“Family party”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

This is a stylish place, greeted by a beautiful M D, and then a private party. My sister in law's 50th and her father in law's 85th. 30 of us were exceptionally looked after, and the wine and food flowed, served by consummate staff who took a real pride. Yes we will return.

“Consistently delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

We have been here several times and have never been disappointed. The food is always outstanding, and we are always pleased with the service as well. We will go back again and again, it's an absolute delight. I think this may actually be the best Italian restaurant in London, in my opinion.

“great food, service left us confused”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

Ate here on a Thursday evening. I had been wanting to try this place for a long time. I have to say the food was great. Firstly breads were light and well flavoured and seasoned. I chose the four course menu my gf the 3 course I ate 3 dishes from the pasta menu which were all delicious in their own right the best for me the pig cheek. My gf is still talking about the mushroom pasta starter. My dessert was one of the most simple i have eaten pink grapefruit sorbet with basil sugar which after 3 bowls of pasta was perfect. The only complaint we have is we noticed tables getting special treatment we were in the smaller of two dining rooms. And noticed that people who were eating from the same menu as us were getting extra courses that we didn't receive and generally being treated better. The only attention we were getting was the water mafia coming to our table and pouring water every 30 seconds.

“Best Italian Restaraunt in London”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

Have been many times and never been disappointed. Always great. Usually has several specials as well as a great menu. Wine list is a little hit or miss. One challenge is a bit cramped, but typical for most London west end restaraunts.
