Had come for an evening with a friend to Ottimo, not only did i love the food & service,but my friend who is from Europe was totally impressed by the restaurant, Shaun at the ottimo helped us through the ordering and even customized some of the dishes to our liking

Anyone one who loves Italian or just a foodie i suggest this place, it wont be light on the pocket, but is so worth it!!

Thank you Shaun and team for giving us an excellent evening!!!

Great service at this restaurant although a bit pricey for what you get. Food is ok but certainly different than Italian food I can get from Italy or the US.

We were looking for the same taste everywhere after having our best Italian cuisine experience in London.
When we came to ottimo we here as well but what's that !? One guy came to our table and asked if we would accept any recommendations and added they could try do our preferences. Then of course we asked for our favorite and they did it perfect !
Maybe we were not hopeful when asking but impressed after eating it.
Here, we tried 7 different things and all those perfect dishes was prepared with passion, love and very fresh authentic Italian ingredients.
Everything was delicious.
Thanks ottimo ! Keep this passion and love to the people and your job...

I have been with my family, they have everything to keep my boys happy right from Kiwi mocktel to Misto di verdure(mixed beg) to Pizza to Crespelle vegitariana.
In fact I had all of it without Onion and garlic.
All the staff is also friendly and courteous.
In one word FANTASTIC. I will come back soon.
