This is a fantastic, local restaurant serving real food, beautifully cooked, imaginatively and lovingly put together. Fantastic, friendly staff. the only trouble is, it has ruined us for all other places. If there is a place this good in Penge, South London, why can't all places be this good?

We went on Valentine's day evening with our son. We didn't have any reservation but they were kind enough to allocate us a table on a very busy evening. The food was amazing. My 3 year old loved his mushroom pasta. Great food and efficient staff. Will return again.

Went to Friends of Flavours on Valentines evening with my wife. Very good meal and wine. Great atmosphere in the Restaurant. Good to see the same staff there - that shows loyality. One waitress remembered me from their previous location - several years ago. If you like Italian food I recommend this restaurant.

This place is such a lovely restaurant. The food is great, with lots of options. The Spanish and ricotta ravioli with butter and sage is amazing! Lovely people, great service and excellent wine.
