I looked up trip advisor before booking a meal out with friends as we wanted somewhere in Merchant City and I wanted to try somewhere I hadn't been before. I am glad I looked at the reviews, they were all good and it was worth the visit.
The idea of the Italian tapas was good. The only thing I would say is that if I hadn't read the reviews here then I probably wouldn't have understood what was going on when I got there. There is nothing on the menu to really explain the idea or to give an indication of how many plates to order. The staff didn't explain this either (I'm sure they would have if we had asked them to, but might be nice to offer the explanation on arrival, or is that a bit too Nando's..?).
Luckily I had read about it here, so explained to my friends and we ordered 7 or 8 plates between the three of us which gave us a good variety but plenty (perhaps a little too much) to eat, and there were leftovers.
Still, after being stuffed we did manage to squeeze in a dessert and we were glad we did!
All in all, the food was pretty good, the waitresses nice enough and the interior was great - I really like what they've done with the place. We were sitting in a booth which was good. The small plates idea is good, it's a bit different but the option is there to have a normal, large plate of pasta etc if you so wish.
