We are also happy to accommodate your special occasions and celebrations. We have two different areas that can be booked for private functions. Our back room can seat up to 40 people and the Bruschettaria, which has the feel of a private dining room, can seat up to 37.

We look forward to seeing you soon. Buon appetito!

Very quiet on a Sunday evening but we had an amazing meal here. The proprietor was very welcoming and the service was attentive but not overbearing. The pasta dishes we both had were outstanding, perfectly cooked and full of flavour. We will return if we are around these parts again.

We love this place - and are regulars. Staff all very friendly and the menu is also excellent and very reasonably priced. The green olives are also delicious and the wine selection very good.

This was our first visit to Pulcinella. What a wonderful experience! It was the first time our guests had been to Twickenham, either for a rugby match or the town. Their verdict was simply 'one of the best meals we have ever had'! We second that sentiment. We will definitely book a table early next year when we come for The Clash. Many thanks, Maria and the staff. Mike & Sally

Have tried many restaurants in Twickenham over the years for pre match lunch with family - this is my favourite for its great combination of good food and drink, great value and nice surroundings.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and our meal. The service was terrific and we felt as though we were really on the Continent. A warm, friendly place... too bad we're heading back to the States, or we'd be visiting again soon. Grazie!

Service was very good, didn't take very long for our food to arrive and the prices are competitive. A lot has changed on the menu since the last time I went there but the options are good so do check the menu before going.

When we arrived the place was busy and the waiters were rushed and we had to make an additional request to be served our drinks but once the crowds subsided we received good friendly service and the food was excellent.

I have been to Osteria many times before and always loved it. So perhaps I can write off my experience this saturday as a bad visit - although I wont be rushing back given that it has very strong competition on Church Street. Me, my pregnant wife and daughter arrived for an 'early mothers day' meal. We were put on a tiny table for 2 right by the window and a heather cranked up to full. I did ask if they had a larger table but apparently they didnt - a number of tables remained completely empty during our whole visit. The food as always was nice but they did forget sides we had ordered - in fairness they were then taken off the bill. when the sides finally arrived towards the end of the meal the waiter (who was also front of house) said actually you do need a bigger table - noting that despite us all resting our drinks on the window ledge - there was not enough room for the plates. we had nearly finished by this point so it was pointless to move and we just finished out meal and asked for the bill. The waiter seemed confused as to why we werent staying for my daughters free desert but the tabel was so unbearably warm that my daughter was now feeling ill. Food was good - service was awful. those little tables are for 2 people. it is unreasonable to put 3 on them. just refuse the booking and we will go to Masienello instead.

Food and service as ever were excellent. However, I would have expected something significantly different on ther menu to the normal a la carte for the price charged for the 'Rugby Lunch'.

Everything perfect except the table - a little squashed at the back near the kitchen. Other than that, a very enjoyable afternoon. Thank you.
