  • Phil said: "Didn't End Up Eating
    The staff didn't seem interested in us being there. 10 minutes after sitting down, they gave us a menu. 15 minutes later they came to ask us what we wanted. Then, after I tried to order, they informed us that half of the quite limited menu wasn't available. Terrible service, a wasted half hour. We left without ordering. Hence the 3 stars for food. Might have been the best food in the world, no idea. "

    If you are looking for authentic Italian food, you might just have found the place. Less than 10 minutes walk from London Waterloo.

    This is a very traditional South italian Restaurant. One of very few "old school" restaurants. Don't expect to come in and go out in 30 minutes. Good food takes time, and to appriciate the food also needs time. I think we were in there for almost 2 hours, and that was just for 2 cources.

    If you enjoy good authentic Italian food (No pretence), a great atmosphere, and willing to take your time, talk with your table, laugh, joke, and debate then you are in the right place.

    Portion sizes where good, we all ate different things, yet every dish took us back to our holidays in Italy. What a treat.... "

    I don't usually write reviews, but the rudeness of the man who owns this restaurant gave me the need to inform you all of our experience at this restaurant.

    Came here on out lunch break and was greeted very nicely by a gentleman who appeared to be running the joint.

    Sat down - took 10mins to take our food order, at the end of the food order he started to walk off and I said can we also order drinks (as we were all pretty thirsty), he said he would come back in a minute.
    He came back 10minutes later to take our drinks order...so we had been in the restaurant for 20mins before even a drinks order was taken and the restaurant wasn't even busy.

    The food was okay, really pretty average - nothing to shout about but also nothing to complain about.

    However, when the bill came he added £5.50 service charge, I have no problem playing service charge, but when the service is particularly bad I won't pay it out of principle.

    When I asked him to take it off he huffed and puffed, threw our cards at us and told us next time he would wear roller skates. I simple said, I'm sorry but waiting 20mins for a drink order is not good service, he followed me out the door and tried to argue with me telling me I was wrong.

    If he just said 'look guys I'm sorry the drink order took so long I apologise' there would be no harm done, but to get defensive and annoyed that we didn't pay the extra £5 is just ridiculous customer service. "

    Came here on Saturday for a friend's birthday. Not impressed at all by the way the establishment was run. We were handed a starter of bread and olive oil without really being asked and no mention of price which was quite sneaky and ended up being about a fiver added on the bill even after taste card discount! The mains we had of pizza and ravioli were nice and would have been a bargain if it were not for the ridiculously overcharged drinks and service charge added to the end if the bill for service which was very slow and unexceptional. We had to wait ages to order and then ages to wait for food to arrive even though restaurant was pretty much empty. However, the most ridiculous part of the night was the price of the drinks. There were three of us in total who ended up paying £15.20 for 4 cans of sparkling lemonade which the owner tried to be sneaky about and get us to pay £ 3.80 for each can! There was no drinks menu therefore the owner can get away with charging whatever amount he wants for drinks so if you want to visit make sure you ask for prices upfront. For that money we could have probably got a bottle of wine to share but we did not know and the owner kept changing the prices of the drinks which was unimpressive. For all 3, We ended up paying 40 just for a main and a can of lemonade and a bit of bread! I will definitely not be visiting again. "

    " I had booked to go to the resturant on the 15th March with my family (who love pizza). I was allowed to book for 6pm (1800 hours) even thought they opened at this time.

    You would have though that if you are open, you should be ready to serve and cook what is on your menu. When we got there we were told that the pizza oven was not turned on and it would be an hour and a half before they could make and serve pizza. The chef complained that I should not have been allowed to have booked for 6pm. Howeverm they were clearly open

    We left. Don't go there. The good news is that you can use your taste card everyday. "

    We are new to tastecard and wanted somewhere between Morley College and East Dulwich to eat after an evening class. We've passed this restaurant on the bus so many times but don't think of this as an area to eat in. I’ve been missing out and will certainly be back.

    As other reviews have said the restaurant was a bit quiet but if you are looking for simple Italian in a relaxed atmosphere at reasonable price then you must come here. OK it's not Michelin star food but the portions are good -we only managed half the vegetables with the main course, even if it was full their tables are not crammed in and the service was very friendly. You can even practice your Italian if you wish.

    The first main course my husband chose had sold out as they only buy a certain number of portions as its made fresh (it was after 9 when we arrived and we'd rather they sell out than offer frozen alternatives). The porchetta was lovely and moist, though if you are not keen on garlic you might find it a bit overpowering. Main courses were tasty and there was more than enough food if not stunning. The house red was smooth and at under £20 a head with the tastecard you win. I can't believe it wasn't busier as even without tastecard the prices are good, especially for pasta or pizza.

    If you are looking for Italian near the Elephant I'd highly recommend Dolce Vita. "

    " We were 4 friends on a Saturday night. The restaurant was empty. When we were browsing the menu the owner came and told us there were no pizza (in an Italian restaurant!!), no lasagne and that we had just few dishes to choose from. We had one main dish each (just pasta, nothing special) and one starter to share among the 4 of us, a bottle of wine, one small bottle of water and two desserts. As Tarek said in the other review, the waiter served bread and olive oil and vegetables we did not ask for, which was added to the bill.

