back to Canto for lunch and reassured to see some staples still there - prawn arancini but standout this time was the pigs cheek carbonara. Excellent; lightly cooked egg to break and mix around, deep flavoursome cheek. Good size portion as a main. Too full for pudding which was shame as it's normally very good here. Restaurant was moderately busy but it's spacious enough to feel private and hear what your guests have to say.

I think in that part of London there probably isn't a better Italian restaurant. Cooking is simple in style but excellent in quality. My guest started with the "ribs"- small, off the bone and sliced - polished off with ease. My Chicken Tagliata main course was excellent with crisp artichokes and a pearl barley "risotto" - we cooked in the Josper, moist and crisp at the same time. Excellent wine list, starting at some reasonable (for London) price points and understandably a wide selection of Italians, with plenty by the glass. Normally it's very busy and buzzy, it was a tad quiet after the Bank Holiday weekend but I doubt that will last - well worth a visit.

I went there for a birthday meal with my husband and some friends. The service was very relaxed and friendly. The food was lovely and the ambience was pleasant - we went on a Monday night and most other customers were city workers who appeared to be having some group meals. Staff were very nice throughout the evening

Lovely breakfast with clients. Nice ambience and great service. Food was lovely - one wrap seemed a lot crispier but still tasted great - wouldn't have noticed but we all had the same! Lovely cappuccino served too! Definitely recommend!

Although it was a nice restaurant, I ordered the special which was beef, it was 3 or 4 pieces of beef in a plate 'full' of mushrooms, it was nice enough but when the bill arrived £39 was too much, I could have had the steak, but the waitress never mentioned prices of the specials, I know its London but £160 for 2 courses for 2 people with no wine and just one vodka each was a little too much.
I ordered a vodka diet tall glass 2 ice cubes, no fruit and a straw for my partner but to make life easy I had the same, we got a glass rammed with ice, diet tonics, lemon and no straws, I had mine as im not fussed, they took the other back and now brought the diet coke with TWO lemons on a sideplate, a seperate glass full of ice and still no straw, 'really'... how hard can it be...

my appetiser was "Lamb Ribs" I was looking forward to fresh lamb meat on the bone...instead i got a little plate of thin slices of fatty meat totally drenched in gloopy salty sauce...the main course was a little better but again way too salty and everything was basically cheap ingredients dressed up to justify an unjustifiable price tag...the waitresses frowned and sneered at us...basically expensive rubbish and staff that cant be bothered...never again for me...

We had a lovely reunion dinner and bid January a glad farewell at Canto Corvino. Everything was perfect from the delicious food to the attentive and personal service we were provided. There was also an impressive vegan menu which included a delicious, flavoursome celeriac soup and the pasta is to die for. Great steak for those craving something more meaty! Thanks for helping us fight the winter blues Canto Corvino!

Cold and wet Saturday evening, but the welcome is warm and genuine. Excellent cocktails and great value during happy hours ( 4-8pm). all of the food was well cooked and well presented, very good choice of wine. The staff are very helpful and friendly, but maintain an air of professionalism at all times. Everything about the restaurant is high class.

Incredibly overpriced, unimaginative food and an even more overpriced wine list (500% markup is just excessive). For a £29 bowl of pasta, I’m expecting something more than just a bland carbonara which was under seasoned and lacking in depth. It’s not simple classic food and it’s not experimental and interesting - it’s just dull. The service was excellent though. Attentive without being imposing.

Service was slow and bordering on rude throughout the whole meal. Requests for water/bread were met with eye rolls from our waitress. Meals came out at different times (table of 8). Made to feel stupid for not guessing some ingredients of a dish that weren't listed on the menu (we'd just asked for the ingredient to be taken off the plate... didn't ask for a new dish).

We were told without warning that the kitchen was now closed but we could order desert if we did so RIGHT NOW. Our table was regularly bumped into, (knocking over glasses) by staff carrying around tables and chairs.

Lots of the food was tasty. One dish strangely full of cubes of fat. Table was a business lunch, and 4 people independently told the host the service was appalling.
