The real deal high-end Italian restaurant with authentic food and service. We started with the Burrata which was rich and creamy. I had the pesto gnocchi for the main course which was perfectly cooked and seasoned and the tiramisu dessert was incredible.

My kids love this place and their pizza, so when I was invited for a business lunch, I was really looking forward. And to be honest, the staff was absolutely a 5, but the lighting is too strong, the decoration lacks a certain style and...More

The starters like Zuchini Fritters, Burrata and in the main course - Pizza- all were delicious. The Tiramisu was excellent. But the service was pathetic- they got the starters but not the drinks. They got the main course but forgot the salads.More

Rarely one for booking ahead, so en route Marylebone, this place seemed feasible and interesting. Pleasant surprise! The prawn beans truffle salad is delicate beautifully balanced. A simple veg pizza, thin crust and charred sliced veg. Light and very pretty. Sorry, so hungry, no photos!...More

This is a truly authentic Italian restaurant in Marylebone close to Durrants Hotel and the Wallace Collection. We have only sat upstairs where there are few tables--adjacent to an outside window and have enjoyed the tranquillity and ambiance of this space. Downstairs is a much...More

Marylebone offers what so many London neighbourhoods
cannot: a village feel coupled with urban convenience.
Much of its success rests in its location. Wedged
between the northeastern corner of Hyde Park and the
southern end of Regent's Park and with a number of
Tube stations within easy reach, Marylebone is as
pedestrian friendly as Central London gets. The
bustling shopping mecca of Oxford Street separates it

Il Baretto Wine Bar and Restaurant in London's very happening Marylebone Village is another winner from the stable of restaurateur Arjun Waney, who brought you the stellar Roka, Zuma and La Petite Maison. If you're looking for a super Italian cuisine and would like to avoid both chain restaurants and designer price tags, Il Baretto in Blandford Street is an excellent choice. Located between Marylebone High Street and Baker Street, Il Baretto has a smart wine bar located on the ground floor and a cavernous basement dining room that is a stylish restaurant for group parties and celebrations. Popular with a local crowd, as well as with tourists and shoppers from Bond Street, this restaurant serves up authentic Italian recipes and we love the spaghetti con astice with lobster, sweet chilli and garlic sauce, and the risotto ai carciofi, a creamy artichoke risotto. Pizzas and dishes from the robata grill are winners too.
