This is a lovely Italian! Excellent, authentic food, a comprehensive wine list, and a knowledgeable and friendly owner. Lovely atmosphere. Really couldn't ask for more. If I lived locally, I suspect I'd be here a lot!

Easily the best family run restaurant in Hendon. Decent specials board with 3 or 4 choices per course and they were flexible to change and mix up things if when asked. Easy parking close by by check google.
