Fantastic meal and brilliant service from the team. Restaurant seemed quieter than usual (understandable during Covid), but that didn't stop the waiters from providing us with excellent service. Food was brilliant, the recommended wine was fantastic, and we couldn't have been spoilt anymore for our anniversary. Will definitely be visiting the London branch soon!

Incredible restaurant. The staff are polite and friendly and the decor inside is bold and beautiful oak wood with Italian touches. They even brought out a huge cake for my wife’s birthday. Can’t thank the restaurant enough it was a night to remember.

All the service was fabulous. Def a fine dinning.
But the food was not very much amazing compared to price. And if you share the plate food you have to pay extra 10euros for each. So we paid literally 30 euros for just sharing a plate. But the ambience and other things were not bad. For the price aspect, just go to Michelin restaurant.

I ordered the Dover Sole and a salad. Everything tasted mediocre. The green salad was not on the menu and it was enough to feed a family of four. It also cost 20 euros. The cappuccino (yes I know in Italy it isn’t done after noon) was mediocre which is near impossible to find in Italy. I would not recommend this place to anyone.
On the up side, the service and ambience was exceptional.

This was a wonderful restaurant. Very elegant and comfortable space. The food was quite good and the service was excellent. I particularly appreciated the recommendations from my server. I would definitely return to this restaurant and if I would have had time, I would have returned on this visit. I had the turbot and while I normally liked quite cooked fish, this was a little too done. I also ordered the artichoke salad and it was very good, not what I expected, with almost raw artichoke but shaved very thin. Very good dish.

We went to celebrate an anniversary and were greeted by Jonathan (manager) and the Andrea (sommelier). Andrea really started the night off well by offering a sparkling red wine Bonarda, Giorgi which we loved and would recommend €40 a bottle.

We didn’t know what we wanted to order and the tasting menu offered a lot and felt good value for money so we went for this.

The food was very good, 8 course for €80. Each plate came out in a timely manor packed full of flavour!

Only negative feedback is the lack of ambience, some music or theatre around the food would add extra value.

It’s a good experience and one we won’t forget.

Thanks Giannino
