super friendly staff. felt so happy to be here! we had dinner before theatre, will go again! homemade spinach tortelloni, tasty salad, good wine. thank you!
We had a wonderful meal before going to a show and it was ideal. The food was delicious and the service was outstanding.
We had an amazing family luch. Esch course was full of flavour and we could not finish ir. Service wad attentive and friendly. Was recommended to us and i would recommend too.
Wonderful lunch, great service and food!
I was meeting a friend for lunch, we both came from out of town. She had eaten here before and hoped I’d like it.
The food was really excellent, the mushroom arancini tasted more full of mushroom flavour than the most flavoursome mushroom ever! Everything was lovely but the lemon tart....! Sooooo full of flavour, the pastry melted in the mouth and the filling exploded to give layers of taste. Exquisite.
Also the service was exemplary. Thinking of another reason to visit!
Delicious food and charming staff and a very good place to eat before the opera
good menu choices, especially the first courses, and helpful staff. a very good post-theatre option
Excellent modern Italian food. Portions not huge, but everything well-cooked.
Service was very efficient. Will be dining there again.
Delicious pre theatre dinner. Enjoyed the 3 corse menu. I had the most refreshing starter of shaved fennel, orange & mackerel. Lovely & light, but a little mean with the mackerel - only 3 tiny bites. Staff were very friendly. Great Italian food in pleasant relaxed atmosphere.
Our table was booked at 17:30 for a pre opera meal.
We were warmly welcomed by the hostess on the door and as we were shown to our table, other staff acknowledged us in a friendly. welcoming manner.
The food was perfectly cooked, beautifully presented and served in a timely and pleasant way.
We were also finished in good time to arrive comfortably at the Royal Opera House (just around the corner ) for the performance.
Lovely venue, staff were great, food was delicious.
Very disappointing. Goodness it was only pasta and it didn't even taste fresh. We all found our various dishes tasteless. The mackerel was served as it was, unseasoned and frankly boring. The spaghetti puttensca was too soft, the sauce tasteless and was unable to finish, as was every other persons meal. We all agreed we could do better at home. The chef needs to get some passion back. Wouldn't go again, as there are some great italian trattorias and restaurants offering far superior food.
Very good food and service, a quiet place where you can hear each other talk.
Breakfast was average but coffee was good. Poached eggs would have been better described as hard boiled eggs.
The service was excellent, the food was absolutely delicious. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.
Nice and relaxed atmosphere. Fairly limited menu, especially the set menu. Pleasant enough if a bit over priced.
Delicious food and exemplary service, Cafe Murano is one of my favourite restaurants in Covent Garden. A little noisy to begin with but soon settled down to a lovely evening with good friends.
A great place with excellent food
Excellent service - dined as a group and we were missed a few times by staff when we arrived and eventually asked to be seated, however FoH were very apologetic once they realised, and brought some arancini by way of apology. Food was lovely although I am unlikely to dine from the set menu next time as it was very 'bare' and tiny portions. I think the main menu would be better value for money.
Excellent food and staff hide behind the door in this handy covent garden Italian. We had a wide range of food and were delighted
Hake withh cockcles is excellent, great people too
We had a lovely meal though the rabbit could have been a little less salty. Service was excellent, as usual.
Fantastic pre-theatre meal, great service and value
Delicious food and attentive, friendly but not overbearing service. It's a real pleasure to dine at Café Murano.
We were at the restaurant for a pre theatre meal and enjoyed the daily menu although it was quite limited in terms of choice. Service was attentive and efficient. Brownie points for lots of refills of water without being asked.
Too warm inside aircon not working. But moved to table near door and it was more comfortable. Manager very helpful and experienced. Good food and service. We had enjoyable evening with friends.
Loved the food and the vibrancy of the place. The food was outstanding. It was full of flavour but not overly fancy. The whole experience was quietly sophisticated.
This is the second time we'd been to Cafe Murano and it did not disappoint. The food was excellent and the staff attentive and aware of what was going on. When we arrived the music was exceptionally loud but when we went to speak to someone about it, we were told that the server had already asked that the volume be turned down. Would definitely recommend it, and would definitely go again.
Went here for lunch with a good friend I hadn't seen in a while. Quick, friendly and Impeccable service. Greatly enjoyed the food, consisting of unfussy, well-prepared dishes; often Italian-inspired. Strikes a nice balance between formal and informal. A few tables are available for eating outside. Recommended.
Excellent venue for pre theatre dining; fabulous food and just a 2 minute walk to the ROH!
Made last minute reso for lunch and had no issue getting one for our needed time. All staff members we on point, sharp on knowledge and manners. Food was incredible. Ambiance was great and at peak time, noise level was a bit on a higher side but not bothersome for our business meeting. Cod was cooked to perfection, presentation was great, espresso served at perfect temperature and desserts were fresh and delicious. Thank you for a great experience.
Service was excellent. It was a quiet lunchtime so a bit lacking in atmosphere. Highlights for me were the salt cod fritters, hot, light with lemon and parmesan, and a wonderful sharp lemon tart to finish. The courses were served very promptly so while it didn’t feel too rushed, a bit more time in between each course would have been appreciated in order to savour what we had just enjoyed. I would be very happy to eat there again and interested to experience an evening meal.
Good service. The food was good but the portions are a bit small - so in case you are hungry look for an alternatives.
Terrific food and wine selection, but the service wasn't quite as good as the food or wine.
Service lack of professionalism.
Food overall ok,
lemon tart,one of my favorite,was made with low quality butter,and you could taste it,left it all.
Service did not worry to ask why I left the tart.
Over all food ok.
Really enjoyed the food freshly prepared and served....very tasty combinations. The staff were very helpful even though we were the last lunch service of the day. Good wine selection and ambience
Great atmosphere and decor with wonderful food! Totally lived up to expectations.
£60 a head for three courses and drinks and wine , pretty good for Covent Garden I think.
Food was exceptional. Definitely will be going again.
Great meal- simple, yet delicious and flavorful spaghetti dish. We planned to see a show after dinner and it was the perfect meal before the theater with easy walking distance to the theater.
The restaurant ignored my husband’s nut allergy which we pre warned them about and reminded them constantly through the meal. They served nuts hidden inside a “nut free” dish and then argued that pine nuts are seeds and not nuts. My husband knows they’re nuts as he almost died from eating them 15 years ago. The waitress was smug and slow and we would never return which is a shame as we were hosting my in-laws and have had several meals there before.
