Italian
Italian Restaurant The Italian Restaurant has a modern but elegant feel, complete with an imposing wood-fired oven, suede wall panelling, handmade Moroccan tiles, mirrors in solid oak frames and chandeliers with candles. Complex, state-of-the-art lighting systems can change the atmosphere from sunrise to sunset, from season to season. It offers regional Italian fare with a contemporary twist. Created by Marco Torri, the menu comprises a superb assortment of antipasti, Tartare di Salmone o Tonno and Carpaccio di Manzo among them, followed by a selection of homemade pasta. Fish dishes are of the calibre of Branzino Arrosto con Caponata (Roasted Wild Sea Bass Fillet served with Sweet & Sour Sicilian Vegetables), whilst meat includes Piccione al Forno con Cavolo Nero (Oven-roasted Pigeon with Sautéed Cavolo Nero).

I usually love visiting Novikov, but this time the staff were rude unhelpful and just wanted to get us in and out. We were at the table for under 60 mins

Very poor customer service. The staff were curt and rude throughout. We had a discrepancy on the final bill and were forced to pay it because they thought we were lying. I have never experienced such poor service in an (Expensive/overrated) restaurant like this in London.

The service in the Asian section is flawless.
On this occasion at the Italian, we felt very rushed. We would’ve not finished with our food yet and it would be whisked away.
The lobster linguini was 95% lobster and a few strands of linguini.
The veal was so bland and cold.
The wagyu was delicious but the portion sizes have shrunk and everything felt like it was off a kids menu.
Really disappointed.

Fine dining! lovely delicious food in a light and airy setting. I was very impressed with the service every waiter that served us kept the same standard and treated us well.

Quite pricey but the food, service and atmosphere was worth it.

this has been my favorite restaurant for years and I have never been treated the way I was treated on Saturday. I don't know if its current restriction has made the server under pressure however, the service was quite unsettling.

Had the fixed lunch with two friends. We were impressed by ambience and the service. The wine recommendation was particularly good.

The greek sald starters were mixed. One had ripe tomatoes as expected the other had watery and tasteless tomatoes.

The roast chicken and potatoes were good but the chicken was not corn fed or organic. You would expect similar quality in many London restaurants.

The pasta dish was as expected but nothing special.

Overall the food was nothing special but the ambience good but not spectacular. The restaurant is good for large groups. We intend to try the Asian restaurant.

I took my best friend for her 24th birthday and it was amazing! The waiters and other service staff were absolutely amazing and so friendly and helpful. The food was delicious and I had a great time. It was just a shame that the curfew is 10pm but obviously that can’t be helped. Considering the circumstances it was a great night out.
