Summary

“Take a footballer (Rio Ferdinand), sprinkle on some Italian style, spend some money on some bling, and you have a restaurant to be seen in”“but as a place to eat?” – some “would not give it another try”, others are more positive but say “we ate early before the chaos…”

Summary

A “lovely historic setting” (a former bank at the top of a popular shopping street) is the highlight of a visit to Rio Ferdinand's “relaxed”, rather glitzy, Italian. It can seem overpriced and disappointing, but wins consistent praise from those who opt for the “very good-value” set lunch.
