Recently had lunch here with my friend to check out this new opening in Soho. Upon entering, I was impressed by the interior design as it immediately gave off a good vibe. The marble table tops and the dark furniture against the bright lighting made for good contrast and decent photographs. 

As for food, I went for the Gnocchi as my main. Unfortunately, this was rather dull. The gnocchi was overcooked - they were too mushy and didn't have much of a bite to it. It came with some broccolini, mushrooms, and cubes of pumpkin but this wasn't enough to give the dish flavour and taste. I had to add freshly ground pepper to give it taste but I thought it could have done with some herbs cooked into the sauce - and if it already was, then it definitely needed more. The saving grace was the side of Truffle Mac & Cheese that my friend and I shared. This was a generous serving! It had a perfectly golden and crisp top, was super cheesy on the inside, but some spots were a little dry. There wasn't much of a truffle flavour though I did see the truffle shavings on top. 

The service was really friendly - our waiter was super nice and it didn't take long for our food to arrive after we ordered. It was also very nice of the assistant manager to come speak to me about the Gnocchi, as he noticed that I hadn't touched much of it. I appreciated his time and effort in coming to speak to me and hopefully in giving some feedback to the chef on this particular dish.
