Divine Italian Restaurant

One of the wonderful things about London fine dining restaurants is their outstanding service - its discreet, polished and very proper. Having said that, this spot takes an extra leap by serving some of the best Italian meals I've had in my life. The dining room is stylishly decorated.

My husband has had several business lunches here and come back raving about it each time, so when we were in the area together I told him that he could jolly well take me there, too! Service was faultlessly attentive and charming, from the very first moment. The food was gorgeous - especially my crab starter. I had a steak... More

The food was excellent and service great. The presentation of the food was very gimmicky but that does seem the way forward. I think it is defiantly somewhere to try once if you would like something different.

We could only get seats at the bar which is fine as the food choice is the same and you can still be seated. The staff were professional but not used to be friendly. Cocktails were offered, definitely have one (at about £12-15) they are great. The scallops for my starter were delicious, I normally like to have them cooked... More

There were many delightful things on the not 8 courses as advertised but 11 or 12 depending on how you counted.all the extras that turned up. Of the delights the scallops that melted in the moth and the meaty fresh and perfectly cooked turbot stand out from a... More

This was a meal with my wife to celebrate her birthday. The venue is very nice and vibrant and the food is excellent, even for someone like me who is a fussy eater!! The service again was excellent. They were there when you needed them and left you alone when you didn't. I would strongly recommend this restaurant and I... More

The tasting menu is wonderful and the atmosphere is wonderful, the staff are trained to give you the best experience. They have a separate sweet bar where you get spoiled and you get a a full view of the chefs in the kitchen because they have a glass wall between you and the kitchen.

Went with work colleagues. Atmosphere and decor is good. Food was tasty with good sized portions. But mains were pretty expensive.
