The food was very good, but the staff had a rude and demeaning attitude. A poor and rude "joke" from a member of the staff ruined our night and we just felt like leaving.

I'm possibly going to sound a bit harsh here but as a former chef sometimes I find what others rave about can be a tad uninspiring to me.

So the good...

Lovely location in a quiet, leafy street.

Great staff - very friendly, attentive, multi-lingual, and EXTREMELY pleasant.

Great decor - very simplistic lines with a lovely uncluttered feel. Nothing jars the sense of the aesthetic, everything is subtle and tasteful.

Willingness - if it ain't on the menu just ask, so we did and they came up with the goods.

And the not so good?

The menu was a bit limited. But then in their defence - like I have already said, "if it ain't on the menu just ask". Our request was for a relatively simple side salad but I wonder what might have been the reply had I asked for say vongole.

A little bit pricey - but not at all excessive, especially in such a relatively high class area.

I think the pasta was home made and my wife felt her dish, sometimes known as "silk handerchiefs".was a little on the thick side.

All our dishes were just a bit too salty.

So... I hope my criticism isn't too unfair. The food was very nice and in view of the willingness to cater "off the menu" I think perhaps a few more choices "on the card" might be a good idea instead of the current limits. I suspect that some of the dishes will be stunning however I can only go off the two starters + two mains we tried.
