Excellent food. I am coeliac and for me it was amazing to be able to choose from all of the dishes on the menu!

Great Gluten Free restaurant, food was delicious although some of them could have come out a little bit hotter. My friend and I had cocktails and they were ok, quite forgettable actually.

Booked this for a Birthday treat for my husband-liked the gluten free idea!
Found the atmosphere 'lacking' and almost too informal although staff very polite
There was music playing (I guess on a CD) which was 'tired' and far from contemporary. At least 3 Christmas tracks...in May?!!!!
It's an Italian restaurant so why not some Italian tunes to create some ambience?
The menu choice was limited which wasn't a problem in itself but there was no explanation as to what 'sanhgum' pasta is (it's made with a kind of durum wheat which is quite coarse!)
When something is 'stuffed with fish' it would be nice to know what kind of fish!
We ordered a stuffed squid starter to share which was very tasty although the plate was cold
My husband ordered the duck filled ravioli-it arrived on a cold plate, 10 pieces of ravioli with a dob of 'sauce' on each (they looked like lady's nipples!)
Although not inedible the food was nearly cold and very bland there was more pasta than duck in my husband's dish and it was tasteless; we like pasta 'al-dente' but this was too coarse
I ordered the hemp tagliatelle with baba ganoush
The plate was cold as was the ganoush which took out any heat in the pasta; the meal was flavoursome if a little undercooked
We had a cup of tea and no other drinks
We didn't have dessert as they were expensive for small portions (we saw what others had!)
The bill for that lot was £38.90 so NOT good value for money even by London prices
We left feeling hungry and hot-footed round to Maccy D's!
My suggestion for a more pleasant experience would be:
1. heat the plates before serving;
2. double the portion sizes (not the prices!) serve meals with Italian bread & olive oil perhaps?
3. Play more appropriate music - the place needs livening up somehow
No-one was rude but it was a huge disappointment - such a lovely idea in principle but needs improvement to be successful

Friendly staff. Nice atmosphere. Tasty food and the one vegan in our party was glad to have something to choose from on the menu. But if we went for just a main course we went home hungry! The mashed potato with the cod was a mere scraping and no vegetables with it. Needed more food on a main course plate in my view.
I ordered the mint and pomegranate water which tasted of only water and was impossible to drink as the leaves and seeds got stuck in the straw. Perhaps it needed infusing with boiling water first, then chilling as it was tasteless.

The small plates were absolutely delicious! (pesto gnocchi and polenta with asparagus). Good choice of wines. The service was nice and helpful. The desserts were a bit disappointing (our first choice was not available) - maybe there could be simple gluten-free classic additions (e.g. chocolate cake made with almond or coconut powder, sorbets or other ice-creams) and some special creations. Overall it was delicious though, and my neighbours' plates also looked yummy! Will definitely come back.

Does gluten free have to mean small portions and bland? Some of the dishes we ordered were ok ( the meatballs ) overall this was not the case.
The cooking lacks flair. We had to ask for cruet, as there were none on the tables.
The wine list was expensive (prosecco £28 for example) .
Prices pretty high for what was offered and an automatic 10% service charge added on makes it overall an expensive tasteless experience.
