This bright and welcoming Italian restaurant opened in February 2013 on the site of the former Clapton Park Tavern on Chatsworth Road. It serves Italian pasta and pizza classics, with daily specials and the usual desserts. There are outside tables for al fresco dining during the summer months. The inside decor is cheerful with an open plan kitchen, big windows and friendly staff.
Bec and a friend visited in August 2013. Service was very good, despite being very busy, especially for a weeknight. Ravioli agli spinaci (£8.80) was fresh and perfectly sauced with a generous portion of rocket. The Capricciosa pizza (£8.85) (tomato, mozzarella, olives, mushrooms, artichokes and capers) was also generously sized, probably on par with a Pizza Express.
Bec's verdict: Would definitely return to try the Pizza Chatsworth (tomato, mozzarella, goat cheese, asparagus, rocket and gorgonzola).
