Booked a table at Il Tartufo for Thursday 8 June and received an e-mail confirmation. Selected main course oxtail from the fairly short menu - waiter returns some 10mins later to say this is not available. Time for desert and I select an option, again...More

I cannot say a single good thing about this place. The food quality was poor, the service was worse. The staff are untrained and the chef is trying to manage the restaurant from behind the counter. It is completely overpriced for what you are getting....More

Went out for dinner a birthday celebration, food was stunning from starter to dessert and service was good. The owner made every effort to make us feel welcome in his restaurant and the birthday panna cotta was a nice touch to end a great meal.
