This is a pleasant established restaurant with attentive interesting waiters. Interesting Italian menue We had a very pleasant sunday lunch. Slightly querky but very pleasant.
Food was excellent, service slightly slow but we were in no rush.
A wonderful evening celebrating my pa's 88th birthday.
Food and atmosphere were fantastic. Very many thanks Germano.
A real authentic Italian restaurant!! The food was amazing, the service impeccable and the ambience amazing. I real gem. I would definitely recommend it.
I took my father in law for dinner and all was great.
Great value and great food. Service is a little eccentric but that just adds to the experience.
Good food coupled with outstanding service. Cosy atmosphere. What a great experience.
Lovely meal. Friendly staff. Perfect for Sunday lunch
Perfect place for Sunday lunch, delicious food and good service.
Very friendly little restaurant. Good food, good wine at reasonable price. Will go there again
Sadly a disappointing visit. Stale bread microwaved, unfriendly and patchy service. Not what you’d expect based on past visits.
Place was shut when we arrived on a Sunday evening about 8pm even though google said it was open till 10pm didn't even get a message apologizing
Over the years, Blades has built a reputation for consistently good food, with generous portions, in a relaxed setting.
Great authentic Italian food. Feels like home - take it from an Italian !
Owner made a fuss over we had booked a table or not (even though we had, and he had tables- a-plenty going spare). Needles to say, we had booked in advance.
Could have been as portrayed; a nice family restaurant, but so disappointing
Waiting staff could not understand the order - we knew the side orders would not arrive and sure enough they didn't. Sometimes this can be charming or amusing: on this occasion it was neither .
Main course - chicken breast was overwhelmed in mushroom sauce and the "wild mushrooms" were tame slices of small mushroom
My wife's seafood linguine - I could tell she was being polite. It was poor quality ingredients swimming in tomato sauce
Plenty of other restaurants in Putney so in we will go elsewhere in future
Great Putney local. Fantastic home cooked Italian food.
A lovely family style restaurant with great Italian food.
We came here for a "cheap and cheerful" supper with friends and thoroughly enjoyed the visit. Whilst it was not cheap (we did choose a good bottle of wine, twice) it was certainly good value and cheerful. The food was good and a bit different, especially the sea bass, and the service was efficient and friendly.
We would go again.
We were originally booked in to Hudsons across the road, after receiving a rather stand offish response on the phone, we decided to try blades. So glad we did, service, food and over all experience topped Hudsons hands down.
well done guys
A great atmospheric eatery; great, unobtrusive service and food, especially their Pastas, to die for. Thoroughly recommend this friendly restaurant.
I selected this restaurant at random from Open Tab;e to meet some friends for dinner.
The decor was very homely and the atmosphere had the right level of buzz with a mixture of couples and families having dinner and a broad range of ages.
There was plenty to choose from on the menu and a broad selection of Italian based dishes. between us we had steaks, chicken and fish and all was very good.
There was a broad selection of wines and the Chardonnay proved to be a good choice.
Prices were reasonable although service was automatically added to the bill - not an issue as we would have added a tip but it is possible for people to miss this and add an additional tip.
All in all good food in a nice venue.
Went here for my daughters birthday. Food is fantastic and staff very friendly. Will definitely return.
Just simply fabulous food, good portions, good value, great service and ambience.
I went to Blades with a few work colleagues for a Friday night dinner. We got there early (6.30pm) to avoid any rush, which we did, but the staff seemed to be scared of us, as they didn't approach us for about 20mins to take our order. Food was served swiftly and presented beautifully.
At the end of the meal, we had to ask for the bill twice as it seemed to be taking a while. When I asked the second time, I was snapped at a little and told it was coming.
Having said all that, the food, music and ambience was all perfect so I would absolutely return!
Went to Blades with mum, gran and fiancee for an evening meal, which we enjoyed very much! It is very rustic and a little old fashioned but they more than make up for it in charm and the quality of the food. The flavors in every dish were fantastic and will definitely be going back again!!
First time visit to Blades. Friendly staff and very enjoyable meal.
