Great spot, but never seemed particularly busy. Shad Thames is a strange place - all those affluent residents, but still unable to keep places like this, or even their restaurant, busy. Lets hope the restaurant doesn't follow.
I believe that the change of ownership of the freehold of the Circle complex meant that rents for the retail units went up. Apparently, this squeezed them out. It's a real shame - lovely little business.
I have always understood that it was a very nice restaurant indeed, but I did find it looked quite expensive. Eating out has become quite competitive and, although nowhere 'cheap', certainly more affordable than the prices on the menu of Tentazioni. This may be one of the reasons they are out of business.
