We had a lovely meal in Saturday lunchtime. Had cheesy garlic pizza to start filled by lamb chops in a red wine sauce and a ribeye steak. Food was fabulous, cocktails were delicious. And they brought a desert out with a candle on it for my friend who’s birthday it was.
Well worth a trip and very reasonable. Staff were friendly and very efficient.
Good service, good food. Nice feel about the restaurant and happy staff.
Thoroughly recommend for a pre theatre meal. No fuss no stress just what we wanted.
Overall nice restaurant. I ordered pasta which was tasty but not the best pasta I’ve eaten. It was slightly too ‘al dente’ for my liking. Tentative waitresses and very nice interior.
Fantastic dinner , service and great value
Nice atmosphere, great food and friendly service, would definitely go again.
Probably not the best time to judge this restaurant during the Italy v England Euro final! But the food was good and the service attentive. We were the only diners for most of the time.
We will be going back.
Great experience and very tasty food
Have been visiting L’ulivo whenever in London and every time the food is excellent, the staff attentive and professional. One of my favourite UK restaurants
Excellent service, and authentic high quality food. This was our fourth visit and it didn’t disappoint. A meal for two with starters, mains and two drinks without a tip came to just under £60. The restaurant is located directly next to Charing Cross Station, its only a 5 minute walk to the platform.
Unpretentious premises, food served was fabulous. Really enjoyed it and great value for London. Highly recommended
Great service.lovely pizzas and desserts. Very good value for money.Would definately return.
L'ulivio is a consistently high standard restaurant. The food is excellent and tbe service is friendly and efficient.
Excellent choice of dishes and wines t sensible prices.
A very convenient restaurant when visiting the National Gallery or National Portrait Gallery. The food is good, the staff are helpful and it is handy for the tube stations.
We always visit this restaurant whenever we are in the Charing Cross area - it is our 'go to place. Food is excellent and the staff are friendly, courteous and efficient. I cannot rate this restaurant highly enough.
Lovely authentic Italian food. Good friendly service. Convenient location for theatreland.
Excellent friendly and quick service lovely setting
Really friend place with a good and relaxing atmosphere! Really good food and not over priced. Will definitely go back
The most amazing food, staff were friendly and helpful and the atmosphere was amazing. If you want the perfect date setting come here.
very good so far. good ambience. good service. affordable price.
Love L'ulivo - relaxed atmosphere, good food and great service.
I go there specifically for the sea bass. Yum! They have also redecorated, which made for a more pleasant dining experience.
Perhaps one of two of my favourite Italians in Newcastle! Can’t wait for my next visit!
Lovely meal, excellent service - we will be back! 😊
The food was excellent and the staff charming. Very good value lunch menu.
Chicken wings are not the best however the seafood pasta was lovely. Not a great dessert wine either
Second time here, overall very good, but it’s very busy therefore somewhat noisy. I ordered a beer and by the time it arrived I’d finished my meal. Staff are polite and I would definitely return. You need to reserve in advance. 4 stars.
One of the best pizza in london - try pizza gitana
Very nice food and good service. Have visited several times. Only downside are the toilets which are in need of some attention.
Good bustling atmosphere with friendly and helpful staff. Varied menu and good quality dishes. Have been there several times and will continue to be my first choice for a meal in that area.
Easy to make booking, food was plentiful and very tasty. Good value for money xo soldering in central London.
A great Italian restaurant in the centre of the city. Food great and nice vibe.
Good pretheatre meal, service was good and timely.
Great place to eat before the theatre. Service is very quick and it’s great to be able to go somewhere that isn’t a Chain restaurant.
This is about the 6th time we have eaten here and the food was very good as always
Very friendly staff, large food portions, seafood pizza is excellent.
I came here for a lovely pre-cinema meal. We shared a bottle of very nice Prosecco, I had the lasagne and my partner had a pasta. The food was well cooked and well presented, with quite large portions- so in that manner it was good value for money. It was easy to get the attention of the wait staff and they were friendly and attentive. The prices are due to the location, but it had a lovely atmosphere (if not fairly loud) and was overall very enjoyable. I think I would happily go back.
Food was good, but clearly none of the staff subscribe to the theory of 'Service with a smile'
The food is authentic and well made. The stakes are large and very tender. Pasta well cooked and lovely sauce. My fish was excellent. Choice of dessert is limited but all very well done. Drinks are reasonable. A real plus point is the service, attentive without pushy. It can be a bit noisy but nothing to worry about
Nice food, nice wine, nice atmosphere, friendly staff. We were seated immediately- what’s not to like.
