Description: The newest arrival to the Biagio family, Biagio @ Bankside occupies a fabulous position just off of the Southwark Bridge. Close to everything the wonderful Bankside has to offer this restaurant follows the tried and tested Biagio formula of contemporary-meets-traditional surroundings, warm Italian welcome and great value food. Authentic in every sense, the menu is a wonderful breath of fresh Italian air, combining the best of all regions with its fantastic meat and fish dishes, fresh, delicious pasta and, of course, a selection of wonderful pizzas which put the average Italian chain restaurant to shame. The large bar area provides a relaxing space in which to enjoy an aperitif or to digest your meal as you finish your evening in style.

“What a dive!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2011

We booked a late table for a group of colleagues only to arrive to find out they do not serve food that late and that the restaurant had turned into a club with loud music pumping out onto the street.
The doorman was quite rude to us considering we had a booking and made no attempt to rectify the situation or apologise.
To be honest having then seen the outside of the restaurant, it was on a secluded back street and looked very poor quality and so i think they did us a favour. This restaurant is not at all as advertised on their website!
