Food was bland and the staff were very rude, also left us waiting in the hall for about 15 mins while they stood about (had a reservation).

Food was great but service was inattentive. Had tonwait for 10 minutes at the door despite having a reservation, there was no one in front of us the staff seemed to choose to ignore us. When someone finally came over, they told us that we'd need to speak to a different member of staff seeing as we'd booked. So we waited again. It wasn't until I got the attention of said staff member that we finally got seated - no one seemed to care or eant to help. Not very welcoming!

Relaxed & authentic Italian, albeit surprisingly busy/noisy for a Sunday evening!
Good food, relaxed service - lovely not to feel rushed.
Would go again but sadly live too far away.

Booked a table but was still waiting outside for over 20mins. Were seated and then nobody approached us for nearly 30mins! So we left. And nobody bothered or even seemed to notice! If you can't accommodate, don't take so many bookings. Very disappointed indeed

We pre-booked for two which we told the greeter but we were not asked for the booking name or anything. Instead, were led downstairs to a table for four where we struggled to get the waiters’ attention. We were literally waving insanely and they pretended not to see multiple times.

When we finally ordered, the food wasn’t as good as it had been in the past. So not worth the long drive or shoddy service.

This was one of our favourite Italian places to go to, but we 100% will not be returning after that whole ordeal.

Great Italian food. Some dishes could feed more than one person.
Great place for a nice dinner with family!
If you do not smoke sit far from the small balcony in the front. Can become an issue and the tasteful dishes might loose some of the flavor because of the smoke smell.
Other than that. Great place!

Food always very good. It gets rightly very busy on match days such as today and you can see the pressure on the team to get food served. Sometimes food doesn’t all come out together, for example when some have pizza and others have pasta, but given the circumstances, this is still always a good place to eat

all good. very busy before a chelsea home game so best book. other than that the only comment from one of four of us was that the sauce for the pasta was a bit too creamy. it's a minor point

A disappointing experience at one of our go-to restaurants. Maybe a new chef, maybe a one-off experience, but well below the usual high standards. Simple bruschetta - usually fresh and delicious - was way too garlicky and soggy. Baked parmesan aubergine was warm in parts, possibly microwaved. My partner requested clams with white wine on spaghetti (done the last 2 times but unavailable this time) and was offered mussels instead. A bucket of mussels was served, no spaghetti, and without bread, but tasty nonetheless. The salmon was terribly overcooked and lifeless, and the side broccoli was either from a pack of frozen vegetables or boiled to oblivion. Last time I commented on the best salmon I’d eaten in London, this one was the worst. The spag bol was ok, but seemed a smaller (but still acceptable) portion. Overall very disappointing, but I will go back and try again, as it was such a surprise based on previous experiences

it's our favourite pre kick off restaurant befoe a Chelsea gane. Awesoe food, always super tasty, piping hot & pentliful. Great value and staff always very attentive, even when under pressure. Every memeber of the family finds something they love.

Only slight criticsm is that the waiting folk hand over the card machine with the additional tips button ready to be pushed (even after service has already been added to the bill). I'm not sure what the arrangement is but if the owners aren't handing their staff the service automatically, they should be - they do a great job. I

Most items you have asked our opinion of we’re very good however there was a noise problem, a continuing thumping throughout our mealtime which was more than distracting which was a pity as the staff worked so hard at making our time there memorable.
