This is probably my favourite Italian restaurant above all others in London. Simple, authentic and reliably good. It's been in Northcote Road for many years. These days the chairs are less rickety and the decor more modern, but I am sure it is still family-run...More

Had the most perfect meal here with our grown up kids. Excellent menu and service with very personal touches with wine choices and specials. Go and ask the waiters for all their advice eat the specials and drink the wine they suggest. Amazing

Fresh Italian food served in a relaxed and cozy atmosphere. Lots of daily special and an amazing-for-value set lunch available Monday to Friday! Great wine-list covering from the classic Barolo to the rarer Pecorino wine from Marches.
