    My recent experience at Quando Quando restaurant left much to be desired, especially considering it was a special occasion – my husband's birthday. Despite our party of 8, the quality of the food fell short of expectations, and the portions were particularly underwhelming. The mains, notably the ravioli, were disproportionately small, leaving us feeling unsatisfied. Despite mentioning the occasion during booking, the restaurant failed to acknowledge it with any complimentary gestures, such as a slice of cake. It was only after I raised the issue that a solitary candle appeared on my husband's dessert, which he had already ordered himself. Overall, the lackluster food quality and the indifferent attitude towards our celebration make it unlikely that we will not return to this restaurant,especially for any future special occasions. The experience did not justify the amount we paid, and it failed to create the memorable celebration we had hoped for.

    The best thing Quando Quando has going for it is that it was open on Christmas Day. We saw the good ratings and were looking forward, but the food was disappointing. The arancini were bland and served on a bed of limp arugula, the gnocchi were a bit mushy and quite flavorless. We will not return.

    Quando did not honor my request for a standard table which my confirmation stated and booked and guranteed by OpenTable. I was never asked if I would like or need anything after my beverage and food were served. Not even asked if I would like another cocktail.

    We had a team lunch for 10 at Quando Quando. All our usual places were booked out, so we booked this based on reviews. Turned out to be a great find and I'll put it on the list for future corporate lunches. Excellent service with a lovely welcome and friendly but efficient staff. We ordered a selection of entrees to share and most people had pasta as a main. Everyone seemed to enjoy their food. It was slightly on the loud side for quiet conversations, but not too bad. Generally enjoyable atmosphere and comfortable temperature too.

    This was a very pleasant surprise. I went there for lunch and it was a wonderful dining experience. The service was top class, the food was exquisite and it was quiet enough that we could enjoy the experience. If you need somewhere nice to go for lunch then definitely check this place out, you won't be disappointed.

    We had never been to Quando Quando. We were welcomed by the owner and introduced to the waiter. Both were really friendly. Service was excellent as drinks appeared quickly. We were helped with the food and wine menu. Then the food began to arrive! All of our meals were tremendous. We could not fault a thing over the 3 courses we all had. Highly recommend this new restaurant.
