We had a lovely dinner with my friends. Our waiter Vincenzo was very helpful and patient - as it was quite difficult to make our mind and place our order. We had a wonderful food, wine and service. Will be back hopefully soon.

Had dinner with my boss here last Month. We were discussing business and I found the fake Italian attentiveness of the waiting staff distracting. The food quality and presentation was distinctly average and the portions less than generous. £89 for two? (without wine), hardly value...More
