Suggested by my friend as she had been before and loved it. Loved the attention from the staff, they sure know how to look after diners. We weren´t kicked out after 2 hours which was nice or maybe because the table wasn´t needed. Loved the food except for the dessert (creme brulee), being French, any creme brulee which feels really heavy won’t cut it but hey, maybe that’s how the Italians like theirs :-)
Overall, great experience and would certainly return.

Lovely meal here, great staff and very reasonable prices for London. I had the arrabiatta and requested extra garlic and chilli, which the chef kindly accommodated. Garlic bread perfect and olives were delicious. Other half had the Parma ham wrapped fillet steak, which he is still raving about. Food was great quality. Will definitely book again soon, as perfect place to bring friends or have a date night. Casual and stylish. Highly recommended.

Service was diabolical and waiters were rude.
As a lunch venue, food took a long time to be served. When it did arrive the food was cold.
The check was incorrect, they had charged us for a bottle of wine when only a glass had been requested. When pointed out there was no apology or thanks when payment was made.
From this experience i will not be visiting this venue.

When a restaurant knows it is short on wait staff and will struggle to give service, it should be upfront about it and manage expectations. Apologising when they bring the bill and belatedly offering limoncello is no use. On arrival to find that for a party of 3 flagged as a birthday dinner we are offered the table nearest the flow of people between the door and the loo wasn't a good augury. We suggested another table but that was 'reserved' although no-one sat at it for the rest of the evening. However, a third table was offered to our satisfaction and there we sat. Nothing said about the birthday, then or throughout the evening. Perhaps they only notice if you bring balloons as did the 60th party and the 50th party that turned up later on.
Don't think that service wasn't personable, it was friendly enough but stressed and busy staff don't radiate a good vibe that says 'we're glad you're here'. Bruschetta for the table turned up after the starters so that was another unintended timing trip-up.
Never mind all that, what was the food like? Brilliant as always at AV. I remarked that the biggest problem with the menu is FOMO - whatever you order there is the 'fear of missing out' if someone on the table loves something more than you. This time everyone ordered different things and everyone was so happy with what they got that there was no envy at all. All plates went back completely empty.
Nobody is ever likely to say that AV is a cosy restaurant, business-like is probably all you can say, no extra points for vibe or music. Maybe we should try Deliveroo and get their food in our home instead....

The food was excellent but the restaurant was understaffed and therefore, although very pleasant, the staff just couldn’t cope. It was a pity as our friends are American and are used to a totally different level of service, we ended up feeling very embarrassed about the whole experience.

The restaurant had a very Italian feel. The food was great with the scallops “Capesante con Pancetta e Purea di Piselli“ one of the best starters I have had for a long time. I ordered one of my favourites which is “Lasagne alla Siciliana” with a twist and it delivered. I would recommend this restaurant.
