I had gone based on a review. I was on holiday . It didn't live up to the review. Plus the price on the menu didn't include vat . Where I come from the price is as stated on the menu... The tip should always be optional . So I ended up paying an extra ten pounds onto the bill .
The cosmopolitan was not a patch on the one I had in fuomo restaurant
Perhaps you could have a lesson at fuomo .for me your restaurant is to far to go to have a mediocre meal

The restaurant has a lovely ambience and setting - especially in a warm summer night there is an an fresco option. The food is lovely and well presented, but I’m not entirely sure it is worth the price (£20+ for a pasta dish) when there are better value and very tasty Italian restaurants around. We were also disappointed to find that the wine and the pasta dish we wanted were both unavailable - kind of would have expected this to be told to us ahead of us choosing these options. We still had a lovely evening and i quite recommend it for a calm night out in the area. Their bar downstairs was also buzzing, so would want to try it out next time!

Super location to eat before Hyde park concert; relaxed atmosphere, lovely staff - seafood starters were superb, steak was cooked to perfection and really tasty. Fast service but not rushed - a great start to the afternoon.

There weren’t anywhere near enough waiters so it took 4 hours for a two course meal and coffee. The food was nice but nothing I haven’t had before and nothing extra special.

My wife and kids (17&15) were in London for 4 nights. We went to Bernadi's based on location to our hotel and the excellent reviews.
We were not disappointed. The food was excellent. I enjoyed some perfectly cooked lamb. The kids through there meals of chicken and pasta were fantastic.
We received service from Lorenzo who does an excellent job with recommendations.
If you are in central London and would enjoy some Italian food then I highly recommend this property.

It was a lovely experience, but the service level of their staff is varied. We had a fantastic Swedish waitress, but also a gentleman who was less helpful. I complained about the pasta and he replied "oh really, are you sure? It's actually very nice", which was a strange comment. But their main manager is very lovely and helpful and always offers excellent service.

My partner and I came to London from Berlin for a weekend. I booked Bernardi’s for my partner’s birthday and sent a special request for a small birthday dessert upon booking. It was a pleasant experience and the staff prepared a lovely dessert plate for us. We thoroughly enjoyed the delicious food and drinks at Bernardi’s!

I go to Berardis fairly often and use it for corporate dinners/lunches too.

The food is consistently excellent, with friendly service and a relaxed surroundings.

I have also recommended Bernardis to friends and they love it too..

I’m very disappointed with this restaurant. The starter wasn’t good( salumi platter: the ham was old). I ordered veal mince pasta and I didn’t like it. The day after I felt unwell(nausea).

We have eaten at Bernardi's several times and the food seems to go from strength to strength.
The friends who joined us for the meal were new to the restaurant and messaged the next day to say "each course was delicious"!
We will certainly continue to eat there.

Friendly, good service all the way from the front desk (which doubles as rather undercover cloakroom) throughout the dinner.

Great for cocktails in the bar downstairs, although this time we sat upstairs for dinner only.

This was a nice spot for a birthday brunch. The brunch portions are quite small for how much they cost. Overall, the mark-ups could be a little less.

Perfect score! We visited while on vacation. The place was in a great setting, busy and full of energy. The menu isn’t as full you’d expect but it doesn’t have to be. We started with antipasto meats and breads with a reasonable bottle of red. The pasta course of veal ragu and mini penne was stunning. Pasta slightly aldente’ with a nice ole dinner of veal and spices. Great for two people to share. The grilled chop was excellent, cooked to perfection. There was only one food runner for the night but this guy was flying up and down the stairs all evening. Food was timely and piping hot. Service was second to none.
