On a trip where overall service (hotel and restaurants) was less than stellar, Bizarro was a nice surprise. Really enjoyed the vibe, great service and good food (at reasonable prices) - will be back when I'm in the area next time.

After a day of travel we were hunting for a place to eat and found this restaurant just down from our hotel. Turned out to have great food and a nice wait staff. The food was great and would go back if in the area again.

Was dragged there by one of my colleagues who had liked their food and was not disappointed. We sat on outside, which which was very nice, they have a Maitre D' cum Bouncer who was impressive getting people to walk on or in :-)-O Italian food, very well done, with very good service, nothing wrong there.

The waiters are enthusiastic although the last time we went he forgot that we were still waiting for our starters- but was worth the wait. Would advise everyone to... More

My orignal review very much still stands. We popped in for a quick lunch before our train home (out of Paddington) and experienced another nice meal with attentive staff. Pasta all round which was very tasty. They understood we wanted to be quick and rose to the challange. Thanks Bizarro we will be back.

We were fitted in immediately even though we had not booked. Food was very good, unfortunately our waiter was not. He managed to get nearly everything wrong.

Fell out of Paddington Station, hungry, thirsty and in need of civilised respite. Wandered down Craven Road and here it was. The most excellent corner of Italy. Veal and chicken made the day start with a bang and the "house white" was excellent - always drink that which the patron suggests. Good indicator as to the sense of purpose of... More

Had a meal with my wife at Bizarro last weekend having purchased a 3 course couples meal via a Red Letter Day gift for my 40th. The restaurant was very busy, but fitted us in straight away, we were crammed into a table upstairs next to 2 Americans, it felt like the restaurant equivalent of a battery chicken farm. We... More
