This “hidden gem near Brook Green”, with “authentic and imaginative home-made Italian food”, is an “absolute favourite neighbourhood restaurant”. “The lovely couple who own it” – chef Michele and front-of-house Heidi – “are so friendly and passionate about their cuisine”, while “standards are constantly improving” – especially “now that they change the menu regularly”.

“Michele in the kitchen cooks up a dream and Heidi looks after the front of house beautifully” at this “very charming” backstreet Olympia favourite. The result is “delightful and imaginative Italian food” from a “short seasonal menu” served in a “lovely and low-key” setting that makes it a “perfect local”, and one that folks travel for.

“We love it!” – neighbourhood restaurants “don’t come much better” than this “lovely” (and affordable) contemporary Italian in the backstreets of Olympia, where “Michele in the kitchen always delivers wonderful food, while Heidi is always charming as front of house”. One gripe: “please could they vary their menu a bit more – we’d eat there far more if we hadn’t already seen it all!”

This “smart” and “charming” Italian in the backstreets of Olympia is “just what a local restaurant should be”: “a great all-round experience”, with “quality at decent prices” and “interesting” cooking (although “the menu doesn’t change very frequently”).

"Everything is very nice about this local Italian in the back streets of Brook Green. Nothing spectacular, but a very nice menu of Italian classics with a twist, a well-priced wine list, very friendly and welcoming service and a gentle buzz."
