Summary

“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”.

Summary

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”.

Summary

“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”).

Summary

“Well-located off Hampstead High Street in a quaint little alleyway”“an old school ‘silver service’ trattoria”, where “all the standard Italian dishes are served”; to its very dedicated fan cub it’s “not a wow, but a safe bet”, but to its detractors “it’s shocking and tired”.
