Very nice atmosphere, service and food. I had a delicious seafood pasta with a couple of glasses of Prosecco, followed by a delicious cheesecake.

Food is good. Service was a little slow even though thd restaurant was not full at that time. I would recommend the seafood linguini.

Thanks Elliot and team, we appreciated the great service. Great lamb pizza! Pizza had a lovely crispy base, lamb was not overdone and the sauce was great. Location of the restaurant is great if you are out in Southbank.
