Thank you a lot for the service and nice recommendations for day plates. Me and my fellow colleagues really enjoyed the meals. I really enjoyed my Amatriciana and my fellow colleague's duck was exquisite.

Perhaps I chose the wrong dishes but they failed to impress. Had the steak which was average at best and surprisingly greasy. I lost my appetite after that.

Wasn’t too sure when entering with the paper menus on all the place settings, and fairly loud music playing. But soon reassured by friendly and attentive service. Things got better with the arrival of the wine - 3 different glasses between the 4 of us from the specials on the board - all good. Better still with the arrival of the food - excellent Italian sourced cheeses and meats to start, then very good mains, meat fish and veggie. A very good place to spend a Saturday evening.

Lovely evening - super-friendly staff, delicious and unusual staff. Pasta portions perfect (I could cycle home rather than having to be rolled home) and the bits of pudding I stole from other people were bloody marvellous.

We were a little rushed as the restaurant was closing early, but nonetheless we did not actually feel the staff rushed us, and the food more than made up for it. Every dish we had was perfectly cooked and flavoured and we would love to come back again and again.

As the word "Enoteca" suggests, this place is more of a wine bar that happens to serve food, as opposed to a restaurant. However, the food they serve is pretty good - authentic Italian fare, slightly tweaked with a modern touch. When I went there with my friend they seemed to be somewhat short-staffed and the serivce wasn't particularly good, but the food was good. If you are a wine drinker, you might like the diverse range of wines they serve but if you are not a wine drinker prepare to be disappointed with the drinks list.

Had to catch the waiter’s attention repeatedly, we had theatre tickets so couldn’t wait around. Music was a mis-match. Half empty. No ambience. Limited menu.

Food and drink were good quality. It can particulary recommended the seabass which was lovely. Staff were very attentive and friendly. Just make sure you get a table away from the drafty windows. Will definitely be returning, perhaps when the weather is warmer though

Our first time at the restaurant for a pre-show dinner. The managers and staff were very welcoming and friendly. They were very helpful at finding a delightful sparkling red Pozzoferrato, and serving a main course venison - which was excellent. Definitely recommended.

Great service, I changed the numbers and they went out of their way to accommodate despite being busy. Short but very well executed menu. Good quality and very tasty. Whole group was happy which can be hard to achieve! Will return.

We enjoyed a nice meal from the small but well-chosen menu at Enoteca Rabezzana. Although there seemed to be plenty of staff around, the workload was unbalanced so we had a few longer than ideal pauses and ended up in a bit of a rush to get away. The food was pretty good and there's an interesting selection of wine. Service delivery/organisation needs to sharpen up to help the helpful and friendly staff serve their customers better.
