Description: Based in the Royal York Hotel in the centre of Bath, we've created a restaurant with a distinctive new look inspired by modern Italian design. And with the help of our expert friends, including awarding-winning chef Theo Randall, we've created a menu that features a range of simple, classic Italian food and an all Italian wine list.

Myself and ten other ladies went to this place for a hen do recently (May 2014) Sadly the interior was the best thing about the restaurant. The staff were friendly enough, the service ok, but most of us (11 people) left some of the starter and thought it had no taste at all. I had a pizza and it was very thin on the topping, with lack of flavour or sauce. My friend had spaghetti, which looked very thin on the sauce and meat. As a restaurant, with competition left, right and centre, I cant believe they would take the risk of serving skimpy, tasteless food, yeah the interior was nice, but you don't eat the interior! its ok having a nice looking restaurant and good staff, its the food you remember, as that's the whole point of going there! I wouldn't go back there again, as I like to feel full and content and I didn't feel either.

We visited midweek for dinner during our short stay in Bath and were very impressed with the stylish interior of the restaurant.

We received excellent and very impressive service from a lovely member of the team, but then the restaurant was probably a little quiet.

The food as usual was enjoyable, if a little similar to other high street Italians.

Thank Awaters2013

we had an early midweek meal for two which was very good. Food was fast (there were only two other tables of two and one family there ) but starters were very good as was the main and dessert. Staff very attentive if a little too enthusiastic, but still good.

will try again at a weekend probably!!!

Good food and atmosphere!!!

We were encouraged to go inside by a young man outside offering slices of Pizza. Have eaten in Ask Cheltenham so knew roughly what to expect. Went in, place deserted, no staff or customers at 1255 on a Monday! Went back and grabbed the man from outside, who sorted us out. After that, drinks arrive quickly, as did our food, which was very good. £50 including a small tip for four which was good value.

Nice atmosphere. Attentive staff (but not too pushy). Very pleasant food. Several choices for vegetarian options. Reasonable prices.
Midweek visit for lunch so it wasn't too busy which was good.
