Atmosphere, staff and people are great, no complaints. The food is really poorly made. Pasta was really terrible, and the pizza was really amateurish. For the same price range, anything is better.

We stumbled over this quaint little Italian restaurant and decided to eat here. The restaurant is small, maybe 12 tables, but outside dining was available. We got a table straight away, there was four of us in total. Got the feeling it was a family...More

Owing to its proximity to Smithfield Market – the site
of an ancient meat market which remains in operation
today – Clerkenwell boasts a plethora of globally
renowned restaurants, fabulous local eateries, and
some of London's favorite pubs. This isn't merely a
focal point for all things foodie though. Spend enough
time wondering through the area's maze of streets and
you might become accustomed to the litany of slinky
