I stumbled on this restaurant by chance as we had been visiting some properties nearby. The owner/chef was very welcoming and he made us feel at home very quickly. He proposed lots of lovely dishes some very original and innovative on top of those listed in a very extensive menu.
The food was quickly served and very tasty. We forgot to ask for the cost of the specials, therefore, we were very presently surprised when the bill arrived. We will certainly go back...even if we will not move to that area.

La Biciclette West Horndon http://www.labicicletta.net

What a little gem this out of the way Italian restaurnt is. This typical little Italian restaurant is on the corner of a block of flats and doesn’t really look the part but once inside is warm and inviting with nicely laid out tables. We were recommended this by a friend and what a find. Absolutely traditional italian food. The owner/chef Alberto, came out and greeted us personally. He asked us what type of food we liked, what type of pasta, how spicey we liked it and offered his own suggestions and really went out of his way to make our meal speciel, and indeed it was one of the best Italian meals that we had the pleasure to have. He even offered to cook us a special something if nothing took our fancy.
We went to Italy on a tour last year and had some fabulous meals and this was their equall.
As I said what a gem of a place. Real home cooked Italian food.
I have read some of the reviews on “Trip Adviser” and cant believe some of the bad reviews
How do you please some people. We couldn’t have been made more welcome or been fed better.
If this place was in the West End the prices would be treble and well worth it!

A very traditional family run restaurant.

Alberto, the owner ensured that we had a fantastic evening. The food was typically Italian, a great mix of seafood, meats, pasta and antipasti, not forgetting the perfect tiramisu! The Sardinian wine, as recommended by Alberto, complimented the food perfectly.

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at La Bicicletta and will definitely be coming back. To those that think it's an expensive restaurant I would say, you get what you pay for.

5 stars for the food and drink and 5 stars for the hospitality.

My husband and I tried this restaurant recently on the recommendation of a friend. It is in West Horndon which is pretty much in the middle of nowhere and looks very unprepossesing from the road.
However, as soon as you go through the door you enter a warm and friendly atmosphere - a real Italian restaurant, not a chain, food cooked by the Dad and various family members serving.

We had a fixed menu lunch which though it consisted of only 3 items per course they were all of a consistantly high quality and tasted delicious. The service from the various family members was outstanding and we felt that we were visiting friends.

We were very glad to have been pointed in the direction of this restaurant and would love to make a return trip for the more extensive dinner menu.
