    Nothing special at all and overpriced. My goats cheese salad was disappointing. Whilst the slab of goats cheese was okay the actual salad just consisted of a pile of one kind of salad leaf with minimal dressing and a small roasted pepper on the side.

    Lovely Italian food, fresh pasta. The waiters are very helpful and friendly. I've been here many times before with both my work colleagues and daughters, it never fails to impress! A large restaurant with high ceilings and classy decor with rich colours and chandeliers, but even when full it is not noisy and you can enjoy a lovely lunch with friends. Enjoy!!

    We went to Cafe Concerto as a group of 10 people for lunch. The restaurant was only ever half full but it seemed to take a long time to get our food. Food was very good all round, only one person wasn't struck on their meal. Portions could have been slightly bigger. Overall it's reasonably price food in a nice setting. I'd go there again and recommend it.

    Dined on 13/3/2014
    The food was great given that we had a 50% discount on the ala carte items through our booking with Toptable. There was also live piano music and singing, which was nice, but made it a little difficult to chat over the music as we were sat right next to the stage. We found it extremely difficult to get attention from the service staff, and when we do, they always seem to be in a hurry to leave the table for something else, which spoilt our night a little.

    Dined on 19/2/2014
    Been here several times with friends and have never been disappointed. Unfortunately this time we had a hiccup. We ordered Parsnip & Potato soup but were served a Seafood soup. The giveaway was a large prawn in the bowl. We asked the waiter after a few mouthfuls & after he checked with the kitchen, we were told that they had run out of the soup we had ordered & were happy to change the soup for something else. I found the whole episode somewhat embarrassing and slightly concerning. What if my guest was allergic to seafood? The pasta main courses were good and overall the meal was satisfactory but the service left a little to be desired. We had to wait quite a while before we got the menus and a further while before our order was taken

    I been to CC previously and their pasta and desserts are amazing. This time round it was good, shame we couldn’t get discount on their desserts or drinks as previously it was part of the offer. I wouldn’t recommend the antipasti or not the mix fish grill that my friend had both were average. Overall it was okay especially with the discount and the service was good too.

    Booked here for a party of 8. The restaurant is nice, very cosy atmosphere. Very happy our the meal: try the spaghetti a la pescatore, chikcen and mushrooms rigatoni or pumpkin and goat cheese rigatoni. Desserts were delicious, although no many choices left so need to be quick! They are very tasty and obviously very popular!!! Special thanks to Livio, we had a good time!

    I ate here with a group of 8 with work. Initial service was fine, but slowed as the meal progressed. We had to grab the attention of the waiters. By the time we were ready to order coffees we nearly changed our minds, as it took some time to order. All round: good venue, good food, friendly but slow service.

    If you ignore the too loud, slightly drunk, live music which would have been pleasant enough if you could hear yourself over it, what really lets this plAce down. Is the service. There are ample staff who seem to busy themselves with to-ing and fro-ing, cleaning tables etc. well before paying attention to diners. The rubber squid did not help to recommend the place and, while the main courses were perfectly acceptable, we decided to skip dessert And get the bill after waiting more than 20 mins for somebody to come and take a dessert order. It is no wonder that ziZzi next door was fully booked.

    We randomly booked this restaurant as we wanted somewhere on the central line and the reviews were good! It doesnt dissapoint. The food is good and the waiters are great and convinced me to change my order for the wine - and I'm happy I did! There is live music playing so the ambience is wonderful too. I wish more restaurants did this. Would definitely go back again.

    Met a friend and her 6-month old baby at Friday lunchtime. Have been for dinner a couple of times before and liked the food and atmosphere, which is more cosy and festive than other Italian chains. Requested space for a baby buggy in the booking, which was accommodated. Overall, another positive experience here, with attentive service, despite being a busy lunchtime.

    From the taste card they offer 50% off which is a great bargain and they didn't sacrifice any food qualities by doing that discount, I would strongly recommend you to go from Monday to Thursday then you can enjoy that 50% off (not friday to sunday unfortunately), for two people the bill is around 40 pounds after discount which i think is reasonable enough for what you get.

    Dined on 9/11/2013
    Booked Concerto with Toptable after choosing a St Paul's area Hotel for my wife's Milestone Birthday weekend. We went to a matinee performance of the Jersey Boys in the West End. On emerging from the performance I was extremely pleased I had booked the city venue for the evening meal, the West End was heaving. We had ample time to have a wash and brush up at the Hotel and make the short walk to the venue in time for a 7.30pm booking. We really enjoyed the food at Caffe Concerto and the service was attentive without being overbearing. We both said we would have no hesitancy in returning again. Saglant

    The service was very poor, waited half hour to be asked what we wanted to order, we ordered 3 cream teas and the cakes came 20 minutes after the tea so had to order more tea then that came 10 mins after we had the cakes, we had to ask for our last order which was a slice of gateaux it did not even have to be cooked, so why was the wait so long???? one of our party had to leave to catch a train so we had to cancel one cream tea, over all service was very poor would never go there again!!!! our visit was on the 9/11/2013 table booked for 1.30pm, I might ad that ttere was also a group of ladies who also complained to he manager so it was not just us!!!!!!

    We were 3 ladies on a day out celebrating 50 years of friendship. We meet up every year in London and this time we chose Caffe Concerto, New Change for our lunch as we used to work (which was where we met) in the building which used to stand on the site now occupied by No.1 New Change. We had a lovely welcome and were looked after the whole time we were there. We were not rushed and just sat and chatted over our meal. As a surprise we were treated to a lovely bottle of champagne by the daughter of one of us, which made it really special. All the staff were very good to us. We would certainly go there again.

    We has been to The Globe & needed the Central Line home so Cafe Concerto, One New Change was ideally situated. As a group of 7 we were welcomed and given a nice table. We,we're able to use our Tastecards which was a bonus. We had all sorts of dishes - pasta, risotto, salads and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the food. The desserts were beautiful pastries and gateaux, all delicious. We will return when in the area.

    I normally meet up with 3 ladies every two months and this year we have mostly eaten here. It's a lovely place with great food to offer but it's now time for a change. The last couple of visits the food has been returned cold and unfortunately the service isn't how it used to be. But I may have eaten there too many times so do go for yourself and try. A great menu is on offer and the deserts are to die for.
