The restaurant boasts classic, chic decor, and a consistently warm Mediterranean ambience which draws diners back time and time again.

Return visit after a number of years to find the food excellent (white asparagus with poached egg, veal sweetbreads and lobster spaghetti particularly good and with good portions) and the service attentive and pleasant. However, the prices are too high, and the wine list in particular needs to be more sensibly priced.

My favorite restaurant when in London, I pay always a visit to it and must say that along the years it got even better. Lovely place with a great set up and tables for all possible number of diners. Service extremely attentive and food cooked in a perfect way. We had asparagus with egg, red prawns carpaccio, tagliolini all’astice and ravioli with fish sauce, great Sardinian wine and superb pistacchio semifreddo. Impressive the quality and the taste. Certainly not an inexpensive restaurant though.

We had the set lunch menu. I had 3 courses and the food was exquisite - particularly the cheesecake with cherry ice cream. The service was unparalleled and the restaurant was quiet enough to have a successful business lunch without being too quiet.

I visited this restaurant recently, I remembered it as being very good and extremely popular, a restaurant that was difficult to get a booking. A few years ago I attended a party in the private room that was fantastic but my recent visit makes me think it has changed hands, the food was not well cooked and both the food and the wine was ridiculously overpriced. £400 for lunch for three with one bottle of wine!
