The fact that I have been attending and entertaining friends at this restaurant for nearly 15 years has in no way diminished the fabulous food and environment we always experience whenever we dine here. An absolute family friendly favourite for all.

Had delicious lunch with parents. Fresh homemade food and one of the few places with veal scaloppine Milanese in town. The tiramisu was as good as our family recipe!!!

Specials when we ate were squid ink risotto and sole in breadcrumbs with fries. Both were superb. Service was swift, attentive but not intrusive. All in all a definite recommendation from me.

An enjoyable meal in a great atmosphere.

Leaving the gratuity option open on the credit card machine after charging 12.5% service is not really acceptable nowadays, if it ever was.

Also, I don't think capers belong in a Caesar Salad.

It's was very good in all aspects except we personally do not favour automatic service charges and believe it should be left to your own discretion.
However other than that all good

We booked a table for 4 on a Rainy Saturday afternoon So it was quiet but and we had the best corner table. Food and service was excellent. Not the usual run-of-the-mill Italian but with a New York twist. The ambience was also good. We were treated to a few canapé and limoncello after the meal. This place is not cheap but quality and highly recommended for a special occasion.

Having worked in Soho for 36 year I was a little nervous about moving so far away to Great Portland Street but Demartinos makes me feel right back at home. Always pleased to see you and nothing is too much trouble and great to see them doing so well on a Wednesday night especially in these difficult times and not located in the heart of a tourist area. I came in from Hertfordshire to have dinner with my two youngest children who I hadn't seen in a while and it felt really good to be back there.

Generoud portions and delicious food as always. We were sitting outside, so the ambience was marred by multiple people smoking cigars on the next table. That apart, a good experience.
