Great experience overall
great lunch with the puppy. amazing food and wine
Amazing food and service, friendly staff, and great atmosphere.
We were able to sit outside and enjoy the lovely late summer weather. I ate the seabass with prawns on buttered spinach and sides of courgette chips and seasonal veg - it was absolutely delicious - fish perfectly cooked - the whole thing felt very indulgent, which is what I wanted! Desserts not too large but equally lovely. Service very good - not obtrusive but friendly and knowledgeable about the food and wine. Will definitely come back.
Great food, lovely surroundings, excellent service. We'll recommended.
Very welcoming. Service was outstanding. Food really good.
The food was okay, seafood linguine wasn’t what I would usually expect as they had actual pieces of fish mixed in as opposed to just prawns, squid etc. The garlic bread was decent
Nice lunch but it works have been nice to sit outside as no atmosphere inside
Very good food! Carpaccio was amazing
Combination of the usual traditional Italian fare and some unusual originals. Beetroot and goats cheese arancini for example. Sea bass with prawns highly recommended. Located in the heart of Soho with additional tables outside (at least for now) Great for people watching. Friendly staff. Effective distancing whilst still managing to keep a lively ambience. I’ll be back
Lovely setting and we had a great booth down the back.
Food was fantastic and the service as good. The champagne glasses are to die for.
We went to the restaurant for our 15th wedding anniversary and researched prior to book this resurant.
The food wasnt nice , very cheep ingredients just a tin of tomatoes mixed into spaghetti.
Wasnt worth the money .
Lovely restaurant, great vibe, great food, friendly and efficient staff
Great food and service - wouldn’t hesitate to return
Good portions, tasty food, good value, lovely staff
The service and food were generally quite good. It was busy but we did not have to wait too long to be served.
The food was delicious and enhanced by the busy atmosphere and mood lighting however the experience was slightly dampened by the service. It took a couple times asking for items of food and some food didn’t even turn up. It was our first time going but because I feel service is a big part of the overall experience I probably wouldn’t be rushing.
Pros: Nice and flavourful dishes and good size portions, good ambience inside
Cons: Long wait before we got seated (despite being the first customers of the day), ordered lobster pasta and was informed that they’d run out of lobster (again, we were the first customers) and it could be replaced by crab meat - however we still got charged the full price for lobster!, they do a 2- and 3- course deal which we were not informed of before I looked it up online and asked about it
Lovely little restaurant with beautiful ambient. Waiters were very friendly and food great! Would recommend:)
Food was fantastic and service was very good. Manager Sophie was very helpful and polite. Definitely will go back again and recomend the food.
Great food, great service and a good price for the quality of food!
It was a lovely evening I would return the staff were amazing
Excellent will definitely be returning.
Food and staff fantastic
Good food, attentive staff
An outside table means on the street amid the roadworks, so we opted for inside. Social distancing is dubious. Food was some of the best Italian in London. Seafood linguine was exceptional. Service attentive without being intrusive. We had a great time!
Great restaurant, great food, great service. Will be going back again!
Been coming here for several years. Great food, great service, great ambience and great value for Soho.
Great restaurant all round. Great staff, service, food. No complaints
We arrived at this busy little eatery at 9pm on a busy Saturday evening. We were greeted by a very cheery Sophie who showed us to our table. The interior of the restaurant was full but not overly crowded and I did feel that socially distancing measures had been adhered to. It was also spotlessly clean and our table didn't have a single crumb on it ( yes I checked) and there was a very faint and reassuring whiff of antibacterial spray. So from a covid safety point of view I would rate this highly. The food was simply delicious!! I had the tiger prawns followed by the chicken risotto and I was not disappointed. The prawns were succulent and perfectly cooked and the risotto was just perfect in both flavours and texture. My Wife and my son both had a pizza and my daughter had a rib eye steak, all of them were happy with their choices. Ive never been there before but would definitely go again, it would be perfect for a group couples night out. It is situated within the pedestrianised area in soho (we got a taxi but if you were driving then consider parking) there is seating outside and the whole road of around 7 or 8 eateries also had seating outside so it has the feeling of a busy square or Piazza. Overall great location, great food, lovely friendly but professional service and really good value.
Attractive friendly restaurant, good vibe. Food was terrific, needed to be a bit proactive with the drinks but generally the service was good. Well worth a visit, good value too. Will definitely return ⭐️
Great meal, team really helpful and friendly
They didn't have out booking, but were very pleasant
After reading reviews I thought I’d check this place out. Disappointing to say the least. Slow service and food was nothing to write home about. Expensive for what it is as well. Bread, 2 pizzas, a cola and a glass of wine came to £70. Seems a bit over the top of you ask me. Won’t be going back.
Expense and not good value at all. Was rather disappointed in this restaurant.
Had to wait for the table for a while past our booking time.
The staff was so lovely, helpful and friendly. Food was absolutely delicious and the atmosphere was buzzing. Loved it.
Food was absolutely delicious, although was a little slow but no issue as starter was prompt and enough and time was spent chatting over a glass of wine in the nice outdoor dining area. Was a little expensive for a casual meal.
Great food and service. A little loud but not really an issue
Amazing steak great prices great service and great everything!!!
This is one of my favourite restaurants in London and it was wonderful to finally go back after lockdown. We got a great welcome from the manager, and the food was superb. They’ve also done a good job with coronavirus, particularly given it’s a small space, with hand santitizer at the door and lots of ventilation.
