This restaurant was formerly known as Timo. With excellent-value set lunches and smooth, ingratiating service, it is popular with local office workers, yet come evening it also works as a date destination. The pale décor is airily elegant, the tables well spaced and the atmosphere serene.

The menu comprises a concentrated selection of classics along with more unusual alternatives, so wild mushroom flan with black truffle dressing and quail’s egg might precede char-grilled rib-eye with rosemary, roast potatoes, rocket and parmesan shavings.

The dessert list isn’t particularly inspiring (tiramisù, pear and almond tart, ice-cream and sorbet), but there’s an enjoyable selection of Italian cheese (served with own-made walnut bread) for £8.50. There’s also a £2 surcharge if you fancy having a main-sized portion of pasta, which means the tempting tortelloni stuffed with sheep's ricotta and radicchio and cooked with thyme and butter rises to £12.90.

The wine list runs to over 175 bottles, with a handful under £20 and a fairly extensive selection under £30 as well as costly offerings from some of Italy's greatest producers.

Thought it was pretty good. Have been there a few times as I live close by. Food is always good quality if lacking a little bit of taste


Absolutely disappointed!!! Was greeted with a stern 'we are absolutely full' instead of checking to see if we have a reservation.Made a reservation for 3 only to be told we made it for 2 and was given smallest table in the rest and was told they could add a chair but can only be placed in an awkward position even though the restaurant was completely empty as we got there for 6:30 which is the opening time. Treated us like dirt. We walked out as the disgusting service only continued and not once did the manager apologise. Was looking for a great evening only to be ruined by this awful restaurant and the owner! Such a shame.
