We had a lovely lunch .The atmosphere was pleasant with friendly staff with whom I practised my Italian when I was waiting for my guests!.I would recommend Sapori for the food,location and congeniality.
It is slightly away from the bustle of the main square and provided a peaceful,but popular place to eat.I was able to chat happily with relatives whom I had not seen for a good while.I would certainly return.

This restaurant is located next to the market at Covent Garden. It's not much to look at but the food and service are really good.

Good option for a quick bite after the Lion King Show. Very convenient to the theater, Covent garden, and tube. Food was tasty and portions were large - good value!

A very poor dining experience. reasonably friendly staff, but poor food. Undercooked pizza dough and reheated gluey pasta. The water for the table never arrived and the salad never arrived. Also there seems they might have a sewerage problem, a definite stench at the back of the restaurant. A real shame as I like to support independent restaurants but I definitely won't be going back and neither will my friends. This quality of food is inexcusable in London these days.

A little corner of Italy in Covent Garden. There was something on the menu for everyone, and the pizza got a gold star from my expert companion! Service was so friendly, and the wine was excellent! Will definitely go back.

Chicken was cold when served. Took ages to get any staff attention. Had to ask to see dessert menu and they didn’t have the tiramisu or cheesecake.

Staff weren’t very helpful, in fact the male who greeted us on arrival and took us to our table was was quite rude. We had booked a table inside and ended up been sat outside and it was cold. Garlic bread for starter was delicious, pasta with Napoli sauce for main was nice but pasta was under cooked.

Seated by the (out of order) bathroom and mostly ignored through the meal. The food was not nearly what prior reviews set my expectations for. I thought my pasta carbonara was mediocre at best and I didn’t appreciate that they automatically applied a tip to the bill even though I was dining alone (not exceeding any group limit or anything). Generally I would not recommend and I’m sure in Covent Garden there are many other better options.

Prima is a place where pasta is made in-house everyday and the food overall is excellent, with great flavour and right portion sizes. The staff is very friendly and really takes care to make your experience one to remember and to repeat!

I was afraid this would be a hole in the wall but front entrance was deceiving. The back room was a nice atmosphere. I would definitely recommend the wild boar ravioli-it was delicious, home made pasta was the best I’ve had in awhile. Pizza was fairly good. Service was a little slow although they were very busy. Price was very reasonable.

The restaurant is so cozy and the staff are really helpful and quick. At first I was a bit frustrated cause we were on a bit of a schedule to watch a film after our dinner, and the food was taking longer than what I expected, but that’s because I’m used to restaurants using stock pasta or dough to quickly serve you your food. But no, they made fresh pasta, so soft and delicious and full of flavour. We got here on a whim of me craving Four Cheese pasta, and let me tell you, I’ve had this dish in multiple countries , including Italy, and it’s never been so good. 100% recommend to make their gnocchi four cheese the top of your list. We were happy with all the food, you can clearly see they put love, time and effort into making every dish the best. The pricing is similar to other Italian chains, but the quality is far superior. We would definitely love to come back and try more of their food, the pizza the lady next to us was having looked and smelled divine.

We came here for a comfort food, pick-me-up, date night and it was absolutely perfect. Comfortable and casual atmosphere and amazing pasta. Get the boar ravioli, you won't regret it.
