I went with a friend for lunch - we were the only ones there that day. Barely greeted by owner who served us dressed in dirty jeans. He gave us alcoholic aperatifs - I declined as I was driving. He insisted it was OK to drink and drive - thus breaking the law and not respecting my wishes. (I did... More

We have been meaning to visit this restaurant since we heard about it last year ... We are total Tuscan groupies and were hoping this was as authentic as it is hyped to be... We were not disappointed. Paolo takes meticulous pride in presenting the gastronomic best of Tuscany. The food was delicious and far removed from the usual generic... More

Hello, my name is Leonardo, I am three and a half, my Mum is Italian and my Dad is English. I first went to Ci Vediamo Li' when I was only 9 months old, but even if at that time I didn't eat any of its meals - just keeping company to Mummy and Daddy - I took an immediate... More

We were there a while back and didn't like it, but seeing the raving reviews on Tripadvisor, we thought we'd try it again... What a mistake that was. They mean well, they really do. But they get it wrong. My pasta and spinach were still full of water. Portion sizes were completely uneven over the table. The starters are mainly... More

Went with my wife for a quiet birthday dinner. The service is always great and the food is brilliant. I don't understand the other comments about the food being slow.....that's how it's supposed to be! Why is everyone in such a rush? The creama sabbadin dessert is amazing!! Everyone in Barnet should go!

Some friends suggested this restaurant. They mentioned that it was a short train ride from King Cross station. It was outstanding!!! You are greeted by the owner, made to feel like family and treated to a Magic Tuscan dinner. It was the best I have ever had in London. The menu has something for everyone and each dinner is prepared... More

My main problem with this restaurant concerned the owner/chef who blatantly lied about the starter. I had ordered ravioli but when the food finally arrived after a long wait (there was nobody else in the restaurant at the time) I was served with tortolini instead. When I queried this with the waitress (who pretended not to understand) she reluctantly summoned... More

Answer your rewiew remembering that at the time of her arrival she was served a free aperitif before she ordered, after her ordination always free of charge was served a starter to wait for her dish cooked at the time and not pre-cooked. Probably I have not explained well in my English where I explained that the tortelloni in Tuscany... More

Our friends had discovered this restaurant by accident whilst waiting for their kid to finish off Violin lessons from a teacher we both shared. They said it was a great little find and they were not wrong! Recently we went along on a warm Sunday evening as it was coming to the end of the summer holidays. We sat outside... More

I like to consider myself a regular customer of Ci Vediamo Li', for since it opened I have been there at least three or four times every year. Each time, the atmosphere is cosy, the hospitality warm and friendly, the service very attentive and - last but not least - the food delicious. I always choose to go there on... More

Had a table on the deck in the garden and was lovely. We were the only people in the garden for Sunday lunch. Food was great as usual and the service is always good. Make sure you go here if you are local and don't let the street it's on put you off!
