Service was excellent - pleasant and informal. Food was very good. Hard to rate the ambience great as we were outside on a cold night on the pavement - but that's hardly the restaurant's fault! It was just nice to be having a restaurant meal after months of lockdown. Even if we did still have to comply with restrictions. As far as they could go, though, the restaurant did a great job - thanks!

The food is so nice! It’s proper Italian and tastes fresh! We were served by Nicol, she was very welcoming, friendly and seemed to know a lot about the wines and the dishes. It was really nice learning more about the food and Italian culture from her, really took the experience that extra mile. Most of what we ordered was based off of her recommendations and all of it was absolutely delicious! I highly recommend Enotecca Rabezzana for anyone looking for a romantic evening to a friendly catch-up. The whole vibe works so well for this.

Solid local restaurant.
Our server was very knowledgeable, particularly with regards to the wine list. This helped a lot and he recommended a great wine from Sicily to pair with our meal.
Portions were generous and my partner and I both enjoyed the food. It was good value too.
Only minor criticism would be that the menu was quite limited. I assume as trade is still slow at the moment. Food was of good quality however so if you find something you like then you’re in luck.

Fabulous wine, delicious food and great service. The menu is limited but everything on it is made perfectly. The fried courgette flowers were superb. Next time I will go with someone who also loves wine-- it was heartbreaking only to order by the glass!

Wonderful Italian restaurant with a simple but delicious menu. We have eaten here several times now and have never been disappointed by the excellent quality of the food or the friendliness of the service. There's also an interesting and delicious Italian wine list and the staff which the staff are more than happy to guide you round. One of the best restaurants in Farringdon and my personal favourite. Highly recommended.

High quality food yet low key- and wine, always asking for recommendation from the knowledgeable staff - are amazing and never disappoint. So glad they sailed through this difficult time. We will be back again for sure.

Great food, I can highly recommend the Cacio & Pepe truffle pasta. The restaurant was empty when we went so I can't comment on the general atmosphere but it's a nice decor and the service was fabulous too.

The fodd and wine was really good, however having booked the table two weeks prior for 2pm, I was called on the day to be told that we had to vacate by 3pm as they'd booked the whole place out the day before. Not good enough quite frankly. This was a christmas celebration not a quick bite on the run.

An enjoyable lunch at Enoteca Rabezzana. It was quite empty when we arrived but soon filled up and the service was prompt and helpful. Food was maybe a little slower arriving than we might have hoped, especially as it was a business group and so we weren't hitting the vino, but was excellent when it arrived. We all enjoyed our mains very much, especially the paccheri with wild board ragu and the tonnarelli with red mullet, lime butter and pistachio pesto which I thought outstanding. We tried all three desserts - I'd have to say that the truffle and salted caramel was a bit of a surprise as the truffle was a little stronger than we expected in a dessert (naively I was expecting chocolate truffle !), but we enjoyed the others very much. Overall, great food at good value - we will be back.

I chose badly from the menu. That was my ignorance. Service was indifferent, maybe bordering on absent. I struggle to recommend it and am unlikely to be returning.
