The decor is, somebody commented, like going back to the 80s. Outside it appears to be like the Hanging Gardens of Babylon and the inside has a style of its own - very colourful with every banquette looking like paintings from a gallery. Not awful or great - just very unusual.
All that aside, the staff are attentive but I was a bit miffed that after asking for a simple "house red", and thereby giving a choice of several, it transpired the choice was not the house wine as it was priced at £8,75 for a small glass.
The food portions large but chicken escalopes very dry and pasta which came with it in a bland, watery tomato sauce. I would have preferred less quantity and more quality.
However, positioned prominently on the Strand, it was packed, possibly with tourists, but very disappointing if they feel that is what London has to offer for Italian cuisine.
Would I return? Sadly, no.
