Had a good meal, service slightly slow but maybe due to us looking busy talking.
Starters very good. Bruschetta, calamari and burrata - yum!

This was the 1st restaurant I experienced while in London and kicked off the trip well. The wait staff was incredibly friendly and helpful and made sure our overall experience was great.
