Went here based on ratings and location. Pleasantly surprised by special truffle menu. Had the Carpaccio with shaved truffle for appetizer and Truffle Risotto. Both were excellent with generous portions of truffle. Service was friendly. Would definitely recommend.

My girlfriend and I came for dinner on a Friday night, it was busy but not full. We opted to sit inside, though there is outside seating with spectacular views of tower bridge. Service was very prompt and was throughout the night. For starters we had Beef Carpaccio and Burrata Tomato Salad. It wasn’t the best Carpaccio I’ve ever had, but it was very good, the Burrata was out of this world and amazingly creamy, perfect. For main I had the Pappardelle with Wild Boar Ragout, my girlfriend had Spicy Nduja Sausage Penne (gluten free). All the pasta was fresh and home made, and the mains were delicious. During our time there we got chatting to a very nice man serving us named Fabio, who turned out to be the general manager. It came up in conversation that he had helped cook many thousands of portions of lasagne for the homeless in recent years, bravo Fabio! For desert we had a panna cotta which was nice, my girlfriend also had an amazing Irish coffee. Overall we had a great evening, and would come again.
