I have had lunch and dinner here several times and have never been disappointed. This restaurant is closely supervised by Giuliano himself and this clearly shows.  The waiters are all smart in Royal Stuart tartan waistcoats and they provide a delightful 'Italian style' service to customers. The food is generally of a high standard and there is a good wine list with, obviously, an accent on Italian wines.   The price range is middle of the road and not expensive for the quality provided.   The restaurant is always busy - a good sign - so book ahead.  Many eat here before going on to The Playhouse  opposite for a show. This certainly makes for a splendid start to any outing.
