Went there for a quick business lunch. The interior looks fantastic, art deco definitely works for this particular place. Tables are spaced out nicely, and it's one of few places in London where you can actually talk during meal and not to shout to be heard.
Wine cellar on both sides of the entrance looks impressive, and the restaurant prides itself on the special wine vacuum machines which allow them to serve expensive wines by glass without imposing the whole bottle on you.
Service is immaculate and inobtrusive. A very nice selection of Italian breads served before meal.
For starter, the Sea bass “Connolo” was great, the fish retaining the full flavour and its delicate texture, whilst the crispy coating adding a nice twist to it. I hate celery with all my heart, but it tastes lovely there, so don't let it put you off.
Partridge poached in cabbage leaves was very succulent, and did not leave any unpleasant aftertaste (as may sometimes happen with game).
I didn't have much room for dessert which I regret with all my heart, however the tiny Italian hand-made sweets they served with coffee were lovely (almond ones are a real treat, and the bergamoth zuccerini are a must with tea!!).
Overall, very very good.
