It was the first time we ordered some starters with our friends in this restaurant. They were absolutely gorgeous, every single one of them. You usually always have a dodgy one, but not here.OUTSTANDING!
The pizzas are one of the best ones I’ve had in London in a long time. Definitely recommended!

Very disappointing. Lasagne was served lukewarm and had to be sent back. Gnocchi served with mediocre passata and cheese was scarcely a dish - bland and slimy. Service was fine, the waitress did her best, but that was no compensation for the awful food. Next time we will go to Santorini around the corner.

Nice Italian, very handy for Sadler’s wells. Food portions are generous and staff were very attentive. Great outdoor seating options for enjoying the sun. Would recommend.

Good food - worrying service.

As someone who has been cautious throughout the pandemic, I found the covid safety measurers to be very worrying at this restaurant.

Firstly, I was not asked to sign into track & trace.

Secondly, all the staff have masks around their neck but never once wore them over their face / mouth.

Finally, diners are not spaced out. A family was placed right next to me and I had to tell the staff that I was not happy with this distancing. They did assist us to move to a new table where we wouldn't share it with another group but we were made to feel like an inconvenience.

I have eaten at this restaurant a few times - the food is really delicious but I wish I had known the covid safety approach before I went.

After seeing raving reviews about the food and restaurant, we were quite disappointed with the quality of service. Food was okay but not somewhere I’d go back to.

Unfortunately I was quite disappointed both by the service and the food. We were ignored for a good 20 minutes after we were seated (they didn’t even give us menus). The bruschetta and wine were nice but nothing spectacular. The mains, though, were both flat, lacking proper seasoning and just unimpressive, especially for the price.

This place is brillant, the wait staff are fantastic very attentive and pro active, it started raining and they happily came out and lowered the shelter in the booth area we sat at.

Foodwise we ordered pizza , however I wanted some extra toppings and they were happy to make the adjustment for me. The pizza itself was perfectly cooked with a nice crispy bottom and soft top for the bread, the sauce to cheese ratio was balanced and enough toppings to not have it falling all over the place if you choose to eat with your hands.

The beverages they have on hand was a great selection of IPA, Largers and ale, sadly when I went there a few were out of stock, but can't be helped.

Overall a very good experience and some of the best pizza i've had outside of Naples/ Italy. I would highly recommend the visit.

Also pro tip, ask the wait staff what to order if you are not sure, which is what I did and i was very happy with their suggestions.

I came here when it had recently opened at is was good but they've obviously worked hard to improve the overall dining experience. The food was excellent and the staff were courteous and efficient especially operating in the current circumstances. I had the nduja pizza which was excellent. My wife had the sea bass with the fennel salad.

A great place for good value quality dining in a relaxed atmosphere. Look forward to coming back

I love these guys. I used to dine at their Marylebone branch so I knew what I was getting. This new place is far more comfortable and spacious, and the staff are helpful and within arms reach. Highly recommended!!!

Waiters need to know more about the menu, as I asked what Italian ice cream was and the answer I got was....... vanilla, chocolate and strawberry flavour, what's Italian about that.
Pizza's and startes were excellent. I'll definitely go again.

While the staff are lively and friendly, what marks this restaurant out is that they actually cook Italian food properly - so the Carbonara doesn't come with cream, but is cooked in the proper Roman style. This is rare in London and merits a full five stars!
