We really enjoyed the atmosphere and the food in this restaurant. We all had Steaks with some great Italian red wine. Reminded me on Tuscany. Had a great evening .

Stayed at nearby hotel where I was put off by their restaurant reviews so having reviewed this restaurant on Tripadvisor, my wife and I were not disappointed. There is no flashy furnishings or decor but it was clean, honest and welcoming. We were met by the female owner/manger who was pleasant and attentive throughout our meal. The food was on... More

We were booked in to this restaurant by our daughter for dinner and I have to say it was fantastic. Lovely staff, very friendly and chatty, matched by lovely food. In particular I would recommend the antipasti starter for two, which four of us shared and it was plenty. We had a mixture of pasta and pizza dishes and some... More

The food is good, I cannot fault it, but the service sucks. Can't sit in a seat I want to sit at, second time this has happened. Owner seems a bit difficult and rude.

Found this little gem, whilst staying in a nearby hotel. Had pre dinner drinks in London House opposite. Really warm & welcoming, rustic style. Kept it simple with a delucous pizza style cheese & tomatoe garlic bread, followed by steak cooked perfectly medium rare as ordered with roast potatoes & salad washed down with a bottle of Malbec.

Really nice staff, great pasta and pizzas that feel truly Italian. We orden take away pizzas every Sunday since we moved to Battersea. Feels like home

This restaurant delivers what it says on the tin. It is a popular and homely pizzeria which does not shirk on portion size in any way, be warned, the Gnocco Fritto as a starter may well challenge your ability to complete your main course. I shared the Tagliere Della Chef with my son and there was ample tasty Italian meats... More

Went for a quick lunch near the office. Have to say the pizza is one of the best in London. Fresh dough and quality ingredients. Fairly priced too. At a loss to understand why it's so empty, though. Plenty of competition but only 6 months ago it was bursting at the seams at lunchtime. Just go for the pizza.

We had a lovely, low key lunch here. Everything was freshly made, so it wasn't terribly quick, but the food was good. Service was friendly but the waitress also had to serve customers buying from the deli counter so was sometimes unavailable. Lovely fresh buffalo mozzarella to start, the we had pasta to follow. Good homemade (thin) garlic bread too.
