Food was generally good & well presented.The only quibbles were: The two courses came almost too quickly & we were in out within an hour.Not the leisurely, romantic night we expected! The ambient light caused us to use the lights on our mobiles to read the menus,as were other guests.Maybe small table lamps would have helped! The... More

Went for a friends birthday booked in advance. Food was very good service very good. The only thing I would say I asked for a sweet wine and wasn't to sure about the wine we were given. Also the fact we had to have food within a time limit as they needed the table back at a certain time.

Visited OGGI with girl friends for dinner. None of us were disappointed. The restaurant is very inviting, exceptionally clean and staff are friendly and knowledgable about all items on the menu. Service was great we weren't rushed to leave and both wine and food were fabulous. Personally I love Tiramisu and this was ultimately why I choose to eat at... More

My only criticism of Oggi is the staff lack order seemed they were up and down without any purpose. All in all we had a... More

No Parmesan offered for the pasta, no checks that the food was ok or if they could do anything else for us, nothing. food was average. We were here... More
