We wandered in here for a late Saturday afternoon lunch and left not really planning to return.

We picked it mostly because it was on the way back to the hotel. We were seated at a table for four, with two other people already there, despite there being free tables in the restaurant.

The service was brisk and efficient but completely unengaging - creating the impression they just wanted you in and out as quickly as possible, despite the fact that the restaurant did not seem terribly busy.

The food (pizza for me, pasta for her) was, again, 'fine' and quite tasty and enjoyable. The speed at which the plates were whipped away when we were finished did not encourage us to linger for an espresso, so we paid, left and went for a coffee at a nearby patisserie.

All told, it was probably good value for London, but there is better available and it's not a place I'd be heading back to.

this is a nice italian restaurant close to the Tube South Kensington and the Natural History Museum. The pizza is made fresh, the ravioli (choice of the day) were very good.
Thank you!

Food was okay but the service would have been quicker if the staff had crawled from Italy. As I'm still sat within the restaurant I have had time to get bored of waiting for the bill, decide to write a bad review, decide I have enough time to write it and write it. Very poor!

We had visited the Science Museum and wanted an Italian meal. By 6 o'clock the restaurant was full which is always a good sign.
Our friend, who knows about wines professionally, picked a gorgeous red wine. All our menu choices were spot on, delivered with a bowl of grated parmesan cheese.
Would not hesitate to recommend this place and would definately return.

We stopped here for lunch on Saturday while visiting the museums of South Kensington. The area was crowded with tourists and many of the eating places had people queuing for tables. We opted for Sole Luna and waited just a few minutes for table. Service was friendly and efficient. In spite of being busy, we didn't wait too long for our food. Looking around at other tables, all the pizzas and pastas looked wonderful. We had pasta, pizza and salads - all absolutely delicious and in good amounts. Very reasonably priced too, for such a prime location. We loved it.
