Pre-theatre menu delighted us with quintessentially fresh, elegant and unfussy Italian dishes. There was no offer of bread or extra parmesan.

    Not only a disappointment but, apart from slow service, no finesse, and an uninspired pre-theatre menu, the food was largely poor and horribly overpriced for what it was. The pappardelle broad bean pasta, cold and gluey and beans sparse, though flavour excellent. Sea bass totally undistinguished-do better at home - vegetable tempura disgraceful, should not be on menu. Would have sent it back but we were attending concert and time was short. Duck pie with carrot strips was very nice but more village pub English than Coty of London Italian.

    Top class experience. I was delayed in traffic and only got to the restaurant at 6:45pm, with a concert starting at 7:30pm. I explained my situation to the hostess.

    She quickly found me a table and set me up with Gin and Tonic. I ordered hake from the previous theatre menu,
    a glass of white wine and a lemon tart dessert.

    The hake was beautiful as we're the accompanying green beans, spinach and rosemary potatoes. As soon as I finished the main course, desert arrived with a double espresso. Both excellent. Another waiter arrived with the payment machine and I was ready to leave at 7:26pm in time for my concert.

    In all, for staff served me, all friendly and helpful.

    After the show I returned for a cocktail, because I felt they deserved more business. I had a perfect Old Fashioned made with bourbon, in a big heavy cut glass with tons of proper ice cubes. A perfect Old Fashioned. Again the beekeeper was friendly and professional.

    This place gets 100% from me.

    Interesting view. Pre-theatre menu is okay (main from 7pm only); very small portions; nothing special. But how can a small cereal dish of tomatoes cost nearly £5? Sides way too expensive.

    We had a simple light meal in advance of a concert. We each took one of the fish dishes from the set menu. Both were excellent in terms of taste and presentation.

    Lovely food, limited menu but imho, that's a good thing. I've eaten here on many occasions and have always had delicious and innovative dishes.

    As good as it's always been in its various incarnations over the years - nice view, lovely atmosphere, v pleasant & friendly staff (some been there for years!), quick service (important for theatre dining) & - oh yes - excellent, good value food

    This restaurant is an oasis in the concrete jungle of the Barbican . Airy with big windows overlooking the pond and piazza, furnished with funky fabrics. The service was good- fast and friendlly ( although the very casual and varied dress of the staff madeit difficult to identify them). Our big gripe was the menu. We were dining pre theatre and so had the pre theatre standard menu. Whilst we understand that this will be more limited than a la carte, this was extremely restricted! There was only one meat choice - ok if you like duck but if not ( and it is not everyones preference), there was only fish or pasta. The seabream was delicious but my companions couldnt eat fish, so had to have duck. Wouldnt have been their first choice! Additionally when the duck arrived it was a tiny portion! Half a standard breast. Beautifully cooked but inadequate. The starters were pretty ropey- bruschetta was dry and tasteless, and the apple celery and walnut salad with a gorgonzola sauce was exceedingly dull. Could taste the dressing , almost couldn't see it either.
    Nice ambience, shame about the food!
