“Good food, enormous portions!”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

Il Bordello is the best restaurant in Wapping and is pretty much constantly full so booking is recommended. Enormous portions of good Italian food with a focus on fish. Be sure to try the grilled squid. The garlic pizza bread starter is really good too.

“A great night.”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

We eat here with family whenever visiting London. Always made most welcome, always a great atmosphere, always superb food. The waiters are fantastic, good fun with attentive service, able to recite and describe whole specials menu without looking at it! I just love this place and clearly lots of others do too.
Very good value for money.

“A Fun Little Restaurant”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

Very decent Italian food with a monster of a menu and specials. All Italian staff who are most charming, helpful and professional in every way. We all enjoyed the food with very good portions. Probably in need of a little refurb as it is looking a little tired in places, especially in view of the money it must be be making as it always seems to be packed. So make sure you book

“Fantastic pasta”
Reviewed August 16, 2013 via mobile

The place itself is a little cramped, but the quality of the food makes up for it.
I had starters and Ravioli crab.
Both was excellent. Thinking back I should have opted for the dessert instead of the starter when I saw what other people ordered.

“Excellent food, but tables far too close together”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

I have eaten here before and have always been impressed by the quality of the food and the service and last night was no exception. They cope well with a busy evening. However this was my first time on a table for 2 people. The tables are pushed so close together they are touching and you can't have any private conversation at all. For me going out is about both the food and the company and as I felt we couldn't talk it will sadly definitely put me off going back
