Great for some pasta and a glass of wine. Unusual, fresh & delicious. Service slightly misfired on occasion, but overall friendly & hospitable. Worth a look if in the area.

My third trip to L’Amorosa which never fails to deliver an exemplary dining experience.

The food is fresh, seasonal, generous in flavour and amount and a pleasure to look at. I haven’t explored the wine list so can’t comment on it.

The only slight niggle is that the service can be a bit slow if the restaurant is busy but that’s a small price to pay for having such a quality neighbourhood restaurant.

L'Amorosa seems to have lost its way. The remarkable dishes of carefully prepared, extraordinary pasta have given way to big plates of everyday carbo fuel. The service is loud, careless and free/dull pudding does not compensate for any of this.

Great service, delicious food using excellent ingredients - always have a fantastic meal every time we come. Menu changes regularly and seasonally so always have a different choice to chose from. Well worth a visit

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Chiswick/Hammersmith. I enjoyed a delicious, quiet dinner by myself last week. The staff is so nice and the food feels so healthy and fresh and seasonal.

We thought this would be ordinary Italian food. L’Amorosa is high end Italian food on the high street.
The home made pasta with lamb ragu was delicious. Usually we are not tempted with Italian desserts but here they were excellent
Service was thoughtful and efficient and ambience, although not exceptional was pleasant and restful

An hidden gem in Hammersmith (so close to Chiswick)
Food is great and very tasty.
Wine by the glass very reasonable priced.
Will go back for sure

In a world where paying way over the odds for something as basic as a burger n fries is the norm, it’s great to go somewhere that knows how to do delicious food at a sensible price. I had pasta parcels stuffed with shoulder of lamb in a ragu and it was worth every penny of its £16. Would highly recommend L’Amorosa.

Was awesome place. Small but great menu. We had pasta with lamb ragu, just incredible. And service felt like being served by a friend. When we are in london again, we will return. New Yorkers who love finding gem restaurants.

Beautifully cooked dish of ravioli containing burratta and prawns in a tomato sauce.
Tasted brilliant with great depth in the sauce. A perfect dish for a cold evening served
with style by Hannah. Vermentino excellent to match.

Beautiful food prepared by a chef who knows exactly what he is doing. The menu is concise so the chef is always in control, and I have paid much, much more in Mayfair for food nowhere near as good.
All in all, a very good night out that even impressed my mate, the CEO of a large company who has eaten well all over the world.

Second time at l'Amorosa. The food is really good and authentic (to an Italian). Good wine list. I would love to have more choice of pasta however I would not wish to see a much expanded menu at the expense of quality

Fantastic local restaurant, we eat here very regularly. The food is always excellent with interesting daily specials. The staff are friendly and the atmosphere is friendly too. The food would not be out of place in a top, central London restaurant so I am doubly delighted to have L'Amerosa on my doorstep. Superb food at an excellent price just around the corner. It is everything you would want from a local restaurant.

Top notch, authentic Italian food, prepared with care and attention, using excellent ingredients, all attractively presented by a great chef.
Nicely decorated, understated locale where people can talk without any deafening music.
Good wine list with lots of choice at different price points.
Portions well thought out and generous.
The chef was visible, and clearly enjoying his work .
Service a little uneven.
Excellent espresso, and dishes of the day were excellent too.
Will definitely be back.

I love this little secret hide away i!!

Have been coming since it opened Abd the food never disappoints !!

I took a Friend who was VERY IMPRESSED
The only downside is they keep the upstairs door open and can be draughts , and you can see the toilet door whilst eating !

So spoiling the atmosphere a little !
Upstairs is really cosy and intimate !

But the food and service is excellent !
Don't forget to leave a TOP as service isn't included x
