Family-run “cheap ’n’ cheerful” Highgate Italian that majors in pizza and pasta plus a variety of small dishes. “Went in for a quick bite and have gone back many times since as care is taken with small details”. In summer, “eating outside in the sunshine is a real treat”.

For 33 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).
