In a quiet location below Primrose Hill, this little Italian – specialising in Piedmontese cuisine – has long been a feature of the area, and has built a very loyal, local following. Reports were a little more hit-and-miss this year on the food front, but fans say that “the garden on a summer’s day more than makes up for any average dishes”.

“Piedmontese cuisine that’s unusual and very well executed” and some “very good house wines” have carved a dedicated following for this “traditional Italian with a modern twist”, tucked away on the fringes of Primrose Hill – a “romantic” spot, whose “ambience is exceptional in the garden in summer”.

For 30 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).
