The food quality seems to have come down. Even the basic pasta does not seem to live up to usual standards. At the end of the meal we have been offered limoncello but then we have been charged for it. The waiter reluctantly corrcted the bill.

Wish I had a friendly local Italian restaurant round the corner. Freshly prepared food, good wine list and very attentive service with big smiles, always makes you feel welcomed. Definite stop for me whenever I am in the neighborhood.

Favourite restaurant in London, so happy me and my sister stumbled upon this place in our previous trips. Wonderful staff and the food is the best. The tiramisu is a must!

Very enjoyable lunch. There were 6 of us celebrating 4 birthdays. Great service, we were looked after very well. Pizzas are huge and the pasta dishes are also very good. No one in the group could fault the food or service.

The booking on Open Table was not acknowledged and we were first offered a table by the door. The waiters were friendly and welcoming and moved us after a couple of minutes.

Starters: Prawn Cocktail without toasted white bread is ill received. The Garlic Mushrooms were over cooked and too dry.

Mains: chicken & Mushroom Creamy Pasta & Prawn/Scallops
Pasta. The dishes were plentiful when served. However, in truth, both dishes were bland. The prawns and scallops needed lifting with something and there was no evidence of the brandy cream the menu said there would be.

Desert: Profiteroles. Delicious.

Wine: Verdicchio (Acceptable at its price)

Service: Friendly, attentive and timely.

Net/Net: Good Location, friendly and attentive waiters; but the food was not good enough. Invest in the food!

Alas, we weren’t impressed with neither the ambience nor the food —certainly not at that price! A nondescript, small restaurant on a corner of a residential street... The menu offers a wide selection of Italian favourites and could have been great had it not been for 2 aspects: a) far too much fat used. Both our pastas were literally swimming in thick heavy cream. The cook should be told excess fat is not the ingredient that gives the good taste to a dish. Even my starter —grilled asparagus, an otherwise healthy option arrived covered with fried parmesan cheese thus also dripping with fat. b) this was supposed to be a low to mid-range price restaurant at ££ symbols. Really? A glass of house wine costs £8.95, 4 asparagus tips in excess of £12, sea bass £24+ If that is not misleading what is?

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.

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
