Summary

There’s “still a sense of occasion when you dine” at this “very smart and fashionable” Belgravia Italian, which remains in the same family after 35 years and is nowadays run by Laura, daughter of founder Gino. It’s “very business-y” though, and having hosted Frank Sinatra and the Clintons back in the day, it’s fair to say it is “past its glory years”.

Summary

Frank Sinatra was among the notables who flocked to this sleek Belgravia Italian in its 80s heyday. Nowadays run by the founder Gino’s daughter Laura, It still delivers an “imaginative menu” with Venetian specialities, a “pleasant atmosphere” and “good service”, but even diehard supporters complain that it’s “pricey” and sceptics say it’s “gone over the hill”.

Summary

This swanky Belgravia stalwart was a big-hitter in the 80s, but attracts mixed praise these days. “Competent Italian food with good professional service and some style” is the majority view, but even fans can find it “surprisingly pricey for what it offers” and to critics “what used to be justified by fine cooking and a sense of verve, now seem expensive for something that’s slapdash and fraying at the edges”.

Summary

This “upmarket” stalwart Belgravia Italian (an A-lister favourite in days of yore) with a “lovely terrace for summer” wins pretty solid praise for its overall appeal. “It’s on the pricey side however” and its harshest critics feel “the food’s not up to scratch”.
