Another excellent enjoyable evening in our favourite local restaurant. The staff looked after us well and as ever were very friendly. We enjoyed some dishes from the new seasons menu. The the pairing of figs with the burrata quite inspired and the manzo main course was excellent. The special chocolate souffle was fantastic and deserves to be promoted to the main desert menu !

This is my favourite Italian restaurant. Despite the big rugby match they were able to accommodate my 12 person booking. Every single person LOVED their food and the service was impeccable as usual.i can't sing their praises high enough. I will ne back soon. Thank you so much for making my birthday super special

Had a wonderful meal at Osteria Pulcinella! The new winter menu was very enticing. For starters we had the Sformatino di Ricotta (Ricotta flan, crispy Pancetta & saffron cream sauce) which was subtle and beautifully flaky, and the Polipetti Pulcinella (sauteed baby octopus, capers & black olives in rich tomato sauce) which was wonderfully flavoured. The octopus was beautifully cooked, soft and tender. For Primi, we had the Fettuccine, which was a delicious freshly made chestnut flour pasta in a very autumnal, earthy sauce of wild mushrooms. And we were delighted that the amazing Risotto Verde we had previously experienced at last month’s Supper Club has made it to the menu. Simply wonderful, packed with delicious flavour and again with perfectly cooked baby octopus! The Vegetarian option (without the octopus) must be just as good. For Secondi we went for the hearty options - Porchetta (pork belly) and Spezzatino (beef stew). Both were succulent and tender, served with comfortingly rich sauces. Perfect hearty dishes to combat the onset of winter! Everything was complemented with a good Chianti and finished off with cheese and desert wine. Yum! Can’t wait to go again.

The new menu is very attractive and varied. We particularly liked the range of new vegetarian options, while old favourites (fegato, seabass...) are still there! We tried the pasta with clams and the tortelloni, which were both excellent. Our favourite restaurant by a long chalk!

First time visit before a Harlequins game. Excellent bistro type restaurant with tasty food, very pleasant accompanying wine, smiling service and a buzz around the place. Shame the rugby was rubbish but will certainly aim to book again when next in Twickenham.

Another excellent lunch at Osteria Pulcinella. Good food, warm and attentive service and a seat in the window - what's not to like! Thank you.

With the new menu, we started with the Bruschetta which is a great improvement on the previous one, and the Burrata which was nice, but too much cheese for us but maybe not others. The figs were lovely, so more of those to complement the cheese and some bread would be a nice accompaniment. For main courses, we had the beef stew which had lots of tender beef and was extremely tasty. The other main we had was the Pappardelle pasta with duck ragu which was also extremely tasty. No comment on desserts as we're waiting for the new menu next week. Judith & Eric

Attractive restaurant, with relaxed atmosphere, in picturesque road. Food and drink were enjoyable, though I’d suggest increasing the vegetarian & vegan main course options. White wine choice was also limited because my first choice had apparently not yet been chilled (for a lunchtime sitting). Service was friendly but informal, with one of the waiting staff conducting an ongoing conversation at volume above our heads with other staff while attending at our table. Nevertheless a pleasant time was had - and the cheesecake was great!
