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.

Really lovely atmospheric place. I had mentioned it was my sisters birthday celebration and we were surprised with a free glass of fizz. Lovely friendly attentive staff, food was delicious and great decor. Would highly recommend this place for a romantic meal or friends/ family get together.

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.

Great buzzing restaurant. Excellent wine list of Italian wines, and a great menu. The arancini, and ceviche starters will brilliant and the pasta main did bit disappoint.

My favourite restaurant that I wouldn’t go back to. Never be sure but strong sense that the new manager and his staff has killed this once fabulous restaurant. With the exception of the lady who greeted us (charming) waiting staff walked around busy with their own importance but completely unobservant of customer. A dropped napkin picked up but never replaced until asked for; unsmiling staff; wrong drinks served after asked for three times (is martini that difficult?) and a restaurant that was 2/3rds empty of a Saturday night. When complained to manager he just blamed his staff… but frankly not convinced he’s not the real problem. Food still great but I’d never go back to my once favourite restaurant in town who just seemed to get everything right and justified the price. There’s now much better options nearby.

The food was nice but expensive. Unfortunately there was hardly anyone in the restaurant (and it was a Saturday evening) so there wasn't much atmosphere.

We came here for a birthday lunch but didn’t realised it was only serving brunch on Saturday. We were slightly disappointed as we were looking forward to order from the A La Carte menu. However, when the food came, all our disappointment disappeared! The food was very delicious and service was amazing especially the front of house. We even tried to go back for dinner but the kitchen doesn’t open till 6pm and we wanted an early dinner. However, we will definitely be going back! Thanks for a lovely brunch :)
