This “wonderful family-run restaurant” with “lovely owners” is a rarity for the heart of St James’s – hidden away down an alleyway and popular for its “friendly staff and consistently good Italian food”, which – considering the pukka location – is “surprisingly well priced”.

“Surprisingly affordable” for St James’s – this family-run Italian is tucked down an “out-of-the-way” alley. Run with “efficiency and charm” by “the patron and his daughters”, “service is miraculous even when busy” – which is often. Recommended for both business lunchers, and family dinners.
