This “hidden gem” in a backstreet near St Paul’s is an “old school”, “cheap ’n’ cheerful Italian serving mama’s cooking in the City”. “The basic premises are quite crowded, but the simple food’s excellent.”

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).
