The decor and the design and the seating makes you feel as if ur in Italy, don't miss Buratta cheese - truffle pizza - Thames sauce steak (+9 score). They have a non alcoholic red wine (7/10).

The main course hot dishes are now pre-prepared and on a hot plate rather than chosen from a menu which means they're not as fresh, which is a shame, but I simply chose more from the... More

Decided on this restaurant for our 37th anniversary. Food is delicious, and staff is very attentive. More the expensive side though but well worth it. Quiet atmosphere and great for date nights.
