“Fabulously hearty, rustic Puglian dishes, served with a smile” and at “good-value prices” win numerous very enthusiastic reviews for this “far-from-standard” Italian, beside Smithfield Market; but “it’s a great place for supper, rather than ‘a destination”.

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).
