Lovely evening spent here . Catered for diner who required a gluten free food. Good service and reasonably priced . Would definitely go again.
Great food, great welcome, attentive friendly waiters.
The food and service were amazing! We had an incident and the manager of the restaurant Lisa handled it extremely well. She and her staff were very professional. Thank you for all your support. We will definitely visit again.
Had a great time, food fantastic & despite 1 yappy dog & salted caramel cheesecake sold out we all still had a great time. Thoroughly recommend & will be back again
A lovely evening with good food, drink and atmosphere
Absolutely fantastic meal! The quality of the food is simply outstanding, Buffalo pizza was so freshly made, as was the pasta dish my wife got! Will definitely be back!!
The restaurant overall was very good. We felt welcomed with our little dog.
Food was very good too, downside was the service, we felt "ignored" by the waiters in one corner (altought their attitude was correct, maybe the place was overcrowded for just 2 waiters). We ordered a drink that never arrived and, after waiting for more than 40 minutes for them to pick up the dishes and order dessert, we decided to pay the bill and leave.
lovely food, great service - thanks for a lovely meal
Fantastic service, excellent food and great fun
Excellent service and food! Had a lovely lunch, would definitely eat here again!
This place was recommended to us.
It was so good! Great atmosphere even though a bit too loud. Food was fantastic, the wine delicious and super nice service.
Overcharged, sadly. Bill came to £143 total, there were 3 of us and we split it.
The first person paid £50, the second person also paid £50 and I was meant to be charged £43 but instead I was charged £50. Disappointing.
Had dinner here before going to the theatre. The food was great, as was the wine and procecco. The team really looked after us, including bringing out my wife's dessert with a candle for her birthday.
Great Italian in a good location. Look forward to going back soon.
Good was delicious - rich tomato pasta with my crispy-coated tender veal Milanese. Risotto was perfectly cooked. Staff were very helpful. And best of all completely dog friendly. Will be back again soon!
Italian restaurant with the feel of a French brasserie. Comfortable. Very good service. The food, not particularly cheap, was good to very good and the portions generous. The wine list is more reasonably priced but don't expect anything fine. Total cost £106 for two including 2 starters, 2 mains, a shared dessert, one of the cheaper reds and service. Would recommend.
Love Forty Dean street - service and food never disappoint.
Absolutely lovely, very friendly staff, accomodated us even though we were early. Highly recommend
Delicious food in a fun environment .
Informal & friendly staff
Delicious authentic Italian food - we thoroughly enjoyed our evening!
The food was absolutely lovely. I had the lobster spaghetti and couldn’t believe how much fresh lobster meat I got for the price. The sauce was delicious and the spaghetti was perfectly al dente. Great sized portions, fresh, tasty, authentic and cooked to perfection. Was so nice to be able to bring the pooch with us too. Very good service and truly dog friendly. Will be going back very soon.
The service was great, and the restaurant is very cosy. I loved the truffle ravioli, so tasty! Only thing, Ravioli wasn’t enough for my bf so probably if you need more food to fill order a starter.
Outside eating comfortable underneath awning and outside heaters. Food matched good prior reviews, and service was MUCH BETTER than prior reviews. Server Evie was super helpful and efficient, with a lovely manner. Value was pretty good given the buzzy location and good quality food and service
A warm welcome and superb service throughout, plus delicious food (and a lovely glass of Viognier!) Never felt hurried, just gently looked after. Will definitely return!
Lovely little place. We booked for a late lunch to celebrate a birthday and had a luxury of a quite and relaxed time, great service and attention. The guys also sang a happy birthday song for us. Definitely had a feel of a private party for 2. Will come back!
Lovely restaurant with beautifully prepared, tasty food. Will definitely go back
The most delicious penne Arrabiata in London! Always a great atmosphere at 40 Dean Street! Also check out the amazing decor in the bathrooms!
Lovely restaurant - complimented by the food and ambiance. It is a regular haunt for me that does not disappoint. The pasta dishes are particularly exquisite and in particular the lobster ravioli a and sea food pasta linguine.
Food was nothing to right home about, it’s the setting that bothered me the most. It was like paying top £ for the best seats in the house and getting the front row at the cinema ( they are the worst seats and you will get a pain In the neck and miss experience of the film) . It was packed with ppl so must be doing something right. But definitely not an intimate dining experience as I was led to believe.
Food was delicious, excellent service from the staff, made our anniversary so special 😊
The main thing - food was good and was good value. Let down by warm wine. Have to ask for salt, pepper, olive oil, several times.
Overall - good restaurant but not for a special occasion
Fantastic food in a cosy setting. Wonderful staff. A real gem of a restaurant
Food was very good the staff were so welcoming and we had our dog with us and they were excellent with him too
Excellent services. Food very tasty. Love it. Exceptional service from Flex. Was fantastic👏
Great food! The cheesecake is amazing! Will definitely be going back
Loved it, will def be back again. Big portions and good, honest service.
I met up with a friend at this restaurant and although the staff weren’t rude we were rushed off our table, we still had wine to finish when the waitresses came over and said ‘the next set of people are here for this table’ and told us to leave. I found that to be pretty terrible service. The food was nice but nothing special.
Didn't expect too much but turned out to be quite good. Delicious pasta. Amazing staff. Drinks were just ok, but plenty of drinks options in the area anyway. Perfect if you are bringing a small dog.
Service was fine but food very disappointing and tasteless
Amazing food and service! Lovely. Will be returning
