The finest Italian restaurant I have ever been to, with a varied and fresh menu that caters for everyone from meat eaters to vegans and all in between without seeming to try!

It may not look particularly salubrious, but it is child-friendly by day and romantically candle-lit by night. I cannot recommend it highly enough!

"Denmark Hill resident, Sir Henry Bessemer invented the first anti-sea sickness ship. This was done by hanging a large weight under the main hall where passengers gathered so it stayed upright as the ship rolled. Sadly, once at sea, the ship proved impossible to steer and crashed into a pier at Calais."
