Nestled near Carnaby Street and Oxford Street, we’ve been a favourite foodie haunt for years on Broadwick Street, Soho. We got our inspiration from the bustling bodegas synonymous with Spanish cities.

Bodegas are intimate, local joints where artisanal beers, sherries, and wines are served with impeccably sourced food. Our menu boasts a sensational selection of tapas, great bar snacks and traditional Spanish comfort food.

Brindisi is a really cute little tapas place in Soho - It is a great spot for a meal in the middle of all the buzz of Soho.

Had not been for a while but had always been impressed by the wine .Booked pre theatre and well greeted. Seated at back near kitchen on round uncomfortable stools that one of us said were not big enough for one buttock let alone two. Ok they did adjust for height but just get some comfy chairs.
Wine was good but food so so. Standby's like the p bravas and frittata were fine but the more refined stuff was poor : cold brocolli bits of cheese and a few nuts and/or tiny like the lovely but lonely sardine. Made it poor value overall aswell especially if you charge for mediocre bread. Cheese was excellent and service fine but food arrived in random order. Would drop in for nice glass of wine and a snack... and maybe that's what its about

As soon as we arrived the staff were insistent on telling us the table was free for a certain amount of time, they probably told us about 5/6 times. Not acceptable, we weren’t able to enjoy ourselves, felt like they were trying to kick us out before we even sat down. Also we would never have booked the table if we knew it was only free for 90mins, at no point when you book does it tell you that. Disappointed. The Shoreditch branch is so much nicer, the staff are nicer, the menu is better, never had a bad experience there but I won’t be coming back to the Soho branch, and neither will my friends who I attended with, really not impressed.

My only complaint really is that the padron peppers weren't very nice! Didn't seem particularly fresh and tasted very bitter with not enough salt. As this is one of my favourite tapas dishes, I was a little put out!

Had a really good lunch at Brindisa - food was great and it has a buzzy atmosphere. However, we were sat at the back of the restaurant, on a rather small table on the most uncomfortable stools! Not ideal for a relaxing catch up lunch with friends. Would recommend for a quick bit to eat but no longer due to the terrible seating!!! Replace those with more something more comfortable and we'll be back.

The food is the star at Brindisa. They do amazing things with simple ingredients. Who knew that tomatoes and ciabbatta bread could be done so well?

The atmosphere is lively. It's reasonably bright and loud so best for friends but we went as a couple and still found it very welcoming. Probably not top romantic setting but if you want that go somewhere else!

Service was good and friendly. It's reasonable quick so good for pre-theatre. They have a table turning policy but made this clear from the outset and in the event we weren't rushed out anyway. Wine was excellent too.

Do.youreself a favour and order the goats cheese in honey with a glass of Pedro Ximenez as dessert, even if you think you've got no more room left. You won't regret it!
