We went for lunch on a Saturday early afternoon. Fortunately we booked in advance. It was crazy busy ... for all the time we were there, there was a constant queue. Despite how busy they were, service was excellent, clearly the right amount of serving...More

We called into this very busy restaurant not really expecting a vacancy, but within minutes the six of us were seated and served. The food and service were excellent considering how busy the place was. Would thoroughly recommend it

At the most busiest time of the year service did not fail, neither did the kitchen. Chicken saltimbocca was really tasty as well as spaghetti carbonara. Waiters were frindly and quick.

It was all those things and not what you would call a relaxing experience. This is a very popular place and they ‘pack ‘em in’ so the tables are very close together with little space between them. We didn’t think the food was as good...More

With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
