This is an excellent, tiny, authentic pizzeria that feels like too good to share with anyone else. Great value and very tasty food. A great place for a quick bite.

Wanted something other than pub grub on Xmas eve. Family living locally have been wanting to try this restaurant and it certainly didn't disappoint. Lovely authentic atmosphere. Service attentive but not overpowering. The food generous and beautifully cooked. Great seafood. Absolutely recommend for great Italian

A little small, unpretentious place, but great food & service. You could easily walk past this restaurant. Parking bays outside. Ideal for friends meet up over lunch. All food freshly prepared, kitchen in full view of diners. One of my guests is a real calzone fan; he absolutely adored it.

We stumbled across this place on our way home from the Sipsmiths Distillery tour just round the corner. A small restaurant that seats about 30 over two levels. Very authentic Italian food, served by lovely staff who are all Italian.

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
