So glad you are reopened and the place was alive again. Fabulous creativity with the non- alcoholic drinks and we loved you had a special vegan/gluten free menu available. The food was delicious and service spot on.

We had a wonderful lunch. The produce used is so fresh and flavoursome. The atmosphere is very friendly and welcoming and the decor is superb in what was once a lavish banking hall. The service was first class with just the right amount of attendance. Very safe procedures too. Could not fault it.

Very much enjoyed a family lunch here - has become one of our favourite restaurants over recent years. We received a very warm welcome from Carina and waiting staff were very helpful and friendly. The food was delicious, especially the mozzarella starter enhanced by the basil crumb. The Nogroni was almost like the real thing!

Awesome to be back! We wanted to eat the whole menu, but plumped for a main of calamari friti and parma ham and melon with ricotta to start things off. My son had his usual pasta pomodoro whilst I had the Lobster Tortelloni which is one of the greatest pasta dishes I have tried in my puff! My son (aged 8) tried it and said he would have it next time! Will be back very soon!

Prices quite ridiculous - mint tea £4 for three leaves of mint and hot water, focaccia that tasted like a cheap white loaf, £5 for Punk AF, lobster pasta dish £22 for tiny portion and when told no vanilla ice cream left for Affogato and I suggested substitute for chocolate for a mocha version computer says no attitude from the waitress. £180 for a very average lunch for 5 people starter and pasta is acceptable if the food is exceptional, it was below average so am afraid wouldn’t recommend.
