Very cool crowd and great Mediterranean-inspired food. Get in early as by 630pm it began to fill up and get noisy! The service was great and we got excellent suggestions from the wait staff. Yummy raspberry cocktail and good wine list. Wild boar ragu and a beautifully cooked rare steak with lemon were the highlights.

Nice restaurant in Notting Hill. Italian food with a British touch. Nothing to die for but the place has its charm. The bar upstairs is great.

Not too usual in London to fine a very nice place with food and separate cocktail bar. The place is really nice and the atmosphere very cozy! Perfect for dating or romantic dinners!

This place is absolutely charming, warm and cozy with the right amount of trendy people (without being pretentious). The cocktails are delicious and their bar snacks are so... More

Let me start with the positives. The building is attractive as is the interior space. We chose to sit outside for lunch as the day was lovely (4 adults, 3 kids). We were warmly greeted when we arrived by a nice gentleman. We quickly ordered a couple pizzas for the kids, as they were starving. We were told the chef... More

We went here for dinner on the weekend. We had been told their pizzas were good, and we were not disappointed. It was full, and a touch noisy, but the service was efficient, and we all enjoyed our meal there. Afterwards, we went upstairs to the bar for a night cap. Again, full, but we found a table and it...

Description
An old-boozer turned modern Italian restaurant; the menu includes a fresh approach to Mediterranean classics & consistently excellent pizzas which propel the reputation of this neighbourhood restaurant across London.
Our menus reflect a love of honest, wholesome food & flavours with simplicity in presentation.
Tucked away upstairs you will find our stunning private dining room, adjacent to, but still very much part of our cocktail bar. Folding doors can provide just the right amount of privacy yet still capturing the atmosphere of the popular bar lounge. The table can seat up to 16 for a 2 or 3 course meal and can be booked for lunch or dinner any day of the week; perfect for a celebratory dinner with friends or family. The room also has the versatility to be used for more corporate daytime functions, with lunch.
