This is an excellent authentic Italian and a rare find in the middle of London. The food is delicious and the service is on point. Great for any occasion.

This was the first time at Demsrtino’s and to be fair it was very average. My partner is Italian and wasn’t overall impressed.

Our waiter was very pleasant and helpful and couldn’t fault his service.

New Years Ewe dinner - excellent, nice athmosphere, very nice meal and charming staff, definitely a restaurant I would recommend visiting. Obviously a popular restaurant among people living in the neighbourhood - and I can understand why. Prices are moderate, much value for the money, not too extensive wine-list, but many nice and inexpensive wines offered.

We had booked an early team Christmas lunch (eight in our party). We shared the Chef's Salumi board (fantastic selection of cured meats, griddled carrot, artichoke and aubergine plus the freshest mozzarella.

All pasta dishes were beautifully cooked and generously portioned. My seafood pasta was packed with squid, clams, mussels and butterflied king prawn.

Would definitely book again.

I've always wanted to try this place. I pass by this restaurant everyday for the past year. It's always packed, every single day of the week. So I had to try it! My friend and I loved the place. Food was SO tasty and certainly great value for money; I think that was the best Carbonara I have actually ever had! They do take-away too ;-) Definitely going back soon!

Food was great but we were seated in the basement which has a damp smell - didn't realise there was a basement so if booking again I will make a request not to sit in basement - although it is less noisy.

Lovely Italian restaurant in Fitzrovia. Well cooked pasta and balanced sauces. Excellent service. Brutally loud dining room, but I guess I’m just old. Friendly staff. We did not try any meat dishes, but I’m sure everything there is good.

Great place to meet up with friends. Service was very attentive but not at all hovering, and the staff were happy for us to stay and chat. Our food was authentic, with special praise for the risotto. Next time we will try out the mixed platter on the brunch menu. It looked fabulous.

I ordered the mushroom ravioli. They were not filled with anything resembling mushrooms and were luke warm verging on cold. There were only about 8 ravioli and I was still hungry after finishing them. I have eaten here before and the food was great. This was not. My guest's arrabiata looked much better and was twice the amount of mine.
