This upmarket Italian, just over the bridge from Richmond in St Margaret’s, continues to earn solid local praise for its “good food” and “excellent value”; and is also useful for rugby fans from further afield who want to make a full day of a game at nearby Twickenham.

For 31 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).
