I love this restaurant. Even during covid / social distancing times it has felt intimate, cosy and special.
There are screens to protect customers (perspex so that the overall sense of the restaurant isn't hindered) and the service is respectful, clean and safe.
The food is excellent with so much choice and great fresh quality. My favourites are the pumpkin ravioli (beautifully light) and the wild boar risotto (beautifully rich).
I will be back time and time again.

We eat here regularly and it is consistently excellent. The food is well cooked and well presented, good "family style" Italian food. The service is always warm and welcoming. The wine list is comprehensive but we can always get help and a recommendation - not being so familiar with Italian wines.
They also have a small delicatessen full of great foods.

Consistently very high quality, if they could only start doing a reasonable sized cheese portion (ala Gordon's Wine Bar), they would be hard to beat.

Given that it was the last night before lockdown, and every table was full, it wasn’t bad. Unfortunately the food wasn’t up to the usual standard. Pasta dish was dry and we didn’t like to complain because waitress was just run off her feet.
We will definitely return because we love your restaurant and under normal circumstances we have had some really good meals.

Simple and delicious as usual. The seabass fillet was simply perfect. Ask for help on wine, great advice from the boss himself.

This place is/was one of my regular haunts. It was never cheap and now its pricey. We had a non descriptive bottle of Puglia wine, same starter - toasted ciabatta with spicy anchovy , followed by wild pig ravioli (slightly undercooked possibly and not sure whether it came from a packet like they sell in Waitrose) and my friend meatballs. Fairly basic stuff and the bill was more than £77.

Delicious and authentic- very fresh. Great for light meals as tapas - style selections but also great for full meal. Service feels very personal. The manager is very visible and welcoming.

The restaurant's recommendation for wine was a very expensive bottle - we made a mistake in choosing this one. We'll be more aware next time ...

Lovely food, the social distancing piece done well too. Only slight issue was the music, it had a really heavy beat, made it hard to hear my friends. Great experience though, would book again.

Tasty food, great wine list.
Cousy restaurant The waitress was very helpful, friendly and professional.
The only negative point was that we were rushed out with the bill, without even asked for it(it was 9 pm)

Excellent home made pasta ravioli. Our table was cramped for 3 especially as we were from two house holds. They could not move us as they were fully booked.

A Covid secure restaurant with partitions between the tables. Still the same menu and excellent taste. Quite pricey for the portion size, service style and ambience. Nevertheless we will undoubtedly return.
