Amazing food and service
We had a fantastic meal yesterday as a group of 6 ladies before heading off to the theatre. Food was absolutely delicious, beautifully presented, fresh and hot. Between us we had sea bass with prawn and clams, risotto and the lamb, plus bowls of courgette chips and each of us would definitely recommend the dish we ate. We thoroughly enjoyed sampling the lovely cocktails too, all presented in very pretty glasses, and not too pricey considering it’s London. We didn’t stay for coffee as we needed to get to the theatre but our bill came with truffles instead of the usual mints. Nice touches like this mean a lot, plus we were all given a lovely little tote bag with the name of the restaurant on it. The staff were really lovely, very polite and friendly and service was quick and we were left alone to eat in peace, staff only coming over discreetly to see if we needed anything. The manager/owner had a nice chat with us prior to our meal and was very friendly.
I would thoroughly recommend this restaurant for a romantic meal or a meal out with family and friends. We’ll done!
Service had lost the plot on our visit. Stater arrived with the mains, no real engagement with customers, more cafe type service. You can do a lot better next door.
Lovely food and service! And a wonderful atmosphere too. Definitely worth a trip
Lovely food, lovely vibe. And reasonable price. Would recommend.
Service was very slow - a good 20mins just to get a menu (had to request) - must have asked for water about 3 or 4 times.
food was great, but pricy.
I was super impressed with everything. Incredible good, great service and good value for money. I’ve already recommended to others, and will be back!
Amazing food, lovely setting! Would definitely recommend!
This was our first visit and certainly won’t be our last! Very friendly staff, we were sat in the open doors so we were able to take in the vibes from the street but still enjoy the restaurant experience. Great food and just an all round good time, we will be back!
Really nice lunch, we all loved our mains and it was reasonably priced. We were not asked to leave the table once our allotted time was up and we’re able to continue with cocktails etc until we were ready to leave. The waitresses were all really friendly and happy to help us in any way they could, nothing was too much trouble!
Never fail to have good food in a lovely atmosphere here
Amazing food and amazing service. Definitely will be going back soon
As usual great place to go , brilliant staff who very friendly and helpful , nothing too much trouble , great food and good value for the area
It took a while to get served but the staff were lovely and the food is delicious and good value.
Excellent food, lovely staff, a bit noisy, but that’s because it’s popular.
Brilliant evening great food and great service
Good location, food ok. Reliable Italian mid-range place.
Busy Soho bistro with a menu to suit everyone. Recommend the lamb rump!
Lovely evening - food was fantastic !
We sat inside and outside and enjoyed both - will deffo be back !
Brilliant food very tasty and the portions were satisfying. Definitely recommend to anyone who loves good Italian food.
Our table was still occupied when we arrived and we were given a complementary Prosecco, excellent customer service. Food was amazing, wine was lovely and the staff were fabulous, even brought a bowl of water for our dog without us asking. Can’t wait to go back and would totally recommend. Great place for family or couples 🥰
Music is so loud everybody is screaming which means you leave with a headache
Loved this restaurant, food amazing, the staff fantastic, would def recommend. Price perfect, not expensive and not cheap, wine great price. Will come again
Wine warmer than the food.
We visited on a warm Saturday lunchtime. The staff were friendly and the menu looked ok, mostly Italian style dishes. The food itself was tasty enough but was properly cold by the time it reached us, this was coupled with warm white wine which was disappointing. It’s a shame as the food had potential.
Wasn’t what we were expecting. It’s okey and not extraordinary in any sense. The cocteles where good, though.
Good Italian restaurant. Lobster ravioli was great, my partner enjoyed the ricotta & truffle ravioli and pistachio tiramisu.
Very loud and very slow, the food was quite good but not a great experience overall.
Terrific food, reasonably priced for bang in the centre of Soho.
Visited for lunch with a friend. Food was delicious and great service!
The food was nice but it wasn’t anything special. It didn’t have that authentic Italian feel. I have had many better Italians, but I have also had worse. Probably wouldn’t go back or recommend to a friend. Lacked ambience and food took a long time to come considering how small the menu was.
Great location for outdoor dining.
Can't beat it on a warm evening.
Friendly staff with good food (decent portions)
Very Good Italian Food and great service and attention
Lovely service and great environment. Starters excellent and my main of Sean mass was great. But the pizzas were really not good, some strange liquid cheesy mixture poured all over which made them really soggy and unpleasant. A pity.
Good food and drinks
The food was very good and the service was fast - it was a nice day indeed
Food was great, very busy and good service.
Great quality of food and service.
It's not as much delicious as I thought, a little bit disappointed. Food is still better than average. Dining tables outside are too close. Also there are people smoke during eating, unpleasant. Service good.
Lovely as ever, particularly thee service, but I do think the post lockdiwn allocation of an hour and a half for dinner is just not quite fair on the diner. I understand it financially for the restaurant but when you've waited to meet friends and are spending 30 quid plus a head..I think it needs extending to two hours like the rest of London
