I share the consensus view of this restaurant: it is a friendly corner of a foreign field that is for ever Tuscany, serving very high calibre food, generally devoid of ponciness. I love it. The restaurant is upstairs, there is an informal cafe downstairs, you...More

We had some excellent fish Amalfi style, highly recommended. Starter was with cheese, salumi etc and also very good. We ate downstairs in the cafe and the prices were reasonable. The service was good as well.

Marylebone offers what so many London neighborhoods
cannot: a village feel coupled with urban convenience.
Much of its success rests in its location. Wedged
between the northeastern corner of Hyde Park and the
southern end of Regent's Park and with a number of
Tube stations within easy reach, Marylebone is as
pedestrian friendly as Central London gets. The
bustling shopping mecca of Oxford Street separates it
