We went here with friend's who were visiting us from London on Saturday they enjoyed it so much and commented how the food was better then some of their favourite restaurants in London. This was our third visit and as usual the food was superb along with the warm and friendly service. This is genuine freshly cooked Italian cuisine, I... More

Always a lovely meal, cooked with passion and generosity - always turn up hungry in pasta night as you'll be spoiled for choice with the delicious sauces, and gluten free available. Fantastic refurb which extends the ground floor, gives a different more Mediterranean ambience, nice light fittings and comfy chairs. Worth a visit if you haven't been for a while

We moved recently to Leighton and quite a few people we know recommended Martini. We decided to book for Saturday and we were lucky to get a table for 6.30. Staff was very friendly and place very quickly got busy. Food was simply delicious and cook to a high standard. The only disadvantage was the fact that we sat at... More

I have been coming to Martini for around 20 years. The quality of the food has been consistently high. The owners and staff are very welcoming. In the summer the courtyard is beautiful I visited with three friends for a pre theatre dinner on Wednesday night. The food was delicious as always. Plus the new renovations are looking fab!

Hadn't been here for a while. Couldn't remember why! The waitress was friendly and the atmosphere was very good. However the food was very average. Not one of the best meals I've had. Actually one of my worst. The mixed seafood was limp and soggy. Almost like it had come from a microwave. Shame really as I'd like to say... More

Dear Chris B.... Thank you for taking the time to write a review, it is such a shame that you did not have the guts or the respect for our restaurant to say on the night that you did not enjoy your meal. I remember you very well as you were the most unfriendly person I have had to serve... More

Excellent long established traditional Italian restaurant. Great ambiance for special occasions. Although not cheap certainly great value for special nights out.

Atmosphere, a most friendly welcome, and we were enjoying the evening within a minute of entering the restaurant. The selection of pasta dishes made our choice difficult, but we all agreed that our own particular dish was absolutely delicious. We cannot think of one thing that could have improved the meal.

Martinis is a family owned restaurant which serves great Italian food, cooked by an Italian chef (no chains or imitations here). The restaurant has two floors, although the staircase to the upper level is narrow and low. The main menu is fairly static ( I have visited many times) , but there are always specials to account for. The Mozzarella... More
