The staff was really friendly and the chef also. The starter we got (some mushroom item) wasn't that great but the mains definitely made up for it. Everyone enjoyed their mains we had a mix of pizzas, pastas and risotto everything went down well. The...More

The Amarcord was perfect to combat jet lag on our first night in London! The waitress was very Italian and as a result we had some communication issues, but nothing that could not be managed. The food (salad, pizza, seafood) was fresh and of excellent...More

Been here for 3 times this month. And every time I feel like eating in an Italian family's home. You will find some old people just come here alone to enjoy their food. Obviously this is not running by an Italian family, but you feel...More

Went there early on Saturday evening, 14th of October with my wife. The restaurant was very quiet and we were seated at a window table presumably to give the impression that the restaurant had customers. The first thing that we noticed was that the tables...More

I was unaware that there were two Amarcord restaurants within a minute of each other so once I saw the identical design I entered to eat with my tastecard. I had entered the Amarcord Museum rather than the restaurant I had booked. The waiter could...More

We were surprised to find that the restaurant was virtually empty on a Saturday evening, but we need not have worried as the food was very tasty. There were 7 of us and most went for a pasta dish as a main, which were all...More
