Summary

Now in its 20th year, this World’s End trattoria feels “like a private club” thanks to the “consistently warm welcome” extended by its charismatic owner, Bucci. It’s a “family favourite” for both “fun and quality”, and “if the food is not always quite perfect, the atmosphere and conviviality make up for that!”.

Summary

The owner Bucci “makes the place, he couldn’t be more welcoming” at this World’s End “gem”, which inspires a small but passionate fan club. “Standards are high” and results from the menu (enhanced by blackboard specials) are delivered in “huge portions”. “We’ve been going for years and the whole family feel at home here – young and old”.

Summary

Expect much “bonhomie” (“you ’ll be made to feel like a long lost brother!”) from the owner of this World’s End Italian; the cooking is generally reliable, but primarily it’s “always fun” (and “excellent for families”).

"the food was awful, they can't make pasta, couldn't finish my dish it was so bad. Very rude service and not a nice place at all. More expensive than the brilliant and most delicious well established Caraffini and Ziani. Will certainly not recommend."

"Great restaurant for a relaxed Italian near World's End in Chelsea. A very reasonably priced lunch many has multiple choices of (mains) pasta, fish and meat dishes. A favourite haunt for meeting friends."
