Couldn't resist calling into our favourite Italian in Covent Garden. There is always a warm welcome from the staff - We chose Pollo Milanese and Mario's Pizza. Olives on the side, a bottle of San Pelligrino and off you go. Delicious.
Not sure what went wrong with the chap who usually eats at Iceland, (reviewed yesterday) as we visited on the same day. What a contrast.

When the coffee is dire, it says alot about an Italian eatery. The pizzas are the worse I've had in a long time - and that was from Iceland. The four seasons pizza should have been called no seasons as there was very little filling on it. There were some tinned peas on it though which I must say was a pizza first for me. The aubergine rolls are also worth a try - a bit like swallowing whale blubber in long life bread. This place is truly awful. stay away. There is more grave than gravy About this place!

We just happened upon this restaurant in Covent Graden on the way back to the Tube from being tourists for the day.
We had lovely pizzas sitting outside on a balmy London evening. The staff were charming and attentive, the pizzas were delicious, and the bill very reasonable.

A typical italian restaurant (you could be in Italy) Basic, simple fresh food served in their own style.
Well worth a visit if you're in Covent Garden.
A few tables at the front give you a street-side feel, (great on a warm day) plus they have a seated area inside.
Tasty and fair portions. Generous bowl of olives, not the '8 on a plate' found in some italian chain restaurants.
The staff are running around with expression and passion.
Pizza's are freshly prepared by the chap in the photo - who is also crazy !
They are bothered about your visit.
I'd eat there again and again. I'm pretty fussy.

buon appetito !

Not happy one bit, first was given the wrong type of pasta to what I had ordered, my friend ordered a carbonara but what had turned up was a plate of pasta with cream at the bottom and some hard pieces of bacon , there was no proper customer service , in total we paid £30 for a meal and the only thing we ate was the garlic bread and then the plates were taken away no one questioned why none of the food had been touched , only thing we got was a free can of cola for them got given me the correct pasta xxx
