I know it's classed as a chain but I love this place after a wander around Coventry Garden.

The signature dish is so wonderful and simple you just can't go wrong and the 50p to charity thus far giving over £800,000 shows how popular it is!

I love the deli shop too and rarely walk out without something!

As group of 10 of both kids and adults, we ate early evening dinner here on a Saturday. We'd booked in advance which was just as well because they were queueing out of the door. We were seated on the first floor in a fairly small room. The set up is that there are several rooms to eat in and a deli shop on the ground floor. There's a lively ambience and we had the same waiter throughout who was very attentive. The food was good, although fairly pricey. The real bonus was the full and varied gluten free menu available. We really enjoyed the evening, felt relaxed, and weren't rushed to leave at all. Great location. Would definitely go back.

went to this restaurant on 1st feb 2013. had booked for 1pm but my colleague had train problems and I had to change the booking an hour or so before. The restaurant was very understanding and changed the time without hesitation.
the food was very good - I had steak, cooked perfectly Rare (many restaurants overcook this, believing the customer wants it burnt!!), my colleague had pasta, which he said was excellent.
would go again, but it pays to book as I have tried getting in at 5pm before on 2 occasions to be told there is a wait.

My fiance and I came here the night we'd got engaged. We told the waitress but we didnt get a free glass of wine/ starter which I suppose people do try their luck but it was disappointing. For my main I had carbonara which was disgusting it was so salty that I couldn't eat it. I didnt tell my fiance as I didnt want to upset him on our special night but it was a horrible meal.

Went here last week with a friend and had a lovely meal. Great value on their 2 for 1 offer and they have a seperate Gluten Free menu which is fantastic. So nice to be able to have authentic italian pasta dishes again that are wheat free - shame they don't do Gluten Free Pizza :-(

Service was good and the restaurant has a lovely atmosphere. Would definitely go again.
