This restaurant is excellent. An authentic traditional family owned Italian restaurant which has been here for many years. Service very good and food from a fantastic menu and substantial specials board was quite simply fantastic. Will make a point of returning next time I'm in...More

Saw the mixed reviews and obviously people either like or hate the owner or head waiter or whatever he is. Suppose it's a bit 'in your face' ....or you can lighten up and laugh. Food was really great and the service was also very friendly...More

Small restaurant with fine Italian cuisine, nice ambiance, attentive service. The tables are far enough apart that it is possible to have an intimate conversation. Good wine list with reasonable prices.

The head waiter seemed more interested in chatting to his pals .... disappointing food from an interesting menu. Good cold rose wine and the pals who had a pasta dish said it was OK. Not cheap - but hey ho you're in the Kings Road

I would suggest that you change the 'I' to an 'A' in my heading! I was warned about the owner before my visit and checked all the TripAdvisor bad reviews to get ready and prepared. So I went expecting the worst but was really surprised...More

Wealth courses through The King's Road, Chelsea's
upmarket artery of West London life packed with shops,
eateries and glitzy nightspots. For people-watching at
its best and luxury retail therapy that's largely
unrivalled, this area cannot be missed. But if this
showy street starts to overwhelm or a moment of price
tag shock sends you reeling, a quick detour down
pretty much any of many King's Road veins will reveal
