I recently set up my new business just around the corner from this divine little Italian restaurant and I cannot believe my luck! Whether it's for a sublime cappuccino and slice of devilishly naughty homemade cake, for a relaxed and wholesome lunch or a candlelit meal with friends, this is the real deal: authentic, freshly prepared, Italian home cooking in the warm and friendly atmosphere created by the lovely owners and staff. It's a little slice of Rome in the vibrant heart of Crouch Hill - and a real hidden gem. I (and various friends and family) have tried their homemade pasta, risotto, lasagna, soup, melanzane parmigiana, cake and tiramisu and I defy anyone to find a better version of any of those dishes anywhere in London! (Which probably explains why so many of their customers are native Italian). I've paid 4 times more in celebrated West End Italian restaurants, and not eaten so well. So, transport yourself to the heart of Rome, just at the start of Crouch Hill. Highly recommended!
