Great breakfast menu on South bank. Then extended to pizza and pasta for lunch. Great fresh food. Presented very well. Friendly, efficient waiters. Nice ambience. A bit pricy !

My wife and I arrived at Vergnano without a booking and were shown to a table promptly, the service was excellent, staff were attentive and the food was excellent. The starter arrived promptly, and the main course after a short wait, again staff were very attentive ensuring that wine glasses were kept full. The restaurant was busy as we arrived... More

Went back to meet a friend and had lunch - just amazing - great ingredients, well prepared and the taste was exquisite. The coffee afterwards was as usual the best in London! Will lunch here more often.

Stopped in for a coffee which was amazing and ended up staying for cocktails and then dinner, all of which were great. If you love good, strong coffee then this place is a must. And as for their hot chocolate, it is fantastic - strong and thick, great mixed with an espresso. The food is also good value and great... More

Delicious cocktails, warm atmosphere, great location right outside the Festival Hall, perfect for a post theatre drink. Food menu looked inviting.

Good restaurant open late. Went for post cinema hot chocolate and coffee after a show. Would love if they offered gluten free chocolate!

I had never heard of this Cafe/Restaurant, but was invited by an American business colleague to meet there, because of its proximity to Waterloo Station. At first I sat on the Terrace, which was a little bit cramped, and I had a beer, german, I think, but beautifully cold and refreshing in the temperatures now into their 30s. This was... More

Poor, unfriendly service. Cold coffee. We got the coffee for free at least after complaining about the service.

I've eaten here three times now - all after seeing the queues in the better known nearby chains. We've never had to queue. The downstairs area at the back is comfortable and smart, and have found the service and delivery to be attentive, pleasant and fast even on a Friday night. Nor does it appear to attract the noisy groups... More
