Harden's says

An excellent array of Sardinian wine is a highpoint (one of the backers is a wine distributor) at this informal Italian, which opened in spring 2019. Made more desirable by its cute neighbourhood location in ultra-desirable Primrose Hill – it received a big early thumbs up for its cucina from someone with strong family ties to the area: Evening Standard (now Tatler) critic, Fay Maschler.

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

A small, well-chosen array of Sardinian wine – including many “small growers” – is a highpoint (one of the backers is a wine distributor) at this informal Italian deli/wine shop, which opened in spring 2019. “The menu likewise is small, simple and well-executed”, including “good, fresh pasta as you’d expect”. Made more desirable by its cute neighbourhood location in ultra-desirable Primrose Hill – it received a big early thumbs-up for its cucina from someone with strong family ties to the area: Evening Standard (now Tatler) critic, Fay Maschler. “It’s a little pricey, but you pay for the postcode plus they only have about a dozen covers”.

For 31 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.

"The menu is small but interesting. 6 of us enjoyed our meal but not as much as usual. Most of our main courses were barely tepid. However, the roast potatoes were massively hot. The heat and mushy consistency was just like from a microwave. They said they do not use a microwave. Desserts are small. Price for 2 with service but NOT including wine was £125."
