Excellent value breakfast

Spotted the menu board whlist in House of Fraser during a weekend break in the city and thought the breakfast menu looked good value so decided to give it a go the following morning. Turned up about 11:15 and it was packed which we took to be a very good sign. We were greeted soon after entering... read more

4 years after my first visit of th eoriginal cicchetti (which led me to become a regular diner at Cicchetti in London) I was very disappointed when I returned to what is effectively a grubby and shabby poor cousin. What happened here? This place has got nothing on the London equivalent anymore. I did not stay and went across the... More

I used to think of this as the swift bite San Carlos but think it is now a better restaurant than the main offer opposite. Good attentive staff and a great menu and wine list. watty

Me and my husband have been here for our wedding anniversary. I simply felt like at home. We are Italian and we know the proper Italian quality of food. Our dinner was simply perfect. Tagliatelle al ragù bolognese and Lasagne were perfect, reminded me my mum's ones. Wine was beautiful and also desserts. Service quite good and staff very friendly... More

I have visited this restaurant numerous times and never once reviewed it. I thought I'd give it a quick review as it definitely deserves one. I had the choice between San Carlo or San Carlo Cicchetti, we decided to go for the latter, and what a great choice it was. It was lunch time on a Saturday and we picked... More

Had a late breakfast of scrambled eggs and smoked salmon and can't fault the food. service was erratic but entertaining. Our order seemed to have disappeared into the ether and then one serving arrived but the second serving arrived quickly. Our bill then only included one meal for which he maitre d' was most apologetic. During our wait the waiters... More

Had lunch for the second time last week and as we were preoccupied I only thought we had been overcharged when we got home. Only having the debit card receipt I could not check so emailed the manager. No response at all! My conclusions are that we may have been overcharged by a tenner - or if we weren't then... More
