Really loved the atmosphere service and food were excellent. Great deserts
This was our second time dining at Giotto Restaurant. The food and service were excellent, love the location, and especially love the ambiance. They have a pianist! Very nice!
We had a very nice pizza here but it wasn’t worthy of a mention in dispatches. Not bad prices. Central location . Pleasant and efficient staff
1st class,enjoyed every minuet,.Excellent owner and staff.
Had dinner here pre-theatre: excellent service, very friendly staff, tasty food, great location and very reasonable price.
Good location, food was ok. Good selection on menu. Service a little slow.
Food was quite nice, good ambiance but slow service.
Two of us dined here before going to the theatre. It is a small and cosy restaurant. When we arrived (5:30pm) the restaurant had just a couple of tables in use, however, this soon changed and became busy very quickly. We enjoyed our food (although I would choose a different dish next time as, to me, the salmon was too citrusy). Our starter was served quite quickly but it did take some while before our main arrived. Ok, the two of us used this time to catch up but....we felt the wait didn't need to be as long. All in all though, we had a nice meal........and the coffee is excellent!!
When we arrived we were asked if we were going to the theatre. We were advised our menu choices would take time to cook. In the event it was all fine - the food was good and fresh and we arrived at the theatre in time to see the show - so well done all round!
Nice place for good value food, loved the live pianist.. calamari starter was really tasty, as was pizza.. the chicken alfredo pasta was a bit bland, but overall good experience, service prompt and friendly
Nice meal before a trip to the theatre, service was excellent and the piano player was a nice touch. I thought it was good value given its location.
Very good for pre theatre meal. Plenty of selection of dishes with option of a set menu too. Nice atmosphere with pianist playing in the background. Would definitely recommend and will return again soon.
Read the previous reviews and most were positive so was looking forward to it but ended up being very disappointed. Starters were good (Bruschetta and Tricolore salad) but 3 of the 4 main course, all veal, had to be sent back because they were barely luke warm. On return mine was not much better and even the side portion of spaghetti wasn't hot - how difficult can it be to plunge the pasta in a pot of boiling water for a minute or 2 to heat it up?? Won't be going back!!!!!
As lovely as the staff were, our pizza was slightly burnt but they did change it as straight away without fuss which was great!
This was a regular lunch nothing amazing, just nice food and worth the money.
The restaurant had a fawlty towers ambience but the food itself was good! Service was a little forgetful but not a disaster!
Lovely food. Staff friendly. The service was a little slow that was the only thing. Good Value for money.
Went here for pre theatre meal. Giotto gave me a baaaad tummy. Had to leave the theatre mid act...
The food was lovely, starters, mains and one tiramisu to share. Service was excellent, didn't have to wait for anything beyond the norm. Pleasant live music which wasn't too much or too loud. Only a stone's throw away from the Shaftesbury Theatre. Would definitely come here again.
Put a seat in a corner,starter was Luke warm,main was ok,music was terrible asked for italian music waitress looked at the waitress and laughed.
i went because there were good ratings on top table but all four of us found it totally underwhelming. Dull place. Mediocre food
We went to Giotto's because of a pre-theatre meal and enjoyed the food very much. Excellent location for the theatre and I would go there again. I will also recommend the restaurant to other friends who wish to eat before they take in a show.
I do not like the fact that you have to write a specific number of words. This annoys me very much and I was about to leave the website. I will do this only one time and will not give another review if this is not changed immediately. You will miss out on lots of reviews because of it!!!
A lovely friendly restaurant with a good menu. Great choice of food beautifully presented and cooked. Very good value too. I will hopefully return there again
staff very friendly without being intrusive food very nice and homely cooking
would recomend this place and go again.
found the giotto restuarant very easily ordered meals and drinks which arrived promptly thoroughly enjoyed the whole meal would definitely go again on return to london
Nice place to eat if they gave service up larger meals, (E.G. more veg)
Beer and wine to expensive for an Italian restaurant.
