    This is a busy restaurant. The food was OK but nothing special. Stale bread and soggy broccoli ( which was changed) The pan a cotta was synthetic to taste. One female waitress was surly and not smiling at all whereas a young man was charming. It was an ideal location to meet friends but I wouldn’t go back.

    When we arrived they claimed not to have our booking despite receiving confirmation of this. Pizza was good. Seafood risotto was average, calamari very chewy and prawns mainly shell. Lamb cutlets undercooked and red wine sauce awful. Drinks, pudding and coffee all fine. Friendly service at table. Restaurant clean.

    The staff were very rude and snatched my credit card when I went to pay. My daughter, who’s birthday it was, asked the girl why she was so abrupt and the response was that ‘she was busy’. She was soooo obnoxious. The food was very disappointing and very expensive with a service charge added. Surely this is up to the diner to decide if the service is good or bad. We were very disappointed and it spoilt a lovely day out for us. We had travelled to London from Bournemouth. The staff need training on customer service. Very very upset and dissatisfied.

    Left feeling disappointed. Had to ask someone if we could order drinks. Food came within 5 mins of ordering, some may like this, we didn’t, felt rushed and it wasn’t worth the 4 minute wait as was very bland. Maybe if we went again we would have a different experience, but we won’t be.

    The on line booking was very simple to use as was the amending of the booking process. The staff were very polite and attentive, nothing was too much trouble for them. At the same time they were all so cheerful. The food was all excellent, very hot, and the menu was extensive. I would have no hesitation in recommending this excellent Italian restaurant and look forward to going again

    We stopped in for dinner before popping over to the theater. We had a pizza dish, a pasta dish, a salad and a prawn app. Service was quick and everything came out together. Everything was good but nothing was exceptional. It was busy so service after ordering was a bit spotty. I’d eat there again if necessary, but would not seek it out for a special occasion.
