Food as always was delicious. Piping hot and good portions. The staff are all delightful. We had to eat outside as restaurant was busy. It’s a shame they don’t have a nicer space than over looking a busy London road.

Great Italian restaurant. Grilled squid was well presented a good portion and charred perfectly. For main the veal chop was the best I’ve ever eaten. Will definitely return.

Lovely family restaurant . Great food and fun owner staff. Very buzzy but husband didn’t enjoy the calf liver and we thought the lighting a bit bright. Probably a fantastic lunch venue.

I have been to this friendly and unfussy restaurant before and find it pleasant and reliable. The service is good, the food delicious and the wine (though too expensive) good.

With covid we are very selective where we are willing to go this winter. Only two spots make the cut and this is one of them. The food is outstanding and reassuringly filling and the service is so warm and welcoming. They do a great job of making us feel safe and we always leave with a huge smile on our face.

Have been coming here for years and thought it would be ideal for our pre lockdown meal and they did not disappoint. Food was great as ever, although service slightly slower. The place was still buzzing.

Demartino has always been one of my favourite restaurants. The welcome is always warm and good natured and the staff are generous in their hospitality. The ambience is of a family run traditional Italian restaurant and the food has always been beautifully cooked and presented simply. It's the place I can take friends and know they will be at ease and well looked after.

It was a mixed blessing that I got the window table I have never been able to get over 50 years of trying. With only three tables there for lunchtime service, the atmosphere was gone. The service more than made up for it. I wish Demartino all the best for getting through the next few difficult months. I look forward to returning soon.

Demartino never disappoints and with their covid hygiene in place it’s even better. The food is comforting and delicious; the service warm and friendly. We are particularly enjoying the outside tables with heaters as the weather turns cold. And we are appreciative of the staff all wearing masks and making sure we are kept safe. It really is a gem and we keep coming back as we have simply never had anything but an amazing time.
