Authentic, well prepared with excellent fresh ingredients, Italian favourites that deliver every time. Il Bianco's consistency is just great. The crab ravioli remains as divine as it was 3 years ago!

The food was really tasty and very generous portions. The only slight issue was my boking had not been received and this resulted in an awkward exchange when we first entered. However, the gentleman who then served us at the table was lovely and I would definitely go there again.

This is my favorite Italian Restaurant. They do good quality food and service are excellent. The portions of food are always too much for 1 person.

The restaurant was much smaller than I'd imagined from their website. It was incredibly quiet when we entered and we were seated very close to their kitchen area with 2 members of staff sitting 2 metres from us eating their lunch. We felt like we were intruding and asked to be moved. 2 large parties were due in so the other side of the restaurant was reserved. We were moved but it was still close. Food was generally nice. They had no fresh squid (could accept this) but our baked goats cheese salad had the pine nuts missing. We asked and they had run out! These are not seasonal. I am not a particularly picky person but the overall feeling was not great. As they were quiet, the staff were hovering. The meal was for a special occasion but did not live up to expectations. I would not go there again.

We took the kids to this restaurant but no kids menu so meals they ordered where of full price in total £95 for two adults and two kids it’s food was very bland with little flavour shame as it was lovely inside and very relaxing if they had a bit more for the kids then it would suite families too no end

Unfortunately several of my attendees cancelled or failed to show, and as with Business Lunches some showed, but were late. Restaurant were fine about lower numbers, however there was some confusion caused when someone asked for an Americano coffee (when asked if they wanted a drink), which translated itself into an order for an Americano pizza! Not a big issue, but you could tell staff were disgruntled by the mistake.

Food was excellent, well seasoned with good flavours and very generous portions, my Calzone was the size of a house!

The good food was marred slightly by a lack of service attention, with no checking on the tables needs after orders delivered (No 'Is food Ok', or 'does anyone need another drink' etc), this lack of attention was again reflected at the end when it took some time to call for the bill.
Overall a good experience, but service level does need a bit of work, especially when the restaurant is so quiet.

Afternoon taking part in the Prudential RideLondon it was nice to site down with friends and enjoy a lovely meal with a nice bottle of red. Food, service and restaurant is absolutely great. This is the second year we have visited this restaurant and it has only got better. Will definitely be booking again for 2019.

Booked on line at least 3 weeks before. The week before we were due I had a call asking where we were! They had booked us in for the wrong Saturday. I double checked my confirmation email & we had definitely booked the 28th July, table for 3 people.
They then said no problem they’ll rebook us for the following Saturday, same time for 3 people.
Turned up 10mins early for our 7pm table. Was seated & then someone promptly came over with the diary saying we hadn’t booked. He asked our names again & there was a similar name to our ours but only for 2 people. I thought he was going to ask us to leave as he hovered querying it for ages. So I bought the reservation confirmation up on my phone & still no apology. We felt so unwelcome & like they wanted us to leave. We only wanted a bit of pasta as were doing Ride London the following day & had a 4am start.
Food was ok but took ages to arrive due to a very large party that took the majority of the restaurant up. The pasta was nothing to write home about & they got my friends order completely wrong. Said nothing as just wanted to eat & leave.
A disaster & will avoid if/when next in the area.

We just arrived in London after a very long travel day and wanted a good meal close to our hotel. What a lovely surprise we found in this gem! The food was excellent. Wonderful tender shrimp and scallops were full of flavor. The mango crab salad was wonderful. Service was attentive with helpful suggestions without being pushy
Dessert was perfect.
We will return

The food was delicious and the portions enormous! That said, it all arrived a little bit too quickly - this was a special occasion and we wanted to take our time. The starters arrived before we'd barely sipped our aperitifs and the main course came immediately after the starter plates were cleared. I got the impression this is more of an everyday dining place, so if I go back I'll keep that (and the portion size!) in mind.
