Very charming, authentic Italian tucked off Angel's Upper street. Food was delicious. We ordered the Quattro Stagioni Vegetariana pizza to share as a starter; fresh, light, moreish! I had the home baked aubergine for main, and my partner has pasta puttanesca. The Aubergine was rich...More

We went here for a family dinner. Kids enjoyed a very good pasta, and we shared an excellent Osso Buco and a great salad. Good value for money.
