    the staff was very friendly and accomodating but sometimes a bit slow through no fault of there own, the place when we arrive was very full. The food was great, the portions very generous. the only item we had that wasn't as good as the rest was the prawns, they just tasted quite plain, the rest of the food was outstanding and well presented. The size of the place is great but did find it quite cramped as they fitted far more tables into the venue so it's more appropriate for a lively night out with a group of friends as opposed to out on a date when needing one on one time. Definitelty would revisit the place though as the whole experience was good.

    Brought all food out as it was done in kitchen. No timing at all, so several dishes were cold by time we got to them. Pasta dishes overrated. Positives: great location for theater and ambiance

    Each plate was beautiful to view. The portions were mostly generous enough for 3 of us to share. Every dish was different and delicious. We especially enjoyed the zucchini fritì, the asparagus, the crab salad, and the black pasta with crab filling. The special dessert plate was excellent too.

    Great food . Service was hectic . Cutlery dropping. Bins being dragged in the main restaurant from the bar during service. I was there for a business lunch. Waiters were talking over tables . A real shame because the food was absolutely lovely .

    The food is good quality and the setting is lovely. The ‘tapas’ approach to Italian dining means you end up with a large bill and a relatively empty tummy. Overall though a good dining experience.

    Good. But not worth the prices for the size of dishes. They claim 4 or 5 medium dishes will do 2 people. Make that 6 or 7 when you look at the menu. The cheese board was very disappointing. Three tiny pieces of cheese, one totally tasteless. And served with 4 JACOBS crackers - in an Italian restaurant?! Absurd. You could buy much better crackers at any supermarket.

    It wasn’t explained the food is served like tapas so we waited 25 mins for the sea bass after the rest of the food came. The risotto was cold probably didn’t help that it was spread flat on a plate. We asked if 4 of the plates on the special menu would be enough and was told yes, they were only like starter size portions when they came. We had gone for tea and this wasn’t enough. Wished we had of eaten off the the main menu. We are only small eaters and left feeling like we had eaten starters and a dessert only. Very disappointing as I had booked it based on reviews. We were rushed as well. We never asked for our bill and they brought it when we hadn’t even finished our wine then the next thing we had a card machine shoved under our nose. Been to San Carlos many times and enjoyed but would never go here again

    The food comes in very small portions, the waiters serving us were very rude and just seemed as though they didn’t like us at, which made for a good running joke but not a pleasant experience.

    Very nice experience other than being overcharged at the end. Went with my mother and wife/child today. A mixup which got confusing and we ended up paying £151 instead of the £141 (which did include 15% service charge already). The extra tenner left a bitter taste but other than that the restaurant and indeed the service was very good.

    Excellent location to Theatre Land. Felt that the menu choice was not explained clearly enough as there were three of us but some items served were just two so how do you share ie two small scallops between three people? (just one example) Lovely relaxed atmosphere, did not feel at all rushed.

    Excellent eating place, we booked for a pre theatre lunch, had the tapas menu, good value and extremely tasty, our only regret was not being able to spend longer there, our train arrival time and show start time meant we were a bit pushed, but certainly would return.
