    Unfortunately the restaurant was closed due to refurbishment but did not state this on the website or via Open Table. We travelled to London for the weekend and had booked this place due to its location to the theatre.

    The service and food were great, my only slight disappointment is that is was expecting a calmer ambience, the atmosphere didn't match what I saw on the website/IG with lots of loud pop music playing (I half expected some Beatles or music of that era haha). That being said, we were in the middle of Soho so I imagine this vibe works really well for them. Such a small thing, I'd definitely come back for the lovely food, wine and service but maybe not if I was looking for a calmer atmosphere.

    Friendly service & nice atmosphere. The food was tasty but they could offer more for vegans, vegan cheese is readily available now so might be nice to offer this for pizzas. The wine seems quite pricey for what it is. It's a nice option for Covent Garden area and I would go again. :)

    We had booked but on arrival the sign said ‘closed’. Eventually established it was closed to walk-ins ( not clear). Not particularly warm and welcoming decor or atmosphere- nothing on the tables - no menus or decor. A bit dull /bland . The menu is fairly limited but the food was lovely - everything freshly cooked. Not a restaurant for a ‘buzzy ‘ feel of London or a special occasion.

    Really lovely food and great service. We went on a Saturday night and it was busy but then emptied not long after 10pm. We were the last group to leave with the staff tidying up and setting tables for the next day around us, encouraging us to get a move on (not in a rude way). Not a late dining place if you’re looking to take your time.

    Enjoyed the food and very happy they had vegan pasta and pizza options. It’s very close to Shaftesbury Theatre so great if you are seeing &Juliet. Good value. I only marked down as service a little on slow side on this occasion ( maybe because they were waiting for starters to finish so you should order both together) so I was a bit worried we might run late for show.
