I really enjoy the consistent ambiance and good pasta dishes here at De Martino. Have been coming here for 18 years! Non pretentious but quality place.

As always, a really great meal, with perfect service. This must, without doubt, be amongst the very best Italian Restaurants in London - certainly our clear favourite - unfailingly good

This was the third or forth time I’ve eaten at Demartino’s - as usual the food and atmosphere was great. The only downside was that my friends lamb was very rare instead of medium rare.

4 years ago my wife and I moved from Hampstead to an address very close to this restaurant, we liked the look of it and, while finding it very noisy during the week at both lunch and dinner, we, nonetheless, hoped it could become our "restaurant du coin". Alas, we found the cuisine second rate and traditional dishes bearing only a poor imitation of the real thing. You will find our 2015 review, now irrelevant.

The place can still be noisy but the cuisine is now interesting authentic and imaginative. The Osso Bucco is perfect with a saffron risotto as good as anywhere in Italy, all the pasta dishes are good as are the grilled Veal Chop, Escalop alla Milanese and the Liver bacon and onion cooked to your taste. It is absolutely our restaurant du coin and long may it remain so.

Great Italian food served by friendly people. Thee is far more than pasta and a dollop of sauce here. Wine list not tested as it was lunch time but the house wine by the glass was great for the price. Deserts good. Coffee excellent!

The food was great as always. There was one grumpy inpatient waiter who unfortunately comes to mind, but everyone else was lovely. I have always thought it was a bit weird and distracting to have the TV on while eating in a social setting.

We had a really nice evening, 4 ladies in our 50s. The food was beautiful, our waiter was wonderful and kept us amused and answered all our questions and queries. We weren't rushed and nothing was too much trouble for all the staff. The price was very reasonable. We will definitely return. Thank you for a very enjoyable evening.

Demartino, the Italian place was way too loud for having a conversation during our meal. We reserved lunch for 6 people at 12 noon. By 1 pm, the room was pretty full, I guess it was about 25 people. And it was so noisy that I felt like I was in a NIGHT CLUB. We could not hear each other talking.
The food was OK, my dish was so cheesy and I was full after 3 bites.

We went there for the first time and it was a very positive experience. Is located in a quite part of London, far from the crowd. The food was delicious and the service perfect. We will come back.

As always the food was really good and came nice and hot . The waiting staff were attentive but not overly in your face.

In my opinion the wine wine list is fairly narrow in choice .

There is no New World wines on the menu ,
Australia , New Zealand South Africa , Chile , Napa Valley .

Cracking Italian with a local feel to it and fantastic food. Great service without any fuss. Can be busy and loud, but never in a bad way. Very understated but one of my top Italians in London.

What a terrific lunch four of us had, celebrating a retirement. There is a splendid wine list of which we sampled several different bottles. A varied menu, delightfully Italian and utterly delicious. With all of that and ever attendant, pleasant staff, what's not to like! One will be going back again, for sure.

We ate here on Saturday night 18th May.
Proper family authentic restaurant. If you want to eat in a quiet place with no atmosphere...dont go here.

Italians love sharing their food and I am glad we could share it too because it was tasty and there was plenty of it. Served by friendly attentive staff.

Would recommend in a heartbeat
