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.
Awesome place to eat. Very nice food. Had a lovely time. Atmosphere was very good. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone. You have to try!!
Lovely hospitality and food excellent. Plenty of it as well. A genuinely authentic Italian restaurant with a great atmosphere and family friendly even for small children.
What a lovely meal we had. Fresh and plentiful. With superb wine, all served with Italian charm! Thank you. We are already planning another visit.
The food was great and the hospitality was brilliant. Massimo is fantastic. Took control of the menu and bought out selections of starters and mains! All tasted amazing, beat lasagne I've ever had and it was gluten free!! Would definitely recommend if you're in Windsor
Very nice food. Meats very good quality and flavoursome. Excellent service. Well looked after as always as same owner of viva Italia which is also another outstanding restaurant, hence why we wanted to try his new restaurant The Italian Steakhouse. Would definitely recommend both of these places to anyone. You would not be disappointed. Amazing
Owner was very attentive and made me a pasta sauce off the menu to cater for my personal preferences. Steak was delicious. Owner was very friendly and engaging throughout our visit. Very good value for money. Excellent tiramisu. Only issues were that the restaurant was a little cold because it was very busy and the ceiling on the way to the bathroom was quite low (my partner hit his head). Cannot wait to go again and would highly recommend to others visiting Windsor.
This is more of a cafe & takeaway than a steakhouse. More like a Nandos than a Cote Brasserie. The food however is really good, reasonably authentic Italian food. Pizzas were great, pasta good, steaks well cooked. Bearing ion mind we had the whole place to ourselves the service was pretty slow and they managed to forget one order complete;y and THEN got it wrong when we'd ordered it for the 2nd time - they were decent about it and removed that from the bill. I'd go back - but not for a special meal out - it's more of a 'quick meal on the way somewhere' kind of place.
Food generally very good and good value. Pizzas very good. Lovely Base and plentiful toppings. The t-bone was a good steak, but unevenly cooked. Best ask to have it cooked medium. Chicken piri piri was just roast chicken served in a spicy red sauce, rather than marinated and oven cooked. Portions are generous. Service good. Decor and layout is a bit odd, a long narrow room with bright green seating all along one wall. I would definitely go back for the pizza and pasta dishes especially, though not somewhere I would book for a "dining out with friends for the evening" experience.
Great food and extremely friendly service. Went with my other half, the food that came was delicious - both steaks were cooked as we ordered. The waiter was polite and friendly, very genuine. The owner even came to us to ask how our meals were and we chatted for a bit after too. All in all a very lovely meal and evening.
Excellent little restaurant, service was very quick did not wait longer to order or for starters and main course and food was of a very good quality. When they found it was my sons birthday they made sure he had a great night and also gave him a present and us shots which was a lovely touch. Would recommend.
