“Ostensibly an Italian restaurant” – the Lioveri family’s fifteen-year-old fixture cooks “more in a modern British idiom” (although “there is a bit too much sous vide work, gels, foams and spherification to be really cutting edge”). “Apart from unnecessary modernist touches”, the “execution is excellent” and a meal far more “refined” than its unassuming exterior might suggest.

While it has “been an Italian restaurant for ages”, there are signs that this two-floor venue is “trying to break out” (confusingly, given “a section on the menu for cicchetti”) to a more ambitious and generic modern European style. “The owner’s son can cook” and there’s high praise for “light, delicate, excellently conceived and cooked dishes” with “amazing presentation”. But one regular cautions: “some items can be overworked, over-embellished or over-thought – it’s very refined cooking, at times it’s almost too refined, to the point the flavour risks being refined out of the food!”
