We booked well in advance, and did at least expect a reserved table, which was not apparent. I think they did have our names noted, but that was all. We were seated adjacent to a chiller cabinet, which hummed and threw out a cold draught, which was not acceptable. Moving to a table was not that easy, as the restaurant... More

I had a lovely dinner for two at the Old Amalfi - the interior design is very authentic, the service was great - there when you need them in an instant but not over bearing. The food was delicious and tasted very fresh, their specials were particularly impressive. It's not so often you can find an authentic-feeling restaurant in London... More

This is an excellent Italian restaurant, the food is delicious, the staff all friendly and welcoming. We were a party of 3 , all having different main course and none of us were disappointed. For £30 each, including a drink each it was excellent value for money.

I had some friends coming over from Cyprus and I wanted them to try some proper Italian food. The experience was just perfect, the pastas we ordered were very tasty and cooked proper Italian way with fresh ingredients. Portions worth the price. The tiramisu was unforgettable, the profiteroles are definitely the best I've tried in London. Best part: the service!... More

The best restaurant we visited during our stay in December (2017) and one of the best restaurants we've visited full stop. Will definitely be coming back when we're next in London. My husband had a freshly baked pizza and I had a seafood medley which was incredible, seriously delicious and perfectly cooked. We shared a side of fries, a generous... More
