Visited this restaurant at the week ends or the first time. Love Italian food and this lived up to our expectations. Excellent food, lovely rose wine and a beautifully presented cassata dessert. Will definitely be back when I'm next in London.

I went here recently for a birthday dinner. The atmosphere was welcoming. Staff are attentive and very knowledgable about the menu. The food was lovely and very good value for money.

This has got to be the worst restaurant in Palmers Green, poor service they are more concerned at cramming everyone in than offering a good service. We paid £17 for a lamb cutlet dish and we were presented with 3 tiny cutlets and 2 potatoes, when we pointed this tiny portion out the waiter came back with 1 extra potato. my poor boyfriend was still hungry when he finished ( and he's not a large guy ) so when we complained and pointed this out the owner suggested a pasta dish which we thought was an apology on behalf of the restaurant...but noooo.... he charged us for this too and was not embarrassed at all.

We should have known better as we were disappointed here before as have all of my brothers and their families and a group of my girlfriends but hoped it had improved in time but alas no. If you have any restaurant standards at all I would steer clear of this greedy, totally average Italian and go to Pizza express where at least the customer comes first or if you want an excellent meal with a warm friendly high standard of service pop round to Valentino's on Aldermans hill!

I have been going to this restaurant since 1997, its brilliant, food, service, value etc. The new restaurant has a very bright and vibrant atmosphere. I love this place and would eat here every day.

They are happy to accommodate large parties & service is great.

Decent food. Good service. Reasonable prices. Bustling atmosphere. Very good 'local' restaurant.

A number of friends with small kids and my family visited Rimini and had an average time. I used to visit the older Rimini further along the road which was always more rustic and you could see the pizza being made at the front in the window. The new place doesn't have that rustic feel and although they are fairly child friendly they fall short on many fronts. They don't have a childrens menu and when you ask it's almost impossible to understand the waiters. I knew they didn't but thought they may have added one due to the bigger restaurant. They have no kids drawing sheets again..thought they'd move with the times and finally there were very few smiles on the staff we came across which makes the experience feel sour...these are 3 things that Pizza Express down the road excels at and you just get a better environment for kids.

The food....well this really isn't as good as it used to be. The standards have slipped and rather than being wholesome food it's lacking taste. The pizza is dry and seems to be lacking sauce so you feel your simply eating bread and the chicken dish I had lacked taste and the chicken was a little tough. Infact everyone in our group required various sauces to add taste to the food. Drinks are also very limited and when asked about drinks we wanted we simply got a no with no asistance on other options.

There is no dessert menu either and service is extremely slow. We ordered the kids food first hoping it would arrive before our starters...and found our starters arrived first. Which meant the kids had to wait feeling hungry. There appears to be a lack of professionalism in the staff, and if they carry on this place will dive just like the numerous restaurants that have been in the same place before.

In the meantime I'll be going elsewhere.
