About Osteria Pulcinella

Established in 1994, Osteria Pulcinella has built a reputation for serving authentic regional Italian cuisine complemented by an exceptional selection of fine wine. Our restaurant has a rustic feel with a warm and comfortable atmosphere. The service is friendly, professional and welcoming. See what our customers have to say about us here.

Our motto is simple: “Nothing is too much trouble for our guests.”

We offer a full breakfast menu from 9:30am including expertly made coffees and wonderful homemade cakes. From midday, our lunch can cater to parties looking for a leisurely, relaxing meal as well as those that need to dine & dash. Our dinner service begins at 6pm and is a fine affair, offering unique and authentic dishes from different regions across Italy.

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!

Thoroughly enjoyed our food. Great service. However the portions for some of the main meals were a bit small. I think listing prices on your menu on the website would benefit customers so they can see these before they visit. I feel it may put people off visiting otherwise.

We had a large, NHS team Christmas party on Friday, always a bit difficult to organize and keep track of things, but the Osteria staff handled our chaos (and dietary requests) with grace, humour, and smiles -- it felt more like a big, sprawling family dinner than a formal sit-down. Our food was consistently excellent, with 25 people receiving coursed meals that were prepared fresh and with obvious care. The wine list has some great, affordable options and the Maitre d' was helpful with suggestions without applying pressure or trying to upsell. A lovely, positive, and delicious experience all around, and I would heartily recommend Osteria Pulcinella for any occasion. Thanks so much, and we'll be back for our next team lunch!

The service at this restaurant is excellent. The atmosphere created was just what we wanted after an afternoon at Twickenham stadium. I would recommend this restaurant and it's sister restaurants on the Isle of Wight.

Never fails to deliver. The team there do a fantastic job, especially on match days when it's pack. Service is prompt without being intrusive, food is home cooked to excellent standards and plentiful in portion sizes. Consistently good value for money, excellent service and food means on match day, I would not eat anywhere else.

A lovely lunch for 4 of us. Easy and relaxed, with friendly, efficient but unobtrusive service and great food. Please just fix the light in the Ladies loo.

Due to some last minute cancellations I turned up for a pre-rugby match lunch with my 3 and 6 year old grandchildren. The staff were brilliant; made them welcome, talked to them and treated them as proper customers. Will definitely return,

Recognising that not everyone wants to be sat for lunch for 150 minutes as part of their match day experience and then remembering to acknowledge the person that made the request rather than leaning over to speak to a completely different member of the group.

Absolutely awful experience! The chickpea starter was bland, tasteless and tepid. The wine we ordered was corked, the second bottle was ok but that was the only bottle they had. The first 2 mains arrived an hour later, both were luke warm. Mine didn’t arrive until 15 mins later by which time 2 of my party had finished. The other guests meal didn’t arrive for a further 15 mins so we all basically ate separately. The cheese plate was tragic. They didn’t charge for our mains but we were still left with a bill for £180. The staff avoided coming to our table and said they were too busy to give us an explanation! This was my sisters birthday which the restaurant successfully ruined. I eat at the restaurant twice a month but will not be returning.
