Well cooked Italian food, accompanied by a good wine list & served in fantastic family style. And very reasonably priced. Only small so book early!

Reviews are deceptive in this case. We were expecting a traditional sicilian restaurant, instead we found an Italian restaurant with many British adapted recipes. Don't get me wrong, food was good, but it could have been better. We trusted our Italian palate and went for some recipes that were closer to our taste, and overall the food was OK, though... More

Visited with my family in February as birthday treat, found food to be extremely good, great wine too, service was also good but appeared to be slightly stretched so may be had someone missing. I could not fault it though as very friendly and very good value. We will definitely be back.

I work up to road and we occasionally go and have lunch here (we also have had quit a few birthday/farewell lunches too) and although the restaurant isnt the largest, they always manage to fit us in (upwards of 10 people sometimes). The food has always been top notch and the service provided is beyond excellent. If you enjoy Italian... More

The best food we have had recently has been on a couple of recent visits here. The welcome, the drink, the service and the food were all great. May not be the most inspiring looking place from the outside. but once in the small team will make you very welcome. The wine list is good ranging from cheaper priced standards... More

Me and three friends stumbled across this hidden gem on Friday night. The staff were welcoming and managed to squeeze us in as we hadn't booked in advance. The food was exquisite, especially the Combo Italia side, sauté potatoes are delicious. The prices are fair, my only advice would be to book in advance to ensure you're able to be... More

Visited Southend for business and wanted somewhere nice for tea, La Pizzeria was recommended on Google Maps so we sat down and some amazing pizza. They're all really big, with a nice soft base and doughy crust. Plenty of toppings, really spoiled for choice on what to choose. Staff are great and the venue is really cozy and warm. Would... More