    The 50% offer was "indeed" deducted from the bill but we still finished paying 77 pounds, and we feel we were cheated because we cannot understand how we ended up paying 20 pounds each after the discount when we had a 10-13 pound main course each and the bottle of wine was just 15 pounds.

    On the top of that, the food was nothing special.

    We will never come back again and I would not recommend the restaurant. I also felt the owner just wanted to get money out of us. It is not the best way to run a business. Give customer things they did not ask for and then make them pay for it and add extras to the bill.

    I regret I did not read Tarek's review before going, hope it is helpful for others. "

  • Tarek said: "Greedy...
    I was initially quite excited. I booked the table beforehand for the Friday evening mentioning my tastecard and that was "no problem". The atmosphere was OK (although the music could have been a bit louder as the place is a bit echo-y). My father and I sit down and are immediately served bread and olive oil. We then browse the menu and we both go for the entrecôte. The menu does not mention any vegetables or potatoes going with it so I enquire and am told that these are extra - although that is not on the menu. I later on also ask for a glass of water on top of the three glasses of wine we had ordered. Upon receiving the bill, I see that the 2for1 offer for the main course was indeed deducted from the bill. However, we had also been charged £2 for the starter, £3 for the water, an additional £4 each was added to the main course for the shared plate of vegetables and potatoes (nothing special with these) as well as a £7 service charge. The total was £48 for the two of us, 2 courses plus a starter we hadn't asked for. I didn't want to start an argument about this as we had technically consumed everything that was on the bill, even though none of these "extras" were on the menu. I was under the impression that our waiter was also the restaurant owner which would explain why he would want to get as much money out of us as possible. A £48 dinner for two can be acceptable in some circumstances, but considering the location, the atmosphere, the fact that the entrecôte was nothing special, and more crucially the fact that we had a 2for1 offer, £48 is very steep. I will not go here again. "

  • "I'm from California and this is my first use of my tastecard. I spend quite a bit of time in Italy, so I'm pretty picky about Italian food. This restaurant is to die for!! The sauces are authentic, the house wine simply marvellous and even the bread you get with a spicy olive oil dipping sauce is gourmet. The menu offers everything one could wish for (even for vegetarians too!) and Tony was so lovely. This is hands down the only Italian restaurant I'll be dining at in London. I live locally, but if you are North of the river, I urge you to travel and find out what all the fuss is about. Melanie "

  • Phil said: "Didn't End Up Eating
    The staff didn't seem interested in us being there. 10 minutes after sitting down, they gave us a menu. 15 minutes later they came to ask us what we wanted. Then, after I tried to order, they informed us that half of the quite limited menu wasn't available. Terrible service, a wasted half hour. We left without ordering. Hence the 3 stars for food. Might have been the best food in the world, no idea. "

    The food was great, the service was nice and the atmosphere very cozy. The only thing is that he included the tip in the bill, even if it said on the menu that the tip is not included is at our discretionary. Not no too happy with it, a very bad end, especially that we liked the service "

  • Ian said: "Welcome back to Italy
    If you are looking for authentic Italian food, you might just have found the place. Less than 10 minutes walk from London Waterloo.

    This is a very traditional South italian Restaurant. One of very few "old school" restaurants. Don't expect to come in and go out in 30 minutes. Good food takes time, and to appriciate the food also needs time. I think we were in there for almost 2 hours, and that was just for 2 cources.

    If you enjoy good authentic Italian food (No pretence), a great atmosphere, and willing to take your time, talk with your table, laugh, joke, and debate then you are in the right place.

    Portion sizes where good, we all ate different things, yet every dish took us back to our holidays in Italy. What a treat.... "

    We went for my father's birthday. We were greeted by the restaurant owner who then proceeded to be the most attentive host throughout the night. He was so lovely & the food. Well, the food was so good I had to ask for a 'doggy bag' as I was not about to leave morsel behind!! We were treated as regulars & I would even go as far to say, like old friends. I would highly recommend for any occasion, I cannot think of a single bad word to say!! "

  • Sof said: "RUDE!!
    I don't usually write reviews, but the rudeness of the man who owns this restaurant gave me the need to inform you all of our experience at this restaurant.

    Came here on out lunch break and was greeted very nicely by a gentleman who appeared to be running the joint.

    Sat down - took 10mins to take our food order, at the end of the food order he started to walk off and I said can we also order drinks (as we were all pretty thirsty), he said he would come back in a minute.
    He came back 10minutes later to take our drinks order...so we had been in the restaurant for 20mins before even a drinks order was taken and the restaurant wasn't even busy.

    The food was okay, really pretty average - nothing to shout about but also nothing to complain about.

    However, when the bill came he added £5.50 service charge, I have no problem playing service charge, but when the service is particularly bad I won't pay it out of principle.

