Very good Italian food, Service was also good. The balsamic reduction (don't call me balsamic vinegar was so great that we purchased a bottle to take home.) We had lobster and pasta one time and fish the next time. Both were very good. Will return.

Home to the vast majority of embassies and diplomatic
residences in London, sophisticated and upscale
Belgravia also boasts a wealth of luxury hotels, fine
dining restaurants, and some of the city’s most stroll
worthy lanes. While the prices here are high, taking a
leisurely stroll through the streets of picturesque
and elegant white stucco houses is free. Hyde Park and
the Buckingham Palace Gardens are only a stone's throw
