Just perfect. We went for the set menu lunch prior to a show and everything exceeded expectations. The setting is stunning, the food outstanding and the service exemplary - a true gem! Thank you to all the team at Brunello Restaurant.

Our evening was very pleasant and the staff attentive. The meal was an average expensive Italian of which there are many in London. We probably wouldn’t return unless happened to be in the area.

Friendly, attentive but discreet service. We were looked after from the front door onwards. Food delicious and the set menu with glass of Prosecco included was good value for central London.

Very nice décor and location. Food was average (dessert was frozen and had to be sent back). Service a little slow which got to be a problem as this was pre-theatre.

We hadn’t been for a while and it was just as good as before, even better. Service excellent and we were able to go for the early evening set meal - excellent value. Also they accommodated my husbands request for gluten free bread and pasta vey well - nothing was a problem. Fully recommend this lovely elegant restaurant

Go for the fixed price menu (before 7) - excellent value. Avoid aperitifs unless you want to spend a lot of money!
Friendly, attentive service was much appreciated

My husband and I came to this restaurant for a quick bite before heading to the Royal Albert Hall for our anniversary.
We ordered a Club Sandwich each and 2 side dishes ‘Arancini balls and Calamari’. For an Italian restaurant the food was not up to 5 star standard. The Arancini balls were terribly bland with no seasoning (just salt on the coating) and the calamari was over cooked.
We also spotted around 12 flies nested on the wall right near where we were sitting.

We left very disappointed after having to pay just under £100 for food we did not enjoy 😔

The food was OK. Crab ravioli good ( if thrown on the plate) whilst starters and deserts average.
But 2star michelin price for averagely decent bistrot food constitutes poor value. The restaurant was only a quarter full at lunchtime - I am not surpised.

Exceptional food and service to match as you would expect. An abundance of complimentary olives, bruschetta, choices of bread and antipasti. We enjoyed the baked seabass. Excellent choice for an exquisite pre-theatre dinner and located within 5 minutes walking distance to the Albert Hall. The staff were professional and very friendly.

After the show at the Albert Hall we popped back for a night cap and was welcomed with open arms. We were not rushed and enjoyed the warm summers evening of Kensington under heated parasols. The Hotel Baglioni is first class and the pricing at the restaurant is appropriate for the establishment.

Disappointing evening overall. Came due to the high rating. Ambience was nice, upscale. We were one of first at 7:30. Service was nice but when I asked what was in lasagna was told “beef”. I think I was looking for a bit more of a description. Appetizers were good, Parma and melon was good, burrata was ok. Main courses were a disaster. Eggplant parmigiana and lasagna were not hot, not warm, cold!! They really looked like they were leftovers from the day before. I had rigatoni carbonara which was under cooked, only warm in middle but cold outside! Flavor was nice but didn’t make up for cold and undercooked. I spoke to manager who apologized and offered to give me some money back or to come back again which I appreciated. Overall will not go back and was greatly disappointed.

Went here with the intent of ordering pasta dishes that we’ve had prior. We’re sadly disappointed with the quality of the dishes, didn’t live up to what we’ve experienced at the restaurant prior. The waiter and manager seemed annoyed when discussing my allergies and it felt like an inconvenience to them.

The food and service were excellent. Our only complaint was that the décor is dated and the dining area has no windows at all. It was the only detraction to an otherwise good experience.

We were hotel guests at the Baglioni - also very disappointing!

Very disappointed in both the service and the food. The food was very bland and uninspired. The service was poor - We waited approximately 10 minutes for a waiter after being seated (and the restaurant was almost empty). Asked for a wine list and was rebuffed to try a recommended glass by the captain - decided at this point that I didn't want to splurge on a bottle and took the recommendation on the glass of red. Not great, but insulting at £14 per glass. The best part of the meal was the amuse bouche. After the amuse bouche, we started with the Burrata which came with a few few roasted tomatoes and greens, but no dressing or other flavorings - had to ask for some balsamic vinegar and olive oil. I had the Sea Bass Au gratin which was an over cooked thin piece of fish smothered in pistachio bread crumbs with no hint of truffle or any other flavor. My wife had the Color Play with John Dory which consisted if fried fish nuggets on a plate of different colored sauces which all tasted the same - bland. For dessert we had the chocolate bonet with vanilla and cinnamon ice cream - at least the ice cream was good, but no sign of the vanilla, just cinnamon. Even the dinner rolls weren't worth eating - not warm and didn't appear fresh. There was a better bread selection on the breakfast buffet. We had some fabulous meals during our stay in London (even our £15 fixed price pre-theater meal), but this was not one of them. Felt very disappointed even with the £85 credit that we used from our hotel booking. Avoid at all costs.
