“Average food but very good host”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

My wife had veal - a little tough. I had lasagne - more cheese than meat. However as we only had 40 minutes for the meal it was served without a long wait. Franco however was a very good host.

“Lovely authentic tasting food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013 via mobile

Pre-theatre lunch, great service and flavourful pasta dishes. Very generous portions and great value for money particularly for the area. Only downside waiter who was charming asked for tip in cash even though service charge was included and that is the only reason i did not give this restaurant 5 stars as it made us feel a little uncomfortable.

“A good average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

It's handy for theatreland, and they do a special lunch menu. It was very quiet when we went for lunch before a matinee. The staff are friendly, the prices not bad for this part of London, the food is ok - we've had much better, we've had much worse. Bit of confusion because we ordered wine then realised some came with the special lunch menu - don't think they made an allowance on the bill, AND they add on the service charge automatically, one of my particular gripes.

“Friendly, family run, good food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Ideally situated if you are wanting a meal before or after a show. There seemed to be ample friendly staff, presided over by Franco whose zabaglione will almost certainly lure my wife back there again. Food was decent enough if West End pricey, although my lamb had been trimmed a bit too much for my liking, a bit more fat left on it would have made it more succulent.
