Absolutely 1st class food in a really lovely restaurant. Delicious and great service. I hadn't been here for years and the quality and style was just as I had remembered. I would thoroughly recommend for lunch or dinner.

Being a local to Wimbledon, this is a restaurant that I have been to from time to time over the years, and on this occasion, I was tempted in once again by the beautiful and scerene dining room which has clearly been given a refresh recently. It looks like a scene from a 70s David Hockney painting - large colourful... More

We ate here a month or so ago. The pasta was delicious and the restaurant ambiance is really nice. It's a small, cute Italian restaurant not far from Wimbledon centre. The wine choice is also really good. I recommend.

This restaurant has been here for over 40 years & has a lovely feel to it when you walk in, old school with pristine white linen on the tsbles. The staff/manager are friendly but sadly our waitress wasn't very knowledgeable, service was slowwwwww & she was forgetful. Food was so so, nothing to write home about & pasta was overcooked.

Always been a fan of this totemic Italian restaurant which is traditional and yet modern . It has the atmosphere of a genuine trattoria where you are a welcome guest and the staff want to ensure you go away content They have just introduced lighter menus as an option and they are exceptional value although it is worth supping wins...

Myself +1 had their express/set dinner menu which was great value at £23 for three courses (available Mon-Thurs). We were only offered a la carte and had to ask for the express - not sure if this was a mistake or by design... Anyway, the crostino with pulled pork was a bit heavy as a first course but my partners... More

Visited this place on the spur of the moment, I had the steak and "mash", at £32. The steak was not cooked to my tasting. Who on earth has their steak well done and incinerated these days? I asked for it medium rare, its not exactly hard to do for a basic chef, sorry cook. The waiter wasn't that great... More
