“A great, friendly little place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2013

I am a frequent visitor to London as my wife is undergoing treatment at Guy's Hospital. I am from Gibraltar. This little restaurant not only offers a wide variety of pasta and rice dishes, it also offers 'food in a bun' for those who are rushed for time. I go there for lunch every day and I do not need to repeat the same plate every time as there is great menu to choose from. I find the food there is tasty and fresh, much as I would get at home, with generous portions to boot! The service is friendly and excellent from the staff who come from different parts of the world. I totally recommend giving it a visit. Well done and keep it up!

“Buzzy, friendly, and much better than Mcdonalds over the road”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2013

I had intended to visit this place for a long time. I visit Guys hospital quite often and only eat at Mcdonald's in severely desperate circumstances. Spiazzo is a much better option.

It is a very lively café which sells a good variety of food and the coffee is very good too. I like the décor which replicates cafes in Italy very well. And the staff which hail from all over Europe are simply wonderful.

All in all a very nice experience. Well done. especially to Katy and Igna.

“A little gem not to be missed if you're near the Shard!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

Made straight for this little cafe after visiting the Shard (thanks to previous reviews). It was still bustling at 2.30.
It all looked appetising and it was hard to decide between a panini or mains. We tried the chicken, bacon and avocado salad and a lasagna. Both good sized helpings and delicious. The berry smoothie and house red were good too. The service was excellent and the prices very reasonable.
Be prepared to pay by cash if you don't want to incur a credit-card charge (according to a fellow diner) - though this might only apply to low-value purchases.
Would I go back? Absolutely!
