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”.

“Rich and interesting Neapolitan home cooking” makes this “delightful and idiosyncratic neighbourhood Italian” in Finsbury Park a “real find”: an “all-female outfit” run by the owner, Paola, who shares with you her “enthusiasm and love of food”. Just one request: “the savoury tomato-based sauces can all blend into one another – a tweak to differentiate them would unlock even more potential in the place”.
