Great restaurant , food and service. Book as always busy. Staff very attentive food delicious although in my opinion portions are too big, would prefer slightly smaller and cheaper then i could manage starter, main and dessert.

I have eaten at Il Bordello twice now, and both times have been very enjoyable. The theme is Italian, but they have quite a wide menu selection built around that theme. The food is excellently cooked and the portions are on the large size. On my more recent visit, I had an antipasti of calamari; this was not on the menu but when available when I asked. For a main course I had some ‘melt in the mouth’ lamb’s liver, served as thin slices with a sauce. They also had a good selection of reasonably priced wines. The service was excellent.

Il Bordello is hidden away in Wapping, down near the river on Wapping High Street, about 300 yards to the west of Wapping Station.

We have eaten here on a number of occasions and never been disappointed. 7.30pm and full to bursting says it all. Remember to book.

I have been here three times now and each time the food is lovely with generous portions, the Lasagne is the best I have had in an Italian restaurant. The steaks are really good as well. The staff are very attentive and make you feel welcome. This restaurant is extemely busy so you must book well in advance.

Our all-time favourite restaurant for family celebrations. Food amazing and the portions are extremely generous. Waiters always very attentive while not being intrusive with a friendly greeting. It always has a real buzz!! I love it!! Don't know when other not so good reviewers have been but I have always found the food to be really good.
