Super friendly staff, beautiful authentic food! Best pasta I've ever eaten. The beef ragu and truffle fungi parpadelle was delicious! Nice laid back atmosphere and reasonably priced too.

The moment we got there everyone were very welcoming and bubbly!
I must to say that Como Garden is beyond any doubt one of the best and authentic Italian restaurant in London!
All dishes were a 10/10.
I cannot recommend this restaurant enough.

Como garden is extremely beautiful.
Foods was very authentic and delicious.
Front of house was 10/10, made our birthday celebration extra special.
Strongly recommend the arancini with honey or syrup, mushroom pasta & almond cake with pistachio ice cream.

Service was good, staff were very kind and positive. Music was an unexpected type and a bit loud for an Italian restaurant. Food was good, but drinks were a bit expensive (£13 each for a mocktail and spritz). Toilets were in terrible condition.

Maître’s was rude and condescending to one of our group who came early, assuring her there was no reservation (in a very offensive manner) when there clearly was. Food is too greasy and heavy on the stomach. No fresh juices. Server brought the bill twice (?). Error on menu with steak tartare marked as vegetarian. Overall impression is of poorly managed business, empty at lunchtime, for a reason!

10/10 Again! You know it's good when you can eat again in the same place, next day and the standard is the same. Food reminds me of when I was in Bari. Tastes wonderfully authentic with delightful execution (Did I mention the quality of the pasta before? I think I need mention again. PERFECTLY COOKED, Soft - No crunchy Durham Wheat!).
Service continued to be of the highest standard. I think this is totally my go to for Italian in London now (Well firmly at number one for quality anyway). Seems a bit unfair to the competition. Oh well. E La Vita

Omg.. Wow! One of the most impressive restaurants I have ever been in. Stunning!
This is a VERY special place. Great service. But the food... Omg the Food. This is the first restaurant to earn my StrangePerfectionRating of FLAWLESS The most delicious perfectly cooked food I have had in years. Culinary perfection. Flawless execution. Finally! Food Clearly cooked and prepared by a proper chef not a secondary school debutant. Absolutely delighted! Pasta you don't have to crunch!! Lobster you can see perfectly throughout the pasta. No need to buy extra. Take notes Garden at the corinthia. THIS is how you do Lobster Linguine. Oh my word. And then the Panacotta! Perfectly set. Ridiculously tasty. I turned into Meg Ryan with every spoonful. I can't wait to return. Bravo! Bravo! 10/10.

The quality of the dishes surprised us to the upside. We ordered various sjaring items. The lamb chips were outstanding as were the chicken in tomato sauce and fried prawns. The only dish that disappointed was the beef tagliatelle, which I would skip in the future. In any case, the menu has plenty of variety so you should find something you like.
Service was excellent. The experience was on the expensive side, but not out of line with the food and service.

Excellent menus, beautiful dishes and a lovely wine list (not too long and carefully chosen). We enjoyed our Brunello very much. The arancini, parmagiana and ravioli were highlights. There was a slight mix up over the order of the dishes which the head waiter rectified quickly. The Gavi di Gavi was not quite as flavoursome or aromatic as we anticipated but overall it was a wonderful meal. We shall be back.

We were really excited to try this place after reading the positive reviews and being lovers of Italian food! The staff were very friendly. The truffle raviolo and the gorgonzola and pear raviolo starters were the highlights. So good! Everything else was average - the mushroom pasta was not very nice, the mushrooms had a really strong taste which was off putting and the sauce tasted like nothing. My partner had the lasagne which he said was average. They do have a lot of vegetarian options which is excellent we had the artichokes and broccoli as sides. The worst thing about the experience was the ambience - really loud road noise, bright lights and awful club type music. The portions are really tiny so you end up needing to order a lot to actually get full so you end up spending a lot of money. Overall disappointing and wont be back.

Very good food, but it can end up being quite pricey with the tapas sized meals: £80 for 2 persons, with no drink.
And next time, maybe the water jar could be left on the table to avoid to have to bother the waiter each time we are thirsty :).
Good moment overall though

It's a lovely room, the faux foliage creates a nice ambience and the tables are tastefully dressed with quality tableware. We'd planned to sit outside, but the noise level from the traffic on the high street made us reconsider. Unfortunately, with all the doors and windows open, it wasn't much quieter inside. We were greeted warmly and the service was friendly and efficient. Fantastic menu and the first couple of dishes were outstanding - zucchini fritti & arancini amatriciana, delicious. We had high hopes for the truffle ravioli, sadly not to our taste - wildly salty & pungent. The lamb cutlets were fine, but nothing to rave about. The chicken with cheese and tomato was rather underwhelming too, nothing wrong per se, but wouldn't order again. I'd certainly go back to try some other dishes and I suspect evening atmosphere would be more relaxing.

I have been a regular client at Como garden since it’s opening. Honestly nothing compares to the food paired with the friendliness of the staff. Every time you come you are guaranteed a wonderful time which is why I am there so often. For anyone who hasn’t been here, you are missing out !
