    Six of us had a long lunch. My son's 25th. Very important - We were tucked around a corner so we had space and could hear each other. Food , service was good. price was down to our wines choice and which wasnt silly for the location. All loved it.

    Waited 15 mins before anyone came to ask about drinks/water, and then we got our starters and our mains before any of our drinks arrived. We had to ask twice where they were, and no apologies whatsoever. Food was really delicious, all of it incredible and very generous portions, drinks are a rip-off. £5 for a tiny 200ml coke, less than a can? £7 for an iced tea that’s 99% ice.

    This is a very popular restaurant situated behind Harrod’s, so make a reservation! Staff is attentive yet not overbearing. Food is very good. Of the Italian restaurants in the area, this is the best. Give it a try.

    It was nice but very busy we were a squeezed by the windows and the waiters kept knocking our table every time we went past and I would say my chicken was a little overcooked. They just needed attention to detail. They were very rushed so felt rust in and out.

    We were visiting for second time. This time they did not bring change back, the vaitres was ignoring us after we paid cash. Secon time the put extra desert in to our bill. Good, that my friend spotted. Stuff was not wery friendly, then we show the mistake. We had for starter - bread and olives with same oil to dip it. They did not bring small plates for us. Stuff was ignoring us.

    Alluring aroma of truffle as we walked in, which was a good sign. We all enjoyed the food espesh Harry's Tagliolini and the 'nduja roast potatoes with their crispy crunch. Slight word of warning, the Gamberi E 'Nduja were unexpectedly spicy for those who ordered them (an errant chilli seed maybe?), but that was solved by a bit of Antipasti bartering around the table. The final recipient (me) found them delicious. The place had a good buzz for a Monday lunchtime. The service was excellent and attentive, with not a hint of a hurry-up from the staff despite being there for 5 hours and the place being busy.
