Very surprised by some of the negative reviews on here. I'm a regular customer and have had nothing but great service and delicious food. There is also a selection of nice wines in the sub 20 quid range which is rare around here. Start with a Negroni and try the specials!

I took 2 friends for dinner last Thursday at 10 pm. Being late we ordered 2 "Sirloin Beef Tagliata" medium cooked, highly recommended by the waiter, and a Cheese Ravioli. After 30 minutes, the food finally arrived. The Ravioli looked and tasted ok, the 2 Beef Tagliata looked nothing like a Sirloin as described on the menu, but had a... More

5 people on a Saturday night - unfortunately we were seated in the rear room which made it very difficult to get anyone's attention and we had kitchen porters walking through to go out the back door (which let a freezing cold draught in when it wasn't closed properly). The food here is really good and the staff are really... More

Took my girlfriend here for her birthday, we both loved it. Unpretentious relaxed atmosphere but friendly knowledgeable service and really good food.

My only real complaint is Don't book this place online, you will be bombarded with spam from Quandoo -- even if you don't join. We wanted a semi-formal family meal and this was just right, good food and a good atmosphere, a nice buzz but you could talk OK even if you are old and deaf like me. The service... More

We happened upon this restaurant early Saturday evening. We hadn't booked but it was early. Anyway, the welcome was fulsome. All were smiles and positivity. The food was very good (Paccheri and Risotto) and the bin end Montepulciano was excellent. All at reasonable prices. We will come again.

My son booked a Saturday night table for 7.15. Needless to say, the restaurant was full of very happy customers. The decor is what you would expect from the name and despite the number of customers, the layout allowed for privacy. The time to take the orders was forgiveable considering how busy it was and the staff were very friendly.... More

We eat here often when in Clapham, the food is good, well presented and cooked as you wait. They will adjust the menu to suit your appetite. Service friendly and welcoming.

Absolutely love this restaurant. Not your bog standard italian - amazing menu with ever changing daily specials. Polenta is to die for!! Family friendly, nothing ever too much trouble, known to deliver non-menu options for fussy eaters. Fabulous

The atmosphere in the place is great - light, airy with plenty of nice design features and flora around. The food was distinctly disappointing; the Eggs Benedict had flavourless hollandaise, cold shop-bought wafer thin ham and the whole dish was only luke warm. My boyfriend had a frittate which was average. We had to ask several times for the bill... More
