“Excellent food, reasonably priced”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

We are spending the night at the Radisson Blu Edwardian prior to an early morning flight tomorrow. Just back from having a meal at La Basilica , a 10 minute walk away. It doesn't look very enticing from the outside and to be honest, doesn't get much better once inside but the service was friendly and the food delicious. We had bruschetta and mozzarella garlic bread to start. Both obviously freshly cooked and very good. Followed by penne al pesto and a pizza generously topped with anchovies onions and olives. A large glass of house red and a coke and the bill came to £32 including service charge. We thought the food head and a shoulders above the Italian chain restaurants (Zizzi, Prezzo etc) it tasted freshly made, ingredients were good, portions were large and it was all piping hot. Would definitely recommend this restaurant if you want to avoid the excessive charges at the Heathrow hotels.

“Poor but cheap for the area”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

Called in prior to dropping of Family at Heathrow. Its most redeeming feature is that it’s close to the airport and has free parking. The service was poor there were 5 of us eating 4 meals came after a short delay one was fully 10 minutes later. The pizzas looked and tasted like they were frozen from a supermarket. As somebody else mentioned the food is cheap enough but the drinks are overpriced for what is more or less a café.

“Good food at reasonable prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

We had two very good pasta dishes, a super pizza complete with flaming Sambucca, 5 drinks and a dessert for just on £50. A good alternative if staying at the Park Inn.

“EXCELLENT FOOD AND SERVICE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

It is a bit canteenish looking and they could do a lot to warm the place up and make it look more welcoming, however, once inside the staff are lovely and make you feel really welcome and the food is excellent and extremely well priced. If staying at a Heathrow hotel, especially the Park Inn (its just over the road) go there for food and drinks as very good and much more reasonable that hotel prices.
