The dead cute location, off Hampstead High Street, and trattoria interior – with a “nice and old-fashioned feel” – has changed little in three decades at this enduring Italian. Some reporters are mightily impressed by the “delicious” traditional fare; for others it’s only average, with other gripes including “noise levels that make meaningful conversation difficult” or slightly “attitude-y” service.

This “very traditional Italian” in a prime Hampstead spot “hasn’t changed much (except the prices)” for the past three decades. 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”.

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. 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).
