Before to order we've been ensured that the GF was as big as the normal one. We got a small pizza and also, the GF pizza was too crunchy (it seemed an overcooked biscuit more than a pizza). But we also ordered a calzone and was very very good. If you really want to go, DO NOT order GF stuff, you pay more for less.

Friendly owner and staff, many menu offerings. Ask them to hold the salt if you prefer less seasoned entrees. Nice wine selection, too. We'd go again!

Excellent range for gluten intolerance. 'Hidden' Charge for bread and olives but wasn't suprised. Staff really friendly. Food is pleasant enough but would probably only go again if with people with allergies.

Very nice atmosphere, a good old proper authentic Italian. Love the selection of gluten free dishes, a few more dairy free options would be great.

Decent food, nothing out of ordinary. Service was ok. When we declined wine, they ended up charging us for water. I would only go back if there wasn't any other option.

Nice authentic italian with good food at a fair price. Staff were friendly, good choice of wine if you are buying a bottle. Decor not stunning but nice enough.

Great atmosphere, full on a Tuesday night, good value for money and friendly service. Food was hot and fresh, prompt but not rushed service, fine for a midweek meal.

Nice little Italian in an area not spoilt for choice. Pizza way too heavy compared to "real" Italian. Staff lovely and friendly. Would recommend for non fussy simple meal.

Premium for gluten free. Full adult price for a 7 year old. They tried to talk a child out of her choice, queried why she was having a hot chocolate, they initially forgot one drink and got muddled with anor with waitress saying 'I don't speak English' £80+ for milk, 1 beer, 2 x diet cokes, 1 coffee, 1 hot choc, 1 starter, 3 mains and 2 desserts incg £6.50 for a slice of cheesecake that looked a small slice of a cheap shop frozen shop bought one. I asked for a straw for the milk and was directed to the toilet. Later told to leave table as they had anor booking, unwelcoming

A warm welcome and lovely food. Only grumble is the charge for bread and olives which were brought to the table anyway so we assumed complimentary...bit naughty!

I booked this based on reviews, for a meal for 10 before the London marathon. I was very disappointed. Service was very haphazard, nine of our meals were nearly finished before the 10th meal was served and the staff weren't bothered and did not apologise.

Visit was quite disappointing after all the good reviews on TripAdvisor. Risotto had chillis and pancake was over cooked and glued to the plate. Coffee was nice!

Essen war in Ordnung. Preise-Leistung unterm Strich zu teuer. Freundliche Bedienung. Lage gut. Restaurant sauber. Brot und Oliven kosten extra wird aber nicht gesagt. In Ordnung
