Superb meal as always. This hidden gem is my favourite.
We were greeted with a very warm welcome, staff members were super friendly and the service was excellent! The food (and wine) was absolutely delicious and the atmosphere was also great! There were lots of customers which is always a great sign. Will definitely be going again!
Fantastic staff and wonderful food. Outstanding night out!
My favourite place to eat in Balham! The owner and all the staff are lovely, food exceptional and quick service!
I am so happy this place is open for dining again! The food is delicious and we felt comfortable as everything is well spaced and aired. Highly recommend.
Best italian so far in Balham area. Will go back. Great staff, great service, very good with kids and great food
Best Italian restaurant I’ve ever been!!
Service and food are amazing!
Good portions and nice prices.
The staff is really friendly !
Will definitely come again !!!
Went on a date and was definitely not disappointed. It is a small place, but cosy.
It suits both casual meals as well as a special occasion. The environment and the staff were friendly and welcoming.
They have a good range of food. I had Ravioli and my date had Risotto which they were both delicious. Will definitely go back.
We ate on the last night before restaurants closed. I can only hope this wonderful restaurant with it's friendly and wonderful owner and staff can weather this horrible time. I hope to write another review of my family's favourite place soon,
Good service, friendly authentic Italian staff and food
Always great food and a warm welcome attentive service and a great atmosphere.
Excellent restaurant with good food, great service (lovely family run atmosphere with attentive but not overbearing service) and perfect atmosphere. There was a great buzz in the restaurant, but we could speak comfortably which is hard to achieve! Large portions and great value too. Highly recommend and will be back.
It was very nice food, good service and b=nice atmosphere at the restaurant
Service and food here is great.
Really authentic Italian local and delicious food. A little gem!
An easy reccomend to anyone interest in great food
our first visit to this restaurant. that’s exactly what we are missing in central London. really excellent and simple food, like in Italy. relaxed atmosphere. incredibly correct prices (even wine .....). we will be going back as long as we live in London !! thank you Chef!
Fantastic food, lovely service and all for a reasonable price. Would highly recommend!
As always, a friendly welcome, excellent food and quite superb Italian wines that you just don't see anywhere else. Great value too
Dont normally leave reviews but this place deserves it. Came mid week for a low key anniversary dinner and cannot fault it. Perfect ambience, attentive service, and delicious food. All in all a wonderful experience and will be back again !
Love this place so much. Our local Italian and even if it wasn't local, I'd make sure it was anyway. The food, the people it's perfect!
Such delicious food and wine! Thank you for a wonderful evening
Amazing as usual, outstanding food and great service.
Our dinner group experienced racism from the staff.
The food was decent, but sadly their treatment towards us ruined the experience.
Great food, service and they were great with our kids as we went for an early dinner with our daughters, one of whom was celebrating her birthday. Staff couldn’t have been any better
We have been before and keep coming back, lovely atmosphere, good food, good service and well priced what more could you want.
Delicious, authentic and great value Italian food. The menu is plentiful, varied and my only negative was that there were no marked vegan options on the menu - which would have been helpful!
What an amazing gem of a place. The food was amazing, as well as the atmosphere and ambiance. My wife had a salad with steak, the best tender steak we’ve tasted from a restaurant in a while. The pasta did not disappoint either! Flavourful!! Good house wines, red and white, great homey Italian feel. Amazing dessert as well. It was quite busy for a Tuesday night. All round, a wonderful date night and perfect choice in destination.
Lovely meal and friendly service. Wine available by the glass at very reasonable price. Sardines for starter were excellent.
Centrally located this restaurant serves authentic North Italian food. Good portions and delicious.
Excellent service and a good wine list
Service and food good, very big portions bu able to take a doggy bag. Very helpful waitresses. Will definitedly return.
Authentic Italian food , with large portions. The staff are very friendly and recognised us even though this was only our second visit. Obviously a lot of Italian food comes with cheese, but as someone who is allergic to it I would have liked more non-cheese options. The premises are small, so the tables are very close together, which makes it very noisy. Not, perhaps, the place for an intimate meal. It is quite expensive - expect to pay £50 a head if you have a bottle of wine with your meal. Nonetheless, the food is very good and the staff ensure a friendly ambiance, so I would definitely go again.
A relaxed but delightful meal in what is clearly a popular restaurant with well presented and really good food. Two of our group really enjoyed the calves liver and I enjoyed sea bass very much - both meat and fish served with a generous portion of lovely vegetables and we enjoyed an excellent bottle of Merlot wine and plenty of fresh water. Staff were welcoming and attentive without being obtrusive, making our evening very enjoyable indeed.
This is the third time we've been. As usual the food and service was excellent. I made an error with the OpenTable booking in that I booked for 2 when I meant 3. They still made an effort to seat us even though the restaurant was fully booked.
Such a lovely evening. Great food and great people.
Very friendly, authentic Italian restaurant. Portions large, food tasty - homemade tiramisu out of this world. Service is not included, so beware.
Love this place and it never disappoints. The food was delicious with very generous portions. It really was good value for money. The only gripe is that we would have preferred a different table. We didn’t raise this with the restaurant, so there is little room for complaint. We will return again very soon.
Some of the beat Italian I have ever eaten, really friendly staff and wonderful ambiance.
Vraiment formidable. Un réel italien, rare!.
Service efficace, attentif, mais détendu.
Un patron discret mais très présent, totalement dédié à sa cuisine authentique. Bonheur chez lui!
Amazing service and food! Have been before and would go again without a doubt. Unfortunately, there was a big party with about 10 kids and 6 adults with all of the kids down one end of the table, which we were unfortunate enough to be sat right next to. They were very loud and kept bumping into my chair (which was uncomfortable as I’m 8 months pregnant) but that wasn’t really the restaurants fault - I imagined they struggled too. Once the party left, about half way through our meal, the atmosphere was perfect!
