Booked this restaurant as my daughter is a big fan of Italian food. Very disappointed.
Food is below average. Raw fish is not fresh. Dessert is like bought from supermarket. Wine is over priced and we were given the wrong wine. Service is below average. Overall a bad experience.

Lunch was pleasant but nothing special for the price. Wine was ridiculously overpriced. Room was very noisy. Coffee cup was only half full. 13.5 % service charge added made half a cup of Americano £5. There was a pillar between guests at the table. Overall we were very disappointed and we will not return.

The restaurant has great ambiance and the food was tasty. However, even taking into account the prime time Mayfair location and price premium you expect, I still felt a little stung paying over £50 for 2 courses off the set menu and a normal glass of red. The starter was prawn and courgette tempura and a vegetarian pizza, which I have no compliants about but hardly elaborate or could be classified as expensive cuts. Therefore on value I have scored the restaurant down.

A very modern restaurant with modern decoration, food and ideas. The staff are all very polite and friendly. The food tastes great and the portion size is very good. The set menu is best value. The restaurant is a little pricey but you got to expect that being in Mayfair. The restaurant plays up tempo music, doesnt fit with the ambience and setting in my opinion. Its loud enough to hear but wont drown out the conversation. Biggest negative is that the courses come out literally one after the other and you feel rushed out the door. All in all though a very nice meal and would go back

Hugely expensive wine list. One of our orders was taken wrong but rather than take all the food back they left one person eating alone and the vegetables on the table to be cold when the correct food finally came out. Shame as a lovely restaurant - does explain why it was so empty though!

The atmosphere of this restaurant is very refined and you can tell the food is prepared very meticulously with very fresh ingredients. Felt a little pricey all things considered but still enjoyed the dining experience. Staff were lovely and considerate throughout.

One of the worst dinners I had recently! We had the autumn festival menu and it was by far the worst menu I tried during this season, ridiculously overpriced for what it was: boiled beetroot with a sprinkle of goats cheese (no special seasoning) plus a tiny piece of badly cooked fish.
On top, they charged 7£ for bread. Will never go there again.

Perfect meal with a colleague. We tried the Rosemary Focaccia, and Burrata for starters. And had grilled shrimp and Dover Sole for mains. Everything was amazing.

Set out well, we expected a lot from previous reviews, the reality was quite different. The food is at best very average, but very expensive. The wine list is good but you will pay £20 for a small average wine. We wanted a nice easy Italian so had 2 pizza and a Tuna steak. Pizza were very average and under cooked, Tuna steak, cold and not cooked how it was requested. Best part of the meal, a chocolate fondant, actually worth the 15 min wait. So to sum up 2x poor pizza, 1x cold Tuna steak, a chocolate fondant, 2x coffee , 2 x small glasses of wine and a bottle of water= £200.. poor experience, won't be going back, good looking place let down by its food.MUST TRY HARDER.

This is the most expensive meal I have ever eaten in an Italian restaurant. £60 for a bowl of tagliatelle, it was a special but they never told us the price. All other pasta dishes on the menu were about £20. Have eaten there many times but will never go again and will advise anyone I know never to go there. Absolute ripoff.

Nice venue and we were given a great table however the food was very disappointing. We ordered pizzas, both were bland and tasteless. We asked for salt and pepper - there was none on our table - and chilli oil to enhance the pizzas. Unfortunately the chilli oil had about as much kick as a legless centipede. I’ve heard good things about this restaurant and hope that this was an off day for them. Won’t order pizza there again but would go back to give them a second chance.

Fine quality Italian food in a lively, upscale setting. Excellent service. But how on earth can they justify charging £7 for bread? It's a sneaky move that must leave many otherwise satisfied customers feeling ripped off.

Good service. Pasta (both lobster and boar dishes) were well cooked and flavourful. "Focaccia" was actually just pizza base. Nice interior let down by music that was 90s pop(?) and irritating. Lamb secondo was very average. Ricky Gervais and wife, and Will Arnett, were at the next table so we could barely hear ourselves over their "stage presence" personalities. Overall meh.

Food was good quality, but not really impressive for the price. Service was excellent, the waiting staff were really attentive and friendly. The only thing I wasn't really happy was the music that didn't match the atmosphere of the restaurant at all would expect for calm music rather than a mix of pop mix.
