Last minute booking for a table on a Saturday night and just what we wanted. A small, family run restaurant with great food and attentive service. We’ll definitely be back.

Beautiful, small restaurant with cracking food. Really enjoyed our visit although the steep stairs to the loo became slightly more challenging after a couple of drinks!

Felt safe without Covid measures being so obvious that they spoilt the evening.

It was our first visit but we'll make this one of our staples from now on. Loved it.

Booked because nowhere we knew and liked in Richmond had a table for 4 at the time we wanted on a Saturday night - Our good fortune because we've discovered a great friendly relaxed restaurant - 2 small rooms, one above the other - Upstairs is particularly pretty - Really nice service and very good and reasonably priced Italian food - We will definitely be back

The food was nice but not great, main courses were served on a cold plate and food was not that hot. Service was good, the place has potential maybe we were just unlucky.

Dinner for two early on a Saturday evening to celebrate a birthday, so it was relatively quiet. The service was very good and the food, as ever, was excellent. A great place for an intimate dinner.

As a suggestion I recommend the restaurant offers a buisness lunch from a reduced menu, 2 coarses for a fixed price it will help bring more clients in if advertised correctly.

Not your big standard Italian but a little bit different. Pasta is a speciality but always served in a refined way. It's a tiny intimate restaurant and good value too

The site is not really accessible to people with mobility issues as it is very small, the loos are upstairs and the stair are very steep. That said, it's a lovely venue - small and quaint and intimate. The food was authentic and delicious; the staff were charming and the prices were very reasonable. I will definitely go back and would recommend to friends.

Great meal - everything was delicious! We had the bruschetta and the mushrooms to start - super tasty. My wife had the Trofie and I went for the Lamb Ragú. Great local Italian restaurant. Perfect for a weekend treat!
