Description: Back in 1985, Lorenzo Nargi and his wife Jane set up this neighbourhood 'ristorante and pizzeria' in a simple lock-up shop on Westow Hill in Crystal Palace. They then acquired the whole building, and in the evenings the action is spread over three floors packed to bursting with devoted fans of the place.

Reviewed 6 June 2014 via mobile

You can't go wrong really- simple food cooked perfectly. Good service. Just be sure to ask for your pasta on a warm plate!
Best dish: the baby squid with spinach and garlic. DELICIOSO!

“OK+”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

Went recently with family. All agreed the food was very good & service excellent. Ambience rather lacking but if you accept this is a basic old fashioned london italian restaurant then there is nothing to complain about. In common with other reviewers I can see how some would get upset at packing so many in to such a small place - experienced worse in italy.

“consistent”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

Had a great meal at this restaurant. Their prawns in garlic butter the best I've eaten in years. I've visited twice and had good service both times, a couple of years apart.
