As one of the very first reviewers (5,600 plus viewed my comments) we are very sad to have passed by today and see it has the windows whited out, signs and menus gone lights out and a new concern opening soon...What a bore. Have no idea what or why but I wish them the best. Robin

Finally checked out our local Italian.... strange atmosphere-less restaurant (turn the music up a tad!), brightly-lit so it feels like a café, and kitted out in some seriously uninspired décor - and really uncomfortable chairs. BUT then the food comes out. And it's great. Authentic Italian. A good menu and a specials menu. Meat portions are huge. Only snag was... More

I eat at Il Fiume on a regular basis, the staff are always friendly, welcoming and happy to see you! The food here is amazing, full of flavour, and the huge portions are often hard to finish, but I somehow find a way! I eaten here in large groups as well as a couple and smaller tables and always had... More

We visited Il Fiume on a Saturday evening after consulting trip advisor and found this rated no 1 in Kingston. As settled Kingstonians we were surprised as we had never heard of it. It is a small restaurant just over the river from Kingston town centre. The service is therefore quite personable, It is in need of redecoration as it... More

I went with my wife after a day of house hunting in the area, We are both obsessed with good food and we did a bit of research on internet about restaurants in the area. When we got in the first impression i have to admit wasn't great and the place in my modest opinion needs a bit of improvement... More

Forget about high street Italian restaurants... Here you find the real Italian flavours ( and no pizza) cooked by original Italian chef ( he comes often to tables at the service end) Food is amazing, service ok, price excellent and real flavours that you won't find from frozen junks
