Though most are shopping for diamonds while in London’s Hatton Garden, Fabrizio’s may be brightest gem in the area. This intimate, family-run restaurant is refreshingly unpretentious, with café-style wooden chairs and tables and paintings of Mediterranean food to whet the appetite for the huge Italian flavours on offer. The genial chef/host Fabrizio is always at hand with suggestions from either the a la carte or outstanding seasonal specials menu. Regular favourites include warm chicken livers with wild mushrooms and fried polenta, homemade spaghetti with baby clams, chilli and cherry tomato sauce and seared beef tagliata with balsamic reduction and rocket. Prices rarely go over the £13 mark, making it a diamond for both gullet and pocket.

You have to try this...more

This small Italian eatery came recommended by a friends flatmate, and first impressions were good. A warm cozy interior, a friendly owner who walked us through the days specials. But this is where it stopped...
We initially chose a table near the back of the restaurant, but the owner then suggested we move closer to the window (a clever marketing trick). We obliged, and the waitress took our...more
Took a client here for lunch recently after seeing the positive reviews and I was very impressed. Big Dave loves Italian restaraunts with a family run feel, none of this Carluccio's rubbish for the big man. No sir.
Top quality food, big portions too, and a very nice wine list. Had a lovely bottle of red with my meal and couldn't believe my eyes when I saw the bill - I thought he'd forgotten...more
