Very good italian in Hammersmith 21 December 2016

I ordered the truffle pasta which was the special of the evening with 3g white truffle and girolle mushrooms which i would rate this dish to be 7/10. I recently had the same dish at Teca Del Duca on Westbourne Grove and felt it was slightly better with black truffles but much more of a truffle taste than at L'Amorosa, probably 6-8g of black truffles thus supposedly less potent over white, I'm thinking their sauce is using more truffle butter and oil to give the additional truffle flavoring which we both love. My husband had the veal parcel pasta and enjoyed this and we shared the Sea trout carpaccio which i would rate 7.5/10 given the trout was slightly smoked and we didn't realise this from the menu description before ordering. Overall a very good Italian meal and with a bottle of wine costing £85 for two. I would recommend if in the Ravenscourt area.

Innovative starters!!! 20 December 2013

Atmosphere is fine, not sophisticated but not quite cafeteria either, in between the two. Food – didn't choose tasting menu given 3 out of the 6 dish on tasting menu were desserts – definitely not great for diabetics or watching the pounds which put me off this menu immediately. starters were great!! had the pig ears which were very good..black pudding was delicious! Steak tartar was very unique and delicious. starter portions are very small. Mains i wasn't too impressed with. the innovation doesn't continue and it is very much any decent restaurant standard for both fish and i had the lamb main which was fine. wine list was great…anything you choose is likely to be good value so this is done well. Overall i would definitely go again but wish i could stick to starters if i didn't need to order minimum 4-5 to be fully satisfied!! total for 2 people with half bottle was £150

Good food for a great price 21 September 2013

Had the set lunch at Medlar in September 2013 and thought it was great. Starter was delicious, definitely order the crab ravioli again. Main dish the waitress recommended the underblade with snails being beef sliced with snails. Snails were delicious and tasted great with the meat however the meat itself wasn't the best quality you could buy, a tad tough but cooked perfectly. My girfriend had the type of game and it tasted no different than chicken and was a tad dry. Starters rated better than mains in my book. Coffee burnt, definitely not good. My girlfriend got the peach sorbet which was very good for dessert. Recommended wine was very good. Overall would return to this restaurant, one of the better restaurants in this area.

Decent but expensive 20 April 2013

Best dishes: starters: crispy chilli smoked chicken, soft shell crab, prawn dumplings, prawn toast Mains: lamb very very good, vegetables not great compared to other chinese places and quite expensive, duck very fatty skin but decent wrt taste, iron bowl marinated chicken pretty good, beef pretty good although not as good as lamb. Overall good food but around £50/person with wine. yauatcha just as good if not better and the same price bracket with a better vibe/atmosphere.

Umu was a very pleasant atmosphere with dim lighting and reflective surfaces and mirrors everywhere. Service was excellent on a saturday evening. I found the food to be good overall. If i were to return, I would order the following: tuna tartare salad at £20, smallest steak £40 and a piece or two of the toro sushi. On this first trip to Umu, we ordered a variety of dishes including grilled eel (honestly not great 5/10 in taste), sashimi platter which was good compared to other restaurants – tuna, salmon and mackeral were the best of the lot) and a couple of other dishes including excellent wagyu steak and grilled lobster in a sauce – £40 for most main dishes. Wagyu steak and toro sushi were worth the trip to this restaurant!! Two people dinner + 1 bottle of wine £45 came to £300 including 1 starter, 1 vegetable, smaller sashimi platter, 3 mains, 2 pieces of toro sushi and 1 dessert. All dishes are pretty small in size.
