Cafe
$$
“Authentic Italian food with the freshest ingredients. What sets this place apart is passion for freshness. Every week owner travels to London’s markets to source the freshest produce. They even have their very own in house gelateria serving fifteen authentic Italian style ice creams and sorbets (try mango, raspberry or watermelon - our favourite!) And if that wasn’t enough they make own fresh pasta, stuff own ravioli and make every drop of beautiful salsas from scratch. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner most days (check on the website for full opening times!). Normally possible to get in without booking, but booking is still recommended to guarantee your table. Lunch, coffee and ice cream - no booking needed.”
