A total must! The Octopus carpacio was a first and absolutely delicious! The seared tuna is their speciality and highly recommended. Reservation required.

We booked a table at this popular Italian eatery for lunch with friends. The setting is industrial chic, with trendy accessories. We were welcomed with true Italian flair and hospitality. The breadbasket consisted ingeniously of a brown paper bag filled with delicious bread sticks, ciabatta, etc and was accompanied with superior olive oil and balsamic vinegar. The restaurant was full to capacity during our week day lunch. The atmosphere was alive, with buzz and energy filling the contemporary Italian space.
I was delighted to order an Aperol spritz, and after the waitron gave us some recommendations, we decided on seared tuna, pasta and risotto respectively. All the dishes were served in a reasonable time, presented with style and were delicious and tasty. We enjoyed dessert, with both the bread and butter pudding and my affogato being perfect.
Service was prompt, professional and hospitable.
Ideal for a perfect Italian meal.

Really nice fresh, tasty pasta. Helpful waiters and great dessert added to our lunchtime experience.
We had the Rigatoni with mussels which was fresh and al dente.
The pannetone bread and butter pudding and Tiramiso were a tasty end to a good meal. Definitely recommend.

The ambience is great! Unfortunately the service deteriorated through the meal. We even started referring to the waiter "elusive" and eventually disappear.
Starters were stunning, but all 5 of us felt the main course was disappointing. Desserts were mediocre at best. This is a great pity, as we really enjoyed the ambience. I'm also not in favour of restaurants blocking parking bays for preferred patrons, it does not create a good impression. Rather arrange a valet service for them.
