We have been here on several occasions. The food and wine are good and prices very reasonable for London. The staff are always very welcoming.

I love this place as the food is imaginative, fresh and real Italian. It is a far cry from most London Italian restaurants. My only gripe is that the noise levels are high as the place fills.

Remains my favourite West End place - ideal for meeting friends or work connections. Always friendly service and great food. I took a party of 5 after a show on this occasion and [ unprompted] 3 commented on the atmosphere and food and said they would return [ without me it seemed!].

This restaurant has been in business for many years and that is not surprising. The food is varied and beautifully cooked and presented. The dishes contain only fresh produce and on one occasion I stood at the bar waiting for a table and was able to watch the kitchen at work - I was most impressed.
Service is attentive and friendly and the ambiance very busy in a family kind of way.
An exceptional example of a family run Italian restaurant.

We had an excellent meal. The Oslo bucolic went Dow a treat and was gone leaving me looking for more! As it was my friend has a tiny appetite so I finished his (quite delicious) pasta. The 2 fish dishes my wife and our other friend had were superb. My only regret is that the chocolate sauce tasted as if it came out of a bottle.

excellent old-fashioned restaurant serves are generous service courteous acoustics not perfect and rabbit was not available but sufficiently good that I have been five times this year and brought 20 odd people with me,no complaints guests included vegans and the full array of eating disorders so an impressive outcome

My husband works nearby and comes quite frequently, mainly at lunchtime. He has wanted me to come for some time. We were pleasantly surprised it was busy on a Saturday night. All great. Not sure about the TV though.

Great, quiet venue, easy, comfortable, traditional Italian food. Always a good option for a quiet dinner with parents or in laws! We had to wait a while for our bill, which was annoying and I wish they didn’t have a TV there but I’ll go again.

We ate here while traveling from the U.S. in January. We were very impressed with the food and the service. Perhaps that was because it was a slow night for the restaurant in January. We returned here this week and found a different set of circumstances. Service was less than adequate. Had to summon the waiter a few times. Found the waiter to be extremely obnoxious.
He told us they had run out of zucchini flowers and that he had the last portion of it. We didn't need to hear that.
In addition, if you have your busboy serve the wine, make sure he knows how to serve wine!
Show the bottle (not done until asked), ask if I would like it tasted ( that was asked), but then the wine should be poured to the two women who were with me before adding to my glass (not done).

The food is extremely good and the surrounding bright cheerful and functional.
I have already mentioned it to friends and will be returning very soon.
