Good food and very good environment. A bit more expensive for Italian food as pasta is sold too high.

THE FOOD WAS DELICIOUS.
THE ONLY PROBLEM, DURING THE COFFEE TIME, WE HAD A SMALL VISITOR GOING AROUND THE TABLES WHICH WAS VERY UNUSUAL FOR ME.

Pointless to book in advance as we had to queue for 15 minutes, during the 15 minutes I tried to talk to staff twice to see what was going on.. i was told to ‘wait’. The two girls who skipped us in the queue seconds before managed to get the table we reserved ‘roast by the river’ and we were placed further back. After asking for service at our table twice we finally got to order and the roast dinner we had booked.. was out of stock? You could have told us before we travelled 40 minutes to get there? No? Eventually we got the lamb ragu which was very good but didn't start to make up for the service..

This was a meal with family. I've been here before and have always loved their pasta dishes. The crab tagliolini is my favourite. Just the right bite, temperature and flavour. The restaurant has a nice, smart casual atmosphere with a view of the river. It can get quite lively and buzzy.

I think the restaurant was having an off day. The food was good but the service off. No cutlery, took forever to get served and for drinks to arrive. Had to ask for condiments, the bill was wrong and drinks warm.

The food was good. The waiters looked busy but the ones that weren’t said they couldn’t help as it wasn’t there section which was a bit nonsensical.

We were given toast as bread - not sure what that was about?!? Presumably stale and masking it?

We chose this place as it was close to the river. We were unfortunately quite disappointed. We booked prior however were told we'd need to wait for a table. We were given a nice table location however they did not set it up. The front of house lady was not welcoming, seating us seemed like a chore and we were just standing about. We then sat for 45 mins before being offered even a drink and the chance to order. We had to grab a waiter eventually as we felt ignored, and started to get irritated. It took nearly 1 hour for a drink to arrive, although I must say the cocktails were actually very good. The food was nice, however the side salad arrived 10 minutes after the main. A different waiter came towards the end to offer dessert and coffee and he was pretty efficient. As someone who worked in the service and hospitality industry for a number of years, this fell way below the standard of service most London restaurants offer, service was slow, the table was bland (not table cloth, flowers, candles, no cutlery on the table either). Food was nice and location is good, but its not cheap and could make a lot of improvements.

A lovely restaurant right on the water, a shame we couldn’t sit outside even though we requested it a while before. The quality of the food was very good, however, due to it being ‘brunch hours’, the menu was much more limited than we had expected. The staff were all great.

Extremely slow to find our pre booked table. Service slack, waiter more interested in looking at the young girls and chatting with the bar staff or staring out across the river rather than paying attention to the needs of all the clientele.
Food served by some one other than the waiter who was pleasant enough. Our bottle of white wine was taken from us and put in a cooler far away from our table so we had to ask for it on numerous occasions.
Not impressed at all.

It took more than 5 minutes to get menus after we were seated. We then had to flag down the waiter more than 10 minutes later to order drinks. Perhaps he was having a bad night but he did not make us feel welcome, as if we annoyed him when ordering food or drinks. Food was good and it was nice to sit outside on the patio.

I respect the fact that someone could work 10-12 hours but please do not show it to your guests. Unfortunately the female (I think) Italian waitress had this bored/tired/couldn't-care-less attitude ,which frankly, stained the whole service experience. Our male waiter was great. Quick, attentive as he should be.
The food was nice. Had the calamari and the Burrata Tortelli. Would definitely reccomend the Pana Cota for dessert. Really fresh and summer-y.
The meal for two people, (two starters, two pasta mains ,two desserts,two pints of beer and an aperol spritz) was slightly overpriced for the quality and especially the quantity and the portion sizes we had.

Good restaurant that serves some good food. These guys know how to make lovely tasty sauces for their dishes.

I wasn’t a fan of the pinsa, which reading reviews seemed to be a mandatory requirement. I found it an unimaginative garlic bread. Other dishes however were fabulous.

Although the service was good as there were not many people at the time, the food fell below the standards expected. The pasta felt very average, lacking taste and the Italian bread for the starters were quite hard and far from fresh. The tiramisu as a desert, slightly made it worthy but despite that it was not worth the money. Overall, I personally have had better Italian food, and would struggle to recommend Fiume.

Extremely poor service. First mistake was to bring out the wrong order, which took another 15-20 minutes to correct. When it finally arrived, my order was wrong with bacon missing. I hadn’t realised until a waiter brought a plate of bacon on the side, without much of a word.

Overall the staff was quite slow and inattentive, even though the place was virtually empty and there was more waiting staff than people in the venue.

As it was my gf’s birthday, it was highly disappointing. Didn’t offer anything complimentary for their mistakes.

Won’t be going again and do not recommend.

Just the place for relaxed Brunch/lunch with family or friends. Attentive efficient service without feeling overcrowded or rushed - great location even if lunching solo. Aubergine parmigiana was beautifully cooked and one of the best Tiramisu i have ever tasted. Did not go for the Sunday Roast option but the presentation on the next table looked very tempting - perhaps another reason for a revisit soon.

Very pleasant restaurant in an interesting location. We opted for the Sunday lunch and wine option, the restaurant was very full with about 90% of covers occupied. . Two medium roasts came closer to rare, one was rare, though the meat was tasty. Service was hospitable though we seem to be in a bit of a dead spot and needed to draw attention to us.
