Really nice Italian, good food, good atmosphere. Would definitely go again and perfect for a quick bite to eat before going to Shaftesbury Theatre, which is 5 mins away.
Very busy but service was good. Authentic Italian food.
Ok meal, seemed quite chaotic service wise - nothing special
Lovely staff! Thanks for all the recommendations Emily :) Food was really delicious too
Really friendly staff & lovely pizza. Great evening.
Very buzzing pizzeria at the heart of Covent Garden, stunning sourdough pizzas, fresh ingredients, very thin base with crunchy crust, authentic Neapolitan pizzas, great value, good service highly recommend it.
The restaurant smelt very bad when we entered, like damp or a wet dog. The pizza was soggy and the salmon pasta was flavourless. Don’t recommend.
Good food, good service and a good night - thank you!
I dined at beso in their outdoor area it is a great corner in Covent Garden on Neals street, very vibrant ambiance and the food was excellent, delicious sourdough pizzas, the salami picsnte was my favorite, ravioli with black truffle was sublime, very good value wines and great service. Will visit again.
I was surprised that after dining they cancelled my OpenTable booking. I believe because their service was so poor on that evening they didn’t want a review. The Burrata tasted like Mozzarella, they brought meat dishes when we’d ordered vegetarian, the food was actually good once the correct dishes arrived. The one female toilet was blocked and overflowing all evening with the staff doing nothing to rectify. If they change the service staff this could be a great little restaurant.
We chose Beso for my daughter’s 11th birthday meal - she loves Italian food and I don’t like to slum it! We have Italian family and have holidayed in Italian for many years, so have high expectations when it comes to Italian food. The food at Beso didn’t disappoint, her Ragu was delicious, my ravioli with shaved truffle was awesome, as was the tiramisu. Other members of our party had pizzas which they really enjoyed. The food was authentic, simple and incredibly tasty.
On top of that the service was great - with energetic and helpful members of staff. We will be back!
Been so many times
Staff are so friendly and the food is absolutely incredible
Get yourself to beso!!
Opentable bookings for specific seating; eg outdoor seating is not correctly communicated to Beso
The food was just out of this world. Real hone made pasta
Brilliant pre theatre
Amazing all round!
Lovely restaurant. Food was served extremely quickly
Good pizza, close to the busy road so good for everyday dining not really for a romantic dinner.
The outside dining was very poor. You were literally dining on the street in the way of pedestrians. Once our order was placed it was at the table in minutes which is never a good sign as clearly not made from scratch. Had to send my sweet back as it was inedible. Toilets were disgusting
We were booked for 5:30 on Friday. Arrived at 5 hoping to get seated as we were desperate for wine, we got seated no problem. The staff were all so lovely and accommodating.
The food was beaut, especially the pizza and great wine.
Obviously we were only able to sit outside luckily the weather held out and even if it was chilly we would have been fine as the heaters are super Powerful so we kept warm.
The only thing that let the restaurant down was the blocked ladies toilet and it smelt pretty bad which was so unpleasant
Apart from that one thing would 100% return again.
Fabulous food and service!
Tables were set up inches away from each other "to get as many people under the heaters as possible because they'd double booked them". Food was just okay - carbonara pizza was disappointing.
excellent Italian restaurant, one of the best Neapolitan pizzas in London, sublime, authentic and delicious.
Food was very good but the tables were very close together and the toilets were disgusting.
Really good food and service!
The tables had literally 10 cm distance from each other and we felt very uncomfortable having lunch with people just sitting right next to us. It was also raining and when we ask if they have umbrellas to cover our table they said no sorry we can’t do anything about it. If you are thinking to book for this place ensure its a sunny a day.
excellent sourdough pizzas, one of the best in London, deserts were great particularly the tiramisu, and delicious fresh pastas with good selection of wine. Good value for money
Tasty food, friendly service , nice atmosphere 👍
Food is ok but service is awful. We booked a table but got asked to move from under the heaters (despite there being lots of walk in tables) to accommodate someone else.
excellent sourdough pizzas, top notch ingredients, very addictive
Fantastic service, great food and overall lovely experience very sweet birthday surprise - thank you x
Really enjoyed the food, shame the outdoor seating is on the main road with bins etc near by. Can imagine eating inside would be great. Get the gnocchi
The servers were so lovely and the food was quick - however we asked for Prosecco, rose wine and hot chocolate which were all out of stock which was quite inconvenient and we weren’t offered any sort of compensation which I think was quite poor. But otherwise we had a lovely experience and would come back again!
Great food. Shame the end of the night we we was told we was going to get a dessert menu and then when we asked for a drink kictchen and bar were closed but not told about no last orders not got a dessert...but the food was lovely regardless
Really friendly and the food was great! I would recommend this place!
Lovely food and lovely staff!
First experience of eating out since the end of Lockdown, a very pleasant dining experience. Services was very attentive throughout. Recommend the sourdough pizzas. Dining outside on the street on a warm spring afternoon added to the ambiance. Recommend for lunch time dining.
A pleasant spot for an al fresco lunch. Although adjacent to Shaftesbury Avenue, the outdoor area is quite far back from the road and the noise level is acceptable.
The food and service were good.
I took my parents to Beso for my mams birthday. Immediately the staff were so accommodating. Giving us blankets to brave the outdoor dining. Would absolutely recommend booking a heated area if it’s available. Sara ( supervisor/ host/ waitress) customer services was expert and she really made sure we had a lovely evening. Bolognese was a bit dry, no wine, no sauce. The first pasta on the list of pastas (don’t know the name) , my mam said it was the best pasta she’d ever had. Thank you besos. Perfect that bolognese pleaser, We will be back!
