This was my first visit to this tiny (35 covers?) local restaurant, as recommended by a friend. Situated off the Chiswick High Road, which is full of chain restaurants, this intimate independent Italian restaurant was a delight. Let's deal with some of the more negative reviews. Yes, it is tiny. Yes, because it's tiny the seating may not be as... More

We live in Chiswick and had been meaning to go here a quite a time. When we eventually did we loved it. It is tiny, probably seating no more that 20 people. However, the food is really good and the staff excellent. Doesn't cost a fortune for really good food. If you haven't been, give it a go and you... More

I smelt the rich aroma before I even entered and knew it would be good. It was late so there were few people but they were all Italian so I knew again it would be a good meal. The sauce was very good ... I don't think it even matters what you have with it!! Do not let the seating... More

And the best surprise is that it's not just the pizzas, pasta and typical Italian fare that you expect that deserve such high praise. It's the fish and shellfish and salads, too, that are terrific. So a little bit of quality for everyone. The owners and staff are all very caring and while it is a not a fancy cafe... More

What a gem, this took me a long time to get round to, but we will definitely be back. Authentic real Italian food in a non-fussy but pleasant setting - che bella!

As an Italian with lot of attention to food quality and taste, I can strongly recommend the restaurant. The personnel (very kind and hilarious) pays real attention to your courses and can suggest the best for you.

My partner and I were addicted to all things to do with pizza at one point and must have tried sooooooooooooo many places and had our fingers burnt a few times. Maybe someone was smiling down at me... I had a substitute Italian hairdresser and we got talking about Italian food in London. She recommended this place. Oh my god... More

Always very consistent and fantastic. We love the prawn starter and pizza and great for any occasion. Pick the small lower dining room for more air and close to the action. Staff always lovely.
