The food was a sub par attempt at Roman food. I’m not sure if lockdown has anything to do with our experience but it wasn’t great.

A good solid trattoria, with prices to match the undoubtedly high Knightsbridge rent. Genuine Roman classics well done. Great wine list and superb service.

The outside seats before red roses (artificial) had good ambiance. The walking road facing them was silent. Foods were delicious! I have enjoyed lunch even under this restrictive situation.

Great food, very good service. The street is quiet and they have heaters which is appreciated as there is no direct sunlight on the terrace.
Will definitely book again.

We had a great time. Very good service, incredible food and ambiance. The only small comment I would make would be for them to install/setup better outdoor heaters.

Due to Covid restrictions, we could only sit outside and it was a cold day. So luckily the food was very good and we ate fast because it got cold really quickly. The positive side of the cold was that my glass of Prosecco stayed nice and cold. Service was very good and the place had a very authentic Italian feel.

We enjoyed the food so much! It's as amazing as Osteria Napoletana (in London as well)! The service was perfect, Carlos and the other 2 people (an Italian waiter and a Spanish waitress) from the staff were amazing! Thank you so much!

The main waiter was extremely rude and unfriendly. The pasta was completely cold and when we complained he tried to argue that it should be. When we asked for the bill he scoffed at us and rolled his eyes. Overall a very unpleasant experience. There are definitely much better Italian alternatives for the same price in the area.

Very nice place to visit that feels quite unique which is a compliment for London. Food was fantastic and the wine was good too, if a little over priced. Would definitely recommend and will be returning if I find myself in Knightsbridge again.
