This “fun” Tuscan tapas bar on a Chelsea corner is, say fans, “everything a local Italian should be”, and celebrates its 30th anniversary next year. “It knows what it’s good at and does it very, very well”“though not exceptional, it’s reasonably priced for SW3; and always relaxed and informal”.

This “welcoming neighbourhood spot” on a Chelsea corner “won’t win awards – but it won’t let you down” with its “reliably tasty” Tuscan cooking. “The only downside is if you go late, the noise level is high.”

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 “great neighbourhood favourite” on a Chelsea corner wins solid marks for its “genuine Italian food”, “with Riccardo himself ensuring you’re well looked after”. It’s “cheap ’n’ cheerful” with a “lovely informal environment”“perfect for family Sunday lunch with dog under the table and children throwing pasta over each other”.

"Good though not exceptional food and wine at Chelsea prices. A plus is that practically the whole food menue is also available as tapas / small dishes. As always relaxed and informal."
