When we arrived I thought that they had mistaken us for some sort of dignitaries! (which we aren't) -- the Maitre D' greeted us with a glass of Champagne and took us directly to an excellent table --

The server named Alba --took it from there -- getting my Grey Goose Gimlet and a Grey Goose Cosmos for my wife while we were still studying the menu

Alba described the offerings pointing out that the Tapas menu selecting 4 or 5 different items would be a great way to go -- so we had the Duck Salad ; Tuna Tartare (seasoned and formed by Alba at table side) Chicken wrapped in prosciutto and Black ravioli filled with crab and brown shrimp sauce - all to die for!

Then we had dessert it to was scrumptious -- but you need to select your own without my help!

Again -- we would eat there every week if we lived there -- but we do not live in London -- but this would be a reason to go back to London !

An interesting concept. Italian food in small portions to eat tapas style; sharing plates. A good choice of food and wine. Good staff.

This was quite a lovely lunch before going to a theatre matinee.
The service was fantastic - and the food really tasty. We chose the Menu Fisso - this gave four small plates of food for £15.95 per person. We had a risotto (although the option on the menu wasn't suitable for my husband - so they changed it without a fuss), Sea bass (amazing), rib-eye of beef (wonderful) and marinated vegetables.
It was a lovely meal and great service. Highly recommended.

Recommended by Intercontinental Park Lane concierge. We had a great dinner & service at the bar. Mattia, manager, took fabulous care of us & made great suggestions. We started with kettle one martinis and calamari, followed by caprese salad. We split last nights special which was black ravioli stuffed with crab in red marinara sauce. Loved it, so we split another pasta with mushrooms & truffle oil. Ended with tiramisu. Everything was great!! Perfectly cooked & plated. Mattia talked to us & really takes interest in his customers. We will return the next time we are in London.

This is the second time that we came here, and it was so different to our previous experience! We were really looking forward to this but the food didn't meet our expectations at all. We had buffalo ricotta, spaghetti cacio e pepe, tempura prawns, veal, a seafood platter and arancini, and the only dish we really liked was the spaghetti. The seafood platter was awful - very overcooked - but they removed this from our bill which was very kind. Last time we visited, it wasn't as busy whereas it was packed this time, and I think that impacted the food.

The main reason why I'm giving three stars instead of one is the service. The service is very very good and a lot of restaurants could learn from this.
