    Unfortunately we had a very disappointing evening. The first course arrived quickly and was tasty. The main course took over an hour to arrive, and of the 4 of us, two had to return our meals (first time I’ve ever done that) the replacement meal took at least another 20 minutes to arrive despite numerous apologies from the management. It was nearly 2 hours after our arrival at the restaurant that 2 of us were eating our meal and a long time after our companions had finished.

    Three of us went for dinner on a Friday night. Had starters, main, and dessert all of which were very tasty. The staff was very helpful, and friendly. We also ordered a bottle of wine and sparkling water. The cost was reasonable for the food and drinks we had. Would definitely go again, very good experience.

    While both the waitresses were extremely nice and sweet, one of the servers was downright rude. He first made a comment on how us moving to one of the round tables for 4 from the larger diner-booth style tables was inconveniencing him (to which I asked him why do you have the round tables for 4 in that case?), and then when ordering desert, he told one of my guests "So you want to come to a restaurant and order ice-cream"!? Really unneeded and rude. Such a contrast to the 2 lovely waitresses.

    The host was very accommodating to our wish for a quiet table. We were served promptly and the server made excellent suggestions so that our courses were well integrated. The roasted Seabass was outstanding, as well as the pasta first course. Great location in Belzise park and well worth a visit

    The food was good and location lovely. However they were “unexpectedly” short of staff on the evening and the service suffered. To be fair, they acknowledged this, apologised and did reduce the bill to compensate. I would go again and hope this was a ‘one off’.

    Calici is an a solute neighborhood gem. It has a warm yet modern feel plus a cool vibe. The menu was a mix of class Italian dishes along with some really interesting and well executed plates. All were very, very good all around. Wine list was on par with food choices and really nice glass offerings.

    An outstanding evening! The service was one of the best we've ever seen in London, attentive, friendly, efficient without being overbearing. My halibut was cooked to perfection and the sauce complemented the texture; the friginelli were a treat, the Rose wine exquisite!

    The food and atmosphere is usually very good. But last night they brought our entrees about 2 minutes after the starters and they got cold when we started to eat them. We asked them to warm them and they were dried out. Very disappointing. I’d like to give it another chance….. but not sure.

    The food was reasonable but the noise level was unacceptable it was so noisy that it was unpleasant tables very close and small tables for 2 people restaurant was busy Price of wine quite high

    CaliciResponded on February 13, 2022Dear Mrs VandaR, Thank you for choosing us as location where to spend your Saturday evening, we really appreciate it. We would like to point out that unfortunately, as the all business, the most busiest period for us is weekend, we are a restaurant there is developing a service focused on food and wine, so we do apologize if you consider that to expensive however, they are chosen between a very selected range of fine wine producer. Honestly we are happy to be busy and hosting people. Regards

    It was almost a 5* evening. Food and service were superb but we had the misfortune to be seated close to a group of 4 males, one of whom had already had plenty to drink when we arrived. We saw him have at least another three and he became increasingly loud, using offensive language.
