Push past the operatic overtures that some Italian restaurants in and around London like to make and Italian cuisine blossoms into one of the most beautifully simple cuisines in the world. It’s this kind of downhome, rustic approach that the laconically named Italian Steakhouse likes to bring to table at their use at its Thames Street premises, essentially equidistant from Windsor & Eton Riverside and Windsor & Eton Central stations. Brought to you by the good folks behind Viva L’Italia, Italian Steakhouse pulls no punches in its pursuit of culinary perfection.
As the name might suggest, Italian Steakhouse is a central Windsor spot where lovers of Italian cuisine and a good steak converge. This restaurant specialises in the regional cuisine of Naples, with an obviously carnivorous bent as curated by the family who run the well-know Viva L’Italia restaurant. With a premium location along Thames Street – close to landmarks like the Theatre Royal, Windsor Castle and both Eton Riverside and Windsor Central train stations – Italian Steakhouse is both a local favourite and tourist find.
Steaks, burgers, and grilled dishes given an Italian – and distinctly Neapolitan – twist are the order of the day at Italian Steakhouse in the centre of Windsor. For a bittersweet and broken heart, enter into a culinary tryst with the Italian-style double quarter pounder with chips, a whole grilled chicken with spicy sauce, chips, salad and rice, or go really Italian with the whole chicken Arrabiata. Go on – get the extra spicy topping, too. The awe-inspiring Italian-style T-bone steak weighs in at almost one kilogram raw, while the mixed grill requires at least two people to share it in order to remain legal.
The food was great and well priced, but most impressive was the service, so friendly and welcoming throughout. Has a real charm due it being family run, they create such a warm atmosphere.
The food was excellent despite being reasonably priced. We had excellent service and would absolutely go back if we were in the area. Lasagna was amazing, some of the best we had in England.
The service was great, the staff were really friendly and the food was delicious. Freshly made bread for the Italian burgers we ordered was so unique and we had ordered a pizza for the kids and it had the best homemade fresh pizza base we have ever had and we have been to Italy a few times. The homemade desserts were second to none! :)
