Italian

It’s the shape that strikes you first, a series of tall alcoves in the basement of historic Leadenhall Market in the City of London. Yet it’s anything but dark. Smooth white walls, matching table linen and spotlighting create a bright, private space well-suited to confidential high-powered lunches. The menu’s Italian, a skillful combination of simple modern Italian and traditional regional recipes, to be precise. Specials change every few days, but the pasta is always homemade. Excellent fish dishes. Diverse wine list, in both price and character. Professional service.

The staff were great and it made for a lovely later afternoon lunch. It was busy as expected so noise from conversations is quite high but this also creates a real buzz. I would highly recommend.

The low score reflects the wasted journey and disappointment of not being able to eat here despite an apparently confirmed reservation rather than the quality of the food. I attempted to contact open table and the restaurant but after repeatedly putting a message on the OpenTable need help section, I was no further forward and ended up getting a takeaway.

When my wife and I arrived it was quiet and no busy which was surprising cos it was valentines. Also the staff members have a great sense of humour. We had a good laugh. The food was delicious and the presentation was excellent. Will definitely go back there soon. Loved it and thanks so much Team Giorgio.

Had to wait 20 minutes for our booked table for 2 and were eventually squeezed in (another table had to stand up so we could get Io our corner). Time for bigger premises ?

The burrata appetizer is my all-time favourite! Everything else on the menu is pretty good, but you should give the daily special "presented" as you walk by, a try.

Nice and quiet on a Friday evening when everyone else has left the City - I suspect it does a busy lunch trade! Will certainly be returning.
