Really nice place with great staff and an interesting menu. It's all about a new concept of gluten free italian kitchen. I have eaten ravioli with crab, corguettes and avocado and it was perfect. They have also a nice italian wine menu.

    The food was delicious, the staff friendly and wonderful. We enjoyed really much. We will go back next time we visit London.

    Great food. My Girlfriend needs a Gluten free menu, and the options allowed her to enjoy pasta again!

    I can't eat gluten so I was excited to eat somewhere dedicated to avoiding gluten, a rare thing indeed. I booked as I had tried a few times to get in but been told there were waiting times of an hour plus. We arrived a little ahead of the booked time, the couple ahead of us were seated (they hadn't booked), we then had to wait 20 minutes to be seated even though we had booked which wasn't a great start. I had ravioli with saffron sauce which was very sweet and really overpowered the ravioli. We waited half an hour for dessert which arrived once we reminded them. Staff were very pleasant but we did feel forgotten about on several occasions and the food was a disappointment.

    Chestnut pasta was amazing as was the duck ravioli.

    Fantastic place. Great food that I can eat without worrying about the ingredients. Really friendly staff. Great wine and the tiramisu is to die for!

  • (((** by from London

    Great starters, mains very good but one (polenta gnocchi with truffle oil) was much better than the other one (raviolini stuffed with crab) even though the latter was great too! Very noisy, maybe because there were a lot of girls groups!

    Great for a coeliac to find an exclusive gluten free restaurant. However food can be on the bland side

    Quite average food and small portions.
    Despite having reserved a table for 8 people, we were not seated until half an hour after the booking time.

    The staff were wonderful but the food was unfortunately a big let down. We had the pasta, salad, polenta and egg and rice balls and they were all quite unpleasant. Sorry.

    Very slow service, did not have all items on the menu and food was cold
