without a doubt, worst pasta I ever eaten! I ordered "Linguini pasta with Atlantic salmon, braised leek, capers, baby spinach and olive oil", some pieces of salmon were overcooked, definitely the pasta tasted of white wine. Probably the wine wasn't reduced at all... I couldn't taste any flavour in that dish. The service was good and friendly. Food not good enough and expensive...

We went to Cicciolina on a Saturday night - arrived at around 6:45pm and were seated within 45 minutes. They don't take bookings at night, but you can put your name down and enjoy a drink and nibbles at the bar while you wait.

The staff are extremely professional and friendly, and considering how busy the restaurant always is, the wait for service and food is acceptable. For a main I had an eye fillet steak and this was cooked perfectly rare! Delicious food - everyone was happy with their food, beautifully cooked and presented.

It was a very unrushed and relaxed night, we thoroughly enjoyed it and will definitely go back. Good value and a great buzz.

The menu had a good mix of things, many of which I had not tried before. The food was of excellent quality. The wine was nice and the service was great. Overall a nice restaurant.

I loved this cafe. Quirky menu that was cooked and presented very well. Good wine list that has some unusual wines from around the world. Excellent service from waiting staff that knew their stuff.
