I am surprised upon reading many of the recent reviews because I visited this restaurant at the end of August and thought it was fabulous. I loved the eclectic menu of regional specialties from around Italy done with a contemporary/creative twist, like the bergamot & prosecco granita. I had the tagliata of grilled rib of beef with parmesan, rocket & rosemary as a main and the quality of the meat and cooking were superb. The service was way above what I have experience generally in London. We had a question about wine and the sommelier was present in a few second to recommend the best wine for the style and price. The waiting staff were warm, enthusiastic and very attentive – a rarity in London. The restaurant had a warm, buzzing ambient atmosphere. I dined as a group in the private room. All were very impressed by the excellent service, ambience and food. Maybe the problem with some reviews one this site is the expectations were too high to start and the comparisons with more highly priced Italian restaurants. This restaurant reminded me of the contemporary dining expereince in Sydney where you could have an expereince at a restaurant that focusses on the food and tastes, and enjoy a relaxing ambience with friends. I thought it was very good value for money and will be going back again and again…
