Would like to thank this experienced foodie and reviewer on his in depth review. The waiting staff and chefs get great satisfaction to know that they have given a client a good experience. Thank you.

We have always had good luck with the food here. It seems to be authentic Italian, most dishes are good, but none outstanding, and a few poor. Ambience is nice - quiet, clean, airy, roomy. Service is highly variable - usually odd and disappointing, with...More

Would like to thank this reviewer for his comments. Seemed he liked the food in fact praised it apart from not liking polenta. Therefore seems shame he did not rate us higher.

We had been recommended to this restaurant. First class, lovely menu, food is fresh and tasty, the staff are very friendly, definitely a return visit. There is jazz in a Friday evening. In the summer you can sit outside.

Artigiano shows just how glossy Italian high style can be, with its stylish chrome interior, high-concept lighting, rear glass ceiling, and glass front that opens like pairs of welcoming arms when the weather allows. Don't miss the 'Oscar' donated by a satisfied diner. Lunches are relaxed and calm, while dinners are buzzier. The confident, modern Italian menu's most popular dish is the spaghetti with fresh crab and rocket with a spicy crab sauce. Old favourites have got a delicious new twist, like carpaccio with homemade pesto dressing or calf's liver with wild mushrooms and fava beans. High style, great food. Please be aware, bookings for Saturday nights must be booked at least 2 weeks in advance.
