Loved it. Great table with a view over to SouthBank. Food was delicious - we shared a few dishes and the service was excellent. Will definitely be back.

Lots of space between tables. Feeling of intimacty on a busy Saturday. Friendly and efficient staff and excellent service.
Very tasty squid ink pappardelle, arancini, squid and carrot cake dessert.
Rest of the menu looked as tasty

Great location, wonderful attentive service and amazing food.
For a first visit this was extremely impressive. The food was well presented and perfectly seasoned to give a explosion of flavour in every bite.
The staff were very attentive without being annoying and they had an excellent understanding of the menu and pairings.
I will certainly be eating here again.

The staff were very helpful and friendly and the food absolutely delicious. It felt very fancy, but without the price tag. Thank you for a lovely evening.

We booked for our 10 year Wedding anniversary after some good recommendations. On the booking it asked for special occasions. I wrote on the form it was our anniversary and requested a table with a view. Nothing was mentioned on the night and the table was towards the back of the room. Don't know what the point of asking if it is a special occasion if nothing is special/different. Walked away disappointed and had dessert elsewhere.

Hi, I know that I have rated everything in the Exceptional range, but it was truly an exceptional lunch date on a Thursday which just ticked all the boxes. Just a small family group of four, a chance to meet up with my two lovely nieces in their thirties and everything just flowed. The wonderful Restaurant Manager Cedric has everything under control and provides the most marvellous service in a thoroughly professional way. I was thrilled that the Classic Ragu remains as a masthead on the menu - and deservedly so. The appointments are sumptuous and everthing sparkles as you walk in to the room. Worthy of the highest praise. Thankyou

Not much choices for food. Just beef pork and fish. Need to have some at least one or two chicken dishes. Even pizzas just plain vegetable and cost lot of money.

I have been to Persone twice and loved it, it was my birthday and my friends organised a surprise desert to come out at the end of my meal and the staff had written 'happy birthday' in chocolate, it was a nice surprise and a great way to end a meal.

Over priced and under value. For a purportedly high end Italian restaurant it was below my neighbourhood local.

We really enjoyed dining at Persone. Good service but not outstanding as my glass of water was not refilled at all and I had to pour my own wine.

Persone was a top way to spend our anniversary and we’d choose to come here again without doubt.
The quality was there in both our meal choices and the customer service held up beautifully.
Would recommend without a doubt.

I have been to Persone twice - once during the week and once in a Saturday evening. The noise level was very high on the Saturday evening, less bad during the week. Great view, great location, lovely setting. Unfortunately this time there was a mistake with our order and we waited almost an hour and a half for our meals. Food was great once it arrived but I wish I’d ordered more as I was ravenous by the time it arrived. I hope my experience will be better there next time.

From the start to the end - service was amazing .
Great host and manager
Cedric and Petra were great . Looked after us the whole time .
Kept us updated on how far our meals were and made sure everyone on the table was well attended too and at no time anyone was left asking for a drink or anything .

It's worth to go for the first time but I won't go back again. The food is just ordinary. Nothing went wrong but the most impressive dish from my order probably is the bread before the meal then the side cauliflower. Service is alright, maybe we dined in during the lunch time, I feel they did not have enough staff, I needed to remind waiters to refill my water. For the venue itself, it has river view...just behind the traffic, nice lighting from the window, but I found it hard to stand sitting in the room as it was full of grease smell. Compared to the price and quality of other restaurants, I think it only gets 3/5. There is room for improvement.

Arrive early so you can have a drink at the bar taking in the views.
We had 3 share starters between 4. They were all excellent. The pasta/gnocchi/steak were all excellent.
No room for desert this time. Excellent choice of wines and service was excellent.

The location is superb. The wait staff is excellent. The food needs refinement, the menu per-se is not too bad. It has not too big a menu to render people indecisive, however, the balance in some of the dishes is off. Portion control, looking at the menu holistically, i.e. consider the starters with the mains, would be good. Lastly, one could question serving Pizza, in what is intended to be a an upmarket Italian restaurant, having said that, the pizza we ordered was excellent and possibly the best of the dishes ordered, which is case in point. One can only assume that Persone doesn't want to become a fancy pizza place with a nice view. All in all, the wait staff and the view saved the evening, the food was a let down.

My only criticism was that the music was too loud (DJ in the bar), couldn't talk to each other and it was still too loud when we sat at out table. Thankfully it stopped.
