“Authentic and exceptional” Italian cuisine, with “classics done well” alongside “seasonal and Tuscan specials”, hits the spot at this family-run Marylebone venue. The upstairs dining room “can be a bit austere if less than half full”, and there’s also an informal bar and café downstairs.

“Real Italian food” – and “not a giant pepper-grinder in sight” – is on the menu at this “reliably enjoyable” old-school venture in Marylebone (“not too starched, but certainly smart and formal enough”). Downstairs is a wine bar with antipasti, while the upstairs dining room specialises in Tuscan dishes.

This congenial “old-school Italian” in Marylebone Lane provides antipasti, light meals and wine in the downstairs bar and full-scale dining upstairs. Many reporters praise the “exceptional and good-value” Tuscan cuisine, but marks were hit this year by a couple of “disappointing” reports.

“Wonderful, authentic Italian food” with an emphasis on robust Tuscan flavours makes this “no-nonsense” Marylebone fixture “a treat”. “It’s always full of Italians, which speaks volumes for the quality on offer”.
