Very friendly and efficient staff. Really excellent food from very high quality ingredients. Menu short, classic and interesting and food came quickly. Decor needs improving but I am sure it will when the new owners have time. Good and interesting wine list.

My partner and I were excited to try this restaurant after reading some great reviews, but sadly our own experience didn’t match that of others. While we appreciated the organic produce, the portions were incredibly small for the prices sold at with very little seasoning. The great wine however was very good. The host was personable and sweet, but seemed overwhelmed with the amount of tables he solely had to serve and didn’t seem to be half as interested in us as we were paying. The decor was very basic- although this may seem critical, again it did not reflect the price of dining. Organic and fresh the food maybe, but this restaurant is extremely overpriced for what it is. London is full of great restaurants packing a tastier punch than this place. Disappointing.

We have been waiting a long time for a restaurant like Differenza. Welcome to the neighbourhood! Simple, fresh, imaginative, delicious, unpretentious italian food. And the Wine selection is superb. Bravo!

The sign of a brilliant restaurant is when you ask for something that’s not on the menu and the chef looks totally unflustered and seems delighted to accept the challenge. That happened tonight when one of our party asked for gnocchi with a Gorgonzola sauce. It was delicious. Everything was perfect. The sea bass and avocado tartare and artichoke lasagne were particular highlights. Lovely atmosphere, music and wine too. A really fabulous addition to Primrose Hill.

We were introduced to this restaurant by our oldest friend whose local this is. Lucky lucky Jean. If we lived round the corner we would eat here every week. Charming proprietor who knows how to source the best seasonal ingredients for a small selection of perfectly produced dishes. His enthusiasm is infectious. We loved it.
