This is one of my “go to” restaurants in London and it never disappoints. The menu is ever changing and inventive. The ceviche is delicious- probably the best I have ever had. The staff is helpful in suggesting wines and food pairings.

The food was tasty but I think particularly over priced. The service was okay, although there was no complimentary bread. When the bread we ordered came out, it was one slice each, with no butter or olive oil. When we request these, the waitress seemed baffled. However, a manage (I think) made an effort to meet our requests.

Here for a business dinner with colleagues from Greece. Shared starters of mozarrella, beef carpaccio and, the best, Arancini (2 per plate so buy 2 plates). Foe mains the quail fell of the bone nicely, the seafood part of the seafood and bortelli beans was tender and tasty. Being greek my companions preferred their meat medium/well (don't go there) and it was served, apparently, perfectly to their liking! As usual the desserts impress with the chocolate in a cup still my favourite. Massive wine list with a helpful sommelier to assist. All round a great evening.

Very pushy service, we sat down and had a catch up prior to ordering food, Normally you order a drink and get some time to browse the menu, the waiter asked us 6 times before we were ready to order. I had a bottle of water with me as I am 8 months pregnant and the manager of the restaurant asked to take it away.... also one of the warmest days on London. Been once before with my husband and it was lovely. Today was a big disappointment - will not return or recommend.

My third visit to Canto Corvino and I have never been disappointed. Tucked away in Artilery Lane en route to Spitalfields, this restaurant has everything. The food is to die for with some unusual Italian dishes. I always try something new when I eat here. This time I had lunch with a friend and we just wanted a quiet time. It was a Monday so not too busy.
At the beginning of June I celebrated my 70th birthday in the private room with 10 of my dearest friends. The evening was amazing. The food of course was perfect and the staff helped to make my evening one that was extremely special and unforgettable. Thank you all!

My Friend and I were very disappointed by the staff. Cold, not very welcoming and we had an issue with the bill. The waitress did not present bring us the set menu for which the Open Table had an offer. We ordered from the only menu available genuinely believing that the offer was applying to this. When we flagged it to the waitress when she brought the bill, she and the staff clearly questioned our honesty. Food was average. The bread was not good and we had to insist to get some. The dish of my friend came cold. Beautiful space but it’s a shame that the service ruined the experience.

I didn’t realise that they only served Brunch on a Saturday lunch time. The menu was mainly egg based which was a big issue as 2 of a party of 6 had an egg allergy. The alternative was a not very nice burger. Will not be going back because this put a damper on our once a year cousin get together as we live in different part’s of the U.K.

I love this restaurant but was incredibly disappointed on Saturday evening ... starters were great but when it came to our main courses someone in the kitchen had added way, way too much salt to the meatball sauce and the courgette fries ... we couldn’t eat the courgettes!! Such a shame! Everything else is top notch here. We mentioned it to our waitress but no further action provided ...

A good place. A good twist to the traditional Italian cuisine that manages to keep the original flavours but makes them more international. I went to this place twice in a week, once for work and once with family and the service and food were consistently good both times.

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.

Canto Corvino proved to be a good location for a business lunch. The food and service were both very good and the noise level was reasonable.
