Sadly it was not a great experience. We were herded along the wall on the right as you walk into the restaurant. There was a canopy of plastic wisteria above your head which I think is to dull the noise as the ceilings are high, which did not work. It actually makes the area feel cramped and claustrophobic, or it could just have been too many tables in such a small space! The service was poor and we had to wait 20 minutes before receiving our drinks, this was the same for others around us who were constantly asking if their drinks were coming. One child sighed 'Finally' when his coca cola arrived (this made me smile). People were also being served things they had not ordered as the waiter seemed to be taking orders by memory rather than writing/or keying them onto his pad! We were served by four different people which sounds fine but when you ask for something and do not see the item arrive, you cannot ask the same person as they seem to disappear! We had ordered a starter and main - The waitress cleared the plates which the starters were served but, left the 'used' cutlery on the table so we asked for clean cutlery when our main was served - this was a new experience for me, along with tissue thin paper napkins in a London restaurant and is not one to be repeated! The pizza served to my husband was soggy which was not good as when he picked up a slice to eat the ingredients slid off! The pasta dish I had was unfortunately cold. There was a party of some kind being set up at the back where the toilets are and to say there was everything, everywhere is putting it mildly. Boxes, bags and peacocks were all over the floor creating an assault course or trip hazard depending on your point of view and agility.

The service was good and food was delicious. I had the ossobuco and it was cooked to perfection. The price is what you can expect when severed with high quality food. Thank you for a lovely dinner.

I organised a party for 40 people. We had a blast. The staff were exceedingly nice, thoughtful and accommodating. The venue is gorgeous! Highly recommend for events.

Booked a table for 8:30 but we were so exhausted we showed up at 7 to see if we could bring our reservation forward. They obliged and we were seated. The service was quick and efficient and the food was delicious. I would definitely recommend this place.

Yesterday, I had a ticket for a show and wanted to get something to eat before. I did have a specific restaurant in mind, however as I was about to walk past Granaio, I stopped to have a look at their menu and decided to go in. The restaurant is beautiful inside and very clean. I ordered a Salmon starter and Rib Eye Steak for my main, both of which were delicious and the steak was perfectly cooked to my liking (pictures below). The staff were lovely, led by Simone and I cannot wait for my next visit.

Great good, great staff. Genuinely surprised, we didn't book it and thought it may have been a tourist trap. We couldn't have been more wrong. The maitre d was superb. We could see that he was also training new staff, and he was as kind and thoughtful with them as he was with our party. Go and enjoy.

Servizio impeccabile e materie prime d’eccellenza cucinate a dovere. Un vero ristorante italiano in terra straniera Grazie per la piacevolissima serata PS : For those that expect to dine in a resturant of this level expecting Mc Donalds prices perhaps should consider to continue with fast food and don’t bother.
