Foor was great, cooked very well - and I asked for a change to the menu. The staff seemed happy for the adjustment, and didn't charge extra! Atmosphere is sort of elegant bistro, but they pull it off well. wine list is pretty good, and goes nicely with the food. Highly recommend the calamari, and chicken escalopes!

Very mediocre meal with some poorly trained staff that aren't really interested in your feedback. Won't be going back.

This restaurant deserves more recognition; I cannot compliment it enough! Delicious wine, great service and the sea food risotto was one of the best meals I've had in a very long time! Thoroughly recommend Il Giardino (and they have 30% discount on Mondays)!

Came here with my boyfriend for a meal and we thought it was absolutely delicious! 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
