Great food spoiled by 'Quandoo'

Food was great and much improved on recent years. The service was quick and attentive. But booked online and now being spammed by Quandoo online booking systems. Don't book online for this restaurant unless you love spam

We have eaten here three times in the last 6 months and I have really enjoyed it on each occasion. The Italian food is a cut above the high street Italian chains with some more interesting dishes on offer. The food always tastes freshly prepared using high quality ingredients, some of which are made on site. The location, restaurant and... More

We dropped in here on spec and found a table sitting on the terrace (the one evening in England when it was warm enough to eat outside!) Service was quick and friendly. Food was standard Italian fare. We shared a focaccia to start, we were charged £1 for a balsamic vinegar/olive oil dip which seemed a little excessive, main courses... More

I recently had the pleasure of having a meal at this restaurant with friends and family, for a birthday celebration. The food was excellent and the service exemplary. A special thanks to our waiter, Mati, who made sure the evening was a great success.

I visited 3rd Junew with two friends and ordered the ravioli with peas and ricotta. It was practically inedible, The pasta was tough and more like cardboard, filled with mashed peas - not much sign of ricotta. The wine was very rough too. I asked for very pale rose - it would have been better to say they had none.... More

We visited the restaurant in Summertown on a Sunday afternoon. The waiter looked like he had a hang over and was very impatient in taking our order. My wife ordered the Spigola con Capperi. The fish had many bones, the potatoes were hard boiled and uncooked and the spinach just looked stale and out of date. The starters and main... More

Dear Naeem, Welcome to Tripadvisor. You have chosen to debut by giving us a 1* review on account of your dislike of our waiter’s physical appearance, undercooked potatoes and a seabass, which had too many bones for you. You say it left you with a bad palate, not improved by any of the other dishes you consumed while you were... More

I visited this restaurant with family on Tuesday 2nd of June 2015 @ 2.30. The restaurant and tables were very clean and well laid out. The décor was modern and comfortable. It was not very busy and I think that we were there at the end of the usual lunch period. The staff were courteous and appropriately pleasant. The service... More
