A couple of weeks ago we had a great lunch at this restaurant's little sister over the road. Now for a return visit. A really great dinner. I loved the English breakfast/quail starter and the Dover sole main was sublime. I still dream about the peanut butter dessert I had here several years ago but unfortunately it isn't on the... More

We were rcommended to this restaurant by friends as a good place for lunch and they were absolutely right. By 1,00pm it was buzzing and we were glad we had booked for an earlier time. Service was very professional and the set lunch menu was just to our tase. We explained to the charming sommelier that while we were very... More

Booked for lunch fairly last minute. Set lunch was great and fantastic value. Good wines by the glass too. Little loud perhaps.

One of the wonderful things about London fine dining restaurants is their outstanding service - its discreet, polished and very proper. Having said that, this spot takes an extra leap by serving some of the best Italian meals I've had in my life. The dining room is stylishly decorated.

My husband has had several business lunches here and come back raving about it each time, so when we were in the area together I told him that he could jolly well take me there, too! Service was faultlessly attentive and charming, from the very first moment. The food was gorgeous - especially my crab starter. I had a steak... More

The food was excellent and service great. The presentation of the food was very gimmicky but that does seem the way forward. I think it is defiantly somewhere to try once if you would like something different.

We could only get seats at the bar which is fine as the food choice is the same and you can still be seated. The staff were professional but not used to be friendly. Cocktails were offered, definitely have one (at about £12-15) they are great. The scallops for my starter were delicious, I normally like to have them cooked... More
