We booked for bar seating & not the Set Menu, instead we were seated at a table and not given the choice to order from the menu. While the food was delicious & the service attentative, there was just too much to really enjoy each course.

Great quality food. If anything, too much. I'd cut the bread in the first course, and halve the size of the ragu pasta dish - and I'm a big eater.

Very good food and service. We found the noise level too loud which out us off somewhat. Not sure what can be done about this as it is a function of the design and materials.

Chef's no choice $75 degustation. Modern Italian at highest level. Beautifully presented with great variety. Shame to have to share with the attention to presentation.
Friendly ,enthusiastic service. Probably more great food than we needed!
Excellent value for both quality & quantity.

A printed menu during service & to aid recollection after would be a classy touch.

Look forward to returning when we can.

The meals are beautifully presented and tasty.
A couple of notes on the courses we had a la carte for lunch-
the duck tortellini came with a very watery sauce. This related I think to the cooked ridicchio accompanying the dish. Flavour profile was good but the amount of liquid made it very soupy.
The spanner crab pasta was very tasty and nicely presented. No bread at the table meant I couldn't enjoy the last remants of the sauce - I would expect bread on all tables.
Staff are friendly and attentive though we had a mix up on our wine.
No linen on the tables apart from napkins.
I came with high expectations and left a little disappointed - a little more attention to details would certainly lift my opinion of what is clearly a restaurant with great potential. Good work but not quite at the Underbar standard.

The food is superb and the the service truly excellent. I enjoyed a Tortellini with duck - it was delicious, and the broth had to be soaked up with a good bread! For us older people the music was too loud. I'll be back!

Overall food was delicious. Favorites were the Aranchini, duck tortellini and the chef special desert was outstanding. The squid ink pasta a a bit too salty for our liking.

Customer service and cocktails were top notch.
