It's quite easy to miss as the restaurant itself is downstairs and there's merely an awning and menu at the street level. The decor is industrial. Every so often they offer a three course regional menu with paired wines. On our recent visit it was a Sicilian menu. The food was nice, although I have enjoyed it more from their standard menu on previous visits. The wines were fantastic though. The staff are very polite and helpful.

Was expecting a lot more for the money the meal cost, my girlfriend ordered a fried cod and potato meal which arrived on a tiny plate and consisted of one piece of fish on a bed of tomato sauce and one tiny new potato. The service was very rushed and literally came out five minutes after we ordered it, although not surprising considering how small it was. We left the restaurant feeling disappointed and starving.

Very bad value for money. Even considering location. Service is good and knowlegdeable. The dissapointment lies in the food. menu items were not available and portions were very small. Food overall is badly seasoned. I have to very much agree with previous posts, definitely a tourist trap.

A lot of people are calling this place a tourist trap, but I really don't believe that. This is actually one of the restaurants that I visit and don't feel like I am in the busiest part of London. The service is on point, always helpful and happy to talk through the menu. The zucchini batters thins (cant remember what the menu called them) are wonderful and totally more-ish. The lunch and pre theatre menu is a total bargain for the area and the food is delicious. I think this place is a nice haven to the hustle and bustle above

Pre-theatre meal April 2016 (though most of us ate from the a la carte). Tasty, well prepared food and efficient, unobtrusive service in a relaxing atmosphere with a friendly vibe. Loses one star due to the heat down there, it's in a basement and gets very hot, though it was full when we went. That said I would definitely go again.

I strongly recommend this place. The buffalo mozzarella is the real stuff from Italy. Having only had pizza I couldn't comment on the other dishes but mine was very nice, evidently made with fresh dough cooked in a stone oven. The ingredients are all top quality. The service is excellent and waiters are professionals. The atmosphere in the dining room is very pleasant and classy, with the kind of lighting that is relaxing but not uncomfortably dim which is sadly the norm in lesser restaurants. It's authentic Italian food by London standards and I will go again.

Tourist trap! Quick in, quick out only attended by people going to the theaters. High end prices. Arrogant service by various servants (4 served us). Order squid, risotto and pizza with red wine. The pizza was like eating air, tasted like nothing (frozen pizza would have been better) notice this should be a italian restaurant. Risotto okay, squid undercooked. They charged us 4 pund for one glas of tap water, 6,5 pund service charge and additional 12,5 % on top of the bill. Don't go there, plenty of other alternatives nearby!
