Terrible restaurant. Perhaps the worst meal out I have had in London in a decade. Stale bread. Tasteless refrigerator-temperature burrata. Pasta that was over cooked and not fully drained. A mushroom sauce without a single mushroom. Bizzare decor with a fake plastic vine on the ceiling. Avoid at all costs.

Best Restaurant Experiences we had while in London!! From top
Notch service to fantastic food!

A wonderful restaurant with adorable staff! There is a new menu but I wanted something from the old one .No problem! My husband wanted his prawns shelled for him.No problem! Delicious food! To start ,huge green olives,fresh bread, Tuscan olive oil, and a bowl filled with sweet parmegiano reggiano right from the wheel were served immediately and of all things ,smarties and biscotti for the table at the end. We loved it!

This is one of the best rest in London. You can have best Italian wine selection with excellent meal presentation, incredibly tasty and service is top. You can drink highly rated wines by the glass and you can taste seasonal local fresh Italian foods!

You need to be careful selecting where to sit as the noise level varies and can be annoying. The
food is well-prepared and served. As the name suggests, the wine list is the reason for dining here
but it is not inexpensive. To give an idea of costs, an aperitif, three courses (the dessert really only a
taster, a carafe of wine, and coffee produced a bill of nearly £200.00 for two: this is roughly what
West End top line restaurants are going to cost, if not more.

The restaurant is quite beautiful. Spacious but cosy enough for an intimate dinner.
The staff were lovely, very attentive.
The food was delicious, lots of variety and everything on the menu seemed like a good choice. Also an extensive wine menu to choose from.
It's a bit pricey but lovely for a special occasion.

Very low quality food. Never again. The risotto with fresh artichoke was no risotto at all, just rice with artichokes from a tin. Gave it a second chance but realized it was as bad as first visit.

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.
