“Still the best Italian in London”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

We went today for the third time and found it was just the best. Sorry to hear they are closing for a holiday in August, but have already booked to go back on 17th September
Looking forward to our visit

“Simple and Tasty”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

I was working and staying nearby and on my quest to find a place to eat I happened across this place. The weather was beautiful and the waiter offered me a table outside. Eating alone is sometimes a bit of a worry for me but the staff were friendly but left me alone with my kindle, food arrived quickly, I had pasta arribiatta and a green salad, was well Cooked and presented and the white wine was chilled to perfection. My meal with wine was 18 pounds which i think is good value for the area, service charge is added which I'm not used to but still good value. I'll be staying in the area quite a lot and will certainly visit again

“Disappointing”
Reviewed 3 August 2014

After reading the reviews we were looking forward to what turned out to a very average meal. The staff are friendly and the ambiance is ok. We had booked a show so were a little concerned that things would stretch out. They didn't in fact the meals came a little to quickly to be freshly cooked. Mine was so hot, not freshly cooked hot but that heat that comes from something kept slightly over heated. Shame. Not the experience we were expecting.

“Authentic, friendly and absolutely delicious”
Reviewed 3 August 2014 via mobile

Went for a pre-ballet dinner with my wife, and was delighted with all aspects. The pasta with italian sausage was the best I have ever eaten, and the buffalo mozzarella was creamy and luscious - my wife had seafood pasta and enjoyed immensely. The menu is short - speaks of their confidence in their food - but every mouthful a delight. We cannot wait to return and try some more dishes! Book early btw - we arrived at 5, but by 6.30 the place was heaving and new arrivals had to wait 45 minutes for a table.

“Tripadvisor didn't work this time.”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

I have had great success in the past following recommendations of Trip advisor. However this time it didn't work. I was very disappointed with the quality of food and service. I really struggle to understand why people give this restaurant a big rating. considering the food and service I thought that the meal was very expensive.
