The experience was superb. I just had one maincourse which was duck. It had an amazing apple purée and orange confit. It came with some very small carrots and the whole dish was delicious. The ambience is specially when decorated and anyone has good taste would appreciate it. This place is very recommendable

Waiters seemed to be rushing us, despite the restaurant being predominantly empty - Tuesday afternoon service. A couple of comments that were not necessary around requesting a Pale Ale, stating Pale Ales are not Italian despite the menu not having their full drinks offering on it. Food was good, but not good enough to justify the below expected levels of service and premium price. Better Italian options available in this price bracket locally.

A nice Italian restaurant in the middle of Mayfair. Conveniently located near Bond Street Station. It is expensive so be aware. The main course options for vegans is limited and to be honest not the best. The dessert was wonderful.

For those diners who love fish or meat, this is a good choice for you. My guests loved the lobster dishes.

Thank you for your review. We appreciate your comments and have passed them on to our Head Chef who is taking into consideration extending the main courses for the Vegan Menu. We are delighted you enjoyed the dessert and hope you give us a second chance soon. Have a lovely Festive Season.

Went on a Thursday night. I thought we had a good evening when we walked out of the door. The food and the wine was good. The service level doesn't fit the decor and ambience. It was slow and non responsive, but we managed to get through it... I would expect a much better service for the price and quality. Probably it is understaffed. The bill looked a bit high, but didn't interrogate as it was a business dinner and had guests. Few days later when reviewing my receipts, I was in shock when spotted that we have been over charged. We were served bottles of £170 wine and charged £540 for that!! I feel a bit disappointed and cheated to say the least after spending so much money.. Will avoid in future ..

Lovely food and ambiance but unfortunately service was disappointing. The first time the waiter showed up it was to immediately ask for our order. We asked for the wine list first and had to chase twice to order something. Basically ignored the entire evening. Not what was expected for a place of this calibre.
