This Italian bistro has a distinctly rustic feel which shapes a relaxed culinary experience, even when the restaurant is busy. The extensive menu offers an interesting selection. The dishes are freshly prepared, and are tasty and well presented. The wine list offers impressive value for money. Service is swift yet unhurried, and we enjoyed lingering over our desserts and coffee.

Typical Italian restaurant, small size looks family owned. Lots of choices, food was great but a bit on the expensive side i.e. no appetiser, no dessert, no wine, just 2 mains was about 40pounds.You can get better at these prices, but overall a good choice. Notting Hill is an added bonus.

Owner didn't seem to like us. Crappy service. Pizza was great and the pasta dishes as well. Probably our last visit here!

We ate here this lunchtime and as usual food was wonderful. I had the seafood linguine and there was more on my plate than I could eat, much to my husbands delight. It is very reasonably priced for the quality of food and we had 2 baskets of bread neither of which we were charged for. We will definitely come... More

I went with friends just after the new year. It's got a homely feel, the staff were very helpful. They helped choose wine to compliment the food. Great service.

The food was OK, the service was good. What is not good is their management and/or owners less than honest policy of adding a 12.5% "optional" charge on the bill and then asking if you want to pay an additional "service charge" when you make the credit card payment. This is a cynical way to try and get away with... More

Even though they lost our reservation this is still a nice restaurant to catch up with friends. Nice food and a very comfortable atmosphere make for a pleasant time.

We use to love this place even with a rude behaviour of the owner. As we were in London and wanted to take some friends out for a very nice dinner we choose this restaurant. We had made a bookings for upstairs which was confirmed but on arrival found out we will be seated downstairs as the owners friend had... More

Came here during the summer and sat at one of the outside tables - it's a perfect location for it as the street is quiet enough for it to not be disruptive, but busy enough to be good for people watching. The food was an absolute delight! We had pizzas and starters so it didn't work out too expensive, however... More

Staying in Notting Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
Notting Hill
As West London's friskiest corner, Notting Hill more than manages to retain plenty of the same appeal that's brought the affluent area so much worldwide attention. In this attractive cobblestoned neighbourhood, a delectable variety of eateries, independent shops, galleries and street vendors offer a delightful window into how to live the good life in London, with each presenting visitors with an experience that's a little more idiosyncratic and endearing than the last. Travelers looking to forage for antiques should be sure to visit the Portobello Road Market on Saturdays, the largest antiques market in the United Kingdom.
