This has been a consistent favorite of mine in London. However, poor service (constant haggling to place our order, within 3 min of sitting down, the waiter's lack of knowledge of the specials when it was time to order, and a just a "fair" meal - not bad by any stretch, but just nothing special/unique such that we are used to at Frescobaldi. The restaurant has clearly slipped versus other recent experiences.

Overall very good. However the waiters were so eager to fill our glasses and impatient to order more bottles that they fill your glass three times before you even touch it, up to the top, and they ended up mixing sparkling and still water to finish the bottles even faster!

This restaurant lacks sophistication and quality. The restaurant was very tired and the food not nice at all. They seem stuck in a rut and are living off of glory days gone by. I was very disappointed and would never return or recommend it.

If you ask a server something he will ask another one to do it, and sometimes they keep ignoring it until they find someone else to do it, overall really poor service.

We had difficulty in choosing our meal from such a varied menu, but eventually we both plumped for the octopus starter followed by the shared Florentine style T bone steak. The octopus was beautifully presented and has excellent texture and taste, but the steak that followed was not as good as I hoped it would be, although perfectly cooked it just didn't have the depth of flavour I would have expected from such a prime cut. Which was a real shame as the restaurant itself is well worth a visit as the cavernous well appointed dinning room is a very pleasant space to while away an evening whilst enjoying good Italian cooking.

Overall unfortunately poor. Set a minimum of £70 per head and only tell us AFTER we ordered our drinks.
Quality of the pasta was very poor as was the starters. The other mains we saw others have looked ok.
Waited 11 minutes at the front desk and even then they got my name wrong 3 times and told me I hadn't booked.
Took 21 minutes to actually order after asking twice can I order, very odd.
Waitress was incredibly rude on two occasions which was a real shame.
There are many better Italian restaurants in London for sure. Avoid.

Great place for business lunch, lovely andcwarm ambiance. One of my favoutite place to eat with amazing wine list. We were however let down last time by a nearly invisible waiter (as quick as a flash) and new smart device to pour wine without removing cork which unable the wine to open and develop, rather missing the point.

I went to this restaurant for a special occasion with my wife in search of an authentic Italian restaurant in London (we are both Italians so perhaps our expectations might have been higher than normal).
We left the restaurant with the impression that this restaurant doesn't really know what it wants to be, a fine dining restaurant or a more relaxed "traditional italian" restaurant.
Both the pasta and the meat course were very good, but the starter with the chicken liver pate' was disappointing and the bread a bit stale. We also were not very impressed with the dessert, my wife did not enjoy the chef's re-interpretation of the tiramisu, and my millefoglie looked like a plate of cereals.
The dinner was expensive and overall we felt it wasn't good value for money.

It was very expensive for the food you got.
The food was little and not special.
There was only a small collection of wines (most of them from Tuscany) and the most tasteful ones were overly priced.
We regret that we went, the evening before better eaten with delicious wine for half the price!!
