Was there three days ago and I found the service to be non existent and the good to be below average. 15 euro for a cold penne carbonara is ridiculas, was expecting way more as the place has a good name I won't be back .

Experienced this amazing, out of the way, hidden gem with a take away in the last week and took advantage of having a table today. The food is so flavoursome, fresh, just incredible (got to try the Bruschetta). Staff are really friendly, pricing is very reasonable and wine is also quite nice😀 Going to be a regular visitor for sure.

The restaurant was busy. No reservations taken on the first visit. Asked if I would wait 20 minutes, no problem but it was 40minites before we were shown to our table. The one by the door. The previous diners had moved and the waiting staff informed us it was a cold spot but If we wanted to have a look... More

So I asked for asparagus risotto and instead got some suspiciously red looking one.. tried a little and certainly could not taste any asparagus either.. I don't eat meat and I could taste it there.. I asked and it was - beetroot and chorizo! I said to waiter, it wasn't what I ordered and he replied like it was the... More

I have given this place countless chances because they're located so conveniently but have been let down every time. Seems they can't get large orders right. I'd get over it, but when people are waiting for their dinner to find out it is missing or just wrong, it's really embarrassing. Will not be giving them another chance to disappoint

Went for a meal to check out the new La Cucina Centro in Henry street, rang for a reservation but was told no, they only reserve for parties of 8 and up. We went on a tues night so got a table, but it is so tight in there between the tables. We practically were sitting on top of another... More

Ordered carbonara which came with penne pasta would have preferred spaghetti, but that was the least of the issues there must have been a shortage on the panchetta as I only found 2 pieces and no offer extra Parma. Service was very good from the staff and they were a credit. The queuing system is a disaster and would want... More
