I'd been meaning to try here for years after hearing lots of good things about it. Wish I'd been sooner. I'm already looking forward to working my way through the menu. We had garlic mushrooms and goats cheese to start (best mushrooms I've had!). For...More

I had pasta all' amatriciana which arrived fast and was utterly delicious and amazingly cheap. You can bring your own wine for free. Service is very pleasant.

I've travelled all over the world, including Italy, and I can say, hand on heart this is the best Italian I've been to. Yes there are more expensive places that use truffle oil and have plusher interiors, but if you are not pretentious and like...More
