Summary

A “lovely”, “always busy” business district Italian that’s part of the ever-growing, glossily glam national chain; reporters this year couldn’t get enough of it – “nothing is too much trouble for the staff”“pricey but we didn’t care!”

Summary

A “good busy Italian in the heart of the business district” – an outpost of the ever-better-known national chain. While it’s arguably a tad “overpriced”, even sceptics laud the “great atmosphere” (often animated by local WAGs) and the “vast” menu usually has something to suit.

Summary

This “fun and bustling” and “very plush” outpost of the national chain is "great for WAG-watching", and offers “good” (if “eye-watering”-ly expensive) food. The “over-the-top bling style” and “sometimes overly charming” staff are “not to everyone’s taste”, but it's a “successful formula” nonetheless.

Summary

This “dressed-to-the-nines” Italian, the city-centre branch of a “glossy” national chain, offers food of a “surprisingly high” standard, with fish “always the best option”; tables, though, “might be too close for some”.
