                                              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.

                                              Great Italian atmosphere and real flavours. We got all the pastas and all the pizzas on the menu, all very good.’ I recommend panelle, the are outstanding!!

                                              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..

                                              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.

                                              Nice location and spacious interior. Great service that was consistently let down by the kitchen; Burrata arrived a good 10 minutes after the two other starters and for mains two steaks served but third course arrived 7 minutes later, a Pasta dish 😳 menu was ok but not great and food was relatively good. My Mushroom tagliatelle was average at best but the two steaks with sweat potato and spinach got great review from my guests. Bill was £180 with no wine a d solely 4 beers so at £60 per head pretty pricey. All in all I will probably be back as the service staff and ambiance was better than good and I put the kitchen issues down to being too busy ( 7.:30 placing).

                                              A very nice restaurant, the food was delicious service was excellent, could do with softening up a little bit as it’s quite harsh inside and very noisy. Some soft furnishings might just dampen some of the noise.

                                              Everything was excellent - wonderful food and wine and excellent and very friendly staff. The only problem was the noise which sometimes made it difficult for me to hear my friend.

                                              The service was great, the noise was unbelievable - the acoustics are really terrible. Luckily the efficient manager sat us round the corner so we could hear but it could have been a disaster. The pasta was good though not very hot but it is expensive.

                                              The atmosphere was modern, vibrant and classy. The starters were delicious. Main courses were great apart from there was only one vegetarian option which, though tasty, was rather bland in appearance. Other main courses were excellent. Only gripe with food is that the menu implies sides are included but they charged extra for them. What really let this special birthday meal down was the awful service. The person who waited on us was rude and defensive. They spilled a glass of Prosecco and did not offer to replace the glass. Nor did they apologise. The worst is that we had a vulnerable person with our party and we asked the person waiting if they could avoid leaning over this person and wear a mask while serving. They refused and said they would put a napkin over their mouth which was ridiculous. They really did not want to listen to us at all. This put me on edge for the rest of the meal which was meant to be a special occasion and was the first time I have eaten with friends for years. My friend remained nervous throughout the meal. It is such a shame

                                              The noise was actually from the music not the chatter. The sommelier was very kind when I mis-ordered a wine which was much appreciated by us.
