Four of us booked for sunday lunch a few days ahead when were told we had just taken the last table - always a good sign! We had been warned that we would be in a corner but the table was fine and we noted all the tables were nicely spaced. We were greeted warmly by a charming waitress, shown to our table and handed bothe a la carte and set menus. Our wine was delivered promptly and fesh bread, butter and bread sticks arrived.
Choosing from the set menu we started with the tiger prawns with ginger and spring onion in a white wine dressing and insalata tricolore, both delicious and generous portions. To follow I was torn between the veal, calves liver and sea bass - eventually opting for the slow roasted shank of lamb. The fourth member of our group went for the salmon in a prosseco sauce. Both excellent and came with a choice of potatoes and vegetables served at the table - a nice touch.
The traditional dessert trolley was packed with a delicious choice of sweets but we all were too full and just managed some very good italian coffee.
The wine was good value particularly the Sicilian red which was very good and a nice light Frascati.
For the four of us, including 2 bottles of wine, the bill came to £120 which also included the optional 10% service charge. I felt this represented extremely good value!
The service was perfect, plenty of staff, unhurried with a nice pause between starter and main course. The dining room is comfortable with white linen and has a pleasant feel to it. There is a small bar area and a patio at the rear.The staff are smartly dressed in black and white and are professional and friendly.
All in all a first class Italian restaurant and we will certainly be back.
