Food as usual was fabulous, very simple and authentic.

The restaurant was very cold, one table had asked for a window to be open but it was too cold and draughty. We did mention it to staff on more than one occasion.

The lights were very bright, one was shining in my friends face. We had to have it moved.

The atmosphere really suffers because of Covid...this can’t be helped

What a fabulous place, tucked around the corner to Harrods and all the hustle and bustle.
Greeted with a very lovely smile and immediately made to feel very welcome.
If you love Italians and fabulous Italian food served in style you will love it here.
As it was still truffle season the special pasta starter with black truffle was delicious.
Portions were a good size, wine list excellent, waiters fabulous service,what a great lunch thank you.

the food is of average quality. The fried calamari we had was really bad quality from a restaurant that is as expensive. overall the price for what we got is hard to justify.

Been here multiple times and always well pleased. Took some friends for first time. Was definitely an off night

Prefer some mussels that were not good. No one ever asked how they were. Would have spoken up but was hoping I hadn’t eaten anything to make us sick.

Had fettuccine Alfredo and added chicken. Very good. Pasta fresh, sauce wonderful.

Service was less attentive and more rushed than previous experience
