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!

Really enjoyable 3 course meal before the game. Have to book many weeks in advance to secure a table, especially for big groups but that is standard in Twickenham anyway. This visit was particularly good. At £50 a head it's not cheap but the atmosphere is good and for a very busy day the staff cope very well. As a... More

Went after the rugby at twickenham, fitted us in without a booking despite being busy. Food is good although probably could have done with some veg with the meal and had to wait a little for one main course. Although got a complimentary drink. Considering the day we went overall good and staff were excellent.

Four of us ate here with my wife and I ordering a chicken pasta dish. One with a creamy sauce and one with the menu mushroom sauce but they couldn't tell the difference when they brought them to our table. Our friends meals had came 5 minutes before so we asked them to start before us. My wifes pasta dish... More

Came here for lunch. Great fresh Italian food. Very tasty. Can sit out in the summer. Well worth a visit.

Used to have lunch here when I worked in Twickenham, but haven't eaten in the evening for years. Decided to try it after an early cinema showing in Richmond, and SO pleased we did. Food was top notch (particularly the rump of lamb), service was friendly and timely, wine was lovely ... and it didn't break the bank! Definitely worth... More

The food, the service, the wine, everything is great about this restaurant. The staff are so personable and the food is incredibly fresh. The restaurant has a really old Italian feel and is well decorated. I recommend visiting in the summer and taking advantage of the alfresco dining. The risotto is my personal favourite. It's so fresh and filling. Definitely... More

We stopped in here on a Saturday lunchtime with no expectations. The staff were nice a friendly. We both ordered paninis, one steak, the other vegetarian. Great food and great value for money.
