It’s “nice to sit under the canopy on a summer’s evening”, even if it “can be crowded and noisy”, at this “well-established neighbourhood Italian”, on a prominent Chelsea corner site. An early exponent of serving Italian food tapas-style, it still wins praise for its “reasonable prices” and dependable standards.

This “little slice of Italy with a sunny terrace” in Chelsea “attracts a loyal clientele” despite quite a widespread feeling that it’s nowadays “tired” and “without flair”. But those who are more forgiving feel it’s a “real antidote to the Italian-themed chains” with “always a great welcome” perhaps from the man himself: “people say the food’s hit and miss, but stick to the staples and all will be well”.

For 31 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).
