    We loved our dinner, our waiter chose delicious wines for us and the food was lovely. If I had to say anything it was that the tiny table at the back was really too small for 4 persons and we felt very hemmed in - also it was extremely noisy at time with plates and cutlery being unnecessarily bashed about - but overall I’d say it was a 7/10 experience and we will come again

    Whilst the food was good on the other hand service was basically absent. We have been served filtered water at £4.50 without being made aware as we thought it was tap water. After we wanted to get more details regarding the menu and the waiter was apparently not so aware of what was on the menu. Hard to get attention despite the fact there were lot of staff.

    Cosy place, nice staf and service. But food seriously disaponted, the socalled bruscetta is old bread. Not italian bruscetta. The pasta we got served was hard and tasted really bad. All in all food way overpriced for what you get. Having been in italy and having high hopes for this italian after the reveiws this was a big disapointment.

    An amazing authentic restaurant - it was my daughters birthday and they brought her a tiramisu on the house / lights down singing happy birthday - great place for a special occasion but well worth the money - thanks to Mario a great host.

    Generalmente un bel locale, romantico, riservato, peccato per il cibo che è tutt altro che romano, sono romana e amo le osterie al centro, quelle vere, questa è una classica “sfottò” per turisti a Londra, niente di particolare, ho sperato nella cacio e pepe presentata benissimo ma era insipida come l’amarezza del mio umore dopo averla assaggiata. In ogni caso prezzi esageratissimi.

    I do not write reviews but I must now! Do NOT go to this restaurant!! We have never had a worse experience. The food had a strange taste, pasta w/ tomato & basil had 1 leaf of basil. My hubby had the spaghetti w/ meat sauce . Again, awful!! Insalata Mista is supposed to come already tossed with dressing! Wasn’t expecting a Michelin-star restaurant but this was not up to par. I make better Italian dishes at home! It was like the plan is to turn as many tables as fast as possible and charge a lot for just plain pasta minus any flavor. We couldn’t wait to get out of there!! Don’t believe the hype!! I’m never going with an Open Table review ever again!!

    The food at this place is really good. In particular the gnocchi Tartufo is wonderful, same with the tiramisu. Wine was served at a perfect temperature. Really enjoyed it and the waiter was lovely too. My reservation was the small size of the table to eat on, which sounds silly but it really was a bit cramped. If you go as a table of 4 or more you’ll be absolutely fine as those tables are big enough. If you don’t care about such things and just want lovely food - then ignore this!!

    We popped into London for dinner. It was a last minute decision and we booked the table from the train. I added “birthday” in the box that asked if this was for a special occasion, but didn’t think more about it as it was a last minute booking. But the restaurant surprised us all (especially my son) with a birthday tiramisu complete with candle. I’m vegetarian with egg and dairy allergies and the menu didn’t have anything on it that suited, but the waitresses extremely helpful and made suggestions and alterations to dishes that suited my dietary requirements. A very friendly, relaxed atmosphere with lovely food and wine.

    Hello. It's a lovely quiet spot and unusual for Knightsbridge in that the customers are not the standard Knightsbridge tourists. The food was good but the service was not attentive at all. The prices were very high, especially when you consider that our waiter didn't speak English, didn't know which sparkling wine we were ordering, and splashed the wine on the table. None of this matters in isolation but coupled with high prices and feeling somewhat overlooked it wasn't a great experience. I think the sparkling water may have been £9 per bottle. I chose this spot because it seemed better value than my usual and much loved Harry's Dolce Vita but the bill was £100 more than the £160 I though it would be, for 2 people.

    What a delightful little gem. Tucked away down an ally, this was a highlight of my vacay to London. The ambiance was warm and inviting. The service was friendly, knowledgeable and with good humor. And the food - divine. From beautiful and delish super fresh salads to light and savory well seasoned pasta, to delicately puffy, crusty pizzas there wasn’t an item we ordered that we didn’t absolutely love. We can’t wait to go back!
