Harden's says

Close to Earl's Court station, a modern take on the classic Italian neighbourhood trat, with pizza and pasta dominating the menu. So it's familiar comfort food with contemporary touches, including natural wines and a communal central table.

"Very friendly service, decent Italian food, expensive wine, nice and busy but small and tables very cosy, a little too cosy!"

What the Newspaper Critics are saying

The Observer

Jay Rayner was highly impressed by a new spot from the family that launched the Spaghetti House group back in 1955. The antipasti included “a truly delightful dish of smoked, thinly sliced tuna, with bite and tension, dressed with seriously good olive oil, then piled with a salad of ribbon-thin fennel and orange”, while the pappardelle with ragu was excellent – “perhaps unsurprisingly, given the company’s heritage”, and the thin and crispy crusted pizzas boasted “an uncommon subtlety to the toppings”.

“Not everything is great”, though. The sirloin steak tagliata “sits, completely
under-seasoned and looking sorry for itself, on one side of the plate, next to a wan pile of rocket”.

Worse still is “the bizarre drinks offering that, given the generally reasonable prices for the food, feels like a violent and aggressive act”, with the cheapest red or white wines priced at £35 a bottle. “It’s a wine list written for an entirely different business; one I’m not keen on visiting.”
