Service was good at times and lacking at other points. Food was below my expectations given the reviews I had read. 4 of us ate there and tried all the dishes, and all the dishes were quite flavourless. Drinks were nice as were the desserts. Overall I would say the experience was just about average

Absolutely fine but could have had the same for much less in an Ask or even Pizza Express so generally disappointing. The alcohol was prohibitively expensive (£12 for a glass of Prosecco). Was expecting so much more.

Food was good, overall was fine but wouldn’t go back as there’s just MILES better Italians.

No atmosphere, when we requested bread (as no bread was brought to accompany burrata/cured meat platter) they brought out “focaccia” which actually was just pizza crusts burnt to a crisp, forgetting to refill water, removing plates before you’d actually swallowed your last mouthful

Today, the starters were mediocre and the main was average at best. Service was super slow, instead of the waiting staff serving customers, they seemed to be standing around not doing much. I was not impressed at all, and doubt I'll return again any time soon. We're usually at a restaurant for around 4 hours. After 1 and a half hours, we left. Very disappointing! There are much better places to dine in Mayfair!

The food was good and the service too but when we arrived the menu online and the one given were slightly different with the dishes we wanted to order initially missing which was a bit disappointing but otherwise, it is overall a good restaurant.

I was sorely disappointed with the food. I invited some friends who were visiting, to dinner. They, and my husband and I ordered their fish specials of the day. Not only was the presentation un appetising, the fish amounts served were negligible. It was as if some flesh was scraped off the bones. The wild bass was served with copious amounts of vegetables, and the guarnard with copious amounts of noodles, probably to make up for the lack of fish on our plates. Each dish was £ 35.
I have never been so embarrassed in my life.
The ambience though nice, does not make up for the indifferent food

Dead atmosphere, especially for a Saturday evening, turned up 10minutes late (but phoned restaurant to explain) and was immediately given a time limit upon arrival, didn’t feel very welcomed. Our waiter was friendly and food was good but unfortunately wouldn’t return and wouldn’t recommend - or atleast to the Mayfair branch.

Nice mellow atmosphere. Very friendly and attentive staff. Food was extremely nice. A little pricey but when it’s good who cares. Especially when you have the best tirimisu you’ve ever eaten. Could’ve had it for starter, main and desert.

Really good atmosphere with a super friendly staff and exquisite service. We tried the spring set menu and tbh I was expecting small plates and above average quality. The course sizes were very big and the food was delicious! After two courses, it was almost impossible to try dessert. Very good price/performance

Price quality is within my opinion not in proportion. At least not if you let yourself lead by the waiters recommendations. The waiter offered a glass of wine to learn after the fact it costs £20/glass. The speciality of the day is “sea bass”, note this is a specialty of every day. This is charged £70 and definitely has not enough fish for two adults. At the end, I payed extra tip without being notified this was already included on the bill. I had to ask for an itemized bill because the waiter took it away after paying. Nevertheless, with this experience next time i will come back again just to bully the status quo. Congratulazioni, £270 for two and i was still hungry 😂

The only thing that I didn’t like was the place of our table. There were two separate tables out of the main area and we were seated there. Just the ambiance it’s not the same. It was colder.

I had a reservation for two last night for dinner. Within the reservation note i had alerted the restaurant to the fact that this was for a birthday, and under the special requests i asked for the dessert ordered to be decorated with a happy birthday message with a candle/ sparkler. I subsequently called on the day to ensure and confirm this would take place.


On arrival of the dessert i was shocked and utterly disappointed that none of my above request was executed. I am extremely upset and disappointed that this was not carried out, it was for my partner's birthday and it definitely ruined the evening for me, and quite frankly it is an embarrassment. A restaurant as yours, claiming to be the finest Italian dining in Mayfair amplifies  just how much of a let down this was and it is simply unforgivable. Any restaurant should be able to carry out the above, but in particular a claimed 'fine dining' restaurant - there is a certain expectation for better, but this restaurant was a let down.


At the end of the evening, having paid the bill, i complained to the floor manager and yet again i was disappointed. The response i received on this complaint was a minimal effort apology, shrugging of his shoulders, no sincerity or willingness to rectify this, except an offer to come back for another meal - which i declined -  i will ensure that i will not be visiting this restaurant again.


Overall, this was an unexpectedly appalling evening  with equally appalling service. I hope improvement is made from this.

Interior of restaurant is beautiful, and so is the food. Great service. Pizza is fantastic. We had Margharita and Pepperoni. Linguine with clams was great. The side arugula/rocket salad with Parmesan and Balsamic was a real surprise star. One of the best things was the bread, which is essentially pizza, but fantastic with butter. Nice wine list. Go.
