Pre/post Theatre
In true modern caffé-ristorante-pizzeria mode, this Spaghetti House (one of ten in London, the original having opened 50 years ago) has an inviting open bar area where drinks and relaxed meals area served all day, behind which is a welcoming restaurant area for more formal dining. A handful of outdoor tables encourages relaxing in that irresistible Italian urban style - gossip over a cappuccino, or re-raise your energy levels with a plate of pasta and watch the West End world go by. The familiar menu offers bruschetta, panini, salads, lots of fish dishes, pasta, pizzas, steaks, and delicious home-made desserts. The same warm Italian welcome is extended to diners entertaining at lunch as to those out with friends of an evening.

Nice enough little restaurant and very comfortable seating and ambience, but food wasn’t great. Ordered a simple tomato and basil pasta and a pesto pasta, both arriving at the table within a couple of minutes of being ordered, and weren’t flavoursome at all. Service was ok at best, when you could get the attention on the waiting staff. There’s definitely much better Italian restaurants to go to, at a similar or cheaper price not to far away from here.

We ate here for lunch before going to the theatre...
The staff were very friendly and helpful and the food was lovely..
Great that they do small portions as well as normal size as pasta can be very filling..would definitely go back..x

I booked this restaurant for a post theater dinner for my mother's birthday. We arrived 20 mins early but the restaurant was able to accommodate us as it was empty, it was around 5:40pm. The waiters were not very welcoming or friendly. The service was slow even though the restaurant was empty. The food was below average. One of my party ordered calamari and when it arrived it was all batter and the calamari was dried out and hard. The mains were below average. I was very disappointed with the food and the service. The restuarant did not even acknowledge that the booking was for a birthday, it was only when i mentioned it whilst paying the bill they offered to bring a complimentary cake with a candle but by then i felt it was too late. It was definitely not the kind of birthday dinner I had planned for my mother. I would definitely not recommend the place and the lack of ambiance in the restaurant was made worse by the building works going on outside.

The food was average. My Pollo y Funghi tasted as if the chicken had been pre cooked, very dry and chewy.
The service was so slow we gave up on dessert went to the counter for the bill

Usually spaghetti houses are reliable and good value. Service on this occasion was very slow and they weren't busy. That is not acceptable. Food was good to usual standard.

Excellent and reasonably priced corner Italian.

We had a mixed group and we wanted a place that is easy for everyone. We had excellent entrees and good pasta and every piece of food was really nice. Do not expect foams or aged meats, but if you want to have comfort food in a friendly environment then you have found it.

This was the first time at Spaghetti House Bryanston. The food was tasty and the portions were large. We were a bit pressed for time and the food arrived later than we would have wished, but the staff handled this in a very friendly and professional manner taking full responsibility. We'll be back.

We decided to book here for a late snack and drink after the theatre. There were four of us, we all had starters which were very nice, bruschetta, pate, calamari, salad, fries. Very good service, nothing too much trouble, they even arranged complimentary dessert plate with happy birthday for friend Rachel, I noted it on the reservation when booking.

Nice ambience, however had to advise staff of lack of prawns in a linguine dish - 2! Staff took it back to kitchen and brought out a new portion. Nice experience however very expensive for a chain restaurant. Will not be going back.

Had a very nice meal here earlier this week. The choice was amazing. Sadly the only negative was that the specials menu was given to us and when we placed our order the special main meal wasn't available which is what I would have liked. Can't see the point of giving you the choice of the specials menu when it has already sold out. Apart from that, a great night.

There is simply nothing special about this restaurant. Food portions are relatively small and the taste was nothing spectacular. We had reservations but were seated in the bar area. Server was good but they seem to push you along.

when i saw the name of the place i didn't expect much, but i must say that the place is great and the food is very good.
We where full from the starter itself (sea food mix) which was very good.
the pasta was great too (carbonara and special).
you can see the quality of the place when they pouring fresh grana padano to your plate.

Wonderful Saturday lunch - the service was outstanding - thank you Piotr. The whitebait was some of the best I've ever had - not too big and not greasy. The salmon was well cooked and the pane cotta was divine! My partner had the asparagus - perfectly cooked, a brilliant spaghetti bolognese - the only negative was the semi-alfredo which was a bit heavy on the cinnamon - the waiter's wine recommendation was much appreciated. Will go again.

The restaurant is a good choice for Italian food. The food was good and fast. The service was just okay. We were waiting for a table and the manager came across as rude when he asked us (and others) to wait in a different area and the waitress had too many tables so she could not give any of them the proper attention. It was reasonably priced.

Great restaurant with very friendly staff and ambience. The food is consistently good quality and we always enjoy our meal here. Never feel rushed and can happily sit and chat for hours. Fab desert and coffee combined option on the coffee menu. Worth looking out for this.

Service was fantastic and both the food and menu were great to. Will definately go back. Booked for after the theatre for New Years Eve and had a lovely evening. Our waitress really looked after us and made the night very special. We both enjoyed great food tucked away in a romantic corner and there was so much choice on the menu. Thanks to everyone.

This is the second time I have eaten at a Spaghetti House and have thoroughly enjoyed both occasions. This was part of our office Christmas do and they didn't disappoint. Although this is a chain it doesn't feel like it, you are made to feel very welcome and the service is extremely good. The food was good although my starter was a little bland the rest of the meal made up for it. Staff very attentive and the Manager was extremely professional and everyone seemed very happy. Will always consider Spaghetti House when up in London in the future.
