* Based on a three course dinner, half a bottle of wine, coffee, cover charge, service and VAT.

This “friendly” Finsbury Park local is “just what a neighbourhood Italian should be”“an (occasionally) opera-singing waiter delivers a menu that’s limited but all good, with vegetarian options”, and there’s “a pleasant outside terrace”. Strong points noted in its Neapolitan-based repertoire include home-made pasta, and also branzino (European bass).

This “Italian gem” in Finsbury Park has locals purring with its “wonderful homemade pasta” and “brilliant service from Paola and her team”“we were a fussy group aged 7 to 75 and the staff catered for our every desire”. Yes, there’s “a singing waiter”, but “it’s not cringe-worthy, he’s really good!”.

This intimate Finsbury Park local, where proprietor Paola greets each customer, has a sensibly “limited menu” of “interesting” Neapolitan home cooking (no pizza) – “but what they do, they do well”.

"Local starring an opera singing waiter where like us you might find a fellow diner's well behaved pooch snoozing by your chair. Portions are generous, so go for the starter size and share. And leave room for the perfectly-sized cafe tufo coffee with marscapone. "
