“This is how it's done”
Reviewed December 13, 2012 via mobile

What can I say, fabulous food, great service a little gem of a cafe. This is one of my personal favourite cafe bars and will be featured in my forthcoming review. Fish n chips was extremely well presented. Batter crisp and light. Chips crisp on the outside and fluffy texture on the inside. Coffee / hot chocolate good, steak sandwich very good and well presented. Olives were given along with bread as a complementary starter. This was only a one off due to a seasonal preview sale event. The selections of breads at the preview event was very good and presented at the right temperature. The onion bread was particular very good. Once again I congratulate Nick and the Arighi staff yet again for a wonderful experience.
Best wishes

“Quality and Consistency”
Reviewed December 9, 2012

We have been coming to Arighi cafe since the days of the spiral staircase and harpist and every visit has been enjoyable. The lasagne equals any we've had in Italy, the specials and other dishes are all good. And the cakes are amazing! Portions are a good size and for what you get and the quality, it is NOT expensive. The service is excellent and the seating comfortable and spacious. All in all it is a nice place to be.
A request - could you offer afternoon tea at a set price (on tiered cake stands) and would it be possible to open at least one night a week? You've obviously got a superb chef and his Italian expertise would be appreciated by those not able to visit during the day.

“It's not just the store that is quality”
Reviewed December 9, 2012

This was our first visit to Arighi Bianchi as we were looking for some new furniture. We had heard that the cafe bar was excellent so we went for lunch with our 2 children aged 2 and 6. It is fantastic! Beautiful quality food cooked by a chef (not a cook!) all prepared and cooked on the premises. The food was truly exceptional, the staff were friendly and helpful with our children. One word of advice, leave room for dessert, the cakes are as good as you could find anywhere. All cooked on site, they are gorgeous. The dilemma was which to go for. We will be back again soon. Don't wait until you need new furniture, this cafe bar is as good as you'll find. Totally recommend it. It will exceed your expectations.
