Italian
Italian Restaurant The Italian Restaurant has a modern but elegant feel, complete with an imposing wood-fired oven, suede wall panelling, handmade Moroccan tiles, mirrors in solid oak frames and chandeliers with candles. Complex, state-of-the-art lighting systems can change the atmosphere from sunrise to sunset, from season to season. It offers regional Italian fare with a contemporary twist. Created by Marco Torri, the menu comprises a superb assortment of antipasti, Tartare di Salmone o Tonno and Carpaccio di Manzo among them, followed by a selection of homemade pasta. Fish dishes are of the calibre of Branzino Arrosto con Caponata (Roasted Wild Sea Bass Fillet served with Sweet & Sour Sicilian Vegetables), whilst meat includes Piccione al Forno con Cavolo Nero (Oven-roasted Pigeon with Sautéed Cavolo Nero).

Service wasn’t amazing considering the cost of the service charge, food over priced as expected. Radio playing was a bit of an odd one, different music choice would be better

We chose the restaurant because of Italian food and wine, both of which were great. The service staff was great as well.
The disappointment comes from our table for 2 which was squashed between 2 other tables preventing access to the other side of the table for my wife.
The website said they had a formal dress code, but the people beside us were wearing blue jeans and hoodies.
The music was too loud and everyone had to talk loud to be heard.

Disappointing food and ambience. Very very loud, service was too geared to sell sell sell which was annoying. Pasta was so soft it must have bern cooked hours before. Min price per person of £50 imposed.
In a lovely city like London there are so many better places to enjoy a birthday meal and drinks with family and friends.

Honestly I thought this restaurant would be at a better level than expected, however food was very bad, and cause irritation in stomach for myself and all family members, in addition, family friends also visited a week before and all got sick too, they went to the oriental and we went to the italian...

Food was lovely. Only two issues. Too many tables far too close together making the restaurant too cramped & lack of privacy/intimacy. Surprised service staff can get around & queuing up to put coat or jacket away, felt like a busy nightclub rather than a high end restaurant. I remember why I haven’t been to this restaurant for awhile now. Food remains delicious though, especially the tiramisu dessert! So I can forgive the nightclub ambience. Service staff remains friendly & outstanding as usual.

So inconsistent
It’s either amazing or awful food
Unfortunately our last visit was awful:
Calamari cold
Spaghetti pomodoro with way too much sauce
Tagliatelle Bolognaise was full of rosemary

2nd visit, Great Food!!
However the décor/seats are getting tired.. more annoyingly though, this is a huge restaurant and at 15:45 on a Saturday probably only 30% occupancy. I realise you group tables together when the restaurant is quiet for ease of service, ambiance etc however the tables for two are stuck together so tightly that it's difficult to get in-between the tables to the bench seat without knocking over a glass with your backside on the table next door, and no my backside isn't huge! There must have been 20 or more empty tables yet the three couples and one single in the room were all seated elbow to elbow? in the tightest space! Really strange! We were there for 2 & 1/2 hours and in that time they turned the same tables over next to us twice?

I had my birthday meal at the Italian Novikov. The food, service and atmosphere was nothing short of perfect. I had the burrata with tomatoes and olive oil for starters, lobster pasta for mains and the meringue cake for dessert. The food was amazing. The meringue cake is probably my favourite dessert of all time! I’ll definitely be back soon.
