Italian
Italian Restaurant The Italian Restaurant has a modern but elegant feel, complete with an imposing wood-fired oven, suede wall panelling, handmade Moroccan tiles, mirrors in solid oak frames and chandeliers with candles. Complex, state-of-the-art lighting systems can change the atmosphere from sunrise to sunset, from season to season. It offers regional Italian fare with a contemporary twist. Created by Marco Torri, the menu comprises a superb assortment of antipasti, Tartare di Salmone o Tonno and Carpaccio di Manzo among them, followed by a selection of homemade pasta. Fish dishes are of the calibre of Branzino Arrosto con Caponata (Roasted Wild Sea Bass Fillet served with Sweet & Sour Sicilian Vegetables), whilst meat includes Piccione al Forno con Cavolo Nero (Oven-roasted Pigeon with Sautéed Cavolo Nero).

The place has a buzz around it. Tables were turned quickly as new diners arrived as the previous ones left. We were seated near the entrance and saw people coming and going which at times felt like a "restaurant supermarket". However we did not let that deter us from enjoying some very fine food and wine. The floor manager was great as he came around a number of times to check on how we were doing and whether the food and drinks were as expected.
Certainly recommend the place to anyone wanting to take guests for a special dining experience.
The price structure is steep and not for the ordinary Joe, so be aware the bill will not be anything small per head, easily over £100 quid if the plan is for a good night out.

Sempre una gradita conferma! Ambiente molto trendy , belle entrambe le sale anche se il rumore è un po’ fastidioso! La qualità del cibo e la professionalità dello staff rendono eccellente la scelta nonostante i prezzi elevati! Necessario prenotare!
Esperienza da ripetere ancora e ancora sia per il ristorante italiano che per quello asiatico.

My friend and I visited the Italian restaurant, it was absolutely wonderful. I had grilled salmon followed by chocolate fondant, all cooked perfectly.
The staff couldn't have been more helpful and the atmosphere of the restaurant was very relaxed and welcoming.
I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

I use Novikov often when I am in London and love it but on this occasion the service was poor plus never even got offered dessert menus etc and I did say to the girl when paying and she said she would take away the £50 service charge but I decide to pay it anyway

Food was delicious as expected, however staff were a bit difficult and i would say they took advantage of the fact that my party and I were young (18-20yr olds), they would not treat other customers who were older with the same etiquette in which we were treated. Rushed through our food, plates cleared whilst someone was still eating, just little things like that which were not appreciated and they didn’t really seem to care.

Great food, too noisy though.
Perhaps more for big group or some celebration rather than small/cosy dinner occasion.

We had not been back to Novikov since it opened many years ago. Pleasantly surprised about quality of food and good service. The Asian restaurant and bar looked busier and trendier but we preferred the more relaxed environment in the Italian restaurant. We will be back.

We visited with two friends on a Friday evening. We had a very short wait for our table and were treated by reasonable friendly staff. Our waitress was very friendly. Some of our dishes were excellent, others good. The atmosphere was good and when we left at around 11 most tables were still full.

Staff are exceptionally friendly and their recommendations on what to eat was bang on target. The food was amazing with no complaints. The portions were very nice and you left feeling well fed and watered.
The environment was busy, which is a good sign on the quality, but not noisy.
Will definitely return on another special occasion.

This is a good spot , people watch type of place with a dowstairs lounge and an attached asian restaurant. The italian restaurant is good, great menu list and all the food was good except the truffle pizza which was very disappointing. You can not taste the truffle at all, the cheese they use is too strong and the truffle they use are tasteless, despite its high price (60 pounds). Definitely a miss on this one.

I love the atmosphere guess that's what we paid for. Quality of food is not the best for the money we paid. Was my husband birthday so thought Novikov is ideal. He was not pleased with the price 3 glass of house wine £42 that was taking advantage of people in his words as he also work In hospitality environment. I love this restaurant because is cosy Nothing special. The staff where amazing . The service is top class. Thank you for the happy birthday song for my husband. He was very emotional and I love it... feedback please look into your price. My birthday is coming pretty soon and we going to sky garden would've looked Novikov but my husband won't be coming back lol
