Michelin review:“A refreshingly unpretentious and keenly run Italian restaurant that exudes warmth and bonhomie. Homemade focaccia and pasta are the highlights. Look out too for seasonal offerings such as the black truffle menu.”

Marco, with his hospitable Italian nature, makes his guests always feel welcome and takes personal care of them.

Head-Chef Paolo Cavagnis is from Bergamo, a historical town in Lombardy in the foothills of the Italian Alps, where he trained as chef for 5 years and subsequently obtained a Professional Diploma at the Professional State Institute of Hotel & Restaurant Services. He also attended a specialisation course in Alimentary Technology at the same institution.

Gathering extensive experience in renowned hotels and restaurants in Bergamo, Baveno at the Lake Maggiore and on the island of Elba, Paolo came to London in 2006.
