It's always noisy at this restaurant but then it's nearly always full.
The staff are friendly the food service is good.
The food quality is always very good, and the menu is not fussy like some so called new style venues.

We will of course be going back in the future

DeMartino's is always a reliably solid choice for authentic Italian food. Service is always excellent and with a smile. The food is very good with healthy portions. If there was a weakness I would say it is with the desserts - hit and miss in that department. As a beverage, I always have gotten the house red wine. This time it tasted like it was right out of a box instead of a bottle. In any case, for the quality of what I was served that night, it was over-priced. Overall, DeMartino's is very popular with locals in the area and with visitors from the local hotels and one wouldn't go wrong with a visit there.

I have to take various clients out for lunch and Demartno never fails to supply a high quality of food and atmosphere. When the client has finished their meal always it is complemented how good it was.

Friendly service allied to good basic cooking with some Italian influence makes this a reliable restaurant but without any special merits. I always enjoy a visit on my own with friends or customers. Keep up the good work

This was the third or forth time I’ve eaten at Demartino’s - as usual the food and atmosphere was great. The only downside was that my friends lamb was very rare instead of medium rare.

4 years ago my wife and I moved from Hampstead to an address very close to this restaurant, we liked the look of it and, while finding it very noisy during the week at both lunch and dinner, we, nonetheless, hoped it could become our "restaurant du coin". Alas, we found the cuisine second rate and traditional dishes bearing only a poor imitation of the real thing. You will find our 2015 review, now irrelevant.

The place can still be noisy but the cuisine is now interesting authentic and imaginative. The Osso Bucco is perfect with a saffron risotto as good as anywhere in Italy, all the pasta dishes are good as are the grilled Veal Chop, Escalop alla Milanese and the Liver bacon and onion cooked to your taste. It is absolutely our restaurant du coin and long may it remain so.

Great Italian food served by friendly people. Thee is far more than pasta and a dollop of sauce here. Wine list not tested as it was lunch time but the house wine by the glass was great for the price. Deserts good. Coffee excellent!

The food was great as always. There was one grumpy inpatient waiter who unfortunately comes to mind, but everyone else was lovely. I have always thought it was a bit weird and distracting to have the TV on while eating in a social setting.

We had a really nice evening, 4 ladies in our 50s. The food was beautiful, our waiter was wonderful and kept us amused and answered all our questions and queries. We weren't rushed and nothing was too much trouble for all the staff. The price was very reasonable. We will definitely return. Thank you for a very enjoyable evening.
