    We had a really excellent meal. Beautiful shared starter of salami and meats, one pizza and one pasta, and two puddings. All were excellent. Very happy customers!

    We were a large group-11- with one being a late addition who was added with the minimum of fuss from the staff. All my party commented on the lively friendly atmosphere and the excellent food.

    We were down in London for a show and booked a table here before we arrived. The food was fabulous and the service excellent. Will definitely go again.

    The restaurant was really nice but I felt that if they made it more obvious that it was open then it will be better. If i had not checked online i would not have known it was open.

    Lovely little restaurant a little bit off the beaten track. Good food and lovely staff. It’s a pity it wasn’t a bit busier but we enjoyed ourselves

    Super restaurant. Traditional with high quality pasta and pizza. Best pizza crust since Rome. If you are looking for simple well cooked food then don't miss it.

    Small restaurant in an area you’d expect to be touristy but the food is delicious, the service warm and welcoming and the ambiance is delightful
