Eat here every time I go to London. Very reasonable prices and no service charge which is good for London. Ate the squid,bruschetta and spicy chicken for starter all great and the seafood risotto and t bone steak for mains again always the same high standards. Went on a Monday and very busy but this did not affect service.

Our colleague had made a reservation as we went there with an entire group of 30. The staff was active, alert n professional and had eye to everyone's need. I had nice tomato soup and smoked Salmon. For majority of the diners the portion were sufficient however the colleague next to me felt the food was less in quantity. They... More

A group of us went here for a celebration after completing a course. The food was delicious and not one of us was unhappy with our meals. The wine was lovely, however, we didn't pay much attention to the prices and ended up paying much more for a bottle of pinot Grigio than we expected. Other than that, especially as... More

We found this place on TripAdvisor and thought we'd give it a go. What a find! First off, very family friendly although it looks quite formal initially. The staff couldn't have been friendlier (obviously a true Italian restaurant where children just aren't an issue). The menu is varied. Food arrived quickly and was excellent. No children's menu but anything can... More

Starter of caprese salad was good but needed more salt. Excellent seafood pasta, big portion too. Really good value for money with 50% off food via an opentable offer, would recommend!

Visited this restaurant to celebrate a friends 60 birthday. The staff were extremely attentive and efficient. We ordered differently but each course was excellent. My friend ordered veal milanese, the portion was huge and succulent. The staff were also very accommodation with us producing our own celebration birthday cake. The menu is extremely fairly priced for London and would definitely... More
