Outstanding service food and hospitality
Dear Brian, thank you for your kind words. We hope you will visit us again soon.
Lovely family Italian. Four of us dined and all are different dishes, none of which could be faulted. A great find tucked away in the City
Dear JamesB, we would like to thank you for taking the time to write us a review, we hope you will visit us again.
Bolton’s is like stepping back in time. The decor is very tired and the carpet in particular is very worn and sticky looking. It was pretty much empty when we went, which meant the service was very attentive and the waiter was lovely. I had mushrooms to start, which was a plate of fried mushrooms which were pretty tasteless and oily on a bed of discoloured lettuce. The main course was salmon which was fatty and some carrots and broccoli.
There was a “cover charge” of almost £5 on top of the bill and service. We had the two courses for £20 deal but with the charge, service and a small glass of Prosecco it was £37 each. Wouldn’t go again
Dear Lemon, thank you for your review. We proud ourselves with 33 years since we first open and many of our regular customers choose us for our unique style and traditional decor. We are sorry to hear that we didn’t meet your standards on this occasion.
The Bolton’s team never fail to impress!

Great food and service at Bolton's. I'll be returning.
Dear GaryM, Thank you for sharing your review with us. We hope to welcome you again soon!
Am also a bit baffled by the 5* reviews. We went on a Tuesday night and there were only 2 other people in the whole restaurant so clearly catering more to the lunch trade. Main negatives were the unfair cover charge (plus service charge) which isn't disclosed, OpenTable also at fault here. Minus another point for no bathroom towel and the waiter vaping at the bar. Food was ok but not for the price and zero atmosphere, don't think I'll be returning.
Dear DavidP, thank you for sharing your feedback. We’re sorry your experience didn’t match your expectations and we will be looking into the matter further. We have also contacted Opentable to see if we can get this information amended. Kind Regards
Food and service always great. My favorite Italian restaurant in the City. Coming from New York, the self proclaimed leader of Italian food outside Italy, Bolton’s doesn’t take a back seat to any of that.
Dear DavidH, Thank you for your review. Bolton’s staff appreciate your kind words. Kind regards
Brilliant, personal service with waiting and reception. Lots of charisma. Food was good and central London situation made it good value at 32 for 3 courses.
Dear customer Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review, we hope to see you again soon. Kind regards

Great service, delicious food and great ambiance.
Bolton’ staff thank you for your lovely review. We hope you will visit us again soon.
Meeting an old friend required somewhere close to his office with good food, easy access, plus an environment where we could talk and hear each other. Bolton’s ticked every box and the service was attentive without becoming invasive. Will definitely be back !!
Not too busy when we visited in the evening but the staff and food were excellent would highly recommend if you enjoy authentic Italian food a large menu choice
First time visit to this restaurant meeting with friends the staff were very welcoming and friendly and the food we ordered was excellent no complaints i will go back it would be rude not to.
Excellent service and food as usual. A tad pricey but not out of step with the area
Always a favorite when visiting London. Love the ambiance and food.
Definitivamente el Servicio de lo mejor!!!
Excellent meal and great service.
Excellent as always. Had an early sitting so was quiet.
Bolton’s has been a staple for Cuty lunches for many years. The reason is that you can always rely on the quality food, service and ambience.
It is a little expensive for every day dining, but the food and service are excellent. I would certainly recommend a lunch at Bolton’s.
Bolton’s. old style subterranean Italian restaurant. Time locked in the 80s. Curlywurly carpets and dated decor. All the more charming for it. Nice atmosphere and very friendly old style Italian service. A feel good place. Food is OK. Actually ingredients good, cooking iffy. My liver was ordered medium and arrived raw. The fillet was rare, but ordered medium rare. Vegetables arrived en mass and were splashed onto the plate. Rib on the trolley did not look appealing. Road kill came to mind....
Verdict...nice old style establishment. No surprises; they have been sticking to their knitting for 30? Years. Lambswool rather than cashmere...
Nice People but the place was very old and tired. The food wasn’t very good either! Still baffled at the high ratings!
An authentic and well run Italian restaurant - with good size portions and tasty dishes. The 3 course set menu with a glass of house wine was good value at £27.50.
Love Boltons, make sure you say hello to Sabino for me
Nice menu, good atmosphere and ideal for a business lunch
The host is Italian. The food and wine were superb. And my boss, who is Italian, loved it. Enough said.
Traditional is not always a bonus...
It had been many years since I last stepped inside Boltons. Rather than feeling happy to greet an old friend, I was left feeling that my old friend had not moved on from the nineties. The prices had gone up in step, but the menu, cooking and decor had not. The whole thing needs a jolly good re-boot.
Boltons is a classic and never fails to live up to its reputation
Thoroughly enjoyed this meal. The food was very good, service was attentive but not intrusive and, although this was not a cheap meal, if was very good value for money.
This was a business lunch and will definitely be back.
Traditional & dependable. Always great service & classic Italian city food
Amazing food and service
They are the best in the City for the lobster linguine
Very nice. A bit quiet as Friday night but food was good and service friendly.
