We recently visited this restaurant for pre-theatre dinner. It was really busy and the staff did a great job of finding us a table and serving us quickly. Our food arrived quickly and was adequate for high turnover Italian style food. The kicker however was when the bill turned up - £60 for 2 bowls of pasta and 2 glasses... More

Not sure what time this place closes but got the feeling they wanted the place empty. We arrived on a Sunday night. Similar to a lot of other reviews: 1. Food very bland, not exciting and not massively warm 2. Over priced 3. Staff standing in the corner chatting and ignoring customers 4. They have to be the most miserable... More

My wife and I ate here on a Thursday. The staff were welcoming and although it was busy, they found a table for us quickly. When I asked about allergies, they made sure the food I ordered was safe. The food was good, I had sea bass and my wife had pasta, and it was tasty. The price was reasonable... More

We found this place while walking around looking for pre-theatre food and so glad we decided on this place. We visited on a really busy Saturday night and it had a really great atmosphere. The food was incredible with very decent portion sizes and the staff were very friendly. Will definitely be visiting again. We got there just in time... More

Went with my girlfriend as we were starving and other places nearby were packed. Got bruschetta for starters then waited and waited for mains. Couple who came in after us had finished their mains by the time we got ours. I asked waitress politely where our mains were, we didn't receive any answer but they came 5 minutes after. Food...

I visit this restaurant annually to meet up with a dear old friend and not once, over the years, have we been disappointed. Originally this establishment was a sandwich bar where we used to grab a hurried snack during our lunch break from work but as the years (and jobs) moved on we still meet for lunch at this restaurant....
