Just love this beautiful restaurant .... stunning position on the river ... a warm welcome awaits and the surroundings are cosy in this dreary weather ... an escape to ‘Italy’ Staff are so accommodating and helpful and nothing is too much trouble . The menu is an eclectic mix of fish, seafood, meat and pasta and not forgetting fab pizzas... deserts are lovely too ... at the moment the strudel is delicious ... great wine list too .... nothing not to love ♥️

My wife and I met up with a friend here on Wednesday evening and received the usual warm welcome from Alessandro and his staff - a great start to an evening that just got better with each course. The food was excellent, the wine was fizzy and delicious, complimenting every dish and the service from everyone was friendly and efficient but never rushed, giving us plenty of time to enjoy our meals without ever feeling pressured. Alessandro was his usual friendly, charming self and very excited to tell us about visiting his father in Rome to celebrate his upcoming 85th birthday, all of which made us feel more like we were friends rather than customers - so no change there then. We have been quite regular diners at BA for a few years now and it just gets better and better with every visit. A(nother) huge thank you to Alessandro and his brilliant team for a wonderful evening and we look forward to seeing all of you again over the Christmas holiday. Alessandro, we hope that your father is in good health and you all enjoyed his birthday celebrations. Forza Italia, mi amico!!!

Confusion when we arrived, weren't told the other member of our party was already waiting upstairs and were told to wait downstairs .Wrong meal brought (only 3 meals to get right!) Also when checking the bill.found we had been charged £11 for 2 drinks which we didn't have. The food was good but not impressed with the service we received.
