Pam & Giuseppe re-opened the restaurant post-Covid in July 2020, for evenings only initially and – for the first time – for Sunday lunch.

“Astonishing Italian wine list: bravo signor Turi!” – Giuseppi and Pamela Turi are “now firmly ensconced in Pimlico having successfully weathered the transfer” three years ago from a more neighbourhood-y site near Putney Bridge (which they inhabited for over 20 years) to this much posher postcode; and they have brought with them their “amazing” cellar, which is perhaps London’s most notable selection of Italian vintages. They have also replicated their “delightful” personal touch at this “comfortable” new venue, and fans say “the food has really raised its game since the SW15 days”: “simple dishes, beautifully prepared”. Its ratings slipped a fraction this year though, with quite a few gripes that it seems increasingly “pricey”.

“A good transplant now working seamlessly in its new home” – Giuseppi and Pamela Turi shifted after decades in Putney to a new Pimlico site a couple of years ago, and their new gig is continuing to prove “a superb addition to the SW1 scene”. The “very traditional northern Italian food” is “consistently good”, the setting is “simple but elegant” and the experience is “amplified by the long-standing family ownership” as the Turis are “super hosts”. The big deal gastronomically speaking is the “HUGE” and “outstanding” Italian wine list “with an amazing selection of unusual and delicious vintages”“worth a visit in its own right” and “made more interesting by the inclusion of Giuseppi’s comments”.

“If you like Italian wine there is nowhere better in London” than Giuseppi and Pamela Turi’s Pimlico venture which – having lost their SW15 premises of decades standing due to a rent review – “has magnificently managed the tumultuous move from Putney to near Sloane Square”, and offers Sig. Turi’s “wonderful wine list, embellished by his own personal remarks”. Its new home is more “elegant” than its last, but it’s the “family touch that elevates the place above the norm” and “preserves what was good about its original incarnation, while becoming smarter”. The “trusty northern Italian menu augmented by seasonal daily specials” has also transplanted well, although some old regulars note that “overall it seems more expensive now, making it more of a special occasion than a regular treat”.

For 30 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).

"Great to see how full and buzzing it was on re-opening: the same virtues as of old, with service and ambience just topping the cooking."
