Chose this for a pre-theatre dinner and it was excellent. We were given plenty of time to order and our food was delivered speedily by polite, attentive and smiling staff. Just gone back to add another "star" to the value for money box, as we enjoyed both our "happy hour" cocktails and the very good house wine, both of which are good value. Hadn't tried tigellas before, and they weren't bad. Both my wife's seafood pasta dish and my own variant on fish and chips were excellent. Staff were very good, especially the young lady from Bologna!

Visited before a show at the Dominion theatre. Staff really friendly explaining the tigella on the menu and we shared a board as a starter. The tigella are lovely and would have as a main in future. Main pasta portions were good size, not too large. Service really quick and happy hour on cocktails made it very good value.

A delicious lunch of home made pasta, tigella and fresh ingredients. We sat upstairs with a lovely waitress. The food was enjoyed by 3 generations, aged 14, 50 and 79 years!

lovely wine, nice atmosphere. Was there for a meeting and they were happy to let us sit for some time over food and wine! Quite a quirky, cool venue worth checking out if you are local or in the area

Super friendly service (grazie Flavia!) and amazing food. It felt like being at home in Italy.
Me and my two friend had a table in the hi-top area, which we loved.
Thank you for the great evening.

Unfortunately we felt that our meal was very poor value. Small portions and no presentation / lasagne in a smallish ramekin. Seafood risotto very expensive and only one prawn and one mussel...I’m sure it was only meant to be prawn and mussel but had other seafood in it?! Our prawn tigella was delicious but only two prawns and a bit of avocado for £7!!!

I didn’t complain because we only had an hour before the theatre plus it was a special occasion.

My mother offered to pay as a treat but I felt bad for her as our meal was disappointing and really expensive for what it was.

The service was fantastic and we couldn’t fault the waitresses. I do hope the manager can do something for us to return again?

Beautiful food. Unique - only place selling traditional Italian Tigella in the UK. Pasta dishes delicious. Great service with good and knowledgeable explanation of the dishes on the menu.
Very good prosecco - by the glass or bottle.
Great location - 2 mins walk away from the Dominion Theatre . Highly recommend for pre or post matinee performances - or pre evening (not sure what time it closes.)

The food was quite tasty but the service was quite slow particularly when you take into account that the restaurant was not full. Reasonably priced with more of a cafe feel to the place than a restaurant.

Good location but menu options a bit limited and no real dessert options. Would be sensible to have a photograph on the menu of some of the food, so it is clear what the choices are. Chips were good and overall experience good, but at times, the waitress was a bit distracted.

Dinner was delicious, very nice selection served in a very typical way. Quite a treat, and the wine selection perfectly side all choices of mains and Tigelle. Service could surely be improved

Lovely concept for a restaurant : the tigellas were a treat, very tasty and not too heavy. Amazing how they can go well with both mushroom/gorgonzola and also lovely with nutella! The ambience was great - they were playing Peter Pan (with subtitles) on a massive screen when we arrived [so random] and then when it finished, changed it to Moana! Unique find, and great location for the Dominion Theatre.

Met up with friends for a pre-theatre meal. It wasn't obvious to find from the outside as the name sign looks more like a shop front but once we'd established we were in the right place we were pleasantly surprised by the selection of tigella fillings available, all very tasty - I would particularly recommend the tuna one. Also the 2 for £10 cocktails until 8PM was a welcome bonus.

This isn’t an Italian restaurant. The food quality was appalling and the service shocking. Avoid at all costs.

Starter was fun and good. Risotto was stodgy. Pannacotta was a little too set but coulis was delicious. Ambience was strange with huge screen with disney cartoons. It was near the Dominion theatre, which was why we chose it. It was Ok but not very good.

Booked early evening at Oxford Street branch prior to show at the Dominiom round the corner. Welcomed at door and shown to table in window that already had a 'Reserved' flag on it (don't always see that these days). Ordered bottle of wine from list and pleased to see very reasonable prices for this part of London (or anywhere else for that matter). Order for food taken and arrived without unreasonable delay. Food was delicious and portion sizes were good. The freshness of the food was obvious. The service was friendly, attentive and not intrusive or overbearing. Fresh, light and satisfying food that was very well priced, well served and presented, and ideal prior to an evening sitting down in the theatre.
