Fabulous meal, service and ambiance was wonderful. The decore is understated, doesn't take over from the meal, but has some good art work. I would suggest the steak - it was perfect.

Agree with a couple of the recent reviews. Food is bland and expensive for what it is. The signature Tagliata is not a Tagliata at all - it’s not even cut into ribbons and the balsamic glaze is non-existent. Staff are pleasant but as stated elsewhere, don’t know the menu or the wine. Wine list is actually good but if you’re going to serve decent wine, don’t do it in Ikea wine glasses and instead invest in some decent glassware.
We went on a Thursday night and it was empty.
If this continues it’ll be closed by the summer.

Whilst the service was good, I was disappointed with the menu and food, with a limited menu, I was expecting a more interesting set of dishes than the basic options offered and I have to say that the food whilst executed well, lacked any real flavour and left me questioning the price/value.

This is the third time I have dinner at this restaurant and the food has never failed me.

Presentation is nice, food is good and the place is very cozy and well kept.

This time the service, usually good, was just not up to the standards. Orders took almost one hour to arrive, there were mistakes in the drinks and the glass was filled to often (please, leave that poor bottle on the table!)

Still a good restaurant that I suggest, maybe I got the wrong night for the service

Return visit to this quiet and discreet restaurant just a stone’s through from Liverpool St Station and a hop and a skip from the City.
Relaxed and refined atmosphere with a very friendly welcome upon arrival.
Very good food and an appropriate wine list too.

Sadly a change of chef and waiting staff have transformed this once great urban Italian dining experience into an overpriced farce. The staff are curt and clearly don’t know the menu and the new chef has ruined the once stylish modern take on Italian classics. The quality of ingredients remains great, but the experience and execution is poor. I used to love this restaurant but I will not be returning after the experience tonight. Overpriced, overrated, avoid!!!

Nice and quiet for business conversation, food is lovely and service is very attentive, maybe a bit too much though, my friend and I were asked every two minutes if we were ready to order for several times (we were there 6pm in the afternoon so not really a busy time of the day)

Great city location very near Liverpool Street.
Service was slower than would be expected.
Vegetarian options limited but fine. Had to clarify with the chef as server was not sure. Perhaps should clearly label with a “V”.

We went for Valentines with a fixed menu.
The menu seemed really nice and at a very good price.
But the starter is very small, 1shrimp 2 bites of tuna tartare (dry with no dressing) and 3 tiny pieces of seabass soaked in passion fruit juice. I had the risotto with salmon and it was bland, tasteless. The salmon was dry. Mi fiancée had the ribeye and that was much better, tasty with truffle. I wish I had that instead. The dessert to share was good, white chocolate bomb with passion fruit and white chocolate mousse inside, good portion to share.
But the wine list is overpriced and a glass of wine starts at 8gbp, aperitivo spritz are £10! The venue wasn’t too pretty and not really new, the walls had damaged paint and our room smelled too much of perfume candle. Overall I am a bit disappointed especially because I saw so many good reviews about this Italian restaurant.

Got the 3 course valentines menu. Disappointed with the starter and dessert. Main was amazing. At first we thought it was a bit empty as there were no carbs present, but the juicy pistachio wrapped ribeye with truffle and cheese sauce really hit home. Worked out at about £58 per head with a bottle so wasnt too bad

Celebrated my birthday here and had a wonderful evening! We had our own area and the staff were very welcoming and quick to serve us. They forgot to make 2 drinks that were ordered and were very apologetic and then gave us them on the house. The food was delicious, the background music was great and we all had a really good night out!

The desert was really good.

Foods were too salty and were not the Italian foods we like. The area behind the kitchen looks good for more people eat together as a separate VIP room but it smells. It needs a good ventilation to have some fresh air inside.

I booked this for work colleagues as I had a good experience. Really shocked to hear that considering the place was more or less empty, drinks were forgotten, no recommendations for side orders when the main dish was very small. They only had a main course and a drink and this took 2 hours. Whoever was serving them was very disinterested. It's a shame because the food was good.

We went on Saturday at 6.30pm as they opened so ,unsurprisingly,it was quiet. We liked the intimate rooms. Service was extremely good .My wife loved her raw salmon starter and we enjoyed the 'Tagliata' signature dish of sirloin. All in all a very pleasing experience - we would go back

I have booked a table in advance for a special occasion but our table was in front of the loos and the smell really disturbed our lunch. There was no bread offered to us. Mushrooms were invisible for a dish supposed to be full of mushrooms (I suspect they used a brined mushrooms.) Overall very disappointed.
