Nice restaurant in a series of rooms including some in the basement. The usual Italian food and wine is available. Some dishes are good e.g. fish with vegetables however the pasta less good. Accepts credit cards but not Amex.

And yes, the food was almost as memorable. Particularly the dessert. Had a house wine and it was better than expected. Can confirm that management seemed to filter prospective patrons at the door. He had many, many from whom to select.

I don't really like raw meat/beef but wanted to try it, so I decided to try the Carpaccio there, and it was very, very delicious! The stuff was very helpful and polite too! This one is a great place to try Italian dishes!

We had a lovely meal here for Lunch. We got some of the special menu and the dishes were beautifully presented and also very delicious. I especially liked the Baccala wraps. It gets busy so get there right when it opens to get a table.

Welcoming host and good service. The food was excellent and well priced. The porcini pappadelle and tagliatelle ordered from the plates of the day menu were superb. Would recommend booking - we managed a walk up start but saw many customers turned away. Highly recommended.
