Apulia Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Proper Italian food rather than “anglitalian”. Friendly efficient service and fair prices given location. "
"Enthusiastic and genuine. Real individual tastes from a confident chef. The polpo was very special, both as scottato and ragu. Wild boar ravioli were tasty. Only the risotto mare was a bit overcooked. But a risotto waits for no-one. Good Repasso from Veneto at a reasonable price for London. A most enjoyable find."
"The best thing about this place, other than the food, is that it's open on a Sunday evening, which is pretty brave in this location."
