Italian
We are a small Italian restaurant in Nothing Hill, focusing on introducing to our restaurant diners, a personal take on the variety of regional dishes and wines that you may easily find in a small street “vicolo” of every city in Italy. The ideal or motto that we follow, is that the longevity of the relationship in the simplicity of pairing wine and food has served well the Italian way of healthy living that brings that Mediterranean Joye de Vivre to the table. Our experience in this life while eating and drinking should be of nutritional and enjoyable value.

An excellent restaurant, excellent food, wines and service!!
A real pity that Noce will be closing for good on August 31!
A few more days to sample some wonderful Italian tastes!

Nice, small Italian restaurant with wonderful food and service. The waiter wanted to ensure that we didn't just order food but that we enjoyed a food experience, pairing the best dishes with each other and the best wine with those dishes.

The maitre de/waiter was cordial, friendly, and helpful. He picked out a nice wine from an area we were unfamiliar with. It paired well with the delicious home-made pasta: ravioli and tortellini.

Bery good italian food. Great appetisers (fried zucchine, calamari) and pasta (vongole and a second one with ragù). The only big down size is the service. Very slow. Not at the level of the food.

Went to dinner with my wife and daughter for our final dinner of three weeks in London/Ireland and we were looking for neighborhood spot that was good but close (we were staying a few blocks away). Turned out to be a great place and wish I had one back home. Polenta and mushrooms were amazing. Highlight was the service. Waiter was professional, knowledgeable and hilarious. Made for a great end to a wonderful vacation and thanks to them for a great night out.

Qualitative Italian restaurant with delicious food. This place deserves a lot more customers! The service was very friendly, but a bit nervous. They interrupted our dining for every single thing (empty glass, questions, taking away menu's and dishes). Just relax! The food is great :)

Small menu of very correctly prepared dishes. Excellent cooking. Huge wine list with an owner who makes helpful but not extravagant suggestions. Much better than your typical London Italian restaurant if you want serious cooking.

The restaurant had such a lovely atmosphere and the food was deliscious. The waitress was super attentive to all of our needs, always making sure we had everything without us needing to ask. Great service. The owner was a maestro, we didn’t get the wine pairing experience but he was more than happy to provide us with a wine pairing that he picked specifically to go with our chosen meal courses. It was spot on! He also took the time to converse with us, share his vast knowledge of wine and make sure we had the best dining experience possible. Would highly recommend. Perfect food, perfect wine, perfect evening. Thank you!

The best thing about this restaurant is a wine list and the way it’s displayed - by Italian regions. The food was ok albeit not memorable . Would be great if focaccia would have arrived warm not just out of the fridge - particularly would be nice on a cold January evening. Tortellini with pumpkin and chestnut were OK but I wouldn’t say the best I have ever had. I personally would have served with some sort of sauce perhaps chestnut ? The atmosphere was somewhat somber for some reason - I can’t put my finger why , maybe the lighting. It’s funny but we were told to make sure to close the menus while we were dipping bread in the oil and it seemed like we were watched over at all times to ensure the menus don’t get stained -:)

It was our second visit and were not disappointed.
The food and wine were good, so maybe we could do with more appropriately sized wine glasses, especially for the red wine.

Warm friendly welcome. Good service, lovely food and very helpful staff. Our booking was relatively early at 5.30pm and therefore the restaurant was not busy. I booked on the reviews I had seen and was not let down in any way. I would recommend this restaurant .

I am pleased to have this new addition to the neighborhood! The outside is very unassuming and the decor is simple, but the food is delicious and elegantly presented. The staff is gracious and knowledgable. Don't forget to order dessert! I'm glad I saved room.

The service was excellent. The food we received was very tasty. Unfortunately they had run out of some of the dishes or ingredients by our 9pm sitting. I would go again for an earlier sitting and try out the other dishes. I would recommend that they have enough ingredients when taking a large and later booking.

Wasn’t sure it was a wise move driving further than necessary on a snowy evening to get to this restaurant but after a lovely meal I was delighted I did. The service was outstanding throughout, the food tasty, well presented and despite the location not overpriced,. I know this won’t be the last time I visit this excellent establishment again. Highly recommended.

I was very disappointed in the food - the staff were very nice and friendly but the food was trying to be trendy rather than Italian. The starters were quite good but the pasta was not "al dente" as it should be and their special of the day was some sort of tuna sashimi which I thought was very strange for an Italian restaurant so I will not be rushing back there
