“Friendly, neighbourhood Italian”, now in its 31st year, that serves “good” if fairly standard food, and – following the lockdown puppy explosion – can appear to “welcome almost as many dogs as human customers”. The only real problem is its popularity, which means it “can be a bit crowded as tables are very close to each other”. If you can’t squeeze in, its two younger siblings in the same street, Essenza and Mediterraneo, are worth a try.

“A good package of food and buzz”, this “classic Italian trattoria” has served Notting Hill for three decades – “and delivers the goods reliably and with panache”. It has two younger stablemates in the same street – Essenza and Mediterraneo.

For 32 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).
