We ate here on Thursday 18th May. Although it was raining hard outside, we sat in the front part of the restaurant and had a view of the street outside- we hope our next visit the weather will be better and sit by the bi-fold...More

We have always had good luck with the food here. It seems to be authentic Italian, most dishes are good, but none outstanding, and a few poor. Ambience is nice - quiet, clean, airy, roomy. Service is highly variable - usually odd and disappointing, with...More

Would like to thank this reviewer for some of the positive comments which are quite complimentary. However also appreciate the comments re the inconsistency of service and will be talking to my staff and implementing training to see how we can improve.

Our small book group met here last night and for once we were able to hear each other. So full marks for virtually no background music and a half full restaurant. The menu is classic Italian. I started with linguine vongole with chilli - lots...More

Would like to thank this reviewer for his comments. Seemed he liked the food in fact praised it apart from not liking polenta. Therefore seems shame he did not rate us higher.

We had been recommended to this restaurant. First class, lovely menu, food is fresh and tasty, the staff are very friendly, definitely a return visit. There is jazz in a Friday evening. In the summer you can sit outside.

Good: Nice part of town. Parking outside (limited). Attractive decor. Crisp table presentation. The fish (according to my dining companions). Waitress with brown hair. The chance of spotting a celeb "among the affluent locals" according to the blurb (if that's what floats your boat). Not...More

A good choice of authentic Italian dishes with a reasonably priced 2 or 3 course dinner. We enjoyed the chicken liver and bacon salad, linguini vongole as starters - for our main courses the calves liver and home made ravioli were really good. Wine is...More

Very overrated. Service is poor. Staff are unfriendly, slow to take orders, and generally not attentive. Food is okay but nothing special - and very overpriced.More

Artigiano shows just how glossy Italian high style can be, with its stylish chrome interior, high-concept lighting, rear glass ceiling, and glass front that opens like pairs of welcoming arms when the weather allows. Don't miss the 'Oscar' donated by a satisfied diner. Lunches are relaxed and calm, while dinners are buzzier. The confident, modern Italian menu's most popular dish is the spaghetti with fresh crab and rocket with a spicy crab sauce. Old favourites have got a delicious new twist, like carpaccio with homemade pesto dressing or calf's liver with wild mushrooms and fava beans. High style, great food. Please be aware, bookings for Saturday nights must be booked at least 2 weeks in advance.
