The restaurant has an excellent vibe. The pizzas were excellent and the staff friendly. Pretty good value too. Would definitely return.

My favourite Soho place to drop into for decent cocktails, excellent food (at sensible prices), fabulous service and some proper uplifting sounds - brilliant!

We were appalled by the poor safety measures in place. Despite all staff was wearing masks, there was a constant flow of people in and out of the premises, clogging the bar area, ignoring safe distances and constantly bumping into our table. The staff did nothing to minimize this. If you want to expose yourself to the risk of getting Covid-19, this is the place.

Nice pizza .. did the job .. good Negroni though as a pre meal aperitif it landed about 5 mins before the food ..

Good wine by the glass

Though £6.00 for a basic side salad with grey /black avocado was a bit of a joke !

Food was very nice and generous ! The sharing plates are large don’t be fooled! While it’s lively and got a nice buzz, the music is a little loud depending on where in the restaurant you are sitting- making it hard to hear each other at times. We were there on a Tuesday night and the service was friendly, but quite slow. Took us a while to get our food.

For sure I’ll recommend to a friend. The food was amazing but the attention even better. Giulia was an incredible host, she recommended us the best options and they have the best tiramisú we’ve ever eat.
Thank you very much!

Great atmosphere service could have been better, Pizza was excellent but the pasta dish was a bit sticky, lacked flavour and was too salty. Cocktails and desserts were excellent. Would definitely recommend for Pizza but would suggest to stay away from the pasta.

I would say our experience was just ok. The food was average - we had the nduja pizza but there was hardly any nduja on it. The arrancini balls were over cooked, the carbonara was not bad but the bacon in it was very fatty. My favourite part was the drinks - aperol spritz and non alcoholic Venetian spritz. Service was ok but nothing more.

The staff were very kind; butthe food was massively salty. The calcio e pepe pasta was inedible because of the excessive salt. The pizza was also salty. Go easy on the salt!

All in all this was a good experience for the price. We met here early due to the offer from 3-6pm although we weren’t offered this menu until I asked! Cocktails were great but the pasta I had was average and reflected the price.
Not nearly the same atmosphere as Cecconi’s in Shoreditch but I suppose it will always be busy due to the location.
Service was friendly & efficient.

Noise level being high isn’t a bad thing. Was nice to be in a place with an equally good bar as it does restaurant. Favourite place I’ve been to in a long long time, will be back every time in London.

Overpriced low quality food. We ordered a margherita
Pizza, which has way too much sauce and was not even cut properly. We also ordered focaccia, which tasted like salted pita bread. Finally they advertise a special happy hour menu, but later they mention it’s for walk in only. I would not recommend

Its a nice place - good food and quick service
Two complaints - it is so so noisy, you can't hear properly. And we have to send our drinks back twice as they were wrong.

Food was amazing (truffle arancini wow) but the noise level was beyond anything I'd ever experienced in a restaurant. Truly unbearable and unnecessary.

The staff were good, we were running late but on calling them they kept our table. Service was prompt, friendly, efficient.

We shared two pizzas and a bottle of wine, it was adequate for three ladies, pre theatre light meal.

It was a busy evening. The restaurant is exceptionally handy for the Prince Edward Theatre so perfect for our evening performance of Mary Poppins.

The food was great - highlights included the zucchini fritters to start and the carbonara and pumpkin ravioli for mains. Prices a little on the high side - especially for any alcohol! Service was quick, friendly and helpful. We had booked a table for 5.30pm prior to visiting the theatre opposite; it was already very busy, very noisy and very dark!
