“Classic style and great atmosphere but expensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

You should choose this place for its prime location and for the atmosphere. Both on the tables or on the counter it's a mix of business people, beatiful women and few tourists.
The service is ok and the food is very good. The portions are quite big.
It's a bit overpriced, but you pay the location and how busy the place is.

“Go elsewhere”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

To be perfectly honest the food was fablous, as good as the food was, that is how BAD the service was. Old, established, well known reputation so I am guessing they can rest on that.
So many other good Italian food establishmnets in the area, go elsewhere!

“Over priced, snooty service, appalling food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

I went today for brunch with my husband. For £13 I got one tiny sausage, three shrivelled inedible pieces of bacon, one piece of tepid toast that was so hard it was impossible to eat, two poached eggs that were cooked far too long - both the yolks were hard - and two overcooked slices apiece of tomato and mushroom. On top of this the service was awful - arrogant, unhelpful, and they didn't listen to our requests. I went here some years ago and found the place delightful. But it has seriously gone downhill since then. Next time I want a good breakfast, I'll visit my local cafe - £4.75 for a full cooked breakfast, with friendly service plus runny yolks!

“Lively, buzzy, classy and great food - ££”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

Spent a day in London and visited Royal Acadamy and their Gallery at the back - 6.30 long day saw this place immediately opposite -2 glasses of wine (both excellent - good range) and a couple of their starter plates - stunning £30 - sounds a lot perhaps - well worth it
Staff very helpful
Will be going back ASAP - really good fun, lively and "a smart classy crowd"
Hard to beleive that Irina F was at the same place.

Will be checking out their lunch menu.

“Upscale atmosphere & crowd... great spot after day of shopping in London!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

We stumbled upon this spot near Bond Street and ended up enjoying a nice aperitif (happy hour) here. The bartender was so welcoming. The crowd was upscale, unlike some of the other "hip" spots around London. We ordered a steak carpaccio that was delicious.
I would definitely visit again for dinner or lunch. Service was very good at the bar.
