We had no reservation but they fitted us in downstairs. Rather cramped but if We wentvagain we would sit upstairs. Calves liver was excellent as was the lamb rump. 2 bottles of very good Chianti and a good night was had by all. Friendly staff.

I visit the restaurant quite often for dinner and I love it. The menu is excellent although I always end up ordering spaghetti. The place is very cosy and reminds me of the Mediterranean. It is my favourite restaurant in London!

Fabulous service, which was very prompt and a bonus with tired hungry children. Food arrived quickly and was excellent - we finished it all despite the enormous portions and my kids have asked to return whilst we are staying in London. Recommend to all!

Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and
leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance
access to many of London's most popular attractions.
It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated
museums, including the must-see British Museum.
Despite an understandable popularity with students,
tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury
retain a quiet, residential feel year round and
