“A cramped City Italian with good food”, this traditional venue off Bow churchyard “generally performs well” and is “packed at lunchtime – particularly at the tables outside, when weather permits”. “Portions are huge” and there’s “a fantastic list of regional Italian wines, some of which you might not find elsewhere”. Ratings dropped this year, though, with the odd ‘off’ report.

Limited but positive praise this year for the cooking at this long-established and traditional City Italian. It particularly comes into its own in summer, when you can eat on its al fresco patio and fully enjoy its quiet location, just off Bow Churchyard.

On a sunny day in particular, this central City fixture, with its tucked-away location off Bow Churchyard is just the job, thanks to its quiet setting and al fresco patio; limited but positive feedback too on its traditional Italian fare.

This “good value” Italian is “still one of the most relaxing restaurants in the City”: “well run, pleasant, efficient, helpful and upmarket”, while “the al fresco patio is great in warm weather”. Critics, though, feel it sells itself short: “somehow my heart never quite sings, even though nothing is missed and it’s always a pleasure”.

Reviewed 3 months, 26 days ago

"The lunchtime menu is very good, especially the fish dishes from Sicily. However the tables are close together and it can get rather noisy if you are trying to have a quitter conversation."
