My wife and I enjoyed a early dinner prior to going to a theatre nearby. Cafe Murano was just perfect for our needs , good cooking , a bottle of chianti classico , and above all great staff. Loved the tagliatelle which was freshly made next door. We also had a great table at the back of the restaurant which was private and in a corner. Bravo Cafe Murano.
Not the best value for money- everything was extra like pasta ! it cost away more than we could have afforeded
A restaurant that doesn't deserve its reputation. Bottle of white served warm: then waitress didn't seem to know what to do. Food disappointing. Noise level such that we could not hear each other across a very small table.
Lunch at Cafe Murano is always a treat. The food is excellent and the staff knowledgeable about the menu. The noise levels were high near the entrance, but the staff found us a ‘quieter’ table which was better.
Very friendly staff and lovely restaurant, will come again :)
Food was good. Service was good. Only negative very noisy that evening which makes a conversation difficult.
Was given an upstairs table would have preferred downstairs Asked could we sit in a corner table to be told was set for 3 but saw in tbe two corner table couples were seated in the tables we had asked for ? Upset my meal
Felt as we were two women we were told where we had to sit . Did inform the waiter to be told he would let tbe manager know .
We got chatting to a couple who were seated in a table for three and said they were given that as a two table no problems !!
It was lovely ambiance but it was bit noisy....and the table we were given were in the middle of isle and bit uncomfortable..
Another great meal at Cafe Murano- my go to place to catch up with friends
12/10! Absolutely amazing place!! Delicious food, genuinely first class service: faultless. Beef carpaccio, creamy buratta, mozzarella arancini, with foccacia: amazing start! We both had chicken Milanese (lovely), whilst our kids devoured the Tuscan sausage ragu rigatoni. Happy faces and clean plates all round. Delicious. Sensibly prices good wine list to boot! We visited for pre-matinee lunch on Sunday (10/3/19) with our two children: train into London was delayed so we explained on arrival that we were tight for time: the manager, his staff and (most importantly!) the kitchen went above and beyond to serve us quickly but also brilliantly professional whilst doing so: the front of house staff were a true credit to Cafe Murano. Can’t wait to go back!
Lovely place for a Sunday lunch get-together.
Service was excellent, unfussy but friendly and helpful, and the food was, on the whole, delicious. Small negatives were that one of the pasta dishes was very over salty and, for vegetarians, the choice is very cheese heavy.
A reliable favourite: excellent food in a buzzing, welcoming ambiance.
Expensive , small portions, noisy
Loved it! Will definitely be back highly recommend
This is my banker of a restaurant - food & service great
Absolutely fantastic experience & a wonderful end to our mini holiday. Thank you so much to all your wonderful staff
We sat at the counter and had a delicious cicchetti comprising arancini, grilled squid, cured ham and cod fritters followed by a whole sea bass for two with fennel and orange. Excellent, authentic Italian food; attentive service from our lovely bartender/waitress and a real buzzing ambience. The perfect place for our pre-theatre meal, but frankly, we would go out of the way to go there again for dinner alone. (The only downside was the squawking group of girls behind us - but their conversation did provide us with some entertainment...)
Very busy but unable to cope with demand. Greeted at the door by a look that asked what stone we had crawled out from. Lack of charm++++. Food was good but 30 minute wait from starter cleared to main course served was poor. ?Problem in kitchen. Another table had a problem . Unable to order dessert because of delay. Received an apology and free coffees. Very disappointed. Have been to Murano which was brilliant. Hasn't rubbed off on this outpost.
Lovely lunch, great food and service. Hope to be back
The food was excellent and I would definitely return. No vegan options and very few veggie options either but ok for meat eaters.
Well located close to a number of the Covent Garden theaters. Good range of food at reasonable prices. Attentive service.
Staff were very helpful. Food was fine but nothing exceptional. Table for 6 was a little cramped and the room was very noisy so it was difficult to hear people on the other side - despite it being small.
I would summarise it as a reliable venue with very good staff.
Great lunch with friends. Always excellent food & service.
Great spot for a relaxed glass of wine and bowl of pasta at the bar. Highly recommend.
Food was pretty average I had fish absolutely saturated with lemon juice
Good but slightly underwhelming.
Wonderful meal . Had the set lunch with recommend wine . Everything was just perfect. Would recommend and definitely would go again .
Really good food, nice decor, good location. A tad pricey but I think worth it
Amazing food! Can't recommend enough and lovely service too.
Impeccable food and service. And as we were seated upstairs not too noisy. Always a favourite and will continue to return.
Food was delicious and the service was nice and prompt for a pre-theatre dinner.
The ambience is perfect, a lovely friendly welcoming buzz, service was fantastic but the food was sadly very disappointing. It is bizarre for an Italian with such a good reputation to fail to even cook basic pasta well. And there is seemingly no attempt to make the plate of pasta look nice either. Perhaps the kitchen was having a bad day. I would try it again in the hope of a better experience but would not be confident recommending on the basis of the food.
Was pleasantly surprised by the overall dining experience .... food was well presented exceptionally tasty and the service was attentive without being intrusive. Would definitely visit again for a pre theatre meal.
Great location for pre-theatre dinner. Warm cosy space, attentive staff and great food.
The Food was very good and the service was exceptional. Even though our table was 30 mins late, the staff offered us some drinks and nibbles on the house to make up for the delay. I will go back!
We love cafe Murano , sadly on this occasion my antipasti and primi arrived at the same time.
A difficult taste experience...
This is a fantastic bistro style restaurant. It’s not flashy or pretentious. The food is unbelievably good.
great food and friendly service. We had a lovely meal with interesting food and a lively atmosphere and so central for Covent Garden and theatres - great experience all round.
Loved the food management and staff excellent very cosy and was not rushed .
But was a little disappointed as we chose the theatre deal which was 2 courses had just the 1 main meal and thought the dessert was included but was charged £13 for 2 dessert's dident mind paying as it was delicious but felt this should have been explained .
Lovely location and great atmosphere. Have been to Murano so was expecting something equally lovely. I think I just chose wrong off the menu as my fiends dishes were all nice. My squid sadly was chewy and my chicken was a little dry. We were given dessert menus, but then never asked for our choices, so we didn’t bother with dessert in the end.
