The atmosphere was really and also the red wine. However, we both took funghi fume fried gnocchi, and were really disappointed because of the quantity. It was like an entre, not a main dish, especially for this price.

Came here because of the good reviews. Unfortunately it took us on average 20-30 minutes to get each course. Aracini was tasty, duck confit was good. Don’t think I have the patience to come back again though.

We chose Gaslight on a whim. Having watched the original film and the later version with a very young Angela Lansbury. We were not disappointed. The atmosphere was cinema-themed and decorated with old movie equipment. Dark enough to be romantic. An intimate space. The staff...More
