“The best place to eat in Victoria”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 May 2014

I use this restaurant very regularly and I have never written about it! This is a great restaurant to have in your local area and in some ways I am loathed to share it. The staff are super friendly and are proud of what they have achieved since opening about 2 years ago. It is tucked away and just off Rochester Row but is worth the walk from Victoria St or indeed Pimlico. The wines are well chosen and there is always something new to try. The meats and cheeses are very authentic and the best. The kitchen is open for all to see and food is all cooked fresh with great pastas as well as fish and meat dishes. It is hard to choose a dish as all are excellent. For me the linguini is outstanding and love the fried courgettes along with the calamari and serano ham. Prices are very reasonable. So give it a try and I am sure you will not be disappointed.

“An Enjoyable Evening”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014 via mobile

This restaurant recommended to us by TA forum members after we were struggling to find somewhere to eat in an unfamiliar area of London and we were not disappointed!! It is well worth finding - it is around a ten minute walk from Pimlico Tube station in a quiet and mainly residential area. We had two courses each, shared a dessert and a bottle of wine and the bill was £70 including service charge and the discretionary charity donation the restaurant adds to each bill to help feed London's homeless. The waiters were very attentive, friendly and knowledgable regarding ingredients. The food was faultless! We thoroughly enjoyed the meal - the menu was slightly different than standard Italian Fayre and tasted so fresh it was delicious. Highly recommended!

“Good, though not wonderful”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2014 via mobile

My local Italian, large light airy room, relaxed efficient friendly service. Having dined here a handful of times, authentic italian cuisine pleasant but not exceptional. Decent set menu, but watch out for added extras, vegetables sides charged , wine list pricing ambitious, 12.5% service charge. I'm sure this is fine if your on expenses or a tourist. But for locals not so sure.

“wonderful evenig, great food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2014

thouroughly recommend thisvplave for food, service and ambience. we had calamari, serano ham, sea bream, steak, linguini and swordfish and all was faultless. nice glass of pinot grigio by the carafe. both my children - teenager and near teenager, and their grandma loved the evening and it engendered a great cross generational evening with lots of chat and not a sight of a smart phone all evening! recommend you try this place
