Always absolutely Delicious. Small, cosy, relaxed and traditional Italian restaurant with a great menu, featuring some Venetian specialities that they are known for. Perfect Pizzas, great wines and always a lovely welcome. Couldn't recommend it more. Adrian

This is a tiny gem of a restaurant.
Fronted by delightful Lucia and Federica...these ladies know their fish!
Our meal was even better than usual. Lucia was observing their new chef and the results were spectacular. I can recommend the Zuppa di Pesce unreservedly.
Their Pizzas are also excellent. Don't go to a chain when you can have food this good and such good value.

Really lovely homemade Italian food with quality ingredients - we had pizza and pasta and both were very good. Felt like you were coming home for your tea! Charming service, a very nice Montepulciano sold by carafe (which was great as we didn’t want a full bottle but didn’t want the house) and a comfortable atmosphere. Will return!

An excellent boutique restaurant hidden away in north Kentish Town. Family run, and incredibly friendly. The food is outstanding - homemade pasta and very rich in flavour.

This is a true local gem. Two lovely ladies from the Veneto and their fantastic chef (he is, after all, Franco) serve wonderful food with real imagination and fantastic flavours. We love it and it is our special restaurant of choice. The range of pizza toppings are just delicious (see what I did there?) and the short wine list is superb.

This is a great little find in Kentish town, the food is amazing, tasty and feels light.
It's a family run place and very welcoming.
The service is Great, friendly and happy to help with what is nice on the menu.
I love the price of it too as the food is so delicious. Give it ago, make sure you book before hand, as places are limited.
You will not be disappointed, you will walk out on a high.
I can't recommend it enough.
But this just my opinion!
Enjoy.

I don’t visit this part of the world very often, but when I do I come here. It’s a cosy place, the staff are always attentive and friendly and the food is always good and tastes like authentic home cooked Italian cuisine. Never disappoints!!

We went for valentines and were looked after extremely well, given lots of extras like chocolates and a rose. Portions are large and great value, really authentic Italian pizzas and tiramisu was wonderful! Ambiance is also great for an evening meal. Would highly recommend going to the shop rather than ordering a takeout pizza as they’re much hotter!

Food was amazing, could not complain about a single thing. The women who served us were very lovely, giving lots of information about Italy. Service was a bit slow at times, but have found my new favourite Italian restaurant.

Came here for a meal before Songhoy Blues at the Forum.
Ordered beers and house Orvietto and 4 pizzas. The pizza dough was perfect light,chewy,flavorfull and thin. The four different toppings were classic Napoli pizzas and perfect. Best pizza in LONDON at the moment... The owners actually invented the type of pizza oven that stands in the middle of the Restaurant which is now sold worldwide. Get a tabler near it and watch the spinning pizzas cook over flame. The family are VENITIAN so the the rest of the menu reflects this with as many risotto dishes as pasta.

We ate here before a gig at the nearby Forum, just over the road. Although the tables are very tightly packed in, the quality of the food, the service and the VFM are all excellent. It appears to be a traditional, family-run restaurant - the quality and care given to the dishes is so much better than going to a generic pizza/pasta chain. Highly recommended.

Am a regular, always good. Differentiated Italian regional cuisine from Veneto. A classic family-run neighbourhood restaurant. Outstanding service. Recommend the specials.
