Summary

“Busy, fun and great value for money” – this “typical family-run Italian” (and there aren’t many of them left in Covent Garden) serves “really good classics, not just pasta”; but “the real bonus is the friendly service and buzz – when so many customers seem to be regulars, you know they must be doing something right!”.

Summary

“Old-fashioned”, “crowded and very noisy” neighbourhood Italian – a “star in the largely ho-hum Covent Garden gastronomic firmament”. “There’s always a warm welcome from the hosts”, along with “plenty of daily specials” at prices that are “easy on the wallet”.

"Since the change of ownership the standard of cooking in this much loved restaurant has slipped while the prices have increased. However its proximity to theatres means it is still busy."
