I visited a lot of Italian restaurants with my Italian boyfriend. This restaurant is my favourite! Not only among Italian restaurants but also including all the other restaurants which I tried in London for four years. The food is so amazing, the owner is kind, and price is reasonable. Every menu was so delicious and I have never failed in this place. The dinner in this restaurant always made me satisfied.

Excellent and efficient service, delicious freshly-prepared food. Great wine selection and a charming, authentic Italian style neighbourhood restaurant. Highly recommend, bookings advisable - it's small and popular!

We went to Saponara based on net reviews and the reviews were true - this was a memorable visit !

The Lobster Ravioli was superb, pasta just right and the filling firm and full of flavour

The Calzone again was the best in years - we could eat it all so a doggy bag was called for -

Don’t miss the tiramisu - it’s worth trying to fit it in

PS If your on a motorbike there’s loads of parking !!!

An equal measure of the food was the service. Vincenzo is such a nice guy, attentive, helpful and a real happy sole. Don’t forget to shout “complimenti” to the chef, he deserves it !

Overall a wonderful experience that will be repeated.

The pasta is amazing, pizza is good too. It’s a cosy relaxed place great for large family lunches or quiet dinner.
