“Just love Pendolino”
Reviewed 23 February 2012

One of my favourite Italian restaurants - the food is as good as you get in the city, the location is wonderful in such a historical building as The Strand.
The only problem - and this depends on your own perspective - is that it is a very lively, vital and fun place.
If you are looking for a quiet twosmoe, the enjoyment around you might be intimidating

“A Grand Trip to Italy”
Reviewed 20 February 2012

From the moment we arrived at the reception Pendolino we had the feeling that we in Florence or Milan. Our waiter and sommelier added further to this informing us of the meals and wine choices in beautiful Italian accented English. The food itself lived up to expectation and choosing the house specialties turned out to be a wise choice as the dishes were divine..

“all in all, horrible experience”
Reviewed 19 February 2012

Dark and dingy restaurant stuffed with people, the meals tasted like they had been dipped in salt and the wine tasted very cheap for what they were charging.

The staff had attitude and the manager seemed very incompetent even when asking the simplest of questions.

and all of this for a price tag of $380

I would've preferred Mc donalds.
