I'm a Trustee here & I am proud
to be associated with such good
work that comes from this place
Absolutely fantastic! Great value for money, great food and great wine! The staff were attentive and very helpful as we were tourists in the area.
I had a spinach and ricotta canelloni and it was one of the best i've ever tasted! The environment was cosy too.
I thoroughly recommend this to anyone!
This is one of the cutest Italian retaurants in London, really ramshackle and homely with even a resident cat that wanders around and gently gets shoo'ed out!
Excellent value food and drink - you can get a delicious calzone for just under £4.00. That's the regular size, which fills you up a treat. They also sell Strega, a very unique Italian liquer (Strega - Italian for witch) which is a love it/hate it licquer. If you aren't brave enough to try it solo, then have it drizzled over ice-cream - delicious.
I really can't rate this restaurant high enough - it's charming, friendly, family-run and just so homely it makes you want to squeeze it tight! Two of you can eat there for well under £30, including a decent bottle of white wine - a real bargain for exceptional quality, tasty pizza and other TRUE Italian dishes.
I went to a photographic exhibition here a couple of weeks ago as part of the London Festival of Architecture. They put on their own Festival of People's Architecture with information about the history of the area and the struggle against the developers.
I went on a free guided walk around Fitzrovia with a local author. It was fascinating. Everyone enjoyed it and we all went for a drink at one of the local pubs afterwards.
The Neighbourhood Centre is a real melting pot of people coming together to keep the community feel that Fitzrovia is famous for.
And it's a lovely building too. It's Grade II listed and has a real homely feel about it.
Also can't say enough about how good this place is - just to say that besides the ultra-cheap (and delicious!) pizza there is a excellent range of Italian meat dishes for between £8-10. A place to take friends and parents.
Simply outstanding. I am privileged to be a member. I am here pretty much once/ week and sometimes more. The food is phenomenal, and the atmosphere second to none. 'Staff' would be too impersonal for the owner and his family, who treat you like part of the family. I hardly ever leave a 5 star review because it's places like this that blow everything else out of the water! I have lived in many towns in all kinds of countries and no restaurant has ever even touched this level of tastiness, service, and all-round yumminess!
This is a really lovely Italian restaurant - relaxed, down-to-earth, good food. A word of warning though - it is not a 'restaurant' anymore, it's a 'private dining club'. You will be asked when you go in if you are a member and I am not sure that non-members are supposed to eat there. Membership is £10 a year - I joined as I definitely intend to go back.
