There is no justification, n'or to my mind ever will be, in any restaurant charging in excess of £50.00 for a medium sized bowl of Spaghetti pasta and some fresh Truffle shavings. The pasta here is good, in line with any other competent Italian restaurant and I am fully aware that fresh BlackTruffle is expensive but even so, this was a hideously overpriced dish.
I like eating in expensive restaurants -- I like good food but I can't bring myself to accept that this particular dish was anything but a rip off. My veal Milanese was good-- the green salad was lovely -- we shared a dessert and had a coffee each -- I had a Prosecco ( Kir Royale 175 ml) and my friend has a Caipirinha which was very good. We shared a bowl of Courgette Fritti (was ok ). -- the bill for this meal was aprox £178.00 !!-- Absolutely ridiculous and not worth that at all ...I felt sick when I saw the bill even though I wasn't paying for it (birthday gift to me ) -- I love my friend dearly but won't come back to this Italian when there are so many in London that are just as good but don't charge £50 plus for a bowl of pasta and black truffle shavings. Service was very good-- professional, but I wouldn't say overly friendly -- a bit stiff perhaps . Toilets a bit tired. Very busy at lunch and very very noisy but a great atmosphere all the same-- but still .... that pasta price !!!! :(
