Was looking forward to a fairly good meal, but was sorely disappointed. Tomato soup was close to tasting like Campbell's soup. The best thing I had all night was the sticky toffee pudding. Service was just plain awful, waiter forgot part of our order. .Good...More

You just get that feeling that you are in te wrong place, Stuffy, over priced and just average. So may better places to go for your money.

10 of us took their private room and had a wonderful experience. Appetizer, family style main course, and dessert to die for. Great experience, great service. Central to LODO. Must try.

Enjoyed the relaxed vibe of the restaurant. The waitstaff was personable and attentive. We had several different dishes among the six of us...I would say the Branzino and Bolognese were the table favorites. Nothing elaborate but I would return - very good food.
