“Big improvements needed. ”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2014 via mobile

Huge reputation and inflated prices. Very busy and noisy. Food wasn't up to much, although the Gavi was nice and chilled. Staff are pleasant enough but rushed off their feet. It's a shame as the food used to be good. I had the 3 different pasta sharing combo. Pasta was too thick and not tasty. 2nd time I've been recently and doubt I'll be back. Sorry.

Thank Craig B

“Very Satisfying Lunch Right In the Boarding Area”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2014

Mrs Too and I tried this place for lunch prior to boarding our flight home to Washington. Every measure had been taken to provide perfectly acceptable food in a hectic venue like the airport. An adequate space is provided to drop luggage at the entrance. The wait staff work hard and fast to provide surprisingly quick service. Considering the rent they must pay at Heathrow, we are surprised to note that the prices are all the same or only pence higher than in Exeter and Covent Garden.

Mrs Too had her standby lasagna, and I ordered one of my favorites, spaghetti carbonara. I can't make this at home because the pancetta makes it a little greasy for her taste. We both were entirely content with our choices and left prepared for a long stretch in the air.

If you are planning a trip, be advised that really good food awaits you in Terminal 5. By all means, visit their website. We were delighted to see that they have an online gift shop which will no doubt serve us well come holidays, birthdays, etc for our friends in the U.K.

“Overpriced and so so food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2014 via mobile

Since British Air food was pretty bad, we were hungry when we landed at Heathrow.
Someone mentioned carluccios.
The food is so so , and their prices are high for a quick serve airport restaurant.
If you just want a sandwhich etc. The fast food C ? Coffee shop On the 1st floor is much better
