Ended up here on Friday night with friends. We were staying in the area and looking for somewhere that was not outlandishly expensive. We really struck lucky here! The staff were so friendly and attentive (every time one of us reached for the water jug or wine bottle someone appeared and topped our glasses up for us). When we looked... More

I can't review the food, as I left before eating. I never usually leave bad reviews, but felt the need to share this awful experience in hope of preventing others from enduring a similar thing. I entered this restaurant in hope of a pleasant family meal, unfortunately that wasn't to be. I had barely been in the place 10 minutes... More

Our last night in London, we stumbled upon this delightful restaurant, the service was fantastic, the staff was friendly, and knew how to treat their customers. The food, dinner and desert, was delicious (also, extremely filling). It was an unexpected find, which turned out to be lucky for us. If you like Italian food and a warm, welcoming atmosphere, than... More

Ate here 3 times for lunch this week as the food was great. Good salad, pasta, house Chianti, etc. Moderately price and service very good. Weather was terrible and restaurant was close to hotel. We had a range of dishes and everything was consistent, well cooked, well seasoned. The spagetti with olive oil garlic and chilli was a favorite. Insalata... More

We have been here before and always enjoy the good food and the bantering and good service of the staff. It was a relaxing lunch and a good visit with a friend without being rushed to leave.

We wanted traditional Italian after eating at too many English Pubs and found Bizarro online, we had no idea what to expect, but everything was amazing. The waiter was an adorable Italian man, who had to leave halfway through our meal to play poker. He left us in the hands of an attractive young Italian male, which was great. We... More

This lovely little Italian is deceptively large, with seating downstairs for when it's crowded. Upstairs, the tables are set inside and out. When we visited, in October, it was a chilly but sunny day so we sat at a table in the window and watched the mixed bunch that us Bayswater crowd go by. The elderly owner of the Bizarro... More

Being in London it's hard to find restaurants that don't cost an absolute fortune! This restaurant is defiantly value for money! We had one soft drink, one pint of larger, cheesy garlic pizza bread, two spaghetti dishes and chips all for £35!!! And the food was delicious! The service was quick but you also weren't rushed! Staff were really friendly... More

Very good, but the veal was unusually tough. Our server was very good in taking care of the problem quickly.

Convenient to our hotel. We ate there twice. Had Petto di Pollo ai Funghi Porcini, first visit, which was a roasted chicken breast served with a very tasty mushroom sauce was very good. Second trip, tried the special, Chicken Cacciatore. Also very good.
