Harden's survey result
“Almost invisible from the outside”, this 10-year-old local near Archway “makes you feel like you’re in Italy” and serves “excellent Sardinian/Sicilian food”. The name is a tribute to founder chef Mario Magli’s favourite Fiat Cinquecento, and a nod to the minuscule proportions of the venue (“whose hard walls can make it noisy”).
“Beautifully cooked Italian and Sicilian dishes” at this “excellent” little local near Archway make it “so much better than the generic pizza and pasta joints in the Holloway area”: “a real find, and well worth a journey to visit”.
“A haven of good food in an area not famed for gastronomy” – this “sincere, friendly and convivial” Holloway Italian provides “excellent” Sicilian food, and it’s “great value” too.
“An unpromising-looking bit of Holloway hides this Italian treasure which is almost always packed”; the interior is “quite minimal”, but it serves “well thought out”, “seasonal” Sicilian fare, from a “small but unusual menu” (albeit one that “could do with rotating a little more”).
