Summary

Hot on the heels of opening Radici, Francesco Mazzei and D&D London are set to open this modern Italian, in the revamped Battersea Power Station site, in autumn 2017. That’s the headline anyway, but the man actually in the kitchen day-to-day is Francesco Chiarelli (who worked with Mazzei at L’Anima).

"We so wanted to like this restaurant. We loved L’anima and frequent Sartoria a lot and whilst F may not be cooking himself we were hoping the standards would be in place for good solid Italian food. That coupled withA stunning location and architecturally interesting restaurant we were optimistic . Boy were we let down. The food is very pedestrian at best. We started by ordering zucchini fritti to munch on before the appetisers - in fact we ordered them when we ordered the drinks- they came with our main course ( service was painfully slow). I could have forgiven that had they been as good as Sartoria- but they weren’t, in fact we spent the time playing spot the corgette since they were mainly fried air. Moving on our starters of meatballs, tortellini and gnocchi, they were ok but no better than you would get at Strada . The main course of spaghetti with lobster and sea bass in tomato were tasteless and rather unappetising to look at . For dessert we ordered Zabaione fruit gratin which was inedible because the egg yolks were not cooked. When I complained , they took it back to the chef who tasted it and told me it was perfect. It may have been to him but it it tasted awful and not like any I had ever eaten before. My partner also agreed it was odd but that was because it tasted of raw egg yolks. Yuck ! To be fair they didn’t charge us and gave us lemon cello as a apology . Frankly the rather tasteless food coupled with the attentive but slow ( painfully slow) service on top of a £230 bill for 3 will not have us return. I’d rather pay £60 more and eat at Sartoria or a heck of a lot less and eat at my Local Italian down the street. Whilst the reviews on the website are glowing and I am at a loss as to why."
