    Great vibe as soon as you’re all through the door. Service is top quality with the food to match. A quick lunch so hopefully get more dishes when we go back👍🏻

    I was very disappointed since I was a regular customer the service was very bad!!! The Italian waiter was very rude and the attitude was like we were begging for the orders. The waiter was taking my bag and phone out of the table when he could’ve politely asked me to remove my things. He proceeded to push around the table and serve us roughly. When we finished out dinner and the waiter was taking the plates roughly again he dropped a spoon full of food right into my shirt, right then I was fully frustrated and couldn’t take it anymore so we talked to the manager and he was calming us down and did nothing about the waiter so I refused to pay for the lousy service!

    On point as usual. My 2nd visit but with my Mother and Auntie. We arrived an hour early but were immediately seated and there was nothing that the Team wouldn't do to make our experience a good one. Thank you.

    The food here was amazing, however the service really lacked for the price of the restaurant. The wait was very long and waiters ignored us. After forgetting to put pesto on my pizza and then forgetting about bringing it out, they still charged us for pesto on the bill. Although the food was good we felt very forgotten about and on a birthday trip this was not good.

    VERY bad service from the manager himself! Inappropriate and uncivilized way to deal with the customers In addition to his bias towards those who pay him more money to get the table they want. I can’t believe that they hired this man as a manager. “When we asked about his name he refused to give it to us and he kicked us out of the restaurant”

    - Reception staff need to be trained in discipline and be more helpful. They should understand the principle that the place offers a service for money that is not free of charge.

    As vegetarian diners, Italian is usually a safe bet. The cocktails and starters were lovely but the mains were very disappointing. Lacked flavour completely, from basic (salt) to herbs (both had pesto) and in 2 pasta dishes, this is very noticeable and was very surprising, especially when quality ingredients are being used.

    We had a very pleasant late lunch on the sidewalk across from Harrod's department store in London. We choose a series of appetizers, including calamari, burrata and grilled vegetables along with their bread basket. The food arrived quickly and was very well prepared hot and seasoned nicely. The only concern was that my wife was served a espresso con panna with a hair in it. YUCK! They were apologetic and simply replaced the drink promptly. Even with this experience I would still recommended a visit.

    Lovely spot for lunch or dinner. The food was excellent and the menu had all of the famous Harry’s Bar items. The service is only average and, unfortunately, a common theme among London restaurants these days. I think the menu is well priced and good value for the quality of the food.

    It was our anniversary dinner and we got there quite late because of the crazy traffic. They were kind enough to keep our reservation for us. We sat outside which was nice and warm but weren't quite pleased with the noise from the traffic by the roadside. Not entirely the restaurant's fault. The staff gave us a complementary dessert which was quite nice and thoughtful. They might need to work on their response time though. We felt a bit ignored sometimes but it was a nice experience in the end.

    Had a wonderful dinner, food was divine! It was my birthday and they made it special! Overall, was very good and will definitely come back, however, it was extremely busy and the staff looked stressed out, we had to flag any time we wanted anything as no one checked our table until we were finished eating. A beautiful restaurant,really nice setting. Would absolutely recommend the courgette flowers and the gamberi and nduja! Cocktails were excellent too.
