We went to the restaurant a Sunday afternoon and it was very nice. Very friendly staff (all italian) and really good food. The menu wasn't long, but if everything is as good as what we had, it's enough. They also cook special meals outside the...More

This is probably my favourite Italian restaurant above all others in London. Simple, authentic and reliably good. It's been in Northcote Road for many years. These days the chairs are less rickety and the decor more modern, but I am sure it is still family-run...More

Fresh Italian food served in a relaxed and cozy atmosphere. Lots of daily special and an amazing-for-value set lunch available Monday to Friday! Great wine-list covering from the classic Barolo to the rarer Pecorino wine from Marches.
