“There’s a friendly buzz” at this pair of “good-value neighbourhood Italians” in South Kensington and Dulwich Village, which are handy for most occasions: “reliable for an informal business lunch”, but equally “very child-friendly” and “perfect for a family meal with half portions of everything for kids”. On top of that, the “food is actually not bad at all – better pizzas than the chains and decent enough fresh pasta”.

These “cosy, busy and good-value” local Italians in South Kensington and Dulwich do the simple things well: “handmade pasta, great pizzas and lovely service”. “Perfect for families – kids are well-treated” (so “it can be a bit of a creche if you go at the wrong time”).

“Good solid traditional Italian fare” helps fuel the “lively” and “extremely friendly” atmosphere at these South Kensington and Dulwich Village locals, whose “big selling point for parents is that they like children who eat properly (so anything from the main menu is approx. half price)”. “Pizza is not only better than PizzaExpress across the road, but cheaper”.

Just awful. Will not be returning. Ordere...

"Just awful. Will not be returning. Ordered Salt-cod fritters - received definitely tinned tuna fritters. But when asked waitress about the dark meat and questionable ‘cod’ she stayed definitely fish. Then on to the seafood risotto. Well if you have walls that need papering then do try, otherwise just stodgy sprinkled with two prawns, two small clams and three mussels. My partner had the wild rabbit parpadelle. Should be renamed as parpadelle with the single spoonful of rabbit. Went as we are local to area and looking for alternative local option. This is not it. Avoid. Oh. Apparently the pizza is ok."
