This review is taken from the current (2013) edition.
This restaurant has little in common with its better known older sibling Di Maggios. The décor is contemporary and stylish featuring leather booths for intimate dining as well as a larger space for bigger parties. The menu includes Italian classics with an upmarket twist. So the salad caprese is made with burrata cheese from Puglia, a creamy buttery mozzarella. The prawn cocktail sauce is infused with limoncello, giving a great citrus kick. The pizzas are made with fior di latte mozzarella, hand stretched, baked in a traditional stone oven and all the better for it. The burgers are made with beef and minced veal, making them leaner, richer and tastier than the average. The wine list is not vast, but is distinguished by the fact that they serve a decent Barolo by the glass for £7.45. A bottle is not bad value though at just under £30. Above average Italian food in pleasant surroundings with efficient service.
