Firstly I’d just like to say the staff here are absolutely fantastic ! attentive and sociable - the food was great, we had a bottle of 2016 Chianti to compliment our Linguine which was perfect.

I would highly recommend, very classy and niche spot.

My partner and I came here for his birthday. Bearing in mind covid and social distancing, we were sat on essentially a table of four with another couple. We asked if we could move to a table of two (as we had been informed on arrival that dining was about to end- and there were plenty of free tables), which we were able to do, but it clearly really upset the waiter, who was so very rude to us for doing so. It also took 20 minutes and 3 times of asking before we had our drink order taken. That being said; the next waiter was very chatty and polite and the food was adequate, though didn’t blow us away. Overpriced for what it is. I wouldn’t return.

Very nice food, lovely restaurant and great location being just off regents street but you can’t hear the cars going past!

Small areas of the menu including pudding and beer selection, which is a really small thing to complain about, otherwise a great restaurant!

Food of poor quality, at best average, in small portions, and cold. Curiously not like in the restaurant's own pics. That may be acceptable to some if it was cheap. But this came at a cost of a great restaurant; it is incredibly overpriced! The only positive was the atmosphere; service was also OK.

Really nice atmosphere, not enough option on the menu à la carte not sure if it’s because of the restriction. Great service. The pizza was delicious and the creme brulee my kids indulge it. I will defenetly book for another time.

This restaurant is a must! First time going and I will definitely be visiting again. From the first moment we arrived until the second we left, we were treated like royalty.
The food is beyond delicious and the staff are sublime. Special thanks to Marco who tended to our table.
We will be back soon

Food was terrible, specially the truffle pizza, it was a joke for £36. The tiramisu was horrendous as well, had one spoon and could not finish it. The main pasta was incredible small, apparently 100 gr. The service slow and disorganized. I used to love it but we are not coming back.

We have been eating at restaurant Frescobaldi since it opened. The food, service and ambiance have always been first class. On Tuesday when we last visited the restaurant we were lucky and the weather was sunny and quite warm. Hopefully we will be able to sit inside very soon.
The new decorations have freshened up the restaurant. Well done.
Regards,
Delia and Irvin Fishman

Perfect location for us on our first Saturday back shopping. Really good food, professional service. Just marked down because our waiter took a while to take our order, and at the end we had to wait for our coffees. Unfortunately when it is a group of women I do find this happens sometimes. Think of us a group of CEOs instead. We are!
Will come back as overall it was a lovely lunch.

Can’t fault the cooking, exactly what I expected from a decent Italian restaurant. Service had a lot of misses which spoiled the experience a little but we thought it may just be because it’s the first weekend post-lockdown and staff needs time to get back into the groove. Front of house were nice and attentive, however the waiters don’t seem to be as alert - when they served the food they can’t remember which one ordered which. Also when asked about specifics, they do not know their own menus or provenance of their food. Given the price point somehow I just expected a lot more from the experience.

I booked this restaurant for my birthday. I was very excited, and incredibly let down. I went with my boyfriend and we were given a table that was tucked into the back corner furthest from the heat lamps and crammed close to other tables. This didn’t bother me. What did bother me was that we weren’t given blankets but everyone near the heat lamps was - there weren’t any available for us for ages and we had to request them multiple times.

This still wouldn’t have bothered me as it was my birthday dinner and I was so happy to be out. But it just was so awful, we didn’t get menus until we asked after 10 minutes of being seated. The wine we ordered also didn’t come for a long time, after we’d had our starters. They also didn’t give us plates as requested to share our starters.

The worst thing was my main course, I ordered the butter truffle taglioni. I’m sure I ordered correctly as the waiter repeated it back to me and I had planned to order this before I even arrived. They brought me the wrong food. I watched my boyfriend eat his food while I waited for the correct food. When they eventually brought the correct dish, the pasta was sickeningly over cooked and was also flavourless, and they seemed to be aggravated at me as if it was somehow my mistake.

I had been looking forward to some tiramisu as it was a birthday celebration, but I was so deeply disappointed in the whole thing, we left after the main course. Would never come back, a terrible mistake for my birthday dinner. Would not recommend.

Al fresco set-up worked well for a business catch-up with sun shining down for our late lunch with heaters available when needed. Excellent food with suberb selection of wine but at strong prices. Service was exceptional and it was great to be back at a restaurant and eating exceptionally well.

Very pleasant staff who gave the impression of being rather overwhelmed by being so busy, this being lunch in the first week after lockdown. Service was interminable; rather good food and a decent if expensive wine list.

The fish was very good, the pasta worse than in previous year. It was very cold outside, only 5-6 heaters for 20 tables. The waiters were extremely helpful and polite, they really did their best to cope with their role.

The service is shockingly bad, they are rude and told us to leave our table multiple times- they overcharged us and the waiter just acted strange -

They are very very disorganised I would not recommend at all ever

One of the waiter looked at me and walked away/ignored me 3 times, but the rest were very nice and helpful. Food is very basic and very expensive. Not worth the money. You are better off eating somewhere else.
