Very good

Interesting food, very good service and an excellent setting. Maybe a little "nouvelle" for some tastes/appetites and a bit pricey. Special occasions only for me.

Excellent food, very good service and the Champagne was perfect! My wife and I celebrated our anniversary with lunch from the a la carte menu and was not disappointed. Will definitely return with friends and family.

However, the photographs of celebrities who have visited all over the wall looks tacky. Also the furniture piled on top of a fridge at the back of the bar looked poor. The... More

Went there with colleagues for dinner as a guest. Obviously very popular but really quite underwhelming experience. Service was very slow and staff were generally disinterested. Food, when it arrived, was luke warm and OK but nothing to write home about. For the price you would certainly expect better. At the time of writing this restaurant is rated 200th in... More

We have called here several time, and tried to book a table, but they are always full. We have been in for drinks it I'd a fabulous building and looks great. I think you need to book a table weeks in advance.

Bustling atmosphere on a busy Saturday night. The service was perfect and the food flawless as always. This is a classic, busy Italian with wonderful waiters rushing around but providing great service. It's not too formal but still feels special. The building itself is beautiful and only adds to the ambiance.
