Food was delicious, served quickly but with ample time between courses that you didn't feel rushed. Nice ambience, and attentive staff. I would recommend to others.

Such gorgeous food. Hard to go wrong with Italian but this was something else.
Lamb ribs were cooked to perfection and the lobster ravioli was divine; the lobster was delicious. I was pretty hungry and so all had the prawn arancini (I’ll be ordering that again!)

Just a wonderful evening, great team, professional and yet warm.

I’ll be back

Food was delicious, service was great. It was very noisy in there but that can’t be helped! My friend had gluten free pasta and said it was the best she’d had, very fresh and is made in-house.

Initially the menu choice seemed very restrictive , however every course was excellent.
Plenty of space around the table.
We would definitely come here again.
The 'Rosemary potatoes' was a little strange, as these were basically just crisps. We would have liked a side that was more substantial, especially with the steaks.

Great food, really excellent and attentive service, good wine menu and relaxed atmosphere. I’d booked the dining room but got there early and sat in a booth in the bar. We asked to stay there and it was no problem at all. Can’t recommend the place highly enough.

Attentive and busy staff, eager to please. Kitchen is very good but the menu is somewhat restricted. Very good wines, but most are pricey. Ambience is lively, and yet the main room is noisy. Interesting private dining roon downstairs. Reasonable value for money (for Bishopsgate).

Lovely food and wine menu; not huge or overwhelming, but plenty of choice. The service was respectful, attentive and efficient. The lunch crowd was a bit noisy, but still atmospheric and we were able to communicate at our table with ease. The food was spectacular; full of flavour, well cooked and seasoned, well proportioned and beautifully presented.

We were late but that wasn't a problem. Lockdown has clearly ended as the place was packed. The chili sauce dripped on the padron peppers was hot (which was good, not bad). Two of us had the pasta carbonara and my colleague (French) said it was the best carbonara he had ever had - which is high praise. The guanciale obviously packed with flavour made the dish as did the black truffles. House Sicilian red was the best value on the list. Service was excellent and it was good to be back.

Upon arriving they were able to seat us 20 minutes early before our reservation of 19:30 which was nice. The restaurant runs very well and stayed calm. Our server was pretty attentive with our wine glasses and water. My major complaint was the pork was 50% fat and bone. While I love “off the” bone meat and small bits of crispy fat this portion was a bit sad.

Good quality food and the server was chatty BUT it got really crowded and the service became slow. This is an expensive restaurant and so we hoped for less noise and in particular a quasi hen-night of women sitting near us was not good

My wife and I ate here to celebrate a wedding anniversary. I simply cannot fault the service from everybody. We were very kindly given two complimentary glasses of Presseco as soon as we sat down, and the subsequent table service from everyone was attentive and extremely polite. We were given a great table in the corner as well.
The food...hmmm....we just felt it was trying a little too hard to be different. Italian food in our eyes is simple and effective. I had the Chicken Milanese which felt a little greasy, and my wife the pork chops, which again had a lot of fat on. The accompanying sauces were a little too rich as well. The starter of prawn arancini balls and the dessert of tiramisu were delicious though. Overall, a lovely evening.

The food at the restaurant was very nice I will say that. However, unfortunately the service let the restaurant down. We were not asked if we wanted to order drinks, felt very rushed as if it was a McDonalds trying to get people in and out as quick as possible.
