Great restaurant. Have eaten here many times. It never disappoints. Why do I have to post twenty five words to express my opinion? It's very annoying and sets up a situation where I will never provide a rating again!

Although we dined on a quiet evening, we thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The service was exceptional and the food far exceeded expectations. The freshly made Tiramisu capped of a most enjoyable meal.

Excellent classic "City" restaurant. They know enough to leave you alone if you are talking business, but the service is quick and good if you you have limited time.

Faultless! Food was spot on, service (as always) first class. Old school City Italian that's miles ahead on service. Will be again again - soon

Food was good but a bit overly priced. I was asked if I would like some vegetables at the side of my meal and I chose broccoli out of the few types of vegetables there was and I was given one and a half florets. Not impressed when I look at the bill. They charged £3 for the broccoli and on top of that there was also a cover charge of £2.50 for booking the table. When I booked the table online, I requested in the special request box for a small birthday surprise arrangement for the birthday person I was having lunch with but nothing was arranged. Very disappointed!

Very convenient for those in the City. This was my second visit. Very welcoming on entry, and attentive but not too attentive service. Food was of a high quality - lovely in fact. Good ambience and pleasant décor and surroundings. Would definitely go again. Made to feel you mattered as a customer.

Boltons is by far the best restaurant in the City. The service and food are both exceptional and in incredible surroundings. I have worked in the City for 30 years and never found a restaurant that even comes close, if you haven't been yet then what are you waiting for...

The welcome by the staff at this restaurant is always a delightful part of the experience. The waiters all have a good sense of humour and looked after us very well. The food was excellent too. Overall a very pleasant dining experience, I shall be going back for sure.

It's been a while since I went to Bolton's but happy to see that nothing (absolutely nothing) has changed - great food, great service (attentive but not bothersome) and tables far enough apart to be able to hold a conversation but close enough to create a lively atmosphere.

Really like this place for a mixture of good food (I had asparagus with parmesan, dover sole and a few fresh juicy strawberries and a coffee to finish), washed down with a nice Gavi di Gavi, attentive service (lots of smiling italian waiters) and buzzing lunchtime city vibe.

Another excellent meal at what must now be my favourite restaurant. My first try in the evening. Great to find the familiar faces from lunchtime and enjoy the quiet surroundings. Lovely food, well served and an excellent wine!

A bit like stepping back in time to the City of 20 years ago - but sometimes that is what you want. First class service delivered with warmth and genuine customer focus. Wide choice on the menu and good food delivered. Definitely would return.

I was told that this was a great restaurant.....but it was even better than my expectations. Everything was wonderful. I thought the Dover sole was going to be hard to beat....but the pepper steak did!

Busy, loads of atmosphere. Excellent food & service. Air con very cool on our shoulders & necks whilst sitting in the Upper level, although understandably, very necessary. Next time would book table on lower level.

Excellent Italian restaurant, well placed right in the back of Lloyd's building so perfect for a business lunch. Being an Italian I can guaratee that the food quality is equal to the one you coul get in any good restaurant in Italy.

Food, service and ambiance always superb. It was very busy and the private dining room was used as an overflow but the people in there didn't seem to mind.

Absolutely first class. The best food in the City but A1 service also. This is the best Italian restaurant in the City of Londo by a long way.
