We dined here for lunch with a group of friends who were going to a play directly across the road at the Theatre Royal.
The restaurant is Italian but offers two options - either full size dishes per course as normal or 'tapas' style small dishes which allows you to have a greater selection of tastes from the menu. We chose the latter and agreed to the recommendation from the very helpful waiter that we allow at least 3 dishes per person, initially this may sound expensive but in reality they only cost around £4 each so the total bill is not that large.
Only one of the 30 dishes we sampled was disappointing (the Italian sausages seemed to be fatty) and we found the whole experence to be very different, I think it is an idea which other restaurants could try especially at lunchtime when you do ot want a particularly heavy meal.
The wine was very reasonably priced (e.g. £21 for a very good Montepulciano and £19 for a Pinot Grigio).
It became very busy after we arrived so I waould strongly recommend booking in advance. Overall impressions were - great staff, good food at a reasonable price and a novel way of sampling a wide range of diffferent dishes. I will certainly return.
