Summary

The “stunning, consistently good Italian food” at this three-year-old Mayfair venture is accompanied by a wine list that reflects its ownership by a 700-year-old Florentine banking and wine dynasty. It is certainly expensive, but “I don’t fully understand why it’s not busier”.

Summary

This pricey two-year-old Mayfair Tuscan has yet to make waves, but on (practically) all accounts is “most enjoyable”, with a “nice interior and friendly service”. Its top feature is a wine list reflecting its ownership by a 700-year-old Florentine wine and banking dynasty, for whom this is a first UK venture.

Summary

After a year in operation, this ambitious Mayfair Italian (first UK venture of a 700-year-old Italian wine dynasty) wins praise for its “more-ish menu” and of course “great wines”. However, there’s a “feeling that this is a missed opportunity” – the room “looks lovely” but “doesn’t quite work”; and “prices are high, even for Mayfair” yet “portions are small”.

Summary

“The name is very ’70s” – not so the “amazing and modern but comfy” design of this Mayfair newcomer, the first UK venture of a 700-year-old Italian wine dynasty; chef Roberto Reatini’s food is well-praised, but, as one would expect, it’s the “incredible” cellar that’s the real draw here.
