We shared a few antipasti- the truffle arincini were wonderfully tasty and well cooked- many places seem to use truffle as a gimmick but the taste here was spot on. The charcuterie was great (love the pork and fennel). The ricotta with radicchio and blood orange was nice and fresh. Only comment would be that as an Italian my girlfriend, was use to a creamier, more flavoursome ricotta? Perhaps look at suppliers? The pasta dishes were exceptional and generous. We had the pork nduja tagliatelle and the ox shin tortellini. Obvious skill and precision had gone into making them and I enjoyed greedily slurping them both up unapologetically. We shared the monkfish as a second course, which is my favourite fish and so I was greatly looking forward to this. Thankfully, the fillet was cooked perfectly and the almond sauce complemented it beautifully. To be honest I’m not sure that the monks beard added much to the dish and possibly could be substituted for something else. Also, while I completely appreciate that monkfish is an expensive cut of fish, I’m not sure the roughly 200g fillet justified the almost £30 price tag- the plate just needed filling up somewhat. The service was excellent. All servers were welcoming, friendly and polite the entire evening. Really nice surprise of bringing over a birthday celebration. Couple of mistakes of not having wine glasses but they were lovely. Also we were the last one there and there waited patiently and politely for us to finish our bottle. Overall a wonderful meal, great cooking and wonderful service. Will definitely return. You made an Italian happy on her birthday!

So dark that we couldn’t read the menu, the table was small so tricky to fit the wine with its glasses and water and menus and also had to be straddled due to its very odd legs. Food was good but menu invites sharing but also starter main and desert, so was quite confusing. The service was poor, the staff swept up the around the table next to us and as it was so close had to squeeze past our table while sweeping, making for an unpleasant experience. Throughout the service was abrupt and strange. Style over substance.

Staff very welcoming, food and drink very reasonably priced. Service very friendly and attentive, staff do try hard. Started with a mix of cold and hot starters shared between us, very pleasant and well priced. 2 of us had pasta and one monkfish. Wine list short but well chosen. Overall good value for money and pleasant experience. Would go back if in the area.

I’d recommend trying a few things off the menu as the restaurant are very accommodating to people sharing dishes. The downside was the lighting being quite dim but overall a fantastic night.

No atmosphere by 10pm we were one of only 2 tables there and the music had been turned off. Service was very very quick, felt everything was very rushed. £130 for two people with the cheapest bottle of wine AND we'd eaten some food before we arrived!

The weitress serving us had no manners at all and kept on slamming the plates on our table or pushing us away when she needed to replace the cutlery. She served our wine holding the bottle from the TOP and spilling the wine everywhere without even apologising. My girlfriend ordered the truffle agnolotti and she received a plate of 5 (FIVE) empty tasteless pieces. After we complained to the manager, explaing that it was unfair to charge £18 for a plate of FIVE empty agnolotti she offered to replace it with a different dish. Unfortunately she forgot to take my plate away to keep it warm while they were cooking my girlfriend's dish so I had to eat it cold... After we asked for the bill, we offered our feedback to the manager explaining all our disappointment however she replied that we could not expect a great service from them as they were only a brasserie. I found this comment really inappropriate as they are not a cheap restaurant and they could take a better care of their customers. The manager offered to take the service charge away from the bill however we refused as there was no point. To end this review I would reccomed to anyone reading this to go elsewhere as they are much better restaurants that for the same price (or less) will look after you a lot better.
