We were placed on a table for 2 right next to the open door , which was not ideal. We asked for a side salad and were told there was no salad at all. This was strange as Waitrose was still open and someone could have gone and bought salad ingredients! My friend and I ordered the ravioli which was very rich and buttery and difficult to eat without a salad to lessen the richness of it. My friend couldn’t eat it at all. Fiinally, my friend asked for ice cream for pudding and was told there was no ice cream. The whole evening was very disappointing and I was embarrassed as my friend had come from Ascot and I had booked the restaurant. I live in Teddington and don’t often eat out in Twickenham. I would not choose to eat at the restaurant again,

The server, whose name escapes me, was attentive and helpful. Issues : no pizza served at night. The icebox was broken. The pasta was undercooked and the sauce was subpar. Nevertheless, we'd try the restaurant again given the quality of the people that ran the restaurant that night.

Obviously a busy day with the Rolling Stones concert on at the stadium but, having eaten here 3/4 times previously, it was a shame the staff were somewhat overrun by the demand on the day. Despite the delay and difficulty in gaining the service which would have made for a better experience the food was, as ever, excellent. So not so much a complaint, more a disappointment that the experience for my guests wasn't quite to the standard I'd lead them to believe we'd enjoy from a restaurant I've come to enjoy a lot on the previous occasions I've dined with you.

Good Italian food in a nice setting, the service is attentive but there could be more choice for vegetarians/vegans.

Brilliant.....again! Their motto “Nothing is too much trouble for our guests” was definitely met everyone in our group (4 young lads and 4 dads enjoying a casual lunch) met all the way through. My third time and I'll be back soon for the fourth.

We had a great time at Osteria Pulcinella and service was fun, attentive and efficient. First courses were special and amazing so had high expectations for the mains. These were sadly bland and disappointing. Would like to see the consistent great quality cooking of previous years.

We have eaten here and enjoyed it but the staff were incredibly rude on arrival. There were five us and we had booked and they asked which table we wanted to sit at. We chose one and then they brought the menus. When another group arrived the told us we were on the wrong table and we had to move. The other group then sat at a completely different table. Some of the staff argued with each other. We will not return.
