“Very Good Italian cuisine nicely cooked for you”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

We would recommend : please make a reservation. Small restaurant, Italian menu, everything we had 0 we were 4 - was great. It is also reasonably priced considering other restaurants around. Well located. Keep the address with you as there is no big sign. Lasagna was good, meat was good, pasta too and what about tiramisu and cappuccino. Lovely.

“Dissapointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

Nice looking little restaurant, very much Italian atmosphere. Small menu, but something for everyone. However a few dissapointments. 1. antipasto was all cramped on one too small plate. The octopus juice side to side with tortilla and cheese, which now tasted like octopus. Not tasty, especialy for the vegetarian on the table. 2. Main was filet which was mediocre. Too rare (no cuison was asked) and just not very impressive for the money. 3. The housewine (red) was very nice but service a bit too slow. Given the mid level pricetag, we were dissapointed.

“Fabulous Italian experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

We stopped into Caffe 500 for a glass of wine and light snack. This place is for real. Authentic Italian from Umbria. We shared a combo antipasto plate, with salami, salmon, grilled veggies, bruschetta, mozzarella, hams, others wonderful delicacies. Very nice surprise. In a nice museum quarter neighborhood. Sat at the bar so had an opportunity to chat with the wait staff.

“One of the best authentic family run Italian restaurants we've been to for ages”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

Simple but deliciously tasty dishes, the ingredients obviously carefully selected. Limited but quite adequate choices for each of the four courses, antipasti, pasta, main and dolci.
We were four, thus enabling us to order and try each of the four choices on offer, (not the pasta...too much).
Would recommend mixing and matching in this way, you'll be very pleased that you had the chance to sample each dish.
The welcome and service throughout the evening was both charming and attentive, the atmosphere warm and friendly.
Essential to book, the restaurant's small and popular.
Cooking doesn't need to be fancy to be delicious, wish we had a Café 500 near us in SW London!
Can't wait to return on our next visit.
