OUR PHILOSOPHY

‘O ver comes from the Neapolitan dialect to mean: “Truth”

We do our best to reflect this with the authentic, delicious and healthy food we freshly prepare every day.

A Real Italian menu with a strong Neapolitan soul.

‘O ver uses the unique ingredient of Pure Sea Water, which is extracted from the purest areas of the Mediterranean.

Less sodium and more minerals makes the food lighter and easy to digest.

Pizzas, breads and all the seafood dishes are made with Pure Sea Water.

We directly buy our ingredients from small independent Italian producers and we only use the best local suppliers.

We only serve Authentic Neapolitan Wood fired pizza, pasta from Gragnano, fresh fish & British meats.

Every single dish is handmade with love and patience by our chefs, in full respect of the tradition.

Simple recipes, only the best ingredients and a lot of Passion, less is more.

    A lovely place for lunch with pleasant outside seating in a courtyard area. Good veggie options. Great service - we asked to defer ordering the main course until after we had the starters, but as the kitchen was due to close we were asked to place the order before 3pm. The waiter came to us after we finished our starters to check if we still wanted to have the main course which was great as we were full by then.

    Our experience was exceptional. The food was delicious and the service was excellent in general but the staff also went above and beyond. I’m pregnant and suddenly felt very faint at one point - they helped me to a table outside, brought me a drink and a cold pack for my head, a cushion to make me more comfortable. They were very caring and it was really appreciated.

    Visited for weekend lunch. Warm welcome by staff who were very attentive and professional throughout. Great recommendations on food - shared neopolitan street food selection to start, followed by pasta dishes. Everything was delicious and beautifully presented. Desserts were OK but quite rich. Food was great value but wine pretty pricy. All round lovely experience, will definitely go back. We'll worth a visit.

    Loved it and would definitely go back again. Nice to go to a Neapolitan restaurant which offers more than just pizza. We had the Neapolitan street food selection, pasta with seafood, a Baba and Pistachio Delizia. All were amazing. The maitre d was very professional and helpful. The waitresses also were very good.

    First time here and it was surprisingly lovely. Booked for a quick pre-theatre meal as it’s a stones throw from the Harold Pinter venue. Very attentive but friendly host who recommended a great red wine to accompany our pasta dish. The restaurant itself is tucked away from the main road and that probably adds to its appeal, albeit it may also mean that not many people know of it. Will return should I have a theatre show nearby to attend.

    Service was very good with friendly and efficient team and really enjoyed the Neapolitan street food selection starters. We had mains of pasta and pizza which were very tasty and most enjoyable. The only downside was an over-priced wine list which seemed unjustified and be prepared for them to add a service charge of 15% which feels toppy in these post-Covid times.

    Excellent service and nice ambience. The food was very good and well presented. Just a caveat for what is concerning the pizza, which we are a bit meticulous for. The crust was a bit too big and the cheese and topping should be more evenly distributed.

    We had a lovely Valentine’s dinner. We honestly walked in not knowing that a lot of it was Seaweed based, but given the surprise we thought we’d try something special and so we went pretty crazy with the seaweed based bread, dough etc. it was, to our pleasant surprise, super enjoyable and on top of that we got lovely service and a relaxed atmosphere - especially with how small it is, it’s got so much charm! Definitely recommend booking for holidays etc as when it’s packed (as it was with us) it’s really just got a lovely ambience. Would love to visit again although it’s intentionally fancy and therefore a bit expensive, so not your average meal price-wise.
