I like this restaurant, the service is SO good, the food really is creative, criticism? The provision of so much loud music for Sunday lunch is just unnecessary, the louder the music, the louder people shout until it almost becomes unbearable! (They might like to look at their wine prices, they really are voer the top, good wines but extortionate prices!

Brunch with friends. The food was pleasant enough and I liked the decor. The menu was limited for brunch and there was nothing that appealed to me. The items I ordered ultimately were good though and the waiter was very helpful and attentive

Wonderful place to eat! Food was amazing, the crab linguine was especially good 😁 they even surprised my daughter who was celebrating her 21st birthday with a 'birthday pudding'. We'll definitely be back! Thank You!

Unfortunately it was a bad day in the kitchen, the food took forever to come and my father's lamb was tough. However to their credit they really tried to make the best out of a bad day, they even have us extra appetisers as the food was late and when we returned the lamb they got the replacement plate really fast. I just think the restaurant had a bad day.

We were staying in the area and it was a cold night so we wanted something nice and local. The food was delicious. My husband had a pasta with duck and I had braised lamb. We did have to pay for the bread and olives before the meal and they were very much pushing their gin cocktail for the evening but we didn’t mind too much. The restaurant filled up pretty quickly after we arrived but it didn’t feel crowded. The whole street there has a number of restaurants. I would definitely stay in the area again, return to Bernardi’s and try a few others.

Bernadi's was okay. the welcome wasn't warm and friendly. we were seated near the stairs, which led to the kitchen, so the staff were running up and down the stairs. no one came to give us a menu for first few minutes. the only person who was friendly and gave us a good service was Katya. she is from Puglia.
we had caramelised onion, fresh figs and walnut pizzette, which was lovely. for main, we shared smoked burrata with spinach. this was good.
suggestion - to have few more vegetarian dishes.
thank you.

What a good find. 1st time there.
Had diner with friends. It’s a chic casual place with great quality food. The service was professional and friendly at the same time. The quality of the food was very good simple but great taste. Not cheap but not hugely expensive either . Would highly recommande.

Had a lovely catch up with a friend here mid week. We had booked and it was very busy but service was great, attentive but not rushed at all. Food was beautifully presented and delicious. We shared burrata with heritage beetroot and sea bream cudo. I had crab linguine (divine!) and my friend had risotto and we had tiramisu for dessert. Would definitely visit again if in the area. I booked based on reviews as it was close to my friend’s hotel.

Met friends from out of town for lunch. It was very enjoyable and all food was excellent as usual. Really enjoyed it. Service was good, but could have been a bit slicker and more attentive. We had to wait a while to catch a waitress's eye to order some prosecco as an aperitif. It was ok after that. Pasta main courses a little on the pricy side. Could be a bit better value.

Easily one of my favourite restaurants in London! The food is gorgeous and the team are lovely with a welcome you just can’t find anywhere else!
I love going back and have had a birthday party there which prompted half the guests to book for their own parties.

I was pleased and surprised to visit a longstanding established Italian restaurant that I did not know - and what a loss not to have been there before. The ambience was slick and chic, the service excellent and the food varied and delicious. Some interesting Italian wines too. A great place.

Bernardi’s continues to be a go-to place for me - nicer than a casual place, more casual than a stuffy restaurant. Since the new chef in the spring, the food continues to be super fresh and tasty! Service always attentive and friendly often with that bit of Italian flare that just makes it all taste that much better.

An unassuming restaurant front o the corner of one of Marylebone's most vibrant streets should not have you fooled. Bernardis is authentic yet sophisticated. Food and drink (including Sommeliers who know their stuff) is of the highest quality and service with friendly efficiency. Try the burrata and rabbit pasta if you fancy a moment of Italian bliss.
