                    We love the chickpea fritters here - they are outstanding. The staff are lovely and the pasta dishes also great, especially the venison ragu. Those who had pannacotta said it was absolutely fantastic. It’s not cheap (especially the main courses) so we wouldn’t go weekly, but for slightly more of an occasion…

                    A friend and I have been coming to this restaurant monthly for about 5 years. We were disappointed this time to find the pizza changed from an oblong cut into triangles to a large round cut into slices. We always have a pizza as part of our meal but will have to rethink our menu choices if this remains as a round. All the other offers were as we wished and the menu has great inventiveness. It was very quiet this Wednesday.

                    It was apparent the venue has just opened by the poor menu selection which anything should be the best excuse to really grab the opportunity. The pizza we ordered arrived burnt and had to send it back. The lemon sole dish arrived luke warm and very bland in both the fish and side dishes. All in all not a great experience and very disappointed and won’t rush back.

                    A group of us ate at the Italian Greyhound and found the staff very welcoming and attentive. The food was very tasty too. Particularly enjoyable were the range of starters we shared as a table - they were different, thoroughly enjoyable and appreciated by us all.

                    Excellent Italian with friendly staff and good atmosphere. The food is pretty good, just not outstanding. The deserts were the exception. Amazing. Highly recommended if you want a friendly, quite cool place to brunch lunch of dine. If you have been here when it was called Bernardi's the general feeling is the same so if you enjoyed it then you will enjoy it now.

                    Great place sadly spoiled by one woman ( diner) who seemed to want to shriek and shout which given acoustics made whole experience less positive. Save that very good.

                    The disappointing start was that the amazing - and unique - chickpea fritters were finished. And that’s a major reason we come here - apart from location. The lovely staff said it hadn’t happened before but word about their deliciousness must have got out. Still, the bresaola starter and all three pastas were delicious. I do think it’s rather overpriced: all the main courses are from £28, even the quite small pastas are expensive. But there are enough staff (rare currently) so maybe it’s all going on higher wages - they deserve it. We are not cool or desirable customers: mum is 90 and we aren’t spring chickens. The previous owners at this location made us feel distinctly unloved. But these are very different and that’s a good reason to return. Plus I really must try a cocktail - produced with huge elan..

                    It is a lovely place with friendly atmosphere, delicious food and great service. I enjoyed my Friday dinner with my friend. Great choice of Italian food and wine. Special thanks to our waiter and bar staff for the quick service. Excellent! It is a place where I would like to come back ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Great job, thank you all

                    Brilliant service. Fantastic appetizers. The pork was good but avoid the sirloin which was far too gristly

                    Booked a table here for a team dinner. I have been quite a few times, back when it was Bernadi's. Refurbishment is very lovely. There's a very calm and intimate environment and the service is very good and the team were extremely helpful and kind. The cocktails were lovely and the food was nice but I didn't find the food mind blowing, considering that it was quite expensive for the portions that you get.

                    Service and food very good, it was a bit nosy in terms of ambience I guess as it was quite busy. I think I preferred the old styling rather than the refurb. An enjoyable experience.

                    3rd visit, not as good as previous two visits, menu changed significantly, not as much choice as previous, very expensive considering, and compared with previous visits, not as good value for money, very dim lighting, difficult to see anything, what one is eating as well as trying to read the menu.

                    We went to the IG for lunch on a recommendation, and we were so pleased we did. The service was warm and friendly, the food was seasonal, fresh and delicious, and the general vibe was very very relaxed. Would definitely book again.

                    Excellent service and delicious food. Wine menu slightly limited but still very good wines. Good ambience, although can be slightly noisy. Will definitely go again and recommend to friends

                    I took friends here for a birthday dinner and we had a great evening. The pizzette were delicious, so were our mains and desserts. There is a good wine list with options to suit all styles and budgets. The ambience was smart but relaxed. I'll definitely be back!

                    The Italian Greyhound is fast becoming one of my favorite go-to restaurants in West London. Bored of being waited on by indifferent staff in the OTT, pretentious restos in Mayfair, this place feels like home. It’s elegant without being stuffy, and the food simple but so well put together. Looking forward to my next time already.
