A “really vibrant and buzzing” venture – this branch of Carlo Distefano’s stylish Italian group has a business-district location well-suited to entertaining. But it also makes an “ideal spot for a relaxed meal out”: “Saturday night and the place is full of life, music, and all types of people – just lovely”.

* Based on a three course dinner, half a bottle of wine, coffee, cover charge, service and VAT.

A business district branch of the ever-growing ultra-glam Italian chain; though the sceney vibe and high prices can attract criticism, it impressed reporters this year, with “top seafood” a highlight.

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!”

For 30 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).
