Came here for Easter brunch with my three teenage children. The food was amazing. There were so many delicious choices. They were able to accommodate my son’s nut allergy with no problems. The service was excellent; beginning with the host as soon as we walked in.

We were really impressed with the freshness and taste of the good. We particularly liked the Octopus salad.
Margherita, our waitress was exceptionally attentive and remembered all our various changes of choice in the menu!!
Big thank you to the restaurant for a particularly fun filled evening.

Average food and service. The place takes both table cover charge and service charge, which results in 20% in the bill. We have received a wrong bill with our food + some other dishes from the menu. Waiter said "Yes, it is not your bill" and did not even say sorry. Then we were suggested coats that were not ours twice.

Overall average food at a quite high price. Service needs improvement.

Fantastic service and ambience. Great cocktails. Food is pretty good (not incredible like you'd hope for the money) and it is way overpriced.

Very posh, beautiful ambiance, great for wealthy Ladies who lunch!! A full plate of pasta (that was excellent by the way) for 18 quid is a tad excessive in my view particularly given the quantities served. Service was very good and friendly.

We waited more that an hour for your food because the boiler was broken . We didn’t get any compensation for the disagreement. They didn’t even offer any food while we were waiting. We overpaid for very poor quality food and the restaurant was extremely noisy.
Extremely disappointed.

Pasta was cold when arrived to the table and was a very small portion after being claimed to be the large size. Charged us the service fees when nothing was eaten from what was provided, and wasn’t asked if we wanted anything.

Food was bland under seasoned and overpriced . Sea bass over cooked .Caponata tasteless , not agrodulce River cafe prices for average high street trattoria cooking.
Ice cream had ice crystals , inedible ( Taken off our bill )
Waitresses friendly but inefficient, Did not appear to work in sections , so asked three different waitresses for water before any appeared .
Cover charge added to bill , really ? when it is £20 for a bowl of pasta .
Wine list very overpriced , no medium priced wine.
Bench seat broke at the end of the meal.

Very nice restaurant with friendly staff. The food is really good: very simple receipes (cacio e pepe / bolognese / burrata etc) but very tasty! Perhaps a bit pricy for Italian food though. All together a great evening, we will defitively go back!

The wait staff was the most inattentive I’ve ever experienced. No one specific was assigned to our table. We had to flag down anyone willing to help us anytime we needed anything. My pasta arrived cold. We asked for the dessert menu and it was never brought to us. We finally just gave up and asked for the bill. Very disappointed with my experience.

Fantastic service, knowledgeable staff with a friendly approach. Overall we enjoyed the evening although we wanted to share that the dinner plates where cold which meant the pasta dish was Al dente when served which is never good when you pay £31.50 for a dish. The restaurant also has a good selection of wines but we discussed that it would be good to have a few more options around £35-£45.

Asked 3 times for a wine menu. Cheapest wine £36 a bottle. OK. So we're in a 'foodie' joint. So great food then? Well, yes, when it arrived. The waiter took down my order wrong. So my two colleagues were served and I waited...and waited...it was only sea bass - takes five minutes. The aubergine accompaniment wold have been pre-made. And I waited. My colleagues were nearly finished by the time my food arrived. We also ordered a side of chips for the table. These didn't materialise - we let them know that we din't want them anymore - they decided to serve them then. The waiter did not/could not 'listen' to his customers. It wasn't a noisy place. There was only one other table being served. I can see why now. Steer clear. An absolute rip-off. No style. No class. Just a rip off.

We were there today, Sunday 17 November, for brunch and it was auwful. The eggs benedict has little flavour and the avocado was inedible. And the maitre‘ d was very impertinent (I think he might have been unaware of how inappropriate he was) told me there was nothing wrong with it and we would have to agree to disagree!
Alas, I will never recommend this restaurant
