A word from Artigiano
Tucked away in leafy Belsize Village, Artigiano has not only become a favourite among the affluent locals, but it's high on the list of discreet party venues for celebrities, many of whom regularly dine there. Modern Italian cuisine, welcoming service and a thoroughly contemporary and uncluttered design all contribute to the ongoing success and appeal of Artigiano. A glass roof at the rear allows light to pour in and the glass frontage folds away to open the restaurant up, creating perfect al fresco moments at the first sight of sunshine.

    We have been to Artigiano many times and all 3 of us were disappointed on this occasion. The place lacked a bit of 'control' for lack of a better word. The service and food were not up to our previous visits and the menu has significantly changed. They used to do an unusual starter which we had not seen anywhere else and my wife loves it. Nowhere to be seen. All in all we now would not recommend this restaurant on this evenings meal. The food we did have was okay, not spectacular and not we (all 3) feel up to previous standard. Let's hope this is just a blip in the history of the restaurant.

    A friend recommended me this lovely Italian gem of a restaurant. Food was really hearty and authentically Italian - I ordered the fettucine with beef and barolo ragu, which just melted in my mouth. The wine (Gavi) was perfect too and they gave us very generous 'small' glasses! What finished it off nicely was the riserva grappa - highly recommend! The only criticism is that it was quite a noisy restaurant, not necessarily from the number of diners but more the way the room was arranged, it just seemed to amplify noise! I will return for sure but with a group of friends or family, I wouldn't recommend Artigiano for a romantic meal.

    My husband & I thoroughly enjoyed our meal on Saturday night. The moment we walked in we were asked where we wanted to be seated. The food was outstanding. Our meal was not rushed and we never once felt like we needed to vacate our table once finished. Restaurant was very busy which can only mean it is very popular. We will definitely be going back.

    We had dinner on Friday night. The live jazz was wonderful, and created a brilliant atmosphere. The staff were very attentive, as was the owner of the premise. I also thought the food was excellent. It is rare to find a restaurant outside of zone that serves good quality food combined with an ambience that is a delight to be in. We could have stayed for hours drinking and whiling the night away. We will definitely return.

    Original and simple assembly of pleasing classic Italian flavours. Booked offer with set menu, but menu not published on opentable and turns out it is disappointingly limited, forcing a la carte on arrival.

    It is always a pleasure to visit Artigiano. Why visit the West End when you have this genuine, high quality Italian Restaurant locally. The food is always delicious, the portion size is very satisfying.There is always a buzz and you leave with a sense of well being and determination to come back again soon

    We've been to some wonderful Italian restaurants in Italy and the U.S., and Artigiano was up there with many of them. Excellent food (we had pasta and a really well-prepared Branzino). Good salads, first-rate desserts and a reasonable wine list. Superb service -- attentive but not intrusive. Very reasonable and interesting wine list. Very pleasant atmosphere inside. On a quiet and beautiful street in Swiss Cottage.

    We had a family birthday dinner with some very specific requirements. One of the party had severe allergies to many foods and the restaurant catered impeccably for these needs with excellent liaison beforehand and care throughout. We asked them to make a birthday cake for dessert which they did and it was delicious. Everything we asked for was delivered to a very high standard, with excellent service, care and attention to detail.

    A perfect place for a special occasion - beautiful, spacious, airy and with open doors on the veranda, so one can sit pretty much outside if good weather. Liked the food also, and v pleasant atmosphere and service. A bit pricey though I thought for just a normal meal out - but I will certainly want to go back time and time again for a special occasion. Highly recommended.

    We arrived at 9.45 as planned and the service was attentive and speedy-ideal at that time. The food was good, hot and tasty and no feeling of last dish out of the kitchen. Our only problem was that we were sitting next to the jazz group (not bad )and could not hold a conversation, we had just seen a great play and really wanted to discuss it. We had no warning on the booking that jazz would be playing.

    Having read some of the reviews I was hoping for some outstanding food, particularly as I love Italian food and lived there for a few years. My starter of calamari was outstanding, fried in a very light batter. My main which was veal was over seasoned the sauce was too salty and too rich and I love salty food generally. My partners sea bream main was lacking in flavour. That said, I would still return for the great ambiance (it was a Saturday night so very busy) and try one of the pasta or risotto dishes. I think the Friday night would be fun as it is their jazz night.

    Visited Artigiano on 15 February. As usual the calamari starter was superb but a bit disappointed with the main course of liver I ordered on this occasion. I know it can be a bit of a hit and miss affair with liver but my portion seemed to be half liver and half tubes (yuk) and I spent a lot of time chewing it and trying to discretely dispose of those bits I could not eat. I have ordered this dish before here and it has been good but this time, not so good!!! In its favour everything else was fine but when presented with the bill, they quickly snatched it away from me as they had forgotten to include a glass of wine - understandable if it had been a bottle of Bollinger but it was all of £6.

    Service veyr polite, effiecient and willing, but to be honest almost too prompt and effieient in that we did not have a chance to drink a fifth of our cocktail before the hors d'oevre was brought to the table. There was insufficient wait between the courses, which would have been ideal for a business meal but it was supposed to be a relaxed evening dining experience. Both bread and oil were whipped away without enquiry as whether we still wanted them. However in all fairness this was probably all in the interests of being efficient.
