Fresh Italian fare
A friend and I dined here for lunch. Food flavoursome and well presented. Good value. Very busy at lunchtime. Recommend for business meals.
Had a lovely meal at Diciannove
Had a lovely meal at Diciannove in the City just before watching a play in Blackfriars. Food was delicious and very quick (we'd explained we were a bit pushed for time), lovely atmosphere in the restaurant and very friendly staff. My only criticism would be they were a bit slow to top up glasses at times. Would definitely recommend and return though.
Great food but pricey
I had heard good things about this restaurant so decided to give it a try as it is very close to my office. The menu offers good choice and the food was delicious. The service was good, although I always wish waiting staff would try to avoid too many disturbances. Fortunately, I had booked using a deal for 50% off food which meant the bill came to £56 for 3 courses and 2 orange juices. If I had not, I would have been put off by the price of the food - it is lovely, but not amazing enough to justify the full prices, especially at lunchtime.
Amazing crab spaghetti!
Went for a catch up dinner with one of my girls and found this restaurant on toptable due to the good location. We had a three course meal and a bottle of wine coming to £30 each after the 50% toptable discount. Because of this it was a really good deal, but otherwise it might be quite an expensive meal. The staff were very friendly and the food was delicious. I would thoroughly recommend the crab spaghetti although I could have chosen most of the menu! There was a bar downstairs if you wanted to carry on and the location right next to blackfriars and the Thames is perfect!
Excellent food & service
We'd had a great experience when the place was Refottorio - the revised menu and decor is far lighter and brighter and still an excellent choice. Our waiter was excellent. We were there as colleagues but the venue would definitely suit a professional lunch, too.
Great anti pasti / lobster spaghett
The 'Il Supremo Anti Pasti' was really quite filling - good value for money.
Lobster spaghetti well worth trying
Fillet steak was cooked well and around 200g so not a bad price.
Lamb loin was ok, a little fatty
Peroni on tap so I was happy
Had a great meal here- Porcini Tagliatelle and Lobster Spaghetti- the wine list was good and waiters were attentive. Perfect location to use when visiting the Mermaid Theatre. Would love to have had time for a starter, and the Tiramisu and Italian sour Cherries were delicious. Lovely ambience. Would definitely eat here again.
great serive, great food
I went with a friend for dinner. We were both pleasantly surprised by the nice decor and atmosphere. The food is very good and the service is great, very tentative but not intrusive.
Good food, great service!
We visited before when it was Refettorio's and the food back then was excellent!
I enjoyed our night again as the food was nice (although I can't, rather unfortunately, say it was as good as before). The menu is a lot smaller than before which limits your options, especially if you are vegetarian which thankfully I'm not but my two guests were.
The service was outstanding, both waiters were very attentive to our needs. I would go back again as it's a very serene and calm restaurant, definitely one to have a good relaxed conversation in, nice to catch up with friends, without having to shout.
Excellent hotel restaurant
Excellent value and we'll prepared food. Booked at short notice for group and 50% off food offer saved £00's
I went there with my husband last Saturday. We had a good dinner experience. The food was tasty, its presentation well-finished and the service was very good. I really recommend to try it!
A Friday Night at Blackfriars
A very quiet evening in the restaurant... only one other couple dining so had full attention of staff who were exceedingly friendly, attentive and very helpful. Food was excellent ... a large shared starter between 4 people did not disappoint and the mains were superb, both in presentation and taste. Overall, although restaurant very quiet, all in our party would return again. The proximity to the tube make this restaurant very accessible.. a 2 minute walk.
gem near blackfriars
We found this restaurant because we were going to the Bridewell Theatre. Both of the choices for that night were excellent. The 50% off food made our meal amazing value, and the food flavours were outstanding. The grilled sole with anchovy butter beans were sublime. Mouth melting macaroons with the bill. Will go there again and have already recommended.
My partner and I had a fabulous evening meal on saturday night. We both had 3 courses, over 2.5 hrs as it was wonderfully relaxed inside. The ambiance is very romantic and the setting just by Blackfriars bridge was lovely. The food was delicious, portions not too big, not too small! Our waiter was amazing, and definitely topped off our evening - we were very impressed by him, so much I have booked to go back with my family on Wednesday! Thank you for a lovely evening Diciannove!
Lovely anniversary meal
I booked this restaurant for our anniversary trip to London on the toptable 50% off food. When we first arrived friendly staff greeted us and showed us to our seats. The other diners were all business people which was a little intimidating but the staff were attentive which helped us to relax and enjoy our meal. We had lovely Italian bread and scallops to start which was simply delicious. We had lobster spaghettini and pork ragout tagliatelle which were both cooked to perfection and we loved eating. To finish we had two lovely deserts - the chocolate salami was a new and tasty experience. The wine was a perfect accompaniment and easily drinkable. In all a brilliant way to celebrate our anniversary - thank you Diccianove!
Had dinner with 2 visiting Americans - we had great food, good wine and friendly helpful service. Not overly busy hence was relatively quiet. Would certainly recommend.
