Harden's survey result
Occupying an impressive Edwardian banking hall in the heart of the City, this high-ceilinged space provides a large, classic Italian menu and – if you still have space – makes a feature of a sizeable cheeseboard, showcasing Italian cheeses. Reports are uniformly upbeat, including as a business choice (and, if Accounts are on your case, there’s a good-value lunchtime set menu).
This traditional Italian newcomer (with a sibling in Riga) opened briefly in late 2020 with a second debut in May 2021. It occupies an impressive Edwardian (1902) banking hall in the heart of the Square Mile – the former telling room of the British Linen Bank (later Bank of Scotland). The dramatic columns and ceiling of the space remain and chef Aleksandr Sarujev is at the stoves. Early reports are very enthusiastic (but too limited in number for a rating).

"A beautiful old banking hall, with a well executed if limited Italian menu, and wines priced for expense accounts. Decent business venue"
