Visited a few weeks ago for lunch, enticed by their advertised lunch offer and after having hear many great things from friends and colleagues about the restaurant and food. We were greeted and seated nicely but then (it felt) basically ignored. We were eventually given the a la carte menu and had to ask for the offer menu. As it... More

Made a reservation for 6 as my graduation celebration dinner with my family. Parking was easy and free on a weekday evening. The place was bustling and busy when we arrived, but we were promptly seated at a nicely set table. The menu is extensive and provides tons of options! We had a hard time deciding but eventually managed to... More

We visit this restaurant as much as we possibly can, as distance is an issue for us, however everytime we can make it, we love every minute! We hadn't even booked, which was really bad of us, however we hoped that the manager would help us out with a table, which the manager professionally did. We were so grateful. Food... More

Having come as a large party and prebooked our food it was a complete cock up -. when we then had to start from scratch and reorder our starters and main courses. Even then some of the main courses took so long to come the first to be served has almost finished by the time the last arrived. The waitress... More

Popped in on a Tuesday night, no reservation, treated really well by the excellent waitress. Shared a sardine starter (really clever use of capers), Parpardelle Bolognese and Crab Linguine, both really delicious, 3 glasses of house wine, decent dessert to share,£45. Spotlessly clean restaurant and toilets, good staff, nice modern Italian but the food properly and sensibly in touch with... More

I had a quite good pizza and my colleague a great steak. To be honest the mozzarella cheese was not really first quality, but the general flavor was pretty good. The service is good and some of them are really Italian.

I booked this restaurant for a large group from work. Karim couldn't have been any more helpful if he had tried. Nothing was too much trouble with seating arrangements, special diets etc. The food was fabulous too. Would recommend this place if you are in the Jewellery Quarter.
