Came in with because it looked cozy and cute. ordered the crab ravioli in a cream Salmon sauce. Half way through the meal I felt like the dish needed a little something. So I asked the waiter for some Parmesan cheese and he sort of gave me a bewildered look. I waited for his response which I couldn't believe. He literally refused to give me the Parmesan, stating you do not put Parmesan on any seafood because it would take away the flavor. When I explained that I wanted it because I liked my cream dishes cheesy, he repeated himself and walked away. Honestly I was too dumbfounded to be pissed off so I ate the rest of it and decided I would not make a scene but could not get it off my chest so I called him once I got back to the hotel. I basically explained to him about customer service and his job was to cater to the paying customers and he said even if I insisted on getting the cheese he would not give it and seemed offended that I could even ask. I realized that the conversation was going no where and the real reason I wanted the cheese was to make it taste better! UnreaL........

real Italian food, excellently cooked, lovely friendly staff, the best Italian restaurant for miles...

In absolut The best Italian bistro in London!

Excellent and friendly service, delicious typical Italian food and exquisite pizza.

Simona and Massimo, keep the good work up!!!


I took a chance last week on a takeaway from this place and I'm glad I didn't opt for my usual fallbacks, this place is that Holy Grail, a great neighbourhood restaurant! Having passed it various times on the way to my local pub (The Old Red Lion; great for Antic pub fans and beer garden lovers) it caught my eye because it's always busy despite looking like a rather nondescript family-run cafe. The handmade pastas, pizzas and puddings set it apart as an Italian that specialises in regional cooking and offers an usually good choice for vegetarians and vegans too.

We get here by chance the last Saturday and we were hit by its warm and comfort, and also for the flexibility off the staff: my girlfriend is vegan and they made a dish just for her! Very good and tasty choices, that the food lovers like us will appreciate for sure.
