Hot off the grill came the appetiser of garlic & lemon prawns. These were tantalising and surprisingly huge prawns from what I have seen in London thus far, I could have easily been transported back to Australia with prawns this size.
Mains were very hearty in size (definitely worth that extra pound) with a rich, aromatic mincemeat filling, the ravioli proved to be impossible to defeat, as did the large Italian meatballs & pasta that my friend ordered. A word of recommendation: share a main.
The staff at the restaurant are very knowledgeable with wines too so they will gladly match a wine to your main dish.
If you can stomach a dessert (unfortunately I was unable to) the Italian gelatis are a hit with patrons and children as is the panna cotta. Do yourself a favour and head to Wapping and experience this Italian goldmine for yourself.
