    Excellent cocktails - we had the spicy margarita and it was very good. The food was also good but prices are a little on the high side. However still a very nice evening and in a very central area.

    Authentic Italian cuisine…quite a variety of choices & a spectrum of dishes perfectly prepared; some with creative seasonings and a mediterranean twist. Portions are reasonably; also the prices. Very good service & knowledgeable staff…Farida was impressive in terms of her customer care & recommendations.

    We arrived early for our booking but the staff were very accommodating that we would like to sit down before ordering and have a quiet drink together, we decided to have a starter from the menu with our drinks and when ready we ordered, we requested very hot food and plates, the food and plates were very hot when served at our table, both meals were very delicious and at no time were we rushed throughout a very enjoyable experience and shall return in the future.

Our waiter Burcin was very kind and professional. I recommend trying the pizza, the best one I had in London. Great experience and a fantastic atmosphere; I definitely recommend it!

    Faros Italian restaurant offers an authentic taste of Italy right in the heart of the city. From the moment you step in, you're greeted with warm ambiance and a welcoming atmosphere. The menu boasts a delightful array of traditional Italian dishes, each prepared with care and bursting with flavor. But what truly sets Faros apart is their exceptional service, exemplified by Fera. Fera's attention to detail, friendly demeanor, and extensive knowledge of the menu made our dining experience truly memorable. She went above and beyond to ensure we had everything we needed, offering recommendations and accommodating any special requests with a smile. If you're in search of delicious Italian cuisine served with impeccable hospitality, look no further than Faros, where Fera and the team will make you feel like family.

    We had the most amazing time at this Italian restaurant. The location is just ideal for a shopping day in London and the food was absolutely incredible. But, above all, I would like to compliment the service of this place. This boy Jasur was fantastic to us, so sweet and helpful. We also as for the name or his colleagues: Mehmet, Gabriel, Natalia and Burcin. Cheers everyone, keep up the good job!! :))

    The service was great and food was tasty and decent portions. Tiramisu was one of the best I’ve had and the linguine was very nice too. I would come back, despite it being a little bit more pricey than standard restaurants. Some tables for two seem very narrow so a little bit more space and privacy around tables would feel more comfortable…

    It was my second time to Faros and I came with my daughter, it was my birthday. Firstly the service was exceptional from start to finish from all of the team members. Attentive but not intrusive, they recognised my birthday which was nice touch also. Food on both occasions has been fresh and cooked to perfection. Faros offers real quality which in great location in London can sometimes be a challenge. This is my go to Italian when in central London Thank you Faros team another awesome experience
