This is top-class Italian cooking, at very reasonable prices (£25 for three courses). The restaurant itself is somewhat understated (you might even walk past if you didn't know it was there), which could explain why it hasn't yet become unbearably busy. But it will.
The food is a delight: try the seafood ravioli for your second course and the either the sea bass or pork belly for your third. Actually, try anything - I can't imagine they cook anything less than perfectly.
Don't worry about leaving space for a pudding, though - eat one anyway, however fat you're feeling. And let the waiters talk you through the wine list - they'll pick the right wine for your meal.
