This restaurant lives on its reputation, as the endless photos of film stars and directors on the walls and plasma screen remind you. However, though the food was pretty good - I especially recommend the carpaccio of octopus, which was unusual and delicious, and the artichoke ravioli - the attitude was less than welcoming and we were given a small table for four at the back when there were much better tables available. You really felt like a number in a high numbers game, as this is a very popular restaurant - pack 'em in and send 'em out again. There was no 'courtesy' bruschetta or dessert wine on the house as elsewhere and no great sense of hospitality of any kind. The waitresses were preening and self-interested - the worst and most indifferent in town, when service in other restaurants was top-notch. Worth a one-off visit perhaps to stare at the photos, but I expected better. The OTT silly plates say it all.
