Now here is a good question....

Does anybody know of a really decent Italian restaurant in London? I dont want any of the corporate stuff (Bella Pasta or, even though pretty good, Carluccios etc) or mega Expensive stuff (Locanda Locatelli for example) but really want to find a nice little family run trattoria with checkered table cloths and empty bottles of Chianti holding candles etc

    I like Caffe Caldesi in Marylebone, Trattoria Semplice in Mayfair and Bocca di Lupa in Soho. They aren't mega expensive, but may go up to ~£30 or so.

      Italian Graffiti on Wardour St is probably my favourite of this type of restaurant.
