Disappointing - standard menu choices, bland flavours, stodgy risotto and anaemic looking meat toppings on pizza. staff friendly but service very slow.

We booked a table for a pre-gig dinner (roundhouse is just across the street - restaurant is 5min max walk from Chalk Farm Station). We were well welcomed with an efficient and friendly service. We ordered the fried mozzarella balls: tasty and sufficient amount.We also had pizzas : big enough but average taste nothing out of the blue. Drinks are... More

We chose the restaruant becase of the locality to our hotel, we found the staff to be prompt and attentive, and the quality of the food was first class, we would almost certainly eat here again.

I used to love la porchetta and was so excited to visit again after years of living away. The antipasti was incredibly over priced for what it was. A tiny bit of Parmalat ham. Cheap ham and a tiny amount of olives and jarred vegetables (not pleasant). The pasta dish I ordered was so salty and the seafood over cooked.... More

The pizza was average, the service was average, it wasn't very busy at all. Just a bit of a dull atmosphere really.

Fairly quiet when we entered. Service was very prompt and attentive. Pleasant atmosphere. Two seater table near the window was a little cramped. Food was very good and reasonably priced for the area, but being on business could only drink soft drinks and these were overly expensive.

Meals were quick to come out and were made from good quality ingredients. The calzone was absolutely massive and very tasty. Waitresses were friendly and service was prompt. Not the cheapest place to eat, but the quality and portion size justifies the cost. Would definitely recommend!

This place only exists as opposite the roundhouse. The food is just average. Quality of ingredients is clearly not there. WOULD HAVE GIVEN A ZERO Staff is so so rude and could not care less. The only thing the staff said to us throughout every stage of the dinner is: are you ready? Just before placing our order. No greetings... More

Very nice food, good pizzas and pasta and the price wasn't bad for a Camden location. Let down a little by the service though as even though as a little unfriendly and English could have been better...

Have eaten here a few times in the past, so was happy to return after some time. Upon entering we were told there would be a 3 minute wait for a table, not problems there until it actually turned out to be nearer 10. After seating in the corner near the window we were systematically ignored for 20 minutes (along... More
