We went for the festive menu as it seemed the best value to money. The food was really good but it is an expensive treat.

this is a fantastic restaurant must go to immediately - or at least today !

Our rather obvious disabilities ( old and deaf) were admirably catered for.

Very good choice, and well cooked. I had agnolotti which was delicious, Veru attentive and not over-attentive service
Thank you Oliver Dearlove

Food was nice but very small portion sizes think I got 5 pieces of tortelloni, I also put it was my girlfriends graduation meal considering the price of the place thought they may have done something for her but nothing

Beautiful building courteous and attentive staff.
The food was well presented and very one in my party enjoyed their meal. It was definitely one of the best Italian meals we have had in a long while.
As someone from out of town I had no idea what to expect on arrival so in hindsight would have probably made more of an effort to dress up as everyone else there was glammed up to the max. Top night out

The food was shocking and totally overpriced, £15 for a starter and tuna pizza with no cheese. The staff need to give there heads a shake because they are waiters and not footballers or wags.

I was disappointed, the waitresses wrongly advised us on our food choices (she didn’t seem to know the Ragu dish was vegan) and the other waitress plonked down our dishes without checking whose was whose then gave me a surly look when I politely pointed this out. The food was pretty average to be honest, not great value and I won’t be rushing back. I booked a while ago to treat my 80 year old mum, we drove over from Liverpool. The entrance and decorations looked lovely and mum had a lovely photo taken there 😍so that was the best bit

Sasha at reception was very kind and lovely… waiters were busy but attentive to theirs best ways but in ladies toilets there was crowded by people that they haven’t had tables just come on staircase to do self - pictures and it was very hard to actually get to bathroom… is unnecessary people “ young “ girls doing pictures on walking path .. paying customers should be priority not walking 🚶‍♀️ in people…

We had to wait 45 minutes to be seated at the table. We then had to ask to order as the service was very slow. Once our food arrived it was horrible and not what was described. The artichoke risotto was plain and crunchy. The vegan gnocchi was dry and tasteless.

Very disappointed after looking forward to our meal. Service wasn’t great, starter was massively over priced for what we got and the main courses were bland to say the least. Overall very disappointing and not cheap !

The service was shocking, our waited was huffing and puffing. As usually go off waiter recommendation when visiting a new restaurant and she said ‘look at the menu yourself I don’t know what you want’ the word being waiter recommendation. Unfortunately I will not be returning.

A very disappointing experience. My friend and I arrived, there was a doorman who stood next to the door but did not open it for us. The staff at reception were talking amongst themselves and took a few minutes to acknowledge us and then just said "yeh?" rather than welcoming us. The staff for the rest of the service were miserable. A very unwelcoming atmosphere and any request seemed like a big effort to them. The food was below average, even more so considering the price. The server spilt bits of wine on the table and didn't apologise and the service was slow. Will not be returning.
