Place is cute and clean and staff was super friendly, the food was not bad but it was missing something, some flavor. We went on NYE so it could’ve been that.

An upmarket Italian - good service and nice food. The restaurant is perfectly placed opposite the theatre which makes it an ideal venue for a meal pre or post theatre.

One of the best Italian restaurants in London, good quality products very well prepared. The aubergine timballo is a must.

This is a pleasant restaurant with friendly efficient staff. However the food was not great - very greasy aubergine- too much cheese on a pizza etc. It is also quite expensive.

The food was very lack lustrous and bland. The atmosphere was great though and the birthday option was there but the cake was sooo very dry. Honestly the price only really matched the atmosphere and service. Way too expensive for dry & flavourless food.

I booked this place with my friends for my birthday. We were disappointed by the service that was given by the staff. Nothing was mentioned that we booked this for my birthday or even anything offered. The waiter kept rushing us to order the food and then left us waiting for ages to give us the food. We could tell that the people next to our table were not happy either.

The food was amazing but I won’t come back due to the service. It didn’t meet my expectations at all. I know there was a time frame for the reservation but there are ways to communicate with customers. At the end of the day, you are out for lunch to appreciate the space and also the food, not to rush!

Slightly underwhelmed by the quality of the food [specifically the vegetarian lasagna]. Service was however impeccable. Additional outside heaters would be greatly appreciated.

Birthday lunch ... very good service. The pasta menu was slightly reduced could be due to post lockdown. Food was very nice I just wish they had a vegetarian ravioli dish.

The food was really good, but our outside table was the only with no heating close. It would have been nice to have at least candles or something to keep us warm in a really cold night.

The service here is really professional and fantastic. Came here for a last hurrah before lockdown 2.0; they were incredibly busy and there were only 2 or 3 servers for the entire room, but we were warmly and promptly taken care of. That and the great food and cosy atmosphere made for a really enjoyable last supper.

Unfortunately, the seafood risotto my partner ordered was undercooked, so we have to send it back.
Pizza was instead really good!
The waitress assisted us really quickly.

Always a favorite for Italian in the city, and I'm loving the current Calabrian special menu. Always get the burrata to start and the fried zucchini on the side!

Definitely my favourite local restaurant.

Fabulous, fresh food in a friendly, relaxed environment.

Every dish was wonderful - and very generous portion sizes.

We got a large collection of starters, plus a pizza to share, a main each and 2 desserts! (Obviously we couldn’t finish it all, but we had a wonderful time trying)!
