Large basement restaurant with separate bar areas. Good Italian food, but wines very expensive by the glass. $360 for four of us, with one shared starter (a generous salumi board) and no dessert. Filtered water $16!

What great timing, truffle season so had to the lunch special of straccatelli with truffle and exceptionally well priced, for memory mid $30's. Sat at the bar and decided on three courses. Was not so enamoured with the octopus and white beans for entree. The pasta was sensational and I was in heaven. Had the semifredo for dessert. The bread was also excellent. Good wine selection and I had a gruner veltliner and dolcetto.

Went here for dinner on a Friday night, walking downstairs the bar was packed, the restaurant was nearly empty but it was 6:30, we ordered the il Capo-chefs menu, 6 shared courses, chefs selection of todays inspiration and favourites. The first 3 courses came out in quick succession and I thought that we were being hurried up but that was not the case after the first 3 courses it slowed down, which I enjoyed, just under 2 hours later we walked out, bellies full and brimming smiles. The food was so delicious, the service was excellent-wait staff are really switched on and probably one of the best staff I've experienced for a very long time-very attentive and extremely polite and knowledgeable. I thoroughly recommend this restaurant and cannot wait to go back.

Left feeling underwhelmed, lovely staff & atmosphere was nice(although I loath being seated near the entrance to the amenities when restaurant is at such a low capacity)
An extensive drinks list with beautiful wines, unfortunately the food missed the mark & does not complement at all. The food definitely had a nice freshness but was very lack luster, the pot roast chicken was actually terrible. We left without having coffee or dessert which is very rare!
