A great cross-over - Italian food in tapas servings. You follow the traditional Italian way with antipasto, primo and secondo - but you select 1 or 2 tapas sized plates of each. Sharing two plates for each round was well enough for two. They kindly provided only pasta for the kids who thought the tapas selections a bit too adventurous :).
Kind service, great food - a place to come back to!

A great experience and great cuisine. A thoughtful regional Italian menu, which labels the regional origin of each dish. We were there for the Easter menu, which included a delicious capretto (goat kid) ragù with pappardele, and a traditional Calabrese lamb dish, both beautifully prepared and presented. The baccala (cod) starter was also delicious. And a less traditional but nevertheless tasty form of pastiera. Attentive and friendly service - Lilia was particularly knowledgeable and helpful. The room itself is both comfortable and beautiful. Buona pasqua. We'll be back.

One of my favorite restaurants in London. Amazing and different menu...totally delicious, We had an anchovy dip to die for and fantastic steak and fish. Roast suckling Pig was incredible. I find it a little overpriced....but then it is in central London!

This restaurant had great Italian food and was perfect for a pre-theatre dinner. It had fantastic food. Tad crowded and not ideal for an intimate conversation but food is delicious and service quite attentive

I've been here several times and the restaurant never fails to disappoint or impress guests! The menu is different every time so you always have the excitement of trying something new.

Make sure you book in advance or you might not get a table.
