We had the set lunch which was excellent value and very high quality. It came with a large selection of snacks before the starter and tea /coffee came with free refills.
The service was top notch, as was the food and the dining room was smart and simply decorated. I hadn’t expected such a great place - would heartily recommend

Initial welcome from front of house staff was cool and perfunctory. Restaurant was about half full at 7pm midweek. Waiting staff were more friendly and welcoming. Food for starter and main was good and tasty but not exceptional - no 'wow' factor. Desert course was singularly uninspiring with the most boring presentation of just a piece of pie - no attempt to dress the dish /plate. Somelier was excellent and chose well balance wine for our food. Overall not the standard that we were expecting from Angela Hartnett.

Lovely food and the wine pairings were particularly interesting. I had sweetbreads and a souffle for the first time and was delighted with them. Plenty of room round the table so didn't feel overheard.

A lovely experience!

Great meal and service. Very small glasses of wine (125ml) way overpriced - approx 400% mark up. Subtle background music would have added atmosphere.

Excellent food, beautiful ingredients cooked to an excellent standard. The hardest part was choosing what to have!
We loved every course we had, and the amuse bouche were excellent also. For desert they brought an extra plate to wish my husband happy birthday, a lovely touch. The service was excellent, maybe a little quick with tbt starters given the amuse bouche and lovely breads they provide but the rest of the speed was ok for us.
Personally there is something missing in the ambiance, I can’t quite put my finger on it but it’s what stops me from rating it a 5. I’ve dined here twice now and felt the same both times, perhaps it’s to do with the decor.
In terms of value, I like that it’s very clear what you’re going to pay for the food and when we asked for wine recommendations, we were given different price wine recommendations. Our drinks at the beginning and end were more expensive than expected, for a regular beer and coffee.

Dining from the fixed-price lunch menu which proved excellent value. Courgette and pea fritters with curds were the epitome of summer sweetness and crunch. The lamb main was spectacular and again expertly prepared and seasonal. The variety of cheeses was wide and perfectly ripe. Went off-piste with pistachio soufflé with chocolate sauce was light and indulgent. Super wine recommendations throughout. So glad we tried the Sardinian red which could have been four reds in one. Will be back soon.

Fully deserving of Michelin star. Ambience is lovely and staff welcoming but not informal. We had a table with view of kitchen - fascinating. Only one issue - I felt cod dish was too salty for my taste (still ate it all). Staff genuinely cared about this and could not have done more to demonstrate this even to extent of maitre d’ checking back with us. I want to go again

The service was great and the food was very tasty and very well presented, however for the price, even for a restaurant of this standard the portion sizes were small. However the apricot soufflé was amazing. The seating was comfortable and we did not feel rushed to order. Overall a nice experience but a little pricy for the portion sizes.

Quite good but not top rank - I am part Venetian & lived Rome 6 years, can think of many places in both cities way ahead in the product & taste .
Best food was dessert of one guest, mains generally acceptable
Nothing disastrous, nothing spectacular - a side light also fell off by our table & guest's macchiato nearly nudged into his lap.
If this is normal overall I would say needs tightening up
My wife and I set up informal but very fresh & just as in Italy, so may be I am too critical?

We had only been to Murano once before, some years ago, and had enjoyed the occasion immensely. However, because of the long elapsed time, it was with some trepidation that we invited a very special gues to join us there. I shouldn’t have worried!

The ambience was just as I remembered, elegant but relaxed dining with helpful and charming service. The food was perhaps even better than I remembered. I had pea and wild garlic soup, crab and asparagus risotto and turbot; every course an absolute delight. As we all had fish, we took a recommendation for a Soave, which proved to be delicious and just right for the fish.

Altogether a wonderful experience enjoyed by us all.

Our second time at this restaurant. Very welcoming staff, comfortable seating, house champagne a bit green but our other wines excellent. It's a really good idea that some fine wines by the glass are available here.
Our food was mostly very tasty and very well cooked apart from a crab risotto that was totally over powered by the pickled celery that swamped all the other flavours. we were not charged for this dish which was very thoughtful. However the abiding memory of our meal is the best almond and apricot soufflé you could ever imagine, washed down with a glass of chateau d'Yquem.

Our only problem was that we were under a time constraint because we had to make our 2.30 slot at the RA. We had to keep reminding the waiting staff of this and were not sure whether this was passed to the kitchen. Otherwise, everything was delightful, including the staff. Would certainly come again!

Great food once again. The wine list is surprisingly reasonable with a great selection of Italian reds - we had a 2015 Sardinian wine for about £50 and it was lovely. The noise level was unnoticeable (although one suspects our neighbouring tables might have a different view). This place never disappoints.
