Went to Il Bianco to make a change from nearby La Figa - but food choice was pretty much the same, including roast potatoes (why?) but not so extensive. The main difference was the cramped seating and the noise. It was like sitting in the foyer of a busy office block. We were a party of three placed on a table for two, despite our reservation. But were told we couldn’t be moved to a bigger table as it gets particularly busy between 7pm to 9pm. Really. So we had to forgo a sharing pizza and endure the constant view of the waiter’s backside every time he served the very nearby table. The service was good, the food fine, although the chicken, cheese and ham a little salty, but meal let down by the ambience. Three starters, three main meals, two wines, two beers and one water, just over £100. Not for an intimate meal, reminded of a busy canteen, sit, eat and leave…and we did.

A superb meal and such friendly warm service. You would never believe that such a nice restaurant lurks underneath a block of flats

I travel to London for business on a regular but not frequent basis. I usually stay in the Canary Wharf area and originally came across this based on convenient location but now I make an effort to visit whenever I have the chance. The menu is quite broad, the food and ingredients are very fresh, the food is well prepared, the service is terrific and the prices are very fair - seriously, what more could you ask for? Today was a very basic meal of minestrone soup (with more of a chicken stock, few tomatoes, but tons of fresh vegetables followed by veal cutlet Milanese simply, but deliciously prepared with fresh vegetables and oven roasted potatoes. Generous portions and very fair price. The house white and the house red were both quite good and the waiter very professional and courteous. I will definitely return!

we visited on a Thursday evening at 6pm - right when the restaurant opened. the staff were very welcoming and friendly.

we had a glass of the house red wine, which was recommended to us - it was fabulous!

we both had bruschetta to start - it was lovely, with plenty of tomato and a nice salad, and so filling!

I had a pizza which was the best i've ever had - it was HUGE and all the ingredients were top quality, you could tell. My friend had the spaghetti bolognese which looked delicious and she said was fantastic! again, it was a huge portion and delicious!

it was great value for money and would definitely go back if I was in London!
