“Service is attentive to just the right level” at this “friendly” small chain of slightly old-fashioned local Italians across southwest London. The pizza and pasta dishes are at “good value” prices, and there’s a “really pleasant atmosphere, be it for dinner with friends or Sunday lunch with the littlies”.

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
