Came for a meal with my family, six of us. Overall the restaurant is just OK. Food is average, service average and prices reasonable. Toilets are very cramped and could do with a makeover. Overall - just average.

Ate here with friends whilst working in London. We all ordered dishes and think this was the first time everyone had food envy. Every dish looked amazing and we all enjoyed our individual dishes. Lovely attentive staff. Would highly recommend

Nothing too fancy on the menu but healthy italian favorites are prepared with care. The service is top notch. The ladies hail from Brazil. Prices are very reasonable for central London. Nice house red wine too.

Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and
leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance
access to many of London's most popular attractions.
It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated
museums, including the must-see British Museum.
Despite an understandable popularity with students,
tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury
retain a quiet, residential feel year round and

Yes they were, and we were treated as very valued guests. The atmosphere and ambience were very much as we have found in good restaurants in Italy, where we have never been disappointed.
