This “very traditional Italian” in a prime Hampstead spot “hasn’t changed much (except the prices)” for the past 30 years. Its enviable location, tucked away off the main drag, explains much of its appeal, as does a “formal but un-snooty” style that’s not to all tastes, but helps attract “lots of buzz (and some celebs!)”. Some fans applaud the fare as “well-cooked in generous portions”, others say it’s merely “fair”.

“Old-style Italian” whose popularity is underpinned by its gorgeous central Hampstead location and comfortable, retro decor. Fans acclaim it as a “top-end” destination of some accomplishment: those with less rose-tinted glasses say “it’s a nice place to sit, but with overpriced and variable food that’s no better than a tourist venue in Italy itself”.

This stalwart Hampstead Italian is “a reassuring time warp” for fans, bowled over by its hyper-cute village location and ’70s-style glamour. A fair assessment is that “it’s not bad, not brilliant – just a nice place to be”.

“This Hampstead veteran continues to churn out classic Italian fare”“great pasta, fish and steaks/veal” – in a “proper, unpretentious setting” replete with “1970s Capri-style elegance”. Even fans, though, can find the cooking a tad “uninspired” (“tasty, but the usual Italian panache is absent”).

"Very average Italian food at high prices. The ambience ought to be great but it is all too rushed."
