    First to Review

    This place is pretty good, but a quick search in Soho and I'm sure you'll find better.

    The food here is pretty good. The pizza's are decent, but not worth writing home about.

    The place is very authentic. All the staff are Italian and the place is like being in Italy. Unfortunately this brings with it crap service, exceptionally loud noise level and lots of shouting. Don't get me wrong, I love this usually (when in Italy) but only when the food matches the feel.

    If you're in Soho and you fancy some decent food and a snippet of being in Italy then give this palce a try. However don't expect too much and you'll easily get a better deal if you search a little harder.

    Visited this place some time ago on a jaunt in the UK.
    There was a line to be seated here, so I figured that the place had something to recommend it. I would say that it probably isn't worth a long wait. The food was just OK. The pizzas are very thin and surprisingly bland. I also had an appetizer salad, which arrived after the main course and was nothing special. Service overall, not that great, but they were very busy, so I'll give them the benefit of the doubt. While I was there, one of the owners approached me and he was very friendly and seemed to appreciate my business. Perhaps I'll give it another go next time I'm in the UK just to see if maybe I was there on an off night?

    This place is a slight run down, but very old-school Soho Italian eatery.  It's cheap, the staff are pleasant and you can lunch here for less than £10.  The menu is sensibly short and within reason, they'll make you anything that can be assembled from ingredients on the menu.  Their bruschetta is nothing to write home about, their aglio olio pepperoncino is OK.  It feels a lot more "real" than many modern Italian places and their non-pizza/pasta menu is broad enough without being overwhelming.

    A classic Italian conveniently located near Tott Crt Road. `All the waiters are, well, Italian, and so are ridiculously friendly/flirty, but it's all good fun. The food is very cheap and having tried both the pizza and the pasta now I think I can safely say that it's all good quality. It's not the most amazing Italian meal you'll ever have, but it's perfect for grabbing a quick bite to eat after work, or before going to the theatre.

    I really like this restaurant, the waiters are a bit noisy but that's fine as they're Italian and I expect it.  I'd prefer them to be that way.  although one guy did crack on to my sister a bit hardcore. she was happy but i felt it a teeny bit innapropriate.  she could have been my girlfriend as far as he knew.

    I've always been really happy with the food especially the pumpkin ravioli.  I'm not a big Pizza fan so i can't really comment.  

    Their tiramisu was great.  and it's great value.

    The food in here is authentic enough and acceptable but I don't think the service is as great as some reviewers made it. We were served by a waitress once and she seemed to hate her job (which wouldn't be a problem if she didn't show it). We were seated in the corner and my seat was right next to the kitchen door. I had to give way a few times to the chefs who were trying to open the door. We ordered desserts and the waitress simply cut two slices of them from the fridge, without any extras (like cream or icing sugar) and just gave us like that. When we left she didn't even smile. For the price we paid I think we deserved more then just food.
