Little Bay (Kilburn)

To look at the reviews on this website you would get the impression that by going to Little Bay, you're in store for a night of gastronomic delight.

If anybody thinks that is the case after going there, then I pity them!

The prices are spot on. The ambience is great. I would go back with a large party - but dont kid yourself about the quality of the food - it is not fine dining or gastronomy - All you are getting is value for money and i would personally have preferred to spend a little bit more and had a slightly better than "mediocre" meal.

Cantina Italia

My wife and I needed to find a place to eat near upper street as we were going to see a band in a local pub on a Thursday - I found Cantina Italia on this website and booked it. It took me a while to get through - perhaps they arent open during the day.

The things i wanted from the meal was that it should be affordable, authentic good food and be able to have a quick meal in a friendly atmosphere. It ticked all the boxes.

The decor is modern and staff friendly. The menu has a varied selection of the usuals but the thing which stood out for me was that it was an absolutely superb meal. I had for starters baked aubergine with mozzerrella and a tomato and garlic sauce - for mains an authentic Italian pizza.

My wife had similar. The price didnt break the wallet and the food was authentic.

Would recommend
