Visited for both breakfast and lunch as staying at St James Court down the street. Breakfast was fast, tasty and very filling - though pricy, it was quite a good value of food. Lunch was a disappointment, however. I would come back for breakfast, but would take a pass on lunch.

Located within a row of other restaurants and in a very affluent area of the City, we picked a winner here! What attracted us in through the front door was a combination of the Menu - a good variety of traditional Italian, combined with a simple and uncluttered Restaurant layout, all of which visitors can see from the street.

Went for breakfast. Good choice of food. All served very quickly. Tasty and great value. You are made to feel very welcome and I ended up there for well over an hour. I will certainly use this place again and look forward to so doing.

My wife and I regularly eat at Bongusto not only for the excellent food but because of the charming service. The restaurant provides a varied menu with dishes of the day to enhance what is on offer. Service is always fast and efficient and I can highly recommend this traditional Italian eatery.

It's on the corner of Petty France and Buckingham Gate just a short 5 minute stroll from where all the Palace visits commence. The service is great, the food was good quality and generous portions. I'm not sure that I would have wanted to sit 'alfresco' but I guess if you are a smoker that would be a great combination... More

We had dinner and breakfast here both meals were great and well priced. Staff were great and very friendly they greeted us like family " your back" such a change from some of the average service on offer in London. What this venue lacks in decor it makes up for in reasonably priced food just like an Italian mumma makes.... More
