say it but I was a bit disappointed in this place. I had the Vesuviana pizza which was great and the wife had the lasagna which was cold. Also, we had to ask for menus after waiting for ten minutes. Everything that I could see on the menu was ala carte so the salad added 6 pounds... More
