A little gem, this place. Came here following a recommendation and it didn't disappoint! Great menu, great food and great service - and reasonably priced. A bit off the beaten track, but well worth looking doe.

Went there for lunch. Food was fine (apart from he fact I couldn't taste anything else apart from cheese in my lasagna), but nothing special. OK for the price I paid. However I'm sure it would taste better if the staff was more attentive. They were busy chatting to each other about their personal issues and commenting on customers (!?).... More

I came back to this restaurant after several years. I used to work in Twickenham and enjoyed eating at Pulcinella. Staff are still friendly and the restaurant is comfortable. I was eating with a friend and I had Spaghetti Carbonara and my friend had Lasagne. We shared a green salad and coffee. The food was good, well cooked and well... More

We had a great three course dinner and wine with very polite and welcoming service, the pasta with chicken and porcini was outstanding but everything was cooked just right. The liver and steak were very good and not expensive for the South of England. If they can be this good on a busy match day they deserve praise. We will... More

Had to book months in advance for a day when England were playing at home, but well worth it . A set lunch menu but great choices on menu, staff great and no pressure to move on once meal was finished. Great food and wine a must to do.

Disappointed in the visit this time, we have been here a number of time over the last 4-5 years, and tonight was not as good. The food was just not up to scratch, for a £60+ bill and that was 20% off I really think it was poor, we had starters and mains and my husband got a pizza on... More

Waited 55 minutes for our starter . We were told there was a big table that caused our delay . Then the main arrived, no starter ! Worst meal in a long time. We left and went to the nearby Indian , delightful .

Stopped past for a quick dinner on a Sunday. Pasta was homemade which was nice, baby squid was a little overdone for my liking but had good flavours. Good for an average priced, home made food.

We have been to this restaurant many times before and sad to say the food and service had both declined substantially, which is a real shame!

The restaurant is in a nice location near the river. The interior is cosy and warm, and the service is quite attentive. The food I've tried was OK, but I've definitely had better in terms of italian food in the London area!
