“Outstanding Italian Cuisine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 December 2011

Having been here on two previous occasions, we knew we would be in for a treat. Every part of the service chain was perfect from being shown our table to paying the bill. We opted for the "Frito Misto" antipasti - a succulent myriad of lightly battered seafood pieces together with seafood mayo dip. Then we chose the rump steak in marsala sauce with a chard and spinach vegetable medley. This was topped off with chocolate and pistachio ice cream laced with Amaretto - a perfect finale to our evening.

A glance around revealed many a happy and contented face, feasting on the gastric delights of this veritable Italian Brasserie and rightly so.

“Ideal for pre theatre supper”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 December 2011

Great central location next to the Coliseum, ideal for ENO. Booking essential for pre-theatre meal at any time. Varied Italian menu, nicely presented and well cooked pasta dishes. Reasonable value for central London but the wine is a bit pricey by the glass. If you let the waiter know you are going to the theatre you will be served promptly even if the restaurant is busy. Happy to return.

“Good food at a price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 November 2011

OK, it's the centre of London, a stone's-throw from Traflagar Square, next door to the English National Opera and in theatreland - it's going to cost. The menu is authentic Italian, nicely varied. The portions are on the modest side but the cooking and presentation is immaculate. The ambience is good - not at all bleak like some modern establishments along this strip and it's on the noisy side especailly if you have hearing aids - Take them out. It's popular - Booking essential.

“quiet Italian restau with terrific food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 November 2011

July 2010. A quiet place for a weekday lunch. Formal table setting but informal and friendly service. Grilled asparagus with Parmesan cheese and poached egg was perfect. Parma ham and melon, sublime. White wine - Frascate Superiore the ideal beverage. Looking forward to going back again.

Came across Bertorelli's whilst on a weekend Theatre Break in London. The food was simply amazing. The waiters description and recommendations were spot on and service was excellent.
