Food was ok
((((* 14 October 2018 by Chantelle from London
Delicious! The octopus starter was perfect, the risotto was full of shellfish and the burrata tortellini was stuffed! However, waiters need to be more attentive to customers and we had trouble at times trying to catch their attention. The flourless chocolate cake was a perfect end to our meal though - lovely. Definitely coming back!

Superb food and service. I had the mixed antipasti and then tortellini, both of which where delicious!

All the food was amazing, and our waiter was very sweet - my only criticism would be the whole experience needs to be paced better with more attention to the customer experience.
We were given less then 2mins with any menu before being asked what we wanted - the starters then came out within 10mins, and they brought the mains while clearing the starter! The same happened with dessert. It made it feel more like fast food than an evening experience...
Finally, I left the table to find the toilets, only to find when I got back that they’d seated too many people around the table next to us and - being banquette seating - 2 of them were literally sat in my place, unwilling to move! It left us squashed together on one side of our table, and without any of the staff recognising the problem, we felt hurried so decided to ask for the bill & leave. We’d otherwise have stayed for another drink.
Overall, I would potentially go back for the a lunch where it doesn’t need to be as leisurely, but it’s a shame that the awareness of some of the key factors of what makes a great night out seems to be underestimated.

Fabulous food, great atmosphere, wonderful waiting team who beat pan lids and sang happy birthday when the cake came in! Superb seafood risotto - Thanks Chef. Really excellent all round.

Pleasant and casual. Menu had pasta, fish and meat. Food was good but nothing spectacular...
