Highly recommended! The food was very good and they had a great selection of wines. I especially recommend the red mullet with pistachio pasta - it was the must of the night!

Wasn’t too sure when entering with the paper menus on all the place settings, and fairly loud music playing. But soon reassured by friendly and attentive service. Things got better with the arrival of the wine - 3 different glasses between the 4 of us from the specials on the board - all good. Better still with the arrival of the food - excellent Italian sourced cheeses and meats to start, then very good mains, meat fish and veggie. A very good place to spend a Saturday evening.

We were a little rushed as the restaurant was closing early, but nonetheless we did not actually feel the staff rushed us, and the food more than made up for it. Every dish we had was perfectly cooked and flavoured and we would love to come back again and again.

As the word "Enoteca" suggests, this place is more of a wine bar that happens to serve food, as opposed to a restaurant. However, the food they serve is pretty good - authentic Italian fare, slightly tweaked with a modern touch. When I went there with my friend they seemed to be somewhat short-staffed and the serivce wasn't particularly good, but the food was good. If you are a wine drinker, you might like the diverse range of wines they serve but if you are not a wine drinker prepare to be disappointed with the drinks list.

Had to catch the waiter’s attention repeatedly, we had theatre tickets so couldn’t wait around. Music was a mis-match. Half empty. No ambience. Limited menu.

Food and drink were good quality. It can particulary recommended the seabass which was lovely. Staff were very attentive and friendly. Just make sure you get a table away from the drafty windows. Will definitely be returning, perhaps when the weather is warmer though

Our first time at the restaurant for a pre-show dinner. The managers and staff were very welcoming and friendly. They were very helpful at finding a delightful sparkling red Pozzoferrato, and serving a main course venison - which was excellent. Definitely recommended.

We enjoyed a nice meal from the small but well-chosen menu at Enoteca Rabezzana. Although there seemed to be plenty of staff around, the workload was unbalanced so we had a few longer than ideal pauses and ended up in a bit of a rush to get away. The food was pretty good and there's an interesting selection of wine. Service delivery/organisation needs to sharpen up to help the helpful and friendly staff serve their customers better.

Absolutely stunning. I bought 15 of my colleagues here for a team birthday lunch and the not only was the food incredible, but the service second to none. They were incredibly accomodating and attentive, food was served quickly and the wine list extensive. We will absolutely be back - couldn't be more pleased!

Fantastic restaurant!
Staff were great, very friendly and helpful, answered all questions we had regarding the menu. The food was amazing, the grilled octopus was the best octopus dish any of us had ever eaten, we were sharing starters but I would definitely suggest you have one to yourself because you won't want to share!
Our new favorite restaurant in London!

Really great wine list and authentic food with great ingredients. Young and dynamic staff who care about the wine and food amd have a real passion for their cuisine, so a good place to go to really understand and enjoy Italian food. Wine list is excellent with some wines that are rare and unusual or difficult to find outside Italy. Price is good too - wine starts at £25 a bottle for very good ‘house’ options and some excellent wines by the glass enable you to try a few in one sitting. Definitely a local gem for anyone passionate about wine.
