Good for lunch in Canary Wharf. Food fresh and enjoyable. However, the menu is somewhat hard to follow. The location is ok, but it’s essentially in a corridor and as such the ambience suffers.

I have eaten here before and had a really good experience however the waitress we had on Saturday night was very rude and started clearing tables and chairs around us even though there were other tables she could have cleared first. I also booked the table for 7:30pm and when we got there we were rushed to order because the kitchen was closing. It would have been nice to have been told beforehand that this would have been the case as we would have booked an earlier time.

The pizza was served cold. We thought the waiter was rude in his response to a request to heat it. We will not be returning to this restaurant and will not be recommending it to friends.

The waitress was clueless, she could not answer any questions we had about the menu. The starters were okay nothing special. The pizza mains were large but disappointing especially the pesto pizza, it looked like they had emptied most of the jar on the pizza, which made it very wet and was soaked into the base. For two of us with one starter each and one main each and two drinks each the bill came to £100, definitely was not worth that price. I do not recommend this place.

The menu has changed. Some of the good desserts have disappeared like the panacea ai pistachio, and some of the items have gone more expensive and smaller like the bruschetta. The quality of food remains good but management needs to be careful and aware of changes in the size of the portions.

There were just two pasta dishes that had meat, one being the Carbonara. Even the lasagna was vegetarian. The decent wines were out of stock. It was our friends birthday. We upped and left. They used to sell Italian food, now it's just trendy veggie stuff.

£30 for one pizza and one glass of prosecco was excessive even for Canary Wharf. The pizza was tasty but toppings were not overly generous.

Great food, especially the mozzarella, and wonderful fresh salad and vegetables. I was pleased I was warned that the tuna in the salad came from a tin. What a surprise in a restaurant where freshness and Italian quality food is so important! Overall though, a great lunch.

While it sits in this middle passway of commuters - it’s a great spot. Views of Canary Wharf and Isle of Dogs. Good food for the money. Friendly staff. Will eat there again.

It’s fine. I do have to compliment the service. They were extremely friendly, helpful and welcoming, especially as I arrived near closing. The pizza was as expected. The wine overpriced. There are equally good places a short walk away that are less expensive, but this is not a bad choice.

Location is perfect and easy to find from Canary Wharf underground station.
Good for a business lunch, but its very busy at during lunch service as you expect.
The service was very "business like".
The food was a little basic for my liking

Food was great, and our waitress was superb and smiley - though when she was elsewhere difficult to get others' attention when needed and where we were located it was freezing which impacted on the enjoyment of the evening a little bit, that said excellent food and fab in the spring/summer months

Unfortunately they had no knowledge of the free glass of wine with a main course offer but luckily I had the confirmation email on my phone so they had to comply. My husband and I chose a simple pasta dish which was of poor quality -pasta was all rubbery as if been hanging around for some time and the topping was really minuscule. My nephew chose a pizza which was much better. The waitress was very friendly but very busy. Not a very good experience food wise.

Overall the service and the food was pleasant, however we asked for a topping of mushrooms on the pizza and when we got the bill we were charged £12 for the topping on a £11 pizza.

When we questioned this we were told Puccini mushrooms were a premium and that we had been charged the same price as a starter of these mushrooms - as a topping (the other topping we ordered was £2). We were never informed that the extra topping would be so extortionate when we ordered. If we knew we would simply have gone for a different topping. The manager was extremely rude when we questioned the bill at the end, and raised her voice towards us. This ruined what had been a nice evening celebrating my mother's birthday.

Pre-cooked, reheated pasta?! Come on, that went out in the 80s! And such a miserly portion! What restaurant is proud to announce they "don't use onion or garlic" in their cooking (and no salt, apparently)? The only saving grace was the good quality mozzarella and courteous service.

Besides the mozzarella which was good, the pizza was totally uninspiring: dry and with a very thin layer of tomato sauce.
Desserts were good.

This is my boss's favorite restaurant in Canary Wharf for casual business lunches. The food quality is consistently good (his go-to dish is the Tuna salad /Insalata Tonno) and the service quick and courteous.
