Recently presented with a 2012 award from the Italian Chamber of Commerce for quality, Masaniello is situated moments from the river on Twickenham’s Church Street. Opened in 2009, Masaniello remains one of the town’s most celebrated dining rooms, providing a level of authenticity rarely seen in British Italian restaurants, not only in the food but in the atmosphere; equal parts friendly and family orientated, professional and sleek. The interior is classically styled in dark wood and cream, providing a warm, intimate setting for fine dining as well as lovely AL Fresco terrace. Head Chef Livio and manager Maria Lucia share a passion for the world of restaurants and the food of Italy, especially the Neapolitan region, from which the menu takes much inspiration, balancing rural and seafood ingredients in flavorful and colorful dishes cooked to order using the freshest and best ingredients or, where needed slow cooked in advance to maximize taste.

    We went for a delayed wedding anniversary meal on a Saturday evening. Unfortunately we had negkected the fact that the Sevens was on at RFU! Twickenham was mobbed with good natured and well lubricated young people. Thd restaurant was nit full but it was quite noisy and not their fault of course. The food and service was very good but we wanted an intimate dinner. We just went on the wrong night!

    Great friendly welcome at Masaniello. Lots of veggie dishes and a good wine list at very reasonable prices. Authentic Italian cooking and restaurant, I had a lovely aubergine pasta though prefer traditional tiramisu than the pistachio one they served.

    Have visited this restaurant on a number of occasions and the food and service are consistently good. Lots of choice and everything cooked beautifully and served piping hot. The seafood dish I chose was fabulous - chock full of shellfish - and such a big portion, I had to take some home!

    One of the best restaurants in Twickenham..if not the best. Authentic and extremely tasty Neapolitan food. The staff are incredibly friendly ( it helps the staff are Italian too and know their menu extremely well). When you see crowds of happy italians eating in an Italian restaurant outside of Italy, it's a good sign!!! Couldn't recommend a better Italian place in West London.

    Visited for lunch before rugby match at Twickenham. The service was first class, efficient, friendly and quick. Our pizzas were both excellent with plenty of toppings and beautifully cooked base. Will be back next time we are in Twickenham.

    One of our places to go for either before or after a rugby match at The Stoop or Twickenham. Pleasant staff. Good basic food with a few twists on traditional Italian dishes. I like the Bruschetta with aubergine replacing the tomatoes.

    Lovely meal in a lovely restaurant . Unseasonally warm day but thankfully we had a table by the Front open windows . Service was fantastic . We took ages to order as we were too busy chatting but that wasn’t a problem for the restaurant and they let us take our time . The staff were so friendly and accommodating . Would definitely recommend and would go back .

    A lovely little restaurant on Church Street. Very unassuming but cozy & friendly ambiance. Very pleasant staff. The food was lovely - I had their signature ragu pasta (delicious) & my friend had their house pizza (her abiding favourite). We shared a starter of octopus, which was tasty but a little chewy & very expensive for the portion at £10.50. Overall, definitely on my list for a more than decent local Italian.

    There are a wealth of Italian "trattorias" in the Twickenham/Teddington/Richmond area and they have to have something special to stand out. For Masaniello, it is the ambience and the service. The food is fine, prices are average for food and wines, but the place just buzzed. The FOH suprema was on the look all the time, but she didn't really need to be as the waiting staff were really on their game. Keep it up!

    Booked a table here on a Saturday night and the place was packed. It had a really good atmosphere,the team were really friendly and the service was great our waitress knew the menu inside out and advised us on her favourites. Our order came out reasonably quickly and was really good,the mozzarella was amazing and the pasta stunning. Definitely will go back,the only let down is the tables for two are tiny and you could only get one pasta bowl on it let alone two! Luckily another table had just left and the waitress was more than happy to move us

    Went to Masaniello and really enjoyed the atmosphere. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Nice menu with not only pizza and pasta but also some other interesting choices. I had the Grilled Spanish octopus, roasted aubergine, nduja dressing and smoked burrata cheese for a starter, which was very good and the calves liver for mains, cooked perfectly. My friend had the fish casserole, which was full of different ingredients. Again very good. Recommended and would definitely go back

Apart from home and Italy, Masaniello is the only place she will eat pasta. That says it all. Thank you once again for an excellent afternoon's dining. Mike & Daniela

    Busy evening because of the rugby but at no point did we feel rushed. Service was excellent and all staff very friendly and welcoming. Food was excellent, certainly the starters and pasta we had were a bit different from the run of the mill Italian restaurants. House wine good value.
