The very first outpost of the glam Italian chain (est 1992), with “super stylish décor (albeit quite retro), slick service, an extensive menu and a relaxed atmosphere. The food doesn’t always live up to expectations”, but it can, at times, be “excellent”.

For 33 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
