Harden's says

London’s appetite for fresh pasta specialists remains undimmed (Pastaio, Padella, Pastifico all spring to mind). The latest addition is this Covent Garden-fringe venture from William Ellner (of Joanna’s in Crystal Palace) and David Ramsey with ex-Locanda Locatelli chef Louis Korovilas in the kitchen whipping up the likes of pappardelle with kid goat and rosemary ragù. There’s also an aperiviti and cicchetti bar.

"Amazing pasta, but also really interesting and beautiful starters and the best dessert I've ever tried. Amazing prices for central location and super friendly staff. We also used the private dining space for our office Christmas meal which was very special."

"Delicious fresh pasta and all very testy. Some nice dishes but the hankies with confit egg and walnuts really great. Good efficient service and not the long wait of certain other pasta places for equally good food."
