We came in early for a pre-theatre meal and went for the set menu. We’re really glad we did! The staff were attentive (at just the right level), the food was lovely and we will definitely be coming back. Such a good find!

We were eating pre-concert so a bit too early to start in a really convivial atmosphere but by the end of our meal we were sorry to be leaving. Staff always delightful and the anniversary liqueur was a lovely touch.

This restaurant was recommended by my daughter. Lovely food and friendly staff but unfortunately they seemed to have little knowledge of the menu. Started with a delicious salt cod tempura and followed with an octopus main which was nice. Dessert was apple and cinnamon cake which in reality was a little dry. All in all, I'd go back but it's not the best I've been to.

The food was very good. We ordered the bruschetta and calamari as starters and a pasta and pizza as mains. The Baba was a delicious end to our meal. The service, by Shehan, was excellent. Good value and a must repeat.

Small restaurant opposite market. Smallish menu, mainly pasta or sous vide meat/fish. Generous helpings of delicious pasta. Pistachio prawn and lemon fettuccine was excellent.

Very friendly and helpful service, especially as some of our party arrived very late - we were not made to feel we were causing trouble, and food was brought very swiftly when the time came. Delicious seafood, home-made pasta and pizza.

他社との懇親会に利用。料理は素晴らしく、ワインも美味しい。普段食べれないパスタも豊富。
イタリアの方も多く見えてたので地元の人からも愛されているのだと思う。
サービスはもう少し丁寧だとなお良い

Welcoming staff, great food and drink. I met with a vegetarian friend here and we were both able to find something. I actually liked all three courses which is saying something for me. Well done chef & staff in general.

Really enjoyed our evening. We reserved last minute on OpenTable for a large number on a Tuesday. The restaurant ended up filling. Food was really nice and service was attentive. A warm experience.

A range of interesting Italian dishes that are less common. Beautifully presented, and served.
Price is a little high, but it's an experience dining, rather than cheap pasta.

The service was a bit slow. Took more than one hour to get our mains and we had to then rush off and skipped dessert .
The food was nice and the restaurant is very nice too

Our usual time for dining at Apulia is for a pre-Barbican meal and this was also the case this time but we booked early enough to have a relaxed meal and had time for dessert. The food and service were excellent as usual and we enjoyed some nice wine by the glass. It's one of our very favourite Italian restaurants with interesting menu and special choices.

The food was nice. Traditional Puglia dishes. Quite at 6.15pm, busy by 7.15pm when we left on a Thursday night. Tables are very close together so it's hard to get in and out during your meal. Nice meal for two + a bottle of wine and dessert was c.£80. Unlimited filtered water refills for £1 pp which is good for the environment

We were seated next to a large party of 10 people which made it very noisy in a small restaurant. Pleasant service and good pizzas but prices on the high side, suppose this is because of the location.

Food and wine were very good. The staff were all very attentive. We somehow managed to miscalculate our bill and ended up paying a lot more than needed. Neither us nor our waiter noticed, however, the manager quickly realised and promptly rectified this. Would definitely recommend to friends and would return for the tiramisu alone.

First time there and thought the food was exceptional. This little place is punching well above its weight. The day’s special - fresh lobster spaghetti - was terrific. Ambience, service and wine selection were all on point. Would recommend for both a business or personal occasion.

When we visited for a Sunday lunch, the restaurant was empty. Menu is very authentic; service swift. I wouldn't say the pizza was very authentic but it tasted good enough. We also ordered pasta and steak, both of which were delicious. Very close to Barbican Centre.

The staff were very friendly and attentive but the food was so salty i could barely eat it. I didnt complain as i was out for a special meal with my mum and didnt want to make a scene (we were also going to a concert so didnt have a lot of time)- and hey im british. Such a shame as i was really looking forward to regional italian food. Good concept/poor execution. #basicerror Chefs need to taste their food before they serve it.