    When I asked him to take it off he huffed and puffed, threw our cards at us and told us next time he would wear roller skates. I simple said, I'm sorry but waiting 20mins for a drink order is not good service, he followed me out the door and tried to argue with me telling me I was wrong.

    If he just said 'look guys I'm sorry the drink order took so long I apologise' there would be no harm done, but to get defensive and annoyed that we didn't pay the extra £5 is just ridiculous customer service. "

    Came here on Saturday for a friend's birthday. Not impressed at all by the way the establishment was run. We were handed a starter of bread and olive oil without really being asked and no mention of price which was quite sneaky and ended up being about a fiver added on the bill even after taste card discount! The mains we had of pizza and ravioli were nice and would have been a bargain if it were not for the ridiculously overcharged drinks and service charge added to the end if the bill for service which was very slow and unexceptional. We had to wait ages to order and then ages to wait for food to arrive even though restaurant was pretty much empty. However, the most ridiculous part of the night was the price of the drinks. There were three of us in total who ended up paying £15.20 for 4 cans of sparkling lemonade which the owner tried to be sneaky about and get us to pay £ 3.80 for each can! There was no drinks menu therefore the owner can get away with charging whatever amount he wants for drinks so if you want to visit make sure you ask for prices upfront. For that money we could have probably got a bottle of wine to share but we did not know and the owner kept changing the prices of the drinks which was unimpressive. For all 3, We ended up paying 40 just for a main and a can of lemonade and a bit of bread! I will definitely not be visiting again. "

    " I had booked to go to the resturant on the 15th March with my family (who love pizza). I was allowed to book for 6pm (1800 hours) even thought they opened at this time.

    You would have though that if you are open, you should be ready to serve and cook what is on your menu. When we got there we were told that the pizza oven was not turned on and it would be an hour and a half before they could make and serve pizza. The chef complained that I should not have been allowed to have booked for 6pm. Howeverm they were clearly open

    We left. Don't go there. The good news is that you can use your taste card everyday. "

    We are new to tastecard and wanted somewhere between Morley College and East Dulwich to eat after an evening class. We've passed this restaurant on the bus so many times but don't think of this as an area to eat in. I’ve been missing out and will certainly be back.

    As other reviews have said the restaurant was a bit quiet but if you are looking for simple Italian in a relaxed atmosphere at reasonable price then you must come here. OK it's not Michelin star food but the portions are good -we only managed half the vegetables with the main course, even if it was full their tables are not crammed in and the service was very friendly. You can even practice your Italian if you wish.

    The first main course my husband chose had sold out as they only buy a certain number of portions as its made fresh (it was after 9 when we arrived and we'd rather they sell out than offer frozen alternatives). The porchetta was lovely and moist, though if you are not keen on garlic you might find it a bit overpowering. Main courses were tasty and there was more than enough food if not stunning. The house red was smooth and at under £20 a head with the tastecard you win. I can't believe it wasn't busier as even without tastecard the prices are good, especially for pasta or pizza.

    If you are looking for Italian near the Elephant I'd highly recommend Dolce Vita. "

    On the top of that, the food was nothing special.

    We will never come back again and I would not recommend the restaurant. I also felt the owner just wanted to get money out of us. It is not the best way to run a business. Give customer things they did not ask for and then make them pay for it and add extras to the bill.

    I regret I did not read Tarek's review before going, hope it is helpful for others. "

    I was initially quite excited. I booked the table beforehand for the Friday evening mentioning my tastecard and that was "no problem". The atmosphere was OK (although the music could have been a bit louder as the place is a bit echo-y). My father and I sit down and are immediately served bread and olive oil. We then browse the menu and we both go for the entrecôte. The menu does not mention any vegetables or potatoes going with it so I enquire and am told that these are extra - although that is not on the menu. I later on also ask for a glass of water on top of the three glasses of wine we had ordered. Upon receiving the bill, I see that the 2for1 offer for the main course was indeed deducted from the bill. However, we had also been charged £2 for the starter, £3 for the water, an additional £4 each was added to the main course for the shared plate of vegetables and potatoes (nothing special with these) as well as a £7 service charge. The total was £48 for the two of us, 2 courses plus a starter we hadn't asked for. I didn't want to start an argument about this as we had technically consumed everything that was on the bill, even though none of these "extras" were on the menu. I was under the impression that our waiter was also the restaurant owner which would explain why he would want to get as much money out of us as possible. A £48 dinner for two can be acceptable in some circumstances, but considering the location, the atmosphere, the fact that the entrecôte was nothing special, and more crucially the fact that we had a 2for1 offer, £48 is very steep. I will not go here again. "

  • "I'm from California and this is my first use of my tastecard. I spend quite a bit of time in Italy, so I'm pretty picky about Italian food. This restaurant is to die for!! The sauces are authentic, the house wine simply marvellous and even the bread you get with a spicy olive oil dipping sauce is gourmet. The menu offers everything one could wish for (even for vegetarians too!) and Tony was so lovely. This is hands down the only Italian restaurant I'll be dining at in London. I live locally, but if you are North of the river, I urge you to travel and find out what all the fuss is about. Melanie "
