A very good place for a simple but quality lunch with friends. What I like is that although you could have a very grand meal, we just had two mains specials, two sides and fizzy water and two coffees and the total bill was very modest ...about £50 but served with as much polite care as if we had been spending three times as much. Bravo Edera .....your lack of pushiness is very welcome. I'll b back.

Had a very pleasant evening. Nice atmosphere, good food, service good but not intrusive. Staff friendly and receptive. Value always difficult in London, I didn't think it was overpriced. Wine suggestion was for an inexpensive and excellent bottle.

One of the best Italian meal ever. (And we have had many!) Very well prepared, well served, delightful atmosphere. We were the only Americans there at the time and we thoroughly enjoyed the Brits' conversations going on around us. (Not eavesdropping, just overhearing.)

We went to the restaurant prior to a venue at the Holland Park opera. The service was outstanding and so was the food. It was a Italian cuisine at its best. I had see bream and salad and my partner had veal limone with spinach, both dishes were delicious.

We left after 15 minutes. Restaurant was full and most people just had tap water on the table, loads of dirty dishes stacked up in the entrance are and staff pro-actively avoided to attend. No idea how this can end up with positive reviews.

Very Disappointing
Overpriced and average. Server was self important and self impressed. Clearly thinks she should be someplace else doing anything else. Usually when we read negative reviews we assume the diners are cranky or impossible to please. This was the only unsatisfying dining experience we had during our two months in London.

Major disappointment.Service the worst I have experienced.Not once did anyone come to our table to ask whether everything was O.K nor to see if we needed anything.All the attention was for regular clients.The food which was passable but small portions was just put on the table slowly and that was that. Very loud children did not help.A miserable experience.Never again when there are so many good restaurants which realise the benefits of providing good service.My opinion give this restaurant a miss.

Food was excellent, service was not terrific -- inattentive, periodic, and at least one server spoke little English so was not very helpful in taking orders or assisting. This place could be a real neighborhood gem, but the overall service needs to improve. The owner clearly favors his regulars, and did not seem very interested in new patrons. Servers also did not seem to have consistent systems of looking after specific tables and as a result the service experience was very disappointing.

Nestled in beautiful Holland Park, this lovely Italian restaurant offers a fine menu, very attentive service, and a wonderful memory regardless of the occasion. One constructive comment, they can make it less bright. Other than that, perfecto!

This was specially booked for Mothers Day, as a treat for my wife myself and our two grown up children. The restaurant is attractive in appearance both outside and inside. Our welcome was perfunctory, not even a smile, and after being served with bottled water we had ordered, we were left for around 20 minutes.

The food when it came was distictly average at best. Nothing to enthuse over. I ordered Dover sole as a main course. I realise it's expensive fish but it was tasteless and came on a small bed of brocolli; all vegetables had to be ordered as sides, which I know is common, but after paying £22 for the fish seems exorbitant. My wife's cous cous came with virtually no edible langoustine, a tiny bit of meat no larger than a small prawn; she left almost all of it, I tried it and found it totally unappetising.

We naturally didn't order dessert, but after paying the bill nobody asked if we'd enjoyed the food, asked my wife why she'd left almost all her meal or paid any attention to or interest in us, not even saying goodbye. The one saving grace was a decent bottle of wine.

A very disappointing Mother's Day outing.

Elegant old-style Italian restaurant with a long pedigree. Classy service. Dependable food.
Pleasant and low-volume background music. e.g. Sinatra. But over-priced.

Have eaten here before and the standard is still as high as ever. My sister and I both have dietary requirements which Edera always makes sure are taken care of. It is a long, long way for me to come for lunch, i.e. from Poole in Dorset but I never regret the journey.
