Vasco and Piero opened the restaurant in 1971. Vasco and Piero created the restaurant out of a passion for good, uncomplicated Italian food. The making of fresh pasta on the premises has always been a priority. From the outset, the menu changed twice a day, a tradition which still continues.
Vasco was born in Umbria and as a result of this many foods are sourced direct from farmers in this region. Particular favourites are truffles, wild mushrooms, seasoned cheeses and cured meats such as lombetto and capocollo.
We only use the best quality extra virgin olive oil mainly from Umbria, Central Italy.
Many of our hams & salames such as Lombetto (a cured loin of pork) are imported from local Umbrian farms.
When in season, we import black & white truffles from hunters around the hills of Umbria.
Our balsamic vinegar is from Modena. We use Maldon sea salt with pure flaky crystals.

Private Dining

For parties over 12 people,we offer a 3 course menu for £25 plus optional 12.5% gratuity for parties in the private room.

Can’t remember the last time I’ve been to a restaurant with cover charge policy. £2 per person, what for actually? Add the 12.5% service charge, that was well over £25 in additional charges for 3 of us. Food is good & fresh, but nothing mind blowing. Overall, don’t regret going there but wouldn’t return.

Delicious food, well served in a quiet dining atmosphere, by good people. Many diners were long-standing customers. Plenty of fish and vegetables on the menu, along with more robust meat dishes. Excellent, we will be back.

Wonderful food and very friendly staff. Not the cheapest place you can eat but then you don’t get quality without paying a little for it.

I have not eaten here for a couple of years but was pleased the waiter still recognised me. Very nice food, nothing fancy but good Italian food. Menu varies often but there are a few favourites to be had. Decent wine list. They do not try to rush you to get the table freed for the next customer.

We booked the restaurant further to reading online reviews and are happy to say that we were not disappointed. The fact that the party was a table of 12 arriving at 5.30pm was not a problem to the very pleasant restaurant staff; they were most attentive and helpful espcially with the wine recommendations and no request was too much trouble even though the restaurant was full. The food was amazing and everyone enjoyed their meal (we had gluten free guests in the party); personally the salmon starter and swordfish linguine are highly recommended, the linguine was cooked just like it is in Italy, which I have struggled to find in any other Italian restaurant in the UK . Our only disappiontment was that we ran out of time as we had to be at Ronnie Scotts for 7.30pm and couldn't try the delicous looking desserts.

The food was not outstanding and over priced for what it was. The overall result was disappointing. The only attribute was the staff who were attentive and the place was quiet for having discussions at the table.

The meal was average but still expensive. The restaurant added a cover charge as well as a 12.5% suggested service charge. A billing error resulted in an error of £20 plus the service charge and n offer to reduce the bill was offered. I thought that was dreadful. It leaves one to think this might be accepted practice?

Have visited this restaurant on a few occasions and have always enjoyed it. We visited again in early January around 8pm in the evening, so expected it to be very quiet. It was quiet - so no surprises there, but once again food and service were excellent. Wine selections are good and the menu choices are excellent. Having been before when it was busy I can say this place is excellent whatever the circumstances.

We were very disappointed having found this restaurant for New Year's eve; the starter was nice but the main courses and puddings were poor. The helpings were very small, my husband had ordered pasta stuffed with mushroom, he had 6 fairly small flat pieces of pasta and this cost £23.00; after a 3 courses meal he actually came out hungry, we thought his must have been the half portion but we were charged for a full portion.
The staff were friendly but we had to ask 4 times to get our bill and at that stage it wasn't too busy although some of the tables obviously knew the owners. My sea bass was a little better and tasted nice.

Great food, nice and quiet location. Service was a little slow though at times - initially had to ask someone to come over after being seemingly ignored. Staff could have been a little more friendlier and personable too. Slightly different but very good tiramisu!! Really enjoyable evening though. Good wine.
