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).

Would have liked abit more personal space between tables as the restaurant was quiet and all other guests were whispering to converse with each other. So we reduced from the full menu and ate elsewhere. X

We were seated 45 minutes after our reservation. We were told to just stand on the side somewhere which was uncomfortable with so many people passing by. We were not offered any drinks until we got to our table. The food was well priced but not very tasty. Will stick to the Asian restaurant next time.

Disappointing, especially for the price. We arrived for a booking on time only to be told after chasing staff that our table wasn't ready. After standing around for approximately 20mins, we had to follow up with the staff again only to be told it would be another minute. We weren't the only ones waiting around, there were quite a few others.
Some of the staff appeared dismissive but others were polite and apologetic.
The food was average but the setting was nice.

Great ambience and very busy. Food very disappointing, and not value for money, although chef accommodating on variation of dishes. Would not rush back.

Never had a bad experience from Novikov Italian - even when I’ve ordered the wrong item.

Service is always on point and the food was superb.

I give four star to value because it is pricey compared to other Italian restaurants but the quality of ingredients, coupled with the service and the ambience gives it five stars in other areas.

I’m willing to spend on a special occasion, but to be charged so much money and be treated so appallingly is unacceptable. I don’t have the energy to detail our terrible experience, but they ruined our dinner with their hostility, rushing us through, and kicked us out while they let everyone else around us (who had been there much longer) eat their meals in peace. They clearly overbooked and thought two young women would be easy to bully out.

The service was absolutely fantastic noone missed a beat if your plate was empty it wasn't left on the table and if your glass was half full it would be getting refilled by a waiter. Thank you!

Food was really good wish the portion size was more but left full just tasted so nice could have done with a few more mouth fulls.

Wow. What a phenomenal experience! I had wanted to try Novikov for a while and wasn’t sure what to expect but I cannot fault a single thing. There was a fun, welcoming, fancy vibe. The decor was beautiful. The food was incredible (I had the burrata to start, pecorino pasta for main then golden nugget dessert). The staff were absolutely fantastic. I cannot wait to return and would recommend it to everyone!

I was quite nervous about visiting after reading some of the previous reviews but I can honestly say that from the moment we arrived to the moment we left we felt welcomed and very much looked after. The food was delicious (the bruschetta with nduja was amazing and the Cacio de Pepe totally memorable for all the right reasons!). My only complaint was that we were so full that we didn’t have room for dessert !
