Went to this restaurant last night with some friends and found the staff to be very welcoming and friendly. The food was amazing and it was definitely fresh, my compliments to the chefs, a real taste of Italy! Would highly recommend this restaurant and will definitely be returning soon!

The evening began with a homie yet professional greeting at the door by sharply dressed waiters. The table was beautifully constructed alongside with gentle classical Italian music in the background, truly creating the perfect Italian dining experience. The meal began with the classical Italian dish of mixed delicatessen with pickled vegetables. The starter was neatly presented and absolutely delightful. Next was the main, the Carre Di Agnello, mouth watering lamb, roasted with rosemary with mash potato and a mint sauce gravy, it was truly scrumptious.
The taste and presentation of the meal in general was exquisite. The service accompanied the highly quality meal, as the waiters and waitresses showed great levels of communication and urgency to fulfil our needs with a playfully yet at a professional attitude. I, myself am returning customer to la Sirena and each visit proves to be better than the last, I highly recommend la Sirena as they genuinely endow the true taste of Italy..

Six of us went to a meal after a wine tasting.
We were rushed for time as some had ordered a taxi and we asked the staff to make sure we could be away on time.

My food was ok, decent whitebait although a touch dry and it needed a mayonnaise to help it down. The veal was delightful though, well cooked with a good sauce. The wine was OK, nothing special which was a shame, although the list was extensive.

My biggest issue was the inconsistency of the staff, some were attentive and happy, others were sullen. At one point we asked for a glass of water and were given one of the staffs soda water, with no real apology.

So, not bad, just not brilliant I'm afraid.
