After coming back from a holiday in Italy this year it was lovely to find somewhere that serves authentic fresh Italian food! The filet steak was cooked perfectly and was a lot bigger than expected ! The salmon was also beautiful and cooked very well... More

After visiting here for a family meal one Monday evening I can safely say none of us will be returning. We thought we'd give it a go after hearing mixed opinions on the place but at 50% off we didn't have much to loose, or so we thought!!

I finally visited this restaurant last night and we wished we'd thought to do it sooner! My family are a group of very difficult eaters: my brother being super fussy, me having... More

We visited on a Sunday when it was rather quiet so the service wasn't the hottest, although the food was amazing. I had the spag bol (best I've had) and the lady had the sea breem, both of which cost £6 each and both of which tasted sensational and were perfectly cooked. The ambience of the restaurant is rather strange... More

The food was wonderful, great choice on the menu. Very accommodating service especially as we had small impatient children! Lovely staff, friendly patrons :)

Possibly the worst "Italian" that's ever been! The food was the best thing about this place, and that was dreadful. Service was just awful! Don't do it seriously!

My partners family live in Bishops Stortford and have visited Il Giardino for lunch and dinner. My perfect dinner is giant, includes pasta, creamy cheesy sauces and is accompanied by great wine. All gets a massive tick for me at Il Giardino. Italian is my favourite cuisine. However, It is a struggle to get an Italian restaurant that offers a... More
