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!”.

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”).
