You get much food for your money, they recommend that you share a starter because they’re pretty big. I went for just a main and it filled me up. And I was hungry. Recommended!

Arrived at 7pm on Wed night looking for table for 3 and told 40 minutes but left after 1hr 30 mins waiting at bar. Terrible table management - customers waiting for tables but no turnover. People just sitting there for hours. Not going there again.

Amazing place, the decor is gorgeous. Open from 5pm to 10pm, the place is always bustling. Food is great, locally sourced and organic where possible it seems. Food menu is limited, but excellent.

One of the finest Italian meals I've ever had. I dined with one other person and we both thoroughly enjoyed our food and wine. They don't do reservations but they worked quickly to find us a table as we ordered drinks at the bar. The...More
