“ALWAYS EXCELLENT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

I eat at Bar Remo at least once a week, and have visited countless times over the last two years. The food has always been brilliant with a great selection and I have never been dissapointed, I am a personal trainer so I am REALLY picky about what I eat, so I am hard to please, so that goes to show you that its good. But, the service is what I really go for: everyone is very friendly and attentive and your always made to feel at home and welcome. It has a great Italian family feel to it and for where it is located (right by oxford circus) it is cheap to eat. The term you get what you pay for doesnt apply here, as the price certainly doesnt represent what food and service you are given. They love a birthday celebration there too, so if your celebrating, this is the place to go as they can cater for large groups. Breakfasts and coffee are great there too.

“Fantastic spot close to Oxford Circus”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

This place has great food and is fantastic value. It is busy and the tables are quite close together, but the service is good and friendly and there is a good choice on the menu. It's probably not a place to linger in the evening, as the chairs are not the most comfortable, but if you are looking for somewhere for lunch with friends or a bit to eat after shopping, this place is highly recommended.

“An authentic neighbourhood trattoria in Central London”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012

Believe the hype, this place really is excellent. In an area dominated by faceless chains and pretentiously "trendy" overpriced restaurants it stands out even more. I was utterly suspicious when I went there for the first time because usually in the Oxford Circus/Piccadilly area you get absolutely rubbish value for money. However, we all loved it (group of six) and have been back frequently. Huge portions of very tasty homemade food, cheerfully friendly and helpful staff (I doubt many are Italians, though, my guess is Balkans/Eastern Europe), and very good value for money, especially considering the location. I asked the waitress to recommend a good white wine and without hesitation she pointed at one of the cheapest on the menu and it really was very good. You'd expect this sort of place in your neighbourhood but not the centre of London. I sincerely hope this genuinely magnificent restaurant will be around for a long time to come. Please visit and defy the ever-growing global chain culture that's robbing us of culinary variety.
