We had a table for four on a quiet Sunday luchtime with only a few other tables occupied so we enjoyed personal and attentive service from the charming waitresses. The food was exceptional. My lobster tagliolini (with home made fresh egg pasta) was full-flavoured and very well seasoned. The pizza Napolitana (with extra chilli) , roast chicken and penne arrabiata ordered by my companions were all judged to be very good indeed. Four very clean plates remained after we finished eating our main courses! Starters - especially the parma ham-wrapped tiger prawns - and desserts - wonderful semi-freddo - were also of a really high standard and there is a good value wine list. Eating here is often a bustling and typically Italian experience so it was a nice change to eat when the restaurant was quiet. Highly recommend the experience.
Lovely restaurant in Balham. Service personal and attentive. Starters were excellent. Portions very generous. A little disappointed with the pasta dishes. Did not taste truly authentically Italian however overall a great experience. Really good value for money. The pizzas looked superb and will be my choice on the next visit
