Review

I cannot recommend this restaurant highly. It's food is average and like most Italian food in England does not relate to Italian food eaten in Italy. For the price of a few meals in London you could buy a very small palazzo in Napoli, where it is still possible to eat well for a pound. For the price of a meal in London you could fly to Italy on a discount ticket, for the price of a plane ticket to Australia you could feed a family of eight in Bangaladesh for months.

It doesn't bear thinking about, so stop being stingy and eat out. Anyway the best thing to eat here is the Tre Gusti pizza, which has goats cheese and pepperoni and mushrooms on it, and is quite tasty. The other stuff is just about ok but makes you a little depressed. Service is brisk but not unpleasant, desserts are suffer from too much gravity and too little flavour. Wine is alright. Bill for two about 40. Food should inspire not remind of us things past. Chefs of London imagine what it is like for us to eat your food, and attempt to make us smile. Shake off the shackles of the quotidian.
