Three of us went to the restaurant on Thursday and liked it so much we went again today. Fantastic food and also service. The Sirloin Steak was perfect and great value also. I can not reccomend this restaurant enough.

Whichever is going to be your main course choice will be safe. Pasta sauces are amazing however i always go for any grilled seafood as is not... More

Had dinner at Bordello, its located at a quiet neighborhood a few blocks away from the Tower of Lindon. The menu has pizza, pasta, chicken, steak..... Everything... Its worth visiting since everything is great. The prices are affordable and service amazing!

I live close so we often eat there. Always busy great atmosphere and service. All the staff is Italian. In my opinion they do one of the best pizzas in London. Other dishes are great but could improve.

This is not posh food - but it is great food. We love going here and are always delighted to share it with good friends. The staff are superb and even if it is a number of months since your last visit they still remember you and welcome you with open arms (and good food). As you walk in the... More

Having lived around the area for over 2 years we simply cannot find anywhere better than il bordello. The food and service are both fantastic. The atmosphere is relaxed and informal - perfect for a meal with friends or after work wind-down! We will never stop returning to this wonderful place!
