We spent 7 nights in London, had 6 breakfasts and 3 dinners here. The nights we weren't here we were at a show. Great food, reasonably priced, and the staff are brilliant. Made our trip to London even more special. Do yourself a favour.

Our new favourite for breakfast. Hearty, well cooked, tasty and coffee to die for. Great location close to the Palace with attentive staff. Humorous chat about Serie A while devouring my Eggs, Smoke Salmon and Sourdough. Staff at our hotel EAT HERE. It's lovely.

I had told my wife I wanted a traditional English breakfast for lunch so I was a bit dismayed when I saw that she had taken me to a small Italian Bistro. How wrong my first impression was though. We had a delicious Sunday brunch at Bongusto and I had a fabulous traditional English Breakfast. Everything was delicous and freshly... More

The first impression you get when you enter this restaurant is like you're entering a house in Italy. We had breakfast(try the eggs benedict, sooo delish) and diner (classic carbonara pasta. I had a food orgasm. You must try the tiramisu with a cappucino) and the food and the service was equally excellent. The prices are reasonable. Special mention to... More

As a runner who likes to travel, I'm always looking for good Italian places in my destinations (got to have those carbohydrates), and I certainly found it here. Very pleased with my meal, as was my son, and found the prices and portions more than acceptable.

I stopped at Bongusto for breakfast on Saturday before going to watch Changing of the Guard; this was a great find!! The service was excellent and very polite, and the breakfast was really good and a good price too. Both myself and my friend had the 'New Yorker', which is pancakes with bacon and scrambled egg - it was really... More

SOOOOOO glad we did not listen to the hotel concierge who tried to steer us to some other Italian restaraunt nearby. This was the best dinner we had all week! Food was OUTSTANDING ! True authentic Italian. We hail from near Boston and stopped in the Italian North End on our way to the airport coming to London. Bon Gusto... More

Staying in Westminster

Neighborhood Profile
If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square, and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just up the road as well. As captivating as the architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are highlights of the area too. St James's Park (arguably London's loveliest), the expansive Green Park, and pedestrian friendly tree lined paths along the river showcase the exquisite manicure provided by English gardeners. Just beyond the landmarks and the gorgeous outdoor spaces, quiet residential squares and age old local pubs offer a more subdued take on this global seat of power in the heart of London.
