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.

Great Valentine's night

Even though the restaurant was busy being Valentine's night - the service was impeccable and the food as always excellent. The beetroot soup was to die for! Parking can be a little difficult at times, but well worth the effort. The staff were polite attentive and the whole evening was a delight.

We recently enjoyed out first evening meal here. The atmosphere was happy and vibrant and the service was good. We ate the antipasti and asparagus wrapped in ham with egg and hollandaise sauce. We shared a whole seabass as the mains and an uneventful sorbet after. The food was good, you could not fault it, but it really is just... More

Consistently good fish and pastas here. I regularly go for the whole sea bream, which is always good, and love the fried zucchinis to go with it.

Am new to the neighbourhood so was thrilled to have found a good local restaurant ,until the manager was called to sort out a question with the bill. We both ordered liver which was served with sweet potato mash. We asked for spinach instead of the mash, which seemed not to have been a problem. Both the liver and spinach... More

Well you cannot please everybody all the time. And it is not nice to be called average. However on checking Kucho's reviews throughout the known world, it would seem that the word average, used at least 14 times in his reviews and applied to some restaurants that unlike Kucho I personally rate highly could be seen as complimentary and to...

This was our second visit to Artigiano in as many months. Last time was for dinner, this time for lunch. Oddly enough none of the staff who were present on the first occasion were present this time, however the service was really excellent on both occasions. The food was delicious on both of our visits with some individual twists on... More

I enjoyed a beautiful evening at the Artigiano Restaurant last night with my friend and 10 year old daughter. We came across the lovely place accidentally whilst having an early evening stroll. The tables laid outside in front of the restaurant with fresh crisp white linen table clothes were very inviting. The staff were extremely obliging, seating us in an... More

We regret that you found our service poor and that the waiter forgot to return promptly with your refill jug of tap water. Once again we must apologise for the waiters horrendous mistake in giving you the wrong bill. Regarding the candle however we normally only light these later in the evening,when we dim the lights,but at your request the... More

A dispiriting experience. My massively pregnant wife wasn't offered any water until we'd been sat for nearly ten minutes. We were struggling to get anyone's attention so we could order for far, far too long - nobody came to check on us. The glass of wine I ordered didn't arrive until I was three quarters of the way through my... More
