Great Italian food! Busy, a little on the noisy side. We (7) didn't have to wait long for our food, reasonably priced and close to our hotel, The Belgrave.
Had a great meal here with my kids while visiting London. We were starving and the portions were great. Quality and service was great too. Price for food and drinks are on par with the places in the area. Less than places downtown for sure. We had pizza and pasta and we liked everything we had. No complaints. Very good all around. Definitely recommend it.
The experience would be a lot different if you are a regular customer - and Italian, in this scenario the service is amazing, but otherwise you feel like you’re not really welcome from the (rude) waitress.
Food is ok, bordering on average but reasonably priced and at least fresh... but when you order a dessert, after 30 minutes of waiting, you may hear sorry dessert is sold out, because the local will be served first (even if they ordered 15 minutes after you)
Otherwise the wine was good, it’s not overpriced even for London. Perhaps they can remember it is sometimes enough to be polite and smile and to remember you are there to make the experience better.
I expected so much more from this restaurant, because I am living close enough to (have) been a regular, but unfortunately I won’t go back there anymore...like the waitress’ smile.
(But the waiters with the mustache is amazing, I was just talking about her)
Lovely restaurant, great prices. I had a lovely Calzone for just over £10.
Everyone was speaking Italian, even most of the customers! For a moment it acrually felt like I was in Italy (the warm weather helped). I'd recommend making a reservation if planning to eat at peak time. I think I got lucky with managing to get a table!
Great food, great value and, most importantly, an amazing service done by warm and friendly staff.
