We had a lovely date night here. Good selection of drinks and being gluten free they were very accommodating to my dietary requirements. The slow cooked pork was devine. I felt this was a very safe spot to eat and they were very covid safe. Plenty of space between tables, disposable menus, sanitizer readily available and check in required. Highly recommended!

If you love Pizzas this is the place for you. I would recommend you try the Gamberi with Beppe's home grown Zucchini paste sauce prawns and speckles of chilli. Does have a little bite to it but amazing. Can't be faulted. Will certainly look forward to our next visit. Great for occasions too.

Service was terrible, we had to ask our waitress several times for simple things like water etc and part of our entree was missing. She was vague and it was frustrating. Food was amazing but not sure if I would go back because of the service

Rustic ambiance sat in the courtyard under twinkling lights. Menu was more pizza and pasta than anything else but food was good. Service was quick and very mindful of COVIDSafe

This is one of my favorite Italian Restaurants for Dinner. The Pizza and Pasta are amazing and would highly recommend heading out to Camden to try this establishment. The ambiance is relaxing and its a great place to share a meal with family or friends. I would also recommend having dinner outside, especially if the weather is accommodating.

Unhappy with temperature check at the door, didn’t appreciate being told that we HAD to use hand sanitiser upon entry and server made a fuss when I said I was allergic to the sanitiser and couldn’t use it.
Food was okay but quite pricey, won’t be back.

The main disappointing time of the night was the refusal of serving my partner and myself desserts because the hour and a half seating limit had exceeded. However, this was not our fault considering the food took an hour and 15 minutes to come to our table which is not really fair considering it wasn’t my fault. It was my birthday and I specifically went there for their dessert board I rave out all the time. Very upset considering it was my birthday

Great food, excellent service, we’d never been there before, we like to try a different place every weekend... , I think now this will be a place we’ll more than likely make our regular and favourite.
From the time the staff met us at the door to the time we left, nothing was ever a problem, the food was great, the decor was lovely, we had an enjoyable experience.

Food was fantastic. I’ve been served by the waiter with the red hair twice now. I thought the first time was perhaps an off day. However, both times she wasn’t overly friendly. Was quite abrupt and short. The food was great though and is why I return! A retrain in customer service might be needed. She was great in terms of efficiency but seemed to have a lot of tables to herself which might’ve been the issue. The blond woman who gave us our bill was lovely.

Hi,
We dine here often and left disappointed on Sunday.
We specifically arranged a group of friends to have a meal and eat Bistecca.
On arrival we were advised there was no Bistecca or Suckling Pig left.
Had we of known we would have pre-ordered the Bistecca if possible.
Our only option left was to order items off the menu that we have had prior.

Regards.

Will 100000% be dining there again soon.

Bit unclear of the check in process, there was no signage to wait to be seated and no one there when we arrived, we checked in, sanitised and headed in and were quickly told to move back to the entrance which we did and then told to shuffle back further even though there was now more people queuing up, social distancing?
Everything else was a dream, our waiter was awesome. Drinks and food was great!
