Artigiano shows just how glossy Italian high style can be, with its stylish chrome interior, high-concept lighting, rear glass ceiling, and glass front that opens like pairs of welcoming arms when the weather allows. Don't miss the 'Oscar' donated by a satisfied diner. Lunches are relaxed and calm, while dinners are buzzier. The confident, modern Italian menu's most popular dish is the spaghetti with fresh crab and rocket with a spicy crab sauce. Old favourites have got a delicious new twist, like carpaccio with homemade pesto dressing or calf's liver with wild mushrooms and fava beans. High style, great food. Please be aware, bookings for Saturday nights must be booked at least 2 weeks in advance.

Dinner

Food was very good, but got order slightly wrong. Staff were friendly but service could have been better. Still a very enjoyable evening and would visit again.

I see where other reviewers are coming from. We booked well in advance and asked for a window seat as it can get very hot. This was confirmed. We did not get one. Small point but if you make a specific request and it is accepted then you hope it will be honoured. Food and wine were very good. We... More

I am somewhat surprised by this recent review..It is our policy to never guarantee a specific table, and I would be pleased if this customer contacted us to see exactly what was said on his booking and who took the booking. Our policy on booking is to say we will do our best to give the table requested but cannot... More

We went with friends for dinner. Had a nice meal, service was fine. For dessert we asked how many scoops of ice cream are in one portion. We were told three, my husband said he would have two and I would have the other one. We were charged £9.50 for the two. When we queried this, we were told by... More

Sometimes I wonder what I did wrong in my youth by entering the catering profession.I actually dealt with this customer and find it surprising that he felt so put out that he had to mention it in tripadvisor, All I can surmise is that maybe he expected to get his ice cream for free. There was a discussion with this... More

It was quite clear to us from the moment of our arrival at the restaurant that, in order to receive decent service, one had to be a member of the "in" crowd, known to the restaurant staff. We were not members of this elite group and were therefore treated accordingly. The food was good, if not spectacular, and the service... More

I regret that this customer felt put out and made the comment that to get good device one has to be in the in crowd , and yet he also states the service was fine?

I am not someone who often bothers with writing reviews but I think there have been a few unfair comments posted previously so here goes. I have been to Artigiano over the last 10 years. I frequented Artigiano last night (Fri eve) and was not disappointed. I had the spaghetti vongole and my friend the truffle ravioli to start. Both... More

My husband and I came here one weekday evening on the spur of the moment as we were looking to move to the area. We have in fact now moved very close. We went straight for main course – my husband went for a pasta and myself the seabass which was above average. There was no parmesan or pepper offering... More

Firstly I would like to welcome this reviewer to the area and for making her first review. As always we value reviews be they good or bad and where valid points are raised we do try to improve. I regret that this reviewer was stunned by some of my replies and found them intimidating, this was never my intention. I... More

I have been to this popular up-market Italian restaurant three times in twenty years. I go back because I forget the disappointment I have had after that period of time, and it does look so good. It is a delightful space, in a delightful spot (Belsize Village) with a good ambience, plenty of helpful staff, a good wine list and... More

I remember this table and the night in question..I must admit that on this day the restaurant was swamped and customers all arrived at the same time and the kitchen did not perform as per the norm and a few clients did have to wait. This is regrettable and we are trying to put in place checks to improve. However... More

Our party of 8x were looking forward to a lovely Saturday night dinner at this popular Italian restaurant. It's actually quite smart, just the right level of lighting, presentable staff and then the meal.... Not so good. The manager got our order wrong so the asparagus was missing the duck egg. In fairness he quickly sorted this out, but added... More

I visited Artigiano twice before booking it for my birthday party. On both occasions the food was excellent. I had the sea bass and my wife took veal.
