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

Great traditional Italian restaurant with superb food and a great buzzy atmosphere. I have been coming here for years and it has been consistently good. The house wine is good value and extremely drinkable. The atmosphere always friendly and fun

The squid ink crab and shrimp pasta was very good. My guest had a seafood rissoto and he also really liked it. The value of the portion was just right. Staff was very friendly, offered genuine suggestions and we also got to speak to the owner which was very lovely.

Good starters (a platter of cured meat,burrata and vegetables), overcooked seafood linguine. Dessert was oranges with mascarpone and ice cream, nothing to write home about. Overpriced wine. Service was nice but the ambiance was terribly noisy.

A most enjoyable lunch; on a Monday, the place was very busy, with a good atmosphere. Our food was most acceptable, well presented and tasty. Despite the number of people dining,. service was efficient ad friendly. A decent enough bottle of Valpolicella at a sensible price, too.

Overall, a very good restaurant. It is a traditional Italian, independent, and makes a refreshing change from all the chains. The food is excellent, house wine very good, and it has a lively (without being too noisy) atmosphere.

Demartino is based on fantastic food and great service which should prove more than enough for any restaurant. However the style, ambience and "welcoming" attention that simply everyone seems to receive, makes this Central London Italian Classic a one off. The fact that it was difficult to get a table in both January and February in an area "teeming" with great places to eat, says everything

Great Italian restaurant with generous helpings and friendly staff. Wine is available by the glass and 500ml carafe which is great when you don’t want a bottle. The veal chop is legendary and my partners salmon was fresh and generous in size. Grilled vegetables, seafood starter and desserts all good. It’s noisy and the wooden seats are a bit hard so not for a romantic evening by candle light but perfect for quick meal. Complimentary Grappa was much appreciated!

Cold starter that should have been hot. Cold liver for main served on a cold plate with oily cold sautéed potatoes.
They re heated when asked under the grill but the liver under the top layer was still cold.
Poor poor poor!!