I visited Giotto on Tuesday 31st May with my niece. We had been to the Theatre and we went for a post theatre dinner. We enjoyed good food which was well priced with good service and really enjoyed the pianist - lovely background music. I would go again and I will recommend to friends.
We had a post theatre meal here and whilst the eating menu is extensive, the drinks menu isn't as wide ranging, just two lagers of choice of two rose wines. My partner wishes he had a starter as he found the main was not quite enough, think we are used to being served platefuls of pasta! Overall, we liked the piano music, although a good guitar would be great too, the staff were professional, just think it needed a bit more 'ambience' to make this restaurant a 5 star dining experience.
Quick friendly service, just what was needed for pre-theatre. Vegetables were a little cool, but other than that food was great and pianist adds a nice touch to the vibe. Second time eating here and would definitely go back.
Great choice of food and every dish was absolutely delicious. Those with special dietary needs were deLt with quietly and efficiently. We all want to come again on our next visit to London. Great value also
We were warmly welcomed by the owner of this restaurant. The food was very good and served in good time before our theatre show. There was an in-house pianist which added to the occasion.
I would definitely return to this restaurant if in the area.
We used this restaurant as a quick solution pre Theatre and it worked very well. Friendly staff that met the challenge of two courses in 45 minutes ensured that we were not late for the Theatre. Convenient location to the Shaftsbury and Dominion Theatres
Unique pizza, friendly staff and a pleasant atmosphere.
Lovely place to enjoy good quality, good value, Italian food. Don't be put off by brightly lit sign outside (not posh) because when inside they take good care of you in their relaxing environment accompanied by live piano music. A nice surprise and cheap and cheerful
Lovely little restaurant in the heart of London close by to the main shopping areas. We had 3 courses, all very good and a couple of drinks each for a total bill of £60, which we thought was very reasonable for that area of London. Staff very efficient and friendly. The piano player was a pleasant back ground to a very enjoyable meal. Will go back there next time we are in London.
We visited Giotto on Christmas Day - one of the few open restaurants at noon. Really cheerful service from people who were working on a holiday. I will plan to visit again...
Not what we expected really for a Saturday evening. Fairly empty and if we weren't tired and hungry we probably would have left. The food, to be fair, was ok although one of the mains was over cooked so the member of our party concerned had to wait, then eat her main while we all looked on, finished. Few people came in but it didn't do anything for the atmosphere. The pianist was on and off and just played fairly depressing tunes. The staff was fairly polite and efficient but I wouldn't recommend it.
Had a meal here before going to the theatre , which was a short walk away.
We really enjoyed the food and the staff was really pleasant.
The only thing was the place felt cold like they had no heating., we was sat near the window which had a bit of a chill.
This was a group of friends in London for the weekend, we had looked at location of this restaurant, the menu looked good and varied and the reviews seemed fine. We ordered garlic bread to share which was excellent. When our main courses came (5 different meals) they were lukewarm to cold. We called over the waiter who was very polite and apologetic and the meals were taken away. When the meals were returned to our table they were only marginally warmer than the first time. On my plate only the potatoes were what I would consider hot. Again we called over the waiter who could not apologise enough and was very concerned. The waiter had offered us drinks and also asked did we want anything else, but after two attempts by this time we didn't want to sit and wait any longer. We could see other peoples meals arriving at the table with steam coming from them so not sure why this couldn't be the same with ours. Our meals varied from pasta, fish and meat, maybe if the kitchen cant serve this range of food all hot at the same time then they should consider limiting the choice on the menu. The restaurant was not overly busy at this time so they could not have been under pressure. This was very disappointing on what was a fantastic weekend in the city.
We were a party of 8 with only an hour to eat before the theatre. The staff were friendly, efficient and very accommodating to specific requests. The food was very tasty with a good range and we all thought extremely reasonably priced considering the restaurant's location. Would definitely go back and recommend to friends.
Enjoyable food at a very reasonable price.
I would stick to the traditional spaghetti/pasta dishes however and try not to be too adventurous.
