Italian
What you love about Italy is here in Notting Hill. This storefront restaurant offers the charm, warmth, and friendliness of the Italians as well as their unsurpassed cuisine in a dining room that is welcoming to all. The menu is classic Italian, with starters of prosciutto and melon, pizzas, pastas like traditional lasagne al forno, main of veal piccata in butter and lemon sauce, and pudding of zabaglione for two. Linger over a bottle of wine and then the superb coffee. The decor is low-key and comfortable and they won't throw you off the table if you're enjoying a long meal.

We cannot recommend more if you're looking for a relaxed, low key experience. This is a wonderful family run restaurant, with excellent home cooked dishes.

A welcome return to some semblance of normality. We have eaten here for several years and know Marco and his father well. Such a relief to find Marco at the helm and serving his clients with characteristic friendliness and efficiency post C-19. I actually find the experience even better than before now that the central row of tables have been removed.

We ate dinner at restaurants in London for 11 days. This restaurant was overall better than any other. The value for the money, the service and most of all the awesome food were out of this world. If we are ever back here again this will stay on our list.

Lovely to see this restaurant still going strong, good traditional Italian cooking with no pretentiousness. The food is excellent and loads of choice for non-meat-eaters like myself. It feels like they really care that you enjoy the food. Also a good and reasonably priced wine selection with the option of having a small carafe on some of the wines which is great when people want different ones. A local gem.

So easy to find this everyday outing!
A friendly and cosy place with traditional italian food.
Fantastic pizza and great spaghetti cooked to perfection and the day dishes are just magnificent. What a taste and tenderness for the osso bucco dish.
The owner is so welcoming and the service quick and polite.
Well done italians!

Still our favorite Italian restaurant in the world. Delicious, authentic food in a family run, neighborhood establishment with reasonable prices. We look forward to returning every time we visit London. Staff are friendly and attentive. Food is delicious--we particularly loved the lasagna and pizza. There is also a very nice wine list.

I have loved this place for many years. Good family run restaurant, lovely food, generous portions, friendly service and delicious wines. So nice to see an independent restaurant lasting so long without losing any of it's charm.

My wife and I went here for dinner after an evening performance at the Royal Albert Hall. They were still open and happy to have customers at that time, and so friendly. The food and atmosphere were wonderful. It wasn't very busy by that time of night and the predominant language being spoken both by staff and diners was Italian. It really did feel like we truely were in an Italian restaurant. We'll definitely go back there again.

It was rather expensive for what was provided and the garlic bread, though complimentary, was burnt round the edges.
Otherwise excellent. Stracciatelli alla Romana was delicious, as was the Veal

This is a family owned restaurant that is obviously very popular with locals - always a good sign. Booking is a good idea as it is reasonably small - makes for nice ambiance and intimate dining. Food was very good and service was great. The wine recommendation of the ?week ?month, was brilliant (we love our wines, but have limited knowledge of Italian reds, and this one was excellent).

I go regularly. Food is fresh and good. Authentic. Open kitchen. Feels like being at a traditional family run restaurant in Italy. I always take people with me and everyone enjoys it. Never had a bad experience. London is short of these lovely independent restaurants.
