Visited this restaurant before going to the Theatre and what a great find it was. We did not have a table booked but were very lucky to get one of the last tables available. The meal was really lovely and highly recommended. We will be going back.

Visited here with my wife on a Wednesday evening after being recommended it by 2 different friends. Managed to book over the phone and got the last table. This is a real authentic Italian with fresh pasta and a full gluten free pasta menu. House red wine we only £17 which is a bargain around during Covent Garden. Our bill... More

We just walked it and were completely ignored having waited for a long 5 mins in the doorway finally the waitress acknowledged us and we were rudely told to wait!! We were shunted downstairs whilst again being barked at by the staff. Mmmhhh we just walked out and no one blinked an eyelid. Customer service fail

We chose this restaurant after reading TA reviews. And although earlier in the year for what ever reason the reviews were not so good we decided to give it a go as the recent ones were very good. We were so glad we did. The welcome was warm & friendly and the food was everything we had hoped for with... More

Ate here yesterday evening post matinee, the service, selection and quality of the food were all excellent. I chose cuttlefish followed by spaghetti with clams and both were superb.

The restaurant has crisp white linen, a superb drink and food menu and lovely staff who make you feel so special. The food is fabulous and we always have a great time here which is why... More

It had been some years since I visited this restaurant, and it never leaves me disappointed. It always full or reserved, but being a solo traveller, I managed to get a small table. The drinks can raise the price a little, and there is a 10% servizio charge, which are the only reservations, but the service is always very good,... More

This place is a brilliant little restaurant,well located and unpretentious. Best to book if you're able. It offers a relatively small menu which is always very nice and is excellent value. Assume a Father/Son team doing most of the service and it works well.

Booked this based on reviews and was not disappointed - a fantastic lunch with fresh ingredients- mozzarella was the best I have ever had. Chose the special "linguini seabass" and it was divine and so fresh. Friendly staff, busy lunchtime with obvious regulars, which gives you confidence that it is reliable. Will go back.
