found this by chance okay the interior is not modern so what But what it lacks in decor it certainly makes up with its food. Proper italian food "just like mama makes" at no price even the house wine was good. If you want a fancy restaurant with mediocre food and fancy prices then there are plenty BUT But if... More

This is a regular haunt and we are well known to the staff. I notice that another reviewer complains that it seems to be almost entirely filled with "regulars" like ourselves, and that does seem to be true to some extent, but what better recommendation could there be for a restaurant than that it is always full of people who...

As an Italian girl... I have to admit that the dinner was gorgeous! My boyfriend and I went to Giacomo's for dinner, no expectations, but our Stracciatella was perfect (exactly the same as my grandmothers), Ravioli home made with Gorgonzola cheese absolutely amazing and I can't believe I had the best tiramisu in London.... and Zabaione... A dinner that reminded... More

They dont make restaurants like this any more - the kind of place where you feel that everything has gone into the food and service instead of into pretentious decor and fancy names for dishes. Great " family" atmosphere - and a special mention for the zabaglione that they whip up on the spot . Next time i will have... More

This was my second visit and I found the food, service and atmosphere to be consistent with my first. Giacomo's unashamedly caters to the elderly in almost every aspect a restaurant can. The decor, were it anywhere else, could be described as kitsch but I don't the think the people running Giacomo's are that self aware. The food, while perfectly... More

I've been with my girlfriend in this restaurant to have a dinner. Despite the service was good and the customer service too, we disappointed the quality of the pizza that looked like not fresh but frozen.

The restaurant is like stepping back into the 70s/80s. The decor is depressing and grim and the food out of a time warp. Not for us. Sorry.

We were staying in a hotel nearby, and had looked up local restaurants before arriving. We booked for dinner on Friday night and we were glad we had as the place was packed. We had also already been in touch to change our reservation time, which was no problem at all. The food was very tasty (bruschetta for starter and... More

We were at this restaurant twenty years ago, and it was very good. It is still run by the same family.The decor is welcoming, the service is excellent, which with the delicious food make for a grand experience. It isn't very big, and you should make a reservation in advance. Everyone will enjoy
