It’s the shape that strikes you first, a series of tall alcoves in the basement of historic Leadenhall Market in the City of London. Yet it’s anything but dark. Smooth white walls, matching table linen and spotlighting create a bright, private space well-suited to confidential high-powered lunches. The menu’s Italian, a skillful combination of simple modern Italian and traditional regional recipes, to be precise. Specials change every few days, but the pasta is always homemade. Excellent fish dishes. Diverse wine list, in both price and character. Professional service.

Arrived for 1.15 booking and were left hanging around the bar like spare parts for 15 minutes until I grabbed Giorgio who found us a table in a back part of the room and hurriedly changed a table for 6 to a table for 3. We only ordered mains but it took an hour to arrive and then two turned up and we were told the other had been dropped and they had to make another. By which time our food was cold (it was lukewarm to start with and felt like it had been sitting around for a while). There was a quiet apology when we left but nothing from the waiting staff and nothing off the bill which was £170. Never again. Go to Caravaggio - miles better than this shambles.

There is a good wine list and I like the mini eggs with coffee. The only draw back is the underground location and their being no natural light but the atmosphere is busing. It is in the pricy range but food and service mean it is well worth it.

On arrival the waiter was eating his dinner and took a while to take me to the table. Ordered duck and asked for it to be pink, received overcooked, grey duck that needed to be returned. Pricing on veal milanese could be more transparent, as receiving an additional charge for spaghetti seems disingenuous when it's a fundamental part of the dish. Sadly won't be back, as it's a great location and had come recommended.

The staff were great and it made for a lovely later afternoon lunch. It was busy as expected so noise from conversations is quite high but this also creates a real buzz. I would highly recommend.

The low score reflects the wasted journey and disappointment of not being able to eat here despite an apparently confirmed reservation rather than the quality of the food. I attempted to contact open table and the restaurant but after repeatedly putting a message on the OpenTable need help section, I was no further forward and ended up getting a takeaway.
