“Awesome selection...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2011

An awe inspiring selection of wines, truly breathtaking. A little bit clinical in terms of atmosphere but a must see for any wine buffs nonetheless!

“Wow!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2011 via mobile

Recommended by friend to go we absolutely loved this bottle shop. The variety and selections were amazing!! You can sample some lovely wine and buy a bottle and rake it upstairs to restaurant to drink for no extra charge!

“Brilliant place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2008

This place is so amazing, I saw wines I've only read about and that you can't even get in my favourite London shop, Berry Bros & Rudd, which is btw excellent.

Didn't try the wine tasting place or the lunch restaurant, this review is only for the shop, our experience there was very good, got helpful and knowledgeable service, but not pushy.

Looking forward to visiting there again, in my trip to Paris, this spring.

“Get there on time!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2005

My first memories of Lavinia is that it is very well laid out and very informative.......however if the wine bar is your place of interest then don't expect miracles.......;it's a nice space with great wines by the glass, but the service is just adequate, the welcome is average and it's a little impersonal.

Go, choose your wine and eat.........don't get there too late cause they don't want to serve you in the half hour before closing at 20.00

Good luck!!!!
