When informed that our party were in a rush to get to the theatre, the staff were extremely helpful, serving us speedily. Fastest I've ever received a meal at a sit down restaurant, that I can recall right now. Our beverages had barely gone down before the food arrived. Speaking of, it was relatively pricey, but then again this is Southbank, land of the fiver-a-pint pop up bars. Even the street performers will only take notes!

Had the starters which I ordered (all £3.95) been either larger or less expensive (or, darn it, hows about both?!) then this review's rating would have been kinder. Another shame were the menu options, which offered little in the way of variety  for plant-fueled animal lovers such as myself outside of the Appetisers and Breads lists, which forced me to piece together my dinner using several smaller dishes. Said dishes were delectable. Still, a pizza-pie with dairy-free cheese would have gone down better. If you serve Italian food (or, let's face it, any food at all), you should have at least a couple of menu options which do not contain dead animal corpses or the cultured breast milk of cows. Lactose-intolerants and vegans are weeping the world over. 


meatballs om focaccia very smal and expensive. not tasty either. the starter was ok but nothing special and expensive for what it was.i wouldnt want to eat there again.

Managed to get a seat here on a very busy Saturday evening the staff are friendly and efficient, the starters and bread was good but the main courses, seafood pasta was OK but nothing special sauce bland needed alot of pepper and lemon to bring to life. As for the chicken milanese escalope, looked unappealing on the plate tasting was even worse dry, grey in colour and tasted like cardboard as for the pasta with it, the sauce was again bland and could do nothing to save the dish. We're stick with their pizzas in future if we eat their again.
