Friendly, good service, decent food.

Geared up for passing trade, and does well at it. A friendly welcome from (I'm guessing the boss?) on the street, we weren't let down. Good rustic Italian food - nothing fancy, nothing spectacular, just good rustic food. I particularly liked the veal, the veg was fresh and the service... read more

Whenever I come here I want to go to Italy and when I leave, I feel as though I've been! Do I need to say more?

Stopped into Bizzaro and was greeted by friendly staff, good food, big portions and authentic Italian cuisine. Was looking for a good fillet steak and I was not disappointed! Prawn starter with chilli and garlic butter was also great. Wish I could have tried the desserts!

Yet another TA find - was staying nearby and wanted something different. Decided that an Italian would be good and Bizarro was well rated. I arrived at 7.30, got seated quickly, and the place as about 1/2 full - which seemed at odds with the other reviews.......then as we approached 8pm it got very busy. Ordered the mozzarella salad for... More

Charming Ristrorante a few blocks from Paddington Station. Food is great and cooked to order! ThePasta Fagioli was 'out-of-this-world'! I had an amazingly tasty pizza with the correct thin crust. Lastly, the staff is warm and inviting. If you are near Paddington Station: EAT HERE, you will be delighted.

I was staying at the Paddington Hilton and asked the doorman for a recommendation that was very close to the hotel. Bizzarro was less than a 5 minute walk away. I did not have a reservation but they seated me right away. I ordered the spaghetti carbonara. The guys next to me were eating a pizza and it looked great... More

I have eaten here before and came again this time with colleagues. It was very busy, almost too busy but the welcome was prompt and efficient - we ended up on a table close to the door, which wasn't great if I'm honest but as the the place was full I guessed we were stuck with it but as it...

I'm Italian and I seldom eat Italian when I'm abroad. I came with two colleagues with low expectations but I found the place friendly, warm, decent cuisine (ok in Italy you can eat better but come on!) at a reasonable price. I had amatriciana and meat with Gorgonzola cheese melted on top, both tasty.

Strangely throwback Italian with waiters brandishing pepper grinders, tiramisu on the plastified dessert menu, all the usual pasta dishes on offer. I had sardines for a starter, linguine with mushrooms for spinach for main. The sardines were not quite what I had in mind, rather larger (I was expecting whole fish), so I wonder what they actually were, but they... More
