Very disappointed. Service was very good, food very bad. Maybe there is a new chef. My fish was very fishy and strong. I should have sent it back, but they were very busy so left it. 2 members of the party had pasta, both said it was just ok. Wouldn't go back.

So rare to visit a restaurant where it's obvious from the moment you walk in that everyone cares about your experience but thats Il Teatro - I'm actually reluctant to review as I'd love to keep this hidden gem a secret a little longer but everyone should visit this lovely little bistro. Greeted on arrival - no fuss we didn't... More

Wow, what a fabulous hidden gem we found in Il Teatro. Tucked around a side street just off of Rue d'Antibes, at first we thought it was just a little café bistro, but we were delighted to find inside a wonderfully atmospheric restaurant with live music and a superb menu, wonderful staff and all very reasonably priced! Bravo Il Teatro,... More

Came here for dinner in a large group (more than 20) and the server handled our group very very well, he was very attentive to every guest and remained polite and pleasant throughout. The appetiser plate we had was impressive and delicious. I felt the entree was a bit disappointing, with the beef being a bit tough and the flavours... More

Italian influenced restaurant. outdoor seating attractive. But food while ok was uninspired. There are numerous choices nearby with better value for money and certainly better food

Very friendly staff, provided us with several amazing recommendations. Great place for a late dinner with friends. They had plenty of outdoor seating and good drinks. I would recommend the lobster bisque ravioli and tiramisu. They even gave us complimentary marshmallows with our check!

I took my family here at around 7pm only to be to greeted by a moody waiter who said you will have to wait to be served as everybody is on break (at 7pm??). We sat down and were not even given menus! After 5 minutes we left- only to find the waiter sitting at the table playing on his... More
